Kinder Eggs in America

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

She by Sheree

Nutty_Flavor said...

Just get them sent from Europe. They're a dime a dozen here. eBay is calling.

trogdor said...

Bubble Jug bubble gum. Legal powdered crack. Some of that and 2 coffees and I pretty much pirouetted and spun through my days in high school.

Runswithscissors said...

A revlon lipstick, burnt red shade, beautiful with my skin tone. And Salon Selectives hair products, they smelled great and were reLly good

TalksTooMuch said...

A fashion clue in the 90s

FSP said...

Luckily they still make class rings.

rosie riveter said...

Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific shampoo

Bacon Ranch said...

Chocodiles

Still sold but you have to order online. Miss having them at the nearby quick stop

Caraface said...

The board game Crossfire. My mom sold it in a yard sale and I WANT IT BACK. Ebay has a bunch but they're expensive.

Lots of cosmetics. There's a great MUDD clay masque they stopped making, and zillions of people were looking for it on eBay. So annoying. I think the company went broke, because the product was certainly popular. Bvlgari Green Tea Shampoo and conditioner is another great product that seems to have disappeared. Maybe they figured out they could make more money selling jewelery.

MISCH said...

My mom had this Mary Quant eyeshadow in tubes from the 70's…..
Great stuff…she stock-piled but it's long gone

MontanaMarriott said...

McDonald's FRIED apple pie. I can only get them in Europe since the US no longer makes them

BK's cheesy pops although I did find them in Puerto Rico recently

Dingle Barry said...

Humming Bird flossers. Had I known that they'd stop production I would have stocked up on a life time supply.

Re: KinderEggs, Customs will confiscate them. It's harder to smuggle in a KinderEgg than it is drugs. So, we plan to find them in Canada, and eat the chocolate and save the toys before we cross back into the states. Hope it's not too late after Easter. (Although I have heard that Seattle has a black market of sorts)

Murphy said...

The 100 calorie chicken quesedillas they used to sell at Sams Club. Stopped selling them in 2008, so sad.

La Minette Grincheuse said...

Lime Starbursts (the original ones from the 70's, sold in the white package, not the "new" ones)

Unknown said...

Jello pudding pops

Kat has left the building said...

But @nutty, they're actually illegal here bc we Americans are such fat pigs and will put anything in our mouths, even the small plastic toys inside :( I'd ask someone to bring me one back next week but I'd be angry if it got confiscated. I've heard of people sneaking them in but I feel safer asking for a simple gazetta dello sport :)

AngelBear said...

Tangy Taffy

punningtons said...

Don't judge me. Burger King Mushroom Double Swiss

snookiemonster said...

Sizzlean

D Brown said...

Amosan oral wound cleanser was fantasic after dental procedures but Proctoer and Gamble discontinued it (because it wasn't important enough to brecome a billion dollar brand).

Polytar was another extremely effective product, for psoriasis and hair conditions, that disappeared without explaination. Had a full head of hair when I shampooed with it, hair been falling out ever since!

WritergirlinLa said...

They still make the fried apple pie in the US.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Jarts and DDT

Kat has left the building said...

Oh @rosie you reminded me! Does anyone remember Agree shampoo? It smelled absolutely heavenly and it was only sold at one drug store in my town.

Topper Madison said...

Marathon candy bars.

http://www.longisland70skid.com/marathon/

Dingle Barry said...

Quick! Somebody tell Beiber to bring back a private plane full of KinderEggs for his fans.

Ian's Girl said...

Pre-IFRA Caron perfumes, especially Tabac Blond, Narcisse Noir, and Or et Noir.

Also, Smoky Links, Herbal Essence Honeysuckle shampoo and Sinutab.

Kat has left the building said...

Wow thanks @dingle! Have you seen the pathetic USA approved version? It's just a solid toy with no moveable parts. The whole point was the fun of assembling it!

Dingle Barry said...

Kat, no I have not. It's just maddening. Have you seen the FB group "Free the Egg"? It's cute.

D. Brown, that's horrible. Is there no other medicinal shampoo that will work? I'm sure you've tried them all. So sorry.

__-__=__ said...

D Brown - coconut oil will do all that. Do oil pulling for oral health. Relieves psoriasis after a few days. Does wonders for hair. Just trying to help. Good luck!!

maus haus said...

Nyquil (the original formula that actually worked)

Kat has left the building said...

