They still have Pepsi Throwback here in the states. Forget if they had a glass bottle edition (it's usually Coke that does that).

My list:
 
1. Mad Hatter Potato Chips
 
2. Krun-Chee Potato Chips
 
3. Green Onion Flavour Potato Chips
 
4. Neilson's Jersey Milk Treasures
 

 

 
Jersey Milk Treasures were like boxed chocolate but in a standard chocolate bar. The flavours of the individual pieces were strawberry cream, bordeaux, nougat, caramel, praline and turkish delight. This and the liquid Four Flavours below were discontinued by Cadbury Schweppes when they took over Neilson's in 1996.
 
5. Neilson's Liquid 4 Flavours
 
Liquid Four Flavours were like Caramilk but squarer and covered with dark chocolate. The soft fillings were chocolate, vanilla, caramel and my favourite, bordeaux!

6. Neilson's Peppermints and Neilson's Caramels. Like Rolo.

7. Neilson's Nutty.
 

 
I've already phoned in a couple of death threats to Cadbury but they refuse to reinstate the above chocolates. You just can't reason with these multi-national conglomerates.
 
8. Christie's Butter Tarts
 
Incredibly messy two packs available at corner variety stores!

They have to be refillable glass bottles though carrying a deposit. Twouldn't taste right or be right otherwise.
 
Here are a few pictures of my kitchen pantry in which I store my bottle and glass collection:

Adams Sour Apple gum
Wacky Wafer
A baked treat I can barely remember and have no name for: a small chocolate cake with a cavity in the center filled with banana-flavored cream. My mother used to buy them at Safeway in the early 70s, possibly made by Hostess but I'm not positive.

That was the Banana Dream, by Mickey (ABC). I believe it's been discussed it this thread, and it has its own thread.

Won't it be ironic if Twinkies ends up added to this discussion! Who could ever imagine?

I miss Dreshels (sp?) frozen cakes, and Stouffers frozen cupcakes.
 
I have not been a big Hostess fan for a few years, but it looks like we will be missing them, too, as existing supplies are sold out. Someone will buy the brands, and maybe improve quality. I note that the experts think that the brand names, alone, will sell for more than a year of annual sales for the former maker.
 
Labor said that management was poor, and management says that labor was greedy. Maybe they were both right. I doubt that the new brand owner will be looking for employees from either camp.

They need to bring back a lot of snacks like taco dorritos, jello 1-2-3, a dessert called "shake a pudding"-it had a special jar and you dumped the mix and milk into it and shook it up.  It was yummy.   There also was a diet drink called Tab and they briefly made a black cherry version that was so good.  It was in the early 80's.  I could only find it in Northern Ky.  Does anyone remember "Slow Pokes" ?  It was  a gooey piece of caramel wrapped in chocolate on a stick.  They were really chewy and took awhile to eat.

Elise-Slo Pokes were actually not covered in chocolate. Black Cows were covered in chocolate. I remember because I broke a tooth on a frozen slo poke when I was 10, and have a gold crown to this day as a result. They are available , still.......

It's a long relatively long lattice-shaped firm caramel covered with chocolate (or was; let me look it up to make sure it still exists....)
 
Ah! OK, the Marathon Bar was the Mars American edition of Cadbury's Curly Wurly bar (still manufactured). However, to confuse things further, there what was called the Marathon in the UK was more similar to the American Snickers bar, and is currently called that.

All the Mars bars of the 50's were wider and flatter, especially the 3 musketeers,that had three sections, with three different flavors, vanilla,chocolate and strawberry,scored so you could break it into 3 sections and share,see "3" musketeers. Now they should bring that one back!!!!

Sunshine Raisin Biscuits (Keebler) ...
though there are traditional versions of this known as Garibaldi Biscuits that have a currant filling rather than raisin.
 
I've also had a craving for Stella d'Oro Egg Biscuits ... though these are still made and available somewheres, I have not seen them in any store in ages.
 
Been craving the original Carnation Breakfast Bars too.

I remember those Stoned Wheat Thins (great with cheese spreads)...didn't they come in several varieties?  It looks like you can still get them through Amazon.
 
The bacon horseradish dip is a new one to me, though.

Screaming Chicken - The dip was very good, and I can't even find another brand that makes them. 
 
I think those stoned wheat thins only came in one flavor but two sizes - minis, and the other the size of a saltine.  Try the ones from Whole Foods.  They're very unique, nothing else really like them and I tried a lot of others before finding the ones at Whole Foods.

My Dad (even to his dying day) was trying to get Durkee to make Olive Butter again, or give him the recipe....to no avail. All my life growing up it was a staple w/ "Neptune" premium Sardines in chiles on Rye Toast. Durkee stopped making it, and then Stinson's Sardines in Prospect Harbor closed (Neptune was the 'Cadillac" over their Beech Cliff brand) near our house in WH...the last Sardine Packing house in the USA. I miss my Dad...

Heluva Good, which started out in Sodus, NY was always a regional brand. After the H.P. Hood dairy outfit bought them, distribution expanded. While the dips and condiments are still made in upstate NY, cheese product production is now handled by Schreiber Foods in Wisconsin. Schreiber produces most of the supermarket house brand shredded cheese sold on peg hooks around here.
