I get mine at Ralph's, packaged under the Kroger brand.

Looking through the lists, I remembered sometime in the 1980's there was a cranberry "fig" newton. I liked them for a time period. I don't think they make them anymore. I used to eat RyKrisp in place of bread at lunch. The company went out of business a few years ago. Other rye crackers just aren't the same or even a good substitute.

There wasn't really anything on those lists I miss. I did eat cinnamon tic tacs years ago and bought my kids green or purple ketchup one time for fun.

I see Jiffy Pop at my local Kroger and Walmart. It's also available at Amazon.

Space Food sticks. My mother never bought them for us--too many kids in my family for the price. We built a full size Spaceship in school when I was a kid. Each one of us got to spend a class period in it and drink Tang and eat Space food sticks. The day it was my turn there were no Space Food Sticks. I was very disappointed as that was my one chance

So Necco Wafers, candy hearts, candy buttons (the ones stuck to paper), Mary Janes, and Clark Bars are on 'Last Call'. Get 'em while you can.
This makes me sad--no Necco wafers.

It seems to me you can still order those from at least one of the "nostalgia" candy outlets on the Internet? Many treats you don't see sold in stores are still available there!

No more Necco? I loved the “chocolate” wafers when I was a kid!

No kidding. It's like a thinner, harder Tums. My mom used to get a roll and share them out between us kids as a "special treat." I think the idea was to make us hate candy.

I love the Vermont Country Store for long forgotten favorites. Like those flat raisin biscuit cookies.