Lol @dingle thanks, I just "liked" it. A few weeks ago Piers Morgan tweeted that Americans can get guns but not the oh so life threatening KinderEggs haha. Have you brought back just the inside minus the chocolate? I'm wondering if I should ask my cousin to bring that? I'm sure he wouldn't mind disposing of the candy :)

Count Jerkula said...

Toaster Pizzas. I forget the brand name, great snacks when I was a kid.

Vera L- said...

it's 84 and muggy, Jello Pudding Pops.

Also, Vernor's Ice Cream from Sanders.

Desert.Fox said...

Clearly Canadian water. Was a childhood favorite and our "treat" on long road trips. Oh the simple days....

Apple Newtons

witwritergirl said...

Paregoric. Sure it's just a nice name for Opium but it'll knock out a stomach ache and you sleep like a baby. More importantly, Ma Brown pickles. They were awesome but can't find them since hurricane Katrina.

Riven said...

I'd cut a bitch for a Chico-stix.

Kelli said...

Drixoral allergy medicine. The best. They won't allow it in the US anymore.

Also, Wella had this hair product called Liquid hair. It was a yellow liquid. That stuff worked miracles. You'd spray it on and it would get rid of frizz, make your hair smooth and shiny.

Seachica said...

@kat -- for awhile I ordered them from a Canadian site, but I heard too many stories about them being confiscated by customs. I wish I could buy them, too :-(. For now I just buy some when I visit Vancouver or London. Stupid FDA laws.

Snapdragon said...

@rosie, you can get "Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific at Vermont Country Store" (why do I know this, whyyyy) but it will set you back a pretty penny (or 1,495 of them):

GYHST at VCS

Snapdragon said...

Oh, gosh, the GYHST is a recreation. Pretty expensive for a recreation ("without deer musk" WTF).

Speaking of shampoos of yesteryear, does anyone else remember Body of Tap, with beer in it?

Snapdragon said...

Body ON Tap. Gah.

Renoblondee said...

There was this perfect pink Jane nail polish.

Topper Madison said...

@Riven You CAN get Chick-o-sticks!! I just found them in a gas station somewhere in Pennsylvania last year, and have seen them around a lot since. Check a truck stop near you!

CitizenYoungstown said...

Planters Cheez Balls

Topper Madison said...

Here's the Chick-o-Stick distribution map: http://atkinsoncandy.com/find-atkinson-candy/

It changed my life.

bCdT said...

Minute Maid Soda. Great tasting Stuff.

Renoblondee said...

Totally Remember Body on Tap! I was really little and thought the commercials were so cool.

discoflux said...

Keebler used to do version of newtons that were like bakeshop cookies or something. They had apple cobbler ones that were out of this world!


I miss Aveda's hang straight straightening lotion. So magnificent. I still have about a quarter of a bottle. It's going to be a sad day the when I style my hair with it for the last time.

discoflux said...

Yes, Citizen!!

Planters CheezBalls! My mamaw always had cans of those when I was kid. Best cheez balls ever!

I also wish they still made surge soda. There was a surge icee for a while that was SO freaking good.

Dallas Alice said...

Carnation Breakfast Bars--peanut butter especially. Yum!

Dallas Alice said...

I would LOVE some of the original New York Seltzer, too.

Sarah Ward said...

Gator Gum

Sunshine said...

Halcyon. The greatest drug ever made.

Dallas Alice said...

Sunshine, Halcion is still prescribed in the US, but usually only if your doc is a billion years old.

Dingle Barry said...

OV splits! They stay icy cold all the way to the bottom.

Hey Canadians, do you still sell OV splits in CanadaLand?

Must add this on my List of Things To Do:

1. Free The Egg in my belly (must remember not to choke on toy as American's are stupid like that)

2. Ice cold OV splits in my belly (smuggle a shit metric ton into the states - Canadian jail has got to be better than Holiday Inn and I bet they serve OV splits at every meal)

Riven said...

@Topper : Marry me.

(I mean how many people out there will give me what I've craved for years while also saving me from potential jail time?) aka holy chocolate-less butterfinger bars you are the best!!

jaamillion said...

Bubble O' Bill ice cream

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Premiere magazine.

TalksTooMuch said...

I don't get the KinderEgg love. We've gone through a metric tonne with three wee kiddos, the toys always fall apart and get lost or they are lame. Not that awesome. The chocolate is all right, but I wouldn't mule for them, you.know?

