    Quoted from EdisonArcade:

    Farrell's!!
    Ahhh, the Zoo... I enjoyed many in my youth at birthday parties, etc...

    Sacramento had a Farrell's for many years. A new one opened about 6 years ago. Last year it closed and now it's a spaghetti factory.
    We had several birthday parties for our boys there. I really miss it.

    Quoted from onemoresean:

    Favorite place in the 70's.
    Rock candy, huge jaw breakers, and the zoo!

    I bought one of the little clip on ties off a waiter one time for 50 cents. Still have it!

    So happy they are coming back, but I don't like the shape change. Oh well, I'm sure they will be awesome.

    After downing a few Tide Pods, I like a little chewing gum. BTW pods are so last month, kids like to SNORT the chewing gum now....smh

    Quoted from ronlisa:

    Trying to live a healthier lifestyle now that I'm getting older, but I ate a bunch of these things back in the day.

    I almost got hit by a car on Little River Turnpike eating one of these Zero bars for the first time as a kid, the driver saw me throw it down in disgust and then we both nodded at each other in approval. lol True story

    Quoted from Grayman_EM:

    Loved these as a kid when we moved back to Indiana. Pizza Spins

    I enter a thread I believe is devoid of JJP controversy, and yet I discover their inspiration...

    What did you see a post from the lollipop guild or an umpa-lumpa??? lol

    #110 1 year ago

    Mmm. icecubes somehow I forgot all about those. I have a mission now.

    #111 1 year ago

    Not sure how junk foody it is but lately I've grown fond of the Salt and Pepper Pistachios.

    pasted_image (resized).png

    If I don't ration myself I can shell thru an entire bag in one sitting (bag says 3.5 servings per container, but who is counting?)

    I wish for the life of me I could remember what this candy’s name was.... it was available in the mid 70s to probably the early 80s, it came in a roll ina size similar to lifesavers, the candy was pastel colored coins that were tart and fizzy in your mouth. I would save my allowance and buy the whole box at Quik Trip.

    These? I think they made a larger size roll too.

    That chewing gum tastes nasty.....like rubber.

    Quoted from o-din:

    Avocado toast with honey.

    What can I say O-Din, you are an inspiration.

    IMG_7480 (resized).JPG

    Does not look as nice as yours, but tasty just the same. The honey and eggs are from here on the farm. . . have not tried growing our own avocados or baking our own bread yet.

    Y'all got it wrong so far...

    1. OP meant to ask: What's the the best *pinball* candy? -- like for roaming at a show.

    Requirements:

    1. can't spill in your pocket (bags of loose candy are out)
    2. can't get on your hands (chocolate is mostly out)

    Conclusion:

    Spree from Willy Wonka

    I totally forgot about Wacky Wafers - loved those as a kid! I did recently find these again and bought some.

    They used to be $0.10 as a kid, my wife told me they now cost us $2.69 :O

    I get the 2 1/2 pound bag when they go on sale at Costco. I also load up on the Blue Diamond Almonds when they go on sale. Instant f'ing weight gain for me. I love em'.

    Crazy as it sounds, grilled corn. Add some tajin, butter, salt, and pepper. It's awesome and the best laxative I could possibly imagine.

    #125 1 year ago

    Loved the Choco'lite candy bar when I was a kid also the bubble gum cigarettes. (not the chalk stick ones)

    Every now and again they mix up a batch of blueberry but just cinnamon/sugar today. Already half gone!

    Looks like "Cheez Balls" are making a comeback:

    https://fox8.com/2018/06/27/after-12-years-planters-cheez-balls-and-cheez-curls-are-coming-back/

    I remember eating these out of the can as a kid. Being honest, I never noticed they were gone but that is probably because of all the aftermarket cheese balls out there. That and I stopped eating cheese in a spray or ball form a long time ago. . .
