    I love Vienette - we can buy it in Australia under brand name of Streets ice cream. Yum
    We also have star bars & curly wurly bars (yum also)
    I miss the polly waffle bar . Marshmallow surrounded by wafer & coated in chocolate. It was awesome

    Wow, we're doing well in the UK. We have Curly Wurlys, Star Bars, Vienetta (2 varieties...vanilla and mint choc chip) and Chicken Tonight. We used to have a chocolate bar called Marathon, but it was the same as a Snickers bar.

    The american thing that I miss the most is Minute Maid Orange Soda...the one they used to serve at Disney. I assume it disappeared because of the luminous orange colouring which was probably packed with additives!!

    This thread is making me remember a whole bunch of my favourite childhood treats, like Vienetta and the paw shaped cheetos:thumbsup2 Another one I just remembered was the phantom ice cream bar with the gumball nose that could only be bought from the "dicky-dee" (the big ice cream cooler attached to the front of a bike). Those things were so good, they also had a badeball mitt shaped one with a gumball baseball but the phantom one was better.

    You can still get Dunkaroos here sometimes.

    I'm so glad you said this! I couldn't for the life of me remember the name! My dad would give me tiny sliver and he and my mom would eat it all!!!:furious:

    I really miss purple and green ketchup! It used to really gross my mom out, but my little sister and I would always ask for it. :rotfl:

    How about the original fruit snacks? I think they were called Fun Fruits? They tasted much better than the ones they make now. They might have even come in yogurt covered?

    Yes they were called Fruit Funs. They did taste better, my brother was obsessed with them! My mother still calls all fruit gummies "fruit funs".

    I loved those. Recently saw the cans in Shoprite, but it's not the same.

    Ben and Jerry's Dastardly Mash ice cream. Chocolate ice cream with chocolate pieces, raisins, and pecans. It was like a chunky bar, but ice cream. :cool1:

    Howard Johnson's Macaroni & Cheese
    Howard Johnson's Toastees
    Howard Johnson's Fried Clams
    Howard Johnson's Chicken Croquettes

    When I lived in Upstate NY we could get these items in the frozen food case. I loved them all, but especially the Toastees. They were like toastable corn bread shaped like a Pop Tart. Served with butter, and you were in heaven.

    Whenever I ate at HoJo's I almost always ordered the fried clams. On occasion the croquettes. And always, their Pistashio Ice Cream for dessert.

    Also, at their restaurants (we're talking 1960s here) the milk was dispensed from a big stainless steel box with a spigot. It sat on the back counter with the other drink dispensers. I was a kid and always got milk. I swear they added a little vanilla and sugar to the milk. Their milk was tasty like a milk shake. Over the decades I have fixed my glasses of milk this same way sometimes, and it's always good.

    Loved, loved Charlie Chips in the can. We had the same driver for years.

    I miss Cheese Tidbits. Tibits? I can't remember. They were longer, but sort of along the lines of a Cheezit.

    There used to be a seasoning pack that you would stir into tuna. Loved that stuff!
