While I'm here, did anyone else make those Rice Crispies squares that were so totally delicious? You used marshmallows. They came out all gooey and sweet. I always wanted to eat the entire batch. I've bought imitation ones and they were awful.

Good times!
Heh, me, too! Actually, did the same with powdered hot chocolate mix.

O.M.G. yes. They were so addictive! I haven't had them since ... the 1980's, I think? No, wait. I had one at a party about ten years ago. I dare not make them.

I haven't found a *normal* Sweet Tart in years. You can get the little ones, and you can find (sometimes) the chewy variety. But not the ones that came 2 in a package, each a little bigger than a silver dollar, for the same price as a candy bar.

SCREAMING YELLOW ZONKERS...

Xpect Discounts sometimes carries that, but the Xpect around here closed last year so I can't get them anymore. I could eat an entire box of those golden nuggets of sugary perfection in a single sitting.

Cereals: Quisp and Quake. Quisp came back to Big Y but it's not the same as it used to be, the consistency's changed and it becomes soggy almost immediately when milk is added, rather than taking - well - maybe a whole minute. Not that it mattered much, I preferred it dry out of the box. But it mushes in my mouth too quick too now.

Stop & Shop (a big-chain supermarket primarily in Connecticut and Massachusetts) used to make a streusel-topped cinnamon raisin bread that was out of this world. Haven't seen it in decades.

Was Ovaltine malted? I remember my mom buying a chocolate malt powder; it was the only way she could get me to drink milk! (I still don't like milk.)

Ovaltine comes in chocolate and chocolate malt flavors. I have 2-3 glasses of the chocolate malt every week. It is also good sprinkled on vanilla ice cream.

That's the ticket! I used to like and dip from the sugar bowl, too.

When my mother was a girl, she participated in a small town parade as a member of the Ovaltiney group. They sang this song:

I remember in the late 1960s when a lot of space program related food started being marketed, and we were very excited about them for a while. Tang, and freeze dried ice cream. And some kind of sweet sticks - I can't remember what they were called - like string cheese but sweet, and who knows what they were made out of.
