Niner is going to pounce all over this thread like a cat on a laser light pointer.

In this thread, we will discuss foods and drinks we like that once were, but are no more. AND we must try to find pictures of each... But since not all of you are as old as I am, I will not limit this thread to things that are new, but may not be around forever...

On to my thread!

At one point I drank gallons of Pepsi Black Cherry Vanilla Jazz. Now it be nowhere. Oh it was delicious and mixed really well with silver Rum... This stuff was actually around for a long time. A couple of years if memory serves me right.

Yeah that's the stuff right there...smooth as a baby's behind....

Anyways!

I take you back to 1986, I was about 12 years old, and I used to mac on this cereal for breakfast called "Rocky Road". It's breakfast equivalent to a diabetic coma. No, there were no fancy toys inside, but a bowl full of chocolaty goodness instead. The marsh mellows were covered with chocolate and nuts. Sometimes I would even throw a couple of spoonfuls of nestle quick on top of it just to make it more interesting. Then I would become "The Great Cornholio" and I was off to school. I was in the marching band back then, so I would go to school from 7 to 3, and then off to band practice from 4 to 6. That is a long day, and I needed all the energy I could get. In a world before energy drinks, what could I do right?

About a hundred years ago....ok well the 90's may as well be a hundred years ago. From 1990 to the early mid 90's, We had a candy called PB Max. We can only guess that the PB stood for Peanut Butter which the candy had a lot of, and I mean real creamy peanut butter like the stuff you put on toast and sandwiches, not the surgery stuff that you find in a Reese's. Plus it was filled with whole peanuts and covered in thick chocolate fudge! That was some damn fine candy though...

Ok, well how about this!

Have you tried these?

http://www.netfoodie.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/spicy-sweet-chili-doritos-review.jpg

Sounds gross I know... I discovered these by accident. I grabbed the nearest Doritos bag I could find at Subway, and only when I got back to work did I realize the flavor. But they are tangy and delicious. I don't assume they will be around that long. Doritos have come in many flavors over the years. This is one of many, but I suggest you try them.

I know there is more that I just can't think of right now, more later maybe.

I must immediately repress any feelings and memories I may possess for a food item once it is no longer readily available to me, lest my righteously fueled rage be unleashed on the streets of middle America. As such, I can only offer up a recently departed food item.

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you, the Volcano Taco. This baby was heaven wrapped in a crispy shell and garnished with a sprinkling of cheese, radio active lava sauce, and the cream of the sours.

What has sicence done!?

Anyhow, I totally agree with Surge, Crispy M&Ms, and Midnight Black Mt. Dew. All where amazing. Vault is close to Surge, but not quite right.

All I can think of right now that hasn't been mentioned was this thing sonic used to have, can't remember what they called it, but it was basically just a big ass cup of their icecream with hueg liek xbox hueg chunks of cookie dough mixed in and whipped cream on top. It was delicious.

OK, kind of food related--got this from a friend of mine and was rolling on the floor when reading this.

A Texas Chili Contest -

**Note: Please take time to read this slowly. If you pay attention to the first two judges, the reaction of the third judge is even better** For those of you who have lived in Texas, you know how true this is. They actually have a Chili Cook-off about the time Halloween comes around. It takes up a major portion of the parking lot at the city park. The notes are from an inexperienced Chili taster named Frank, who was visiting from Canada.

Frank: "Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili cook-off. The original person called in sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking for directions to the Coors Light truck, when the call came in. I was assured by the other two judges (Native Texans) that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy and, besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted".

Here are the scorecards from the event:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chili # 1 Mike's Maniac Mobster Monster Chili

Judge # 1 -- A little too heavy on the tomato. Amusing kick.

Judge # 2 - Nice & smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.

Judge # 3 -- (Frank) Holy ****, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I hope that's the worst one. These Texans are crazy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chili # 2 Arthur's Afterburner Chili

Judge # 1 -- Smoky, with a hint of pork. Slight jalapeno tang.

Judge # 2 -- Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.

Judge # 3 -- Keep this out of the reach of children. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more beer when they saw the look on my face.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chili # 3 Fred's Famous Burn Down the Barn Chili

Judge # 1 -- Excellent firehouse chili. Great kick. Needs more beans.

Judge # 2 -- A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of peppers.

Judge # 3 -- Call the EPA. I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now. Get me more beer before I ignite. Barmaid pounded me on the back, now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. I'm getting ****-faced from all of the beer.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chili # 4 Bubba's Black Magic

Judge # 1 -- Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.

Judge # 2 -- Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili.

Judge # 3 -- I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it. Is it possible to burn out taste buds? Carrie, the barmaid, was standing behind me with fresh refills. That 300-lb. witch is starting to look HOT...just like this nuclear waste I'm eating! Is chili an aphrodisiac?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chili # 5 Linda's Legal Lip Remover

Judge # 1 -- Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding considerable kick. Very impressive.

Judge # 2 -- Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.

Judge # 3 -- My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted and four people behind me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Carrie saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from the pitcher. I wonder if I'm burning my lips off. It really p***es me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming. Screw those rednecks.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chili # 6 Vera's Very Vegetarian Variety

Judge # 1 -- Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spices and peppers.

Judge # 2 -- The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic. Superb.

Judge # 3 -- My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous, sulfuric flames. I **** myself when I farted and I'm worried it will eat through the chair. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except Carrie. She must be kinkier than I thought. Can't feel my lips anymore. I need to wipe my butt with a snow cone.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chili # 7 Susan's Screaming Sensation Chili

Judge # 1 -- A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.

Judge # 2 -- Ho hum, tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of chili peppers at the last moment. **I should take note that I am worried about Judge # 3. He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is cursing uncontrollably.

Judge # 3 -- You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn't feel a thing. I've lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with chili which slid unnoticed out of my mouth. My pants are full of lava like **** to match my shirt. At least during the autopsy, they'll know what killed me. I've decided to stop breathing, it's too painful. Screw it; I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I'll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chili # 8 Tommy's Toe-Nail Curling Chili

Judge # 1 -- The perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili. Not too bold but spicy enough to declare its existence.

Judge # 2 -- This final entry is a good, balance chili. Neither mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge # 3 farted, passed out, fell over and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself. Not sure if he's going to make it. Poor fella, wonder how he'd have reacted to really hot chili.

How long ago are we talking here? Never heard of this before.

Last time I chugged some Canfield's Diet Chocolate Fudge Soda was either late 80's or early 90's. I don't remember.

Let's put a twist on this thread. How about things you tried that were not so tasty?

I bring you exhibit #1. G.I. Joe cereal.

http://www.yojoe.com/archive/nottoys/images/cerealbox.jpg

There was a ritual when I was younger. I would accompany my mom to the grocery store and help her bag and carry the groceries home. The reward for my service was that I would get to pick out a box of cereal. I could have ANY cereal I wanted, but the rule was that I would have to FINISH the box of cereal before another was purchased. Well in my youth I was all about G.I. Joe, A real American Hero! I watched the cartoons faithfully. I saved my allowance and purchased the action figures whenever I had the chance to do so. I go to the store and there is Duke on a cereal box starring at me. The look on his cartoon face was that of "eat my cereal and support the troops!" I felt it was my god given duty to do just that. Besides I had a cereal box with ****ing Duke on it! How awesome is that? I just imagined how cool it would be having that box sitting on my breakfast table in the morning!

G.I. Joe cereal was actually nothing more than a generic corn cereal shaped like stars. But seriously, how bad can it be? About as bad as a donkey with diarrhea puking into a bowl of cream of wheat. The cereal tasted like a cross between dried corn, and aardvark vomit. And was "lightly" sweetened by anything but sugar... Now, the box did look good sitting on my breakfast table, however it took me all of five minutes to realize that the most exciting part of this awful cereal was the box itself. The box even tasted better. I still remember the way I felt when I first put a spoon of that crap into my mouth. You know those cartoons where a guy's head is replaced with a giant sucker? JUST LIKE THAT. That was the first time I ever felt like a victim of corporate marketing. I fell for Duke's dumb call to arms and got stuck with the ****tiest box of cereal I had ever consumed. Well I take that back. The ****tiest box of cereal I had ever consumed was Grape Nuts, which was the only cereal my dad's mother ever had in the house. G.I. Joe stars is only second to that. Of course I had to lie to my mother (because we had this weird rule about complaining about food in our house ) and tell her it was delicious. I spent a good couple of weeks literally choking that crap down, and feeding it to my dog when mom was out of the kitchen. I am sure my dog hated me for that. Then I would go to school hungry. Then of course a few weeks later, mom went to the grocery store without me, and decided to surprise me after school. "Look honey I got your favorite! G.I. Joe cereal!" Imagine my face blushing with a big fake **** eating grin, and sweat pouring down my big fat lying face... "Oh mom, how nice of you, you really shouldn't have..." I had to pretend that I was well disciplined soldier of G.I. Joe to force myself to endure it every morning. I learned a great deal about self discipline. Another couple of weeks I went to school hungry...and the dog got fatter. I made damn sure I went to the grocery store after that. The only way I could get out of that lie was to find another cereal. And of course my mom in the store would say "What about your favorite? G.I. Joe's?" I had to explain that since there were no cool toys in that box, that I wanted something different. She seemed content with that explanation. Lesson learned. Had to support my troops, but I refused to consume it's corporate cardboard cereal again...

