    Noodle Roni Almondine?

    A delicious dry box mix just add water milk and butter, had a dry mix to add and toasted slivered almonds.

    It was delicious!! Sadly, it was discontinued in the early 80's, but it is still
    possible to re-create the dish!!

    And how about the ORIGINAL Chunky Chicken Soup?? With the flat noodles,
    mushrooms, bits of tomato, bits of celery in a thick and rich chicken flavored
    broth??

    If you want the directions on making the Noodles Almondine, just post here.

    All the Chunky Chicken Soups are the same as everything else these days...
    Progresso, and all the other brands are the same!!

    BRING BACK THE ORIGINALS!!!

    I say!

    I don't remember that one but I do wish there was still such a thing as JELL-O 123

    Jello also had a thing called "Whip and Chill" which is still available in some places.

    I'll look for it, but the only thing I ever liked that came in a box besides condoms was JELL-O 123; for all I know it was CARCINOGENIC; after all it was from KRAFT but it was really yummy!

    I agree, Nudeyorker!

    I loved that stuff.

    The new Jell-O Mousse cups are chocolate, coffee, and other versions of the consistency called "2" in "Jell-O 123).

    Does anyone remember the Sarah Lee fudge brownies available in the frozen food section in the 70's? You had to be careful pulling the paper liner back so you would not ruin the fudge topping. I think I went through about 1500 containers of those when I was in law school.
    They disappeared off the face of the earth around 1982.

    Don't remember any of that stuff 'cause I never ate it. I do remember Fudgesicles (are they still around?), when CrackerJacks had plenty of peanuts (not just a couple), the Burger King's Whaler (it actually tasted like a fish sandwich), and K&B (a local iconic drugstore that's only a memory) chocolate malts, when malts really had malt in them.

    There were also other memorable (local) classics: McKenzie's glazed donuts, or those midnight trips down Esplanade to Picou's Bakery for their hot glazed donuts.

    Whip 'n Chill.
    Myyyyy gawd.
    I must have made it hundreds of times.
    I would make it as soon as I got home from school and pop it into the freezer.
    Must have been horrible stuff, but to my pubescent palate, it was great.

    Kraft made butterscotch and chocolate puddings.
    A bit tricky ... they could easily burn.
    The trick was to lower the heat a bit as they approached the boiling point and look for the appearance of the first bubbles.
    Then you poured right away into the bowls.

    I actually thought that these desserts were training wheels for the Kitchen Master I would become.
    Never happened, though.
    (I made up for it by learning to sing for my supper.)

    What are Space Food Sticks like? I mean, what's the texture? And do they taste like their flavor names? Because I LOVE that kind of thing.

    Also, my sister came home from Pomona College with Abba Zabba vanilla taffy. Does anyone in CAlifornia know if this delectable dental-work destroyer still exists? And what about the chocolatey kind? Mmmmmmm... Taffy :sigh:

    Not food I guess...a drink. Fizzies I think they were called. A tablet you put in water and it fizzes into like a sparkiling koolaid type drink

    Does anybody remember Figurines?
    They tasted like flavored styrofoam.

    I don't remember those foods, but I wasn't in the US for most of those years, plus my parents have always been way into health food. I do remember astronaut food, though! I still love it! Space ice cream is the best!

    Jello made a Key Lime pudding pie filling. All you can find now is the Lemon.

    I never actually ate one, but I still have the theme song embedded indelibly in my brain :sad: In the 70s I was skinny.

    I was a fan of Space Food Sticks though.

    I want my MAYPO!
