I used to LOVE Birdseye pick up stix ! They were like the pizza rolls now but bigger! I even remember the jingle ! It was a little catchy tune!


"Pick up , Pick up stix, they only take a few short minutes to fix, Pick up, Pick up stix! Yeah Birdseye pick up stix "!


They really didn't take that long to cook, but of course you had to put them in the regular over, it was before microwaves!

1. Back in the early 70's Campbell Soup had a tomato soup with small O -shaped pasta. I was addicted to it during my second pregnancy. But one day it disappeared.

2. In the 80's I loved Cracker Jack Cereal! But for some reason it was discontinued. I never knew why! It was so yummy!

I had never heard of Pick Up Stix or Cracker Jack cereal, but they sound good.

My entries:

-Pillsbury frozen regular size blueberry waffles (unlike Eggo's, these actually had flavor to them)

- 123 Jello (3 layer, multi-variety jello)

-Doodads snack mix (if you turned the package upside down, it spelled "spapoop")

-Barnone candy bar. Sort of a cross between a Kit Kat and a Whatchamacalit, with no shortage of chocolate and crushed peanuts. Later versions contained caramel. Lots of people want this back.

-7 up bar. Never had this as it was before my time, but it sounds so good. Basically, a box of mix chocolates in candy bar form with 7 sections, each containing a different flavor. Discontinued because it reminded people too much of 7 up the drink.

-PB Maxx - another thing I didn't get to try, but really wanted to. Sort of like the shape of a Bun, but loaded with peanut butter and peanuts. Discontinued also because of a stupid reason: The Mars folks hated peanut butter.

-Pepperidge Farm Salzburg cookies: delightfully textured mocha cookie. Discontinued, but 80 million versions of the horrid Milanos are still around.

-Swanson fish tv dinner.

-Klondike NASCAR bars. Round klondikes with caramel and peanuts.

-The big Lunchables, with 2 meats, 2 cheeses, 2 types of crackers, a chocolate mint and a packet of Dijon mustard.

-Just Right and Clusters cereal

-Bubble Eez Bubble gum. The softest bubble gum ever, shaped in a big gumball, came 6 to a pouch and had the catchiest jingle in the recorded history of Planet Earth. Apparently discontinued because some packages contained traces of cocaine (?!)

-Cheez it Twists. Two flavors in one twisted cheez it.

-lots of flavors of Snapple, including Mint tea. Didn't try some of them because Snapple has always been hard to get in my area.

Not sure if these are still around, but Catherine Clark bread and Pepperidge Farm cheese sticks, the latter of which was flat out addictive.

I never heard of Cracker Jack cereal either. I think I remember the tomato soup with pasta? What I can't find anymore that I used to like was Campbell's curly noodle soup!


And Wiseguy 182, I don't like those Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies either!

-Wendy's salad bars. I'm guessing they got rid of these because they took up a lot of space in the restaurant. Also, the old Caesar side salads they had up until the mid-late 2000's. Now every salad they have has a bunch of nuts and fruit on it. Gross.

-Sweet Spots Cookies. flipping AWESOME small, circular shortbread cookies with a Heshey's kiss in the middle. Around in 1992 or thereabouts.

-Almost Home cookies. With the old-fashioned country home embroidered on the package, similar to Soft Batch.

-Giggles cookies.

-Peanut Butter putters, anyone remember these? A little before my time and I never had them, but they looked so good. Peanut butter and oats I believe, next to nothing about them on the internet.

Jimmy Dean Tastefuls. A competitor to Lunchables that offered more food: two decent size sandwiches, a bag of potato chips or other snack, and a name-brand dessert. Notable for Jimmy Dean taking a wicked verbal jab in the commercials stating that Lunchables were "not a lunch". Good concept, but the sandwiches were rather bland tasting. Perhaps a little retooling might have worked wonders.

Chocolate Dipped Altoids




These weren't around that long and I believe they launched in the mid-to-late 2000s.

One of my favourites thats been discontinued is GOLDEN GRAIN MACARONI AND CHEDDER!!!!! (mmmmmmmmmmmmm it was my favourite mac and cheese of all time (Sadly the company sold that division of thier company in 1986))

http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...g=6003,4770606

Here is a commercial for it.. BRINGS ME TO TEARS!!

www.youtube.com/v/TNCUEslvovY


I also miss PRE-2000 M&Ms like crazy!!

I asked the company if they would consider using WATER instead of SKIM MILK.. (It wont taste as bad as it does with SKIM MILK) They didnt reply to me.... (No surprise)

I didnt realise how much they are trying to keep this in the dark until I found a WIKI page discussing M&M candies a couple years ago and ya know how you can edit the pages??

I added in that they changed all thier candy recipes IN THE YEAR 2000 to skim milk from reg milk (I didnt comment about the taste I just added that) and my comments were removed!! (Twice I added it and both times they were deleted) -- That told me right there!!!!!!

For a year MARS lied to me saying they didnt change anything.... THEY MUST THINK IM AN IDIOT THAT CANT READ OR TASTE ANYTHING!!! (they must think most are and dont like those like ME who dont take thier BS and stand up to them)

A little down in the weeds, but Mocha flavor Carnation Instant Breakfast. Discontinued so they could put a 3rd type of chocolate in the variety pack.