Lemon coolers. In I had these as a kid and they were my favorite cookies. They were powdered lemon cookies that you put in the freezer and ate cold. In 1996, Sunshine Biscuits merged with Keebler Company, and Lemon Coolers were discontinued. I can't find a picture of the packaging, and that picture is actually probably someone's home cooked lemon coolers. The Thanksgiving before last, I tried using a recipe I found on the internet that claimed to be like Sunshine Lemon Coolers, but they weren't nearly as good.

In the past year or so, I discovered Mother's Iced Lemonade cookies.

http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/5512/mothersicedlemonadecook.jpg

They don't make up for the loss of the lemon coolers so long ago, but they're still quite delicious when put into the freezer and it's at least some consolation. You can imagine my disappointment when Mother's Cookies went bankrupt and closed in October of last year. Thankfully, the other day my dad was shopping and found some Mother's Iced Lemonade cookies. Apparently, Mother's cookies was aquired by Kellogg, and their cookies were brought back last month. I have some in the freezer right now. Edit: Nevermind, I ate them all.

And Zed, I have to agree with you on the X's and O's.

And Zed, I have to agree with you on the X's and O's.

For some reason, the Xs and Os just tasted better... I dobut there was really a difference between those and normal cheetos, but in my mind they taste better.

And I had cookies I used to love when I was little. I think they were just shortbread cookies with a Hershey kiss in the middle (or is it hug? whichever is pure milk chocolate). I've seen things like it since then, but never ones as good as the original ones I had.

Another is white fudge Oreos.. they only make them around Christmas, but I didn't see any last year.

And Jeff, they still make Dunkaroos. For Christmas 2007, my exgirlfriend and I discovered they still sell them at wholesale stores like BJs. We bought huge boxes of them... but she was diagnosed with Celiacs a few months later and thats the last time I had them. :p

Rhett, I tried one of those Volcano tacos a few months ago. Maybe I'm exemplifying the stereotype here (c.f. Jae's post), but I didn't think it was very hot. I've been on a road trip this month and it seems like there's very little in the way of spicy the further north you go. Even the "hot" sauce at Mexican restaurants isn't hot. :p

I like the HEB brand Jalapeno tortilla chips. They have a good flavor and are reasonably hot.

Kain
07-20-2009, 04:02 AM
I call BS on you, Dravis! I had a teacher who made his own hot-sauce. My uncle lives in Texas and is used to all that crap. My teacher's hot-sauce made my uncle's nose bleed.

Nothing in the way of spicey....puh.

Samuel Dravis
07-20-2009, 09:33 AM
Well, maybe I'm wrong that there's nothing. But I think it's just weird that very few people seem to like the spicy, given the lack of such things in places like grocery stores. About the hottest item I've seen in those is Tabasco sauce, but using that is like pretending that spicy is a seasoning and not a flavor! :D

Haven't seen these in the UK for a very long time - I used to love them as a kid.

Wow, UK doesn't have Lucky Charms? Too Irish or something? :p
(I'm gonna bet they don't have them in Ireland either.)

I used to love Sour Cream & Onion Chex Mix but I haven't seen it around in years. The best they have now is cheddar, and that gets old after awhile. Of course their best flavor had to be the one that was discontinued. :indif:

We used to have them (i've no idea about Ireland, but I doubt they have them) - I had them for breakfast everyday when they were around, but then they just disappeared about 15 years ago - although, i've heard that they're around in a select few shops (Wal-Mart, probably).

It might require a trip to one of those stores to recapture my childhood. :p

I am gonna change the direction of this thread once again. Because I can, and because I am a prick like that.

What is your favorite thing to order in a restaurant?

I will go first.

