I started reading a different thread on the same subject and was sent here! Oh well! lol A couple months ago I was at the Fred's Dollar Store and found Necco Wafers, like I used to buy at the movies. Hadn't seen them in a long time. Still tasty! Somebody mentioned they hadn't seen a Milkshake candy bar in a while. Found one of them too!! I remember they used to sell packages of the regular size Milkshakes, Milky Ways, and 3 Musketeers with popsicle sticks in the packages. The commercials on TV told you to put the sticks in the end of the candy bar and put in the freezer. I liked the Milk Shake and 3 Musketeers that way. The caramel in the Milky Way got way too hard.

Hersey bars were my favorite and I remember they would melt in your mouth. Now they are more like wax and don't even melt in your hands. I just don't buy Hershey anymore - I prefer Dove choclolate

Frozen, chocolate-dipped bananas from the Fun Zone on the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, CA. They were the originals and are still delicious.

Second only to that, David's sunflower seeds which used to cost a nickel for a package, as did most candy bars in the day.

Many of the "old" candies are available from the Vermont Country Store and others. JuJuBees are hard to come by, however. They lasted forever!

Favorite snack was a TastyKake Chocolate Junior. My favorite candy bar was the Fifth Avenue (made by Luden's in Reading, my home town).

I used to love Ding Dongs, especially frozen. I hadn't had them for years but saw them on sale so bought a box. They switched from the foil wrap to plastic, and the taste is not good. Dry and sorta bitter or burnt tasting or something not good.

My favorite was also a Chocolate Junior. I used to pull the two layers apart and eat them separately. My favorite candy was always a frozen Reese Cup~~still one of my favorites.

My favorite candy was chocolate babies....they stopped making them for obvious reasons, but they were really good. (made by the heide candy company) and ring dings for snacks. They at one point made them with chococlate cream filling and white icing (they were the bomb!)
