Old Craving Stuff

I'm just posting photos of snacks from my childhood that I really miss. I'm just in a nostalgic mood.

Drake's Cakes aren't readily available in Georgia which is a good thing since I don't need the extra fat. I can't decide which is best: Devil Dogs, Yodels, Funnybones, Swiss Rolls or the Apple Pies...damn, the thought bring a tear to my eye.
(Little Debbies are the popular snack cakes here. Sigh)

I miss the Good Humor truck and the Good Humor dude on the beach! The boxed bars found in the grocery store just aren't the same to me. (Another tear)

Wise Onion and Garlic potato chips - I haven't seen these for years - the bag in the photo isn't the one I knew and loved.

The Cadbury "Air Bar" with the bubbles was my favorite - alas - can't find them these days. My father got a case of these at an estate sale and all of us were hooked.

What snacks do you miss?

What about Jello Pudding pops?

Dear Bill Cosby,
Please bring them back.

I can't think with all the snacks that you put up. MMMMMMMMMM. I'm drooling.

I used to love the strawberry shortcake bar! I used to buy that all the time from the ice cream man that came by.

I like those Drumstick ice cream cone things, and not just because they have nuts.

I always hated wise chips but I loved the Swiss Rolls. I would have tea (which was Pepsi) and I would cut the roll into sclices. And I miss the Almond Good Humor Bars.

I loved funny bones, sadly haven't had those in years. We have an ice cream truck (ok it's actually a van) that comes around on saturdays, every once in a while I stop him outside our gate just to look, in hopes of spotting something from my childhood. Like say a fudgeicle. no luck.

Jell-O Pudding pops... chocolate and vanilla swirl!

They've come back, now marketed by Popsicle brand and not in the original shape. They'll do, but they're not as good.

Wise Onion Rings (like Funyons). I actually am searching for a Wise dealer in my area as we speak.

Great post idea, Jali.

I miss Chocolate Soldiers and peanut patties (you know, the red candy with peanuts in it).

Oh the good ole days!

Big Strawberry Shortcake and Chocolate Eclair fan. It's about ice cream truck time! Yay! Can you believe those things cost more than a dollar now??????

Fret not, my friend! There is no need to go without Drakes even though we live in the Southeast:
