O'Boise's are O-Boisterous!!!

before soccer games, I would fix a bowl of peanut butter cap'n crunch, then pour a coke over it in lieu of milk. sometimes, I'd have to pour tab because that's what was in the fridge (my mama was a tab junkie).

"Bazooka Bubble Gum (in a tube)
Bazooka made a gum in the 80's that was in a tube like a toothpaste tube. Messy stuff, and very, very soft till it was chewed for a while."

Those O'Boises were great! I think the TGIF chips are almost the same thing.

My step-dad (still) drinks NOTHING but Tab and coffee.

What were the wine coolers that had the Ye Olde Timey labels on them. Big hits down at afternoons at Sardis.

Chipwich and Steakum. The real Breakfast of champions.

California Coolers?

Donkey--dig up a link to a California Cooler label.

i should have asked my gum question here:

the bubble gum flavored gum w/ a pink liquid goo center. I don't think it was freshen up since they list that as mint flavored

i can even remember the package (shades of pink) had a picture of the (pink)gum w/ a cutatway section showing the (darker pink)goo oozing out. It's driving me crazy that I can't remember what this gum was called.
Posted: Jan 25, 2006 6:59 pm
 
Windy -- wasnt it called something like Blast?
Posted: Jan 25, 2006 7:04 pm
 
I don't know???? My head is full of nasty goo!!!
Posted: Jan 25, 2006 7:11 pm
 
Freshen Up actually had a bubblegum flavor. Im pretty positive thats what you are talkin about, as I can picture the package(cutaway section with darker pink goo) well. I also think that Chocodiles were a food of the 80's, sort of a chocolate twinkie. I used to drink the hell out of some coolers in jr/high school. It was California and a brand called Calvin Coolers...really sweet, but did the trick.
Posted: Jan 25, 2006 7:29 pm
 
Freshen Up definitely. they still make it. pink package with pink guts.
Chewels as well...same stuff.
Posted: Jan 25, 2006 7:32 pm
 
freshen up it is!

I LOVE chocodiles - can you still get 'em? much better than ding dongs any day.
Posted: Jan 25, 2006 7:34 pm
 
Are ding dongs (the snack, sicko) still wrapped in foil?
Posted: Jan 25, 2006 7:43 pm
 
Ding Dongs are no longer wrapped in foil... they come two to a package in some plastic like wrapper w/ the Ding Dong image on the front. I tried to track down a quantity of them last time we had a Ding Dong Lounge anniversary show - I found most of my Ding Dongs in Michigan... Hostess plant there.

Foiled again...

I used to wake up with frankenberry or nintendo cereal. They should make an X box cereal that flies into your mouth at light speed while shooting sugar lazers and then digests itself

I think Taco should've been the "breakout" Dorito flavor, not Nacho cheese. They were MSG-licious. Frito-Lay had Taco Doritos all the way back in the mid-70's. They seemed to dissappear in the early 90's when they started introducing a bunch of new flavors. Frito-Lay also used to have "plain" Doritos, which were their main dippin' tortilla chip until they introduced Tostitos in the 80's sometime.

Anyone remember Frankenstuff? It was a hot dog that was somehow impregnated with chili inside the dog. It was nowhere near as delicious as it sounds.

Poll: What did you call the fantastic red, white & blue shaped like a rocket popsicles?

Was it Bikram? How the hell do they get the room up to 105 degrees? My thermostat only goes up to 90.
Posted: Jan 26, 2006 10:34 pm
 
BK bundles. Little White Castle style burgers. Burger King rules!
Posted: Jan 26, 2006 11:15 pm
 
Bomb Pops! That was it. I heard someone call them by another name and I think they are called something else entirely these days.

No, no Bikram, that stuff is bullshit. American kick ass masochistic ridiculousness. It was just Vinyasa flow and I am way out of shape. Felt really great though. Highly encourage it.

Cheese-loaf is timeless and cannot be relegated to just one decade.

Those impregnated chilidogs were nasty, though.

For reals! I never used it in sandwiches, I always just pushed the cheese out and ate it seperate.