I have a thing for soup. I love soup all seasons of the year. The better the soup, the more I think highly of a restaurant. My first choice in soups is always Clam Chowder if it is on the menu. The Outback has a really kick ass Clam Chowder. If Clam Chowder is not available, I prefer cream soups such as Cream of Chicken, Cream of Potato, or Cream of Broccoli. I also love French Onion soup, and Broccoli Cheese soup. Also, that minestrone soup they got at Olive Garden is pretty bad ass. I even like plain old Tomato soup if you serve it with grilled cheese and ritz crackers! Soup rocks!

Also when it comes to appitizers I love mozerella sticks, Bocci, Fried Mushrooms, Fried Okra, Fried Calimari, Crab Rangoon, or anything that involves some sort of deep fried cheese or sea food.

One of my favorite dishes is getting harder to find these days, since the classic family style greek restaraunts are dissapearing off the face of the earth.

I love Veal Parmesean. Yeah, it's baby cow. Deep fried and smothered in mozerella cheese and merinara sauce. Usually it is served over a bed of thin pasta as well. It's not an unusal dish, but it IS getting harder to find in a restaruant these days.

This image is pretty close to what I am used too:

^^^ MMMM, spaghetti. :p

Traveling? Here are some restaurants to check out.
CA restaurants:
The Redwoods;
Samoa Cook House. Legendary Breakfast and excellent lunch.
Not a restaurant but: Katy's (world famous) Smoked Salmon--something like that. You'll never look at fish the same again.

Near that is a restaurant that serves up lumberjack (HUGE) sized pancakes. Breakfast till noon I think.

Skiing or snowboarding in or near tahoe;
Chris' Cafe--Calamari burger, also an excellent place to have breakfast. Do bring an appetite, though.

Burger Lounge: Cajun burger, Avocado heaven, Back'n'blue (similar to cajun but with some tangy bleu cheese instead of pepper jack), chili burger & chili fries. Again, bring your appetite.

Izzy's: Mushrooms and swiss burgers with an order of frings. Or chili dogs. Maybe you'd like pepperjack cheese, swiss and onions? Can do that too. Nice stop.

Sprouts: organic new age vegetarian based food. Restaurant, cafe and store. While I'm not a vegetarian, it has gotten me to look at it in a more accepting way. Great stuff.

Near Heavenly resort (where Bono got killed): Scusa's, italian food most people CANNOT eat in one sitting. Expands and feels like lead after--true to this type of food. Too good.

House of Jerky. AZ and southern central CA to my knowledge. Spend some $$$, leave happy. I can assure you.

Nevada bound:

Carson City: El Charro Avita, authentic mexican cuisine. Voted one of the best mexican food restaurants by, I think 10-20 different magazines, newspapers, periodicals, etc. Never once dissatisfied.

Reno: Joe's Diner--real 50's style.

Southern NV trucker stop near north Las Vegas (a ways out, but still near): There is a real nice dual building of a small casino and diner. Steak 'n' eggs w/ shredded hash browns. Worth every penny.

New Mexico:

I don't remember the name or where exactly, just that this mexican restaurant was 'out there' on a scenic 3 hr route in a new age shopping NM center. Off a main road drive (Route 66?) in the central to west side if I'm not mistaken. Excellent mexican food, just the right combination of spicy and tasty that keeps you coming back for more.

Anything with buffalo sauce on it. I had the Buffalo Chicken Crisper Bites from Chili's the other day. Delicious.

Hey, my track record so far is producing a male heir 100% of the time! So newborn baby uncle would be more correct. ;)

O_O Holy F***, I didn't realize it even came in that flavor. I'm pissed. I missed out on it. Helly F***in' yeah they have a tendency to discontinue the best flavors of stuff. Case in point: Chilli Cheese flavored Cheez-Its. Does *anyone* here remember those a few years ago? Ah man, I got a box of them every chance I got. Which was only 4 or 5 b/c they were only available 3 months.

Oh? Uh, well yes, actually. Thanks for the info. And you also posted mothers cookies below that? I have bad news: Mothers cookies went out of business in february. (Just in case nobody knew!)

So you'll never see any "Mother's" brand goodies again. I got one of the last bags of circus animal cookies, ever. Took one each also of chocolate, ginger snap, iced oatmeal, and those very same Lemon cookies too. Bummer they died out.

A sandwich filled with four cheeseburgers, a double cheesesteak, a chicken cheesesteak, gyro meat, grilled chicken, bacon, sausage, mozzarella sticks, chicken fingers, chicken nuggets, mac n’ cheese bites, fried mushrooms, jalapeño poppers, pizza bites, onion rings, hash browns, American cheese, mayo, and ketchup on two rolls.
