I loved Bugles when I was a kid, which was certainly not in the 90s, lol. I would fill the inside with onion dip and then CRUNCH.
Agree. They're disappointing. Not fresh and buttery.

Yes. Either Cracker Barrel or the Vermont Country Store sell "nostalgic candies".

Going back a bit farther (70s-80s?), two things I remember from when I was kid that I don't see anymore are Tang and fruit rollups.

Tank was around in the 1960s.

There were only 3 on that list that I ever tried, and liked. Bugles and Potato Stix are still available today, and I will buy them once in a while, though more often Pik Nik Shoestrings than Potato Stix .

Dippin Dots are available today at 7 different locations at T-Mobile Park home of the Seattle Mariners. Well, at least if you go there for a game.

Tang and fruit roll-ups are still available on Amazon and at Walmart. Fruit Roll-ups are probably at every supermarket as the kids all love them.

Sprinkle some of the powdered butterscotch pudding mix on ice cream. YUM. Or mix 1/2 teaspoon of the powder with a bit of water and drizzle on ice cream.
