Circa 2001-2003, General Mills had a snack called Wahoos (almost like a flat Bugle with seasoning on it) that I really liked. It was a major flop though and only lasted a couple years.

I miss Nabisco Twigs crackers. They were cheese and sesame sticks. So yummy. Now Cheeze Its, Wheat Thins and Triscuits take up the entire cracker isle.

You NEED to read The Dorito Effect.
I'm going to look that up.

In return, I'll recommend (not to derail the thread, just responding)
-- "What to Eat" by Marion Nestle. Don't let the title fool you. Publishers....go figure. I thought it was a diet book. Turns out it's about the industrial food complex, and is an expose' on "what we eat." It reads like you're going through the grocery store...with chapters named for store departments: fish, produce, dairy, etc. It. is. excellent! Some tidbits: why eggs, poultry, dairy fall under the fed oversight departments they do, why you can't trust that seafood that's labeled as "wild caught" really is, the fight over labeling hormone-free milk, the big anti Stevia war waged by Big-Sugar, why there are plenty of coupons for junk food, but none for produce.

-- Also, "In Defense of Food" and "The Omnivore's Dilemma" by Michael Pollan as well.

Those little candy cigarettes and the little wax 'soda' bottles (you could chew the wax after drinking the little droplet of sweetened 'juice' inside).

Cadburys Stroudles.. they came out in the 70s in an apple shaped packet.. small pieces of apple covered in Cadburys milk chocolate but for some reason after two years they were taken off the market.. same as Skippy chocolate biscuites, they came out by Cadbury in the early 60s chewy wafer covered in thick chocolate..

Nothing new here. We're hard-wired to want these foods because there was a time in the history of man when food was scarce and we needed to pack on calories when we could; survival tactic. As for texture (crunch, etc.), there's a whole science behind that.