On the other side, you can't get baby walkers here in Canada. The ones where they are on wheels and the baby's feet propel them along. Apparently we let too many kiddos fall down too many stairs? I don't know, that seems like more of a parenting issue than the basis for getting rid of an awesome tool to help wee ones walk, but who knows. They also get confiscated at Customs,that's what made me think of it

Dallas Alice said...

Chick O Sticks are pretty easy to find here in Texas. Beats a Butterfinger ANY day!

cece said...

Lemon-up shampoo with the plastic lemon on top. Marathon candy bars.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

New movie posters from the video store every week. Now there are no more video stores so I can't buy posters. :(

Snapdragon said...

Lemon-up! OMG!

I remember they had to put a warning on Body on Tap, not to drink it. STOOPID PEOPLE RUIN EVERYTHING.

Wen said...

Chocolate Creme PopTarts. I know they are have a 50 year anniversary advertising them, but good luck finding them.

Also, what happened to the original string liquorice????

Dingle Barry said...

But, TTM do your people still have Old Vienna splits?? I'll mule in a baby walker for you ;)

TalksTooMuch said...

Mine all walk, Dingle! Oh for the days when they stayed where you put them...

what's an Old Vienna split?? I will do my best!

Wen said...

I also miss the smell of the original Nexxus Humectress.

As for Body on Tap - You can make it yourself:

wahoowifey said...

Just thinking how awesome a Zima would be the other day. Drank them like crazy in college in the early 90's. {Hangs head in shame}

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Oh, God, where do you want to start...there's a whole bunch of cosmetics that I miss from mainly the '70s--Body on Tap, GYHST (supposedly the VCS repro isn't very good), Earth Born, Sunshine Harvest (there was an apricot version that smelled FABULOUS), and the original Herbal Essence shampoo (none of the successors have been anywhere near as good as the first one), and that's just shampoos we're talking about here!

Riven said...

I just spent $60 online buying Chick-O-Sticks and my dad is going to be very pleased this Fathers Day. Thank you everyone who informed me my delicious favorite childhood treat is still being made! It's a good thing my building at work is virtually empty because I squealed pretty loudly when I saw the links.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

That was my first thought. Used to get em at the ball fields, with my Barbie Corvette I had to get thru 4 older brothers games. (A little help from that guacame from a jug over taquitos)

surfer said...

@DingleBarry - I never heard of OV Splits - had to Google.

@TTM - I'm so with you on the KinderEggs - I just don't get it. Is it because there's a toy inside, cause the chocolate doesn't hold a candle to Godiva.

There was a John Frieda hair product called Beach Blonde Ocean Waves spray, which was terrific, but was discontinued. Someone is selling it on eBay for $75 - no thanks.

Has anyone ever had Cherry Wine? I *think* it's exclusive to N.C. Wish they sold it here.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Phen phen.
(Never had it but I'm getting tired of exercising so much)

Glitter said...

The original Jungle Gardenia perfume.

BreezyLife9 said...

Andy Capp Salsa Fries. I ate them everyday in middle school. Why are there still Cheddar Fries and Hot Fries but no Salsa Fries?

bflogurl said...

Outrageous shampoo that Cindy Crawford hocked in the 90s. Loved that smell!

skippy said...

D brown, ung cocois co works wonders. I used to sell it, always got great feedback.

chitownchica said...

Mr. Salty pretzel sticks. They were soooo thin (and salty)! And Aveda's elixir leave-in conditioner.

OneEyeCharlie said...

It's the wanting what you can't have, Surfer & TTM. They were fun things for stocking stuffers.

Are you talking actual cherry wine? In northern Michigan, there are a lot of vineyards on the Leelanau peninsula. Many cherry trees there as well. I believe they ship to Canada.

Laninna said...

But it's not the same hot, bubbly apple pie at Mc D's.

IceQueen said...

The Body Shop's Fuzzy Peach perfume oil. Vineyard Peach just doesn't cut it, although it was a good revival effort.

surfer said...

Yes, Charlie - that cherry wine. They may ship to Canada, but it would probably be a real headache dealing with Canadian Customs (duties, tariffs, etc.). Probably best to wait till my next trip. Thanks for the info.

discoflux said...

Surfer - There's also a soda called Cheerwine that's from the NC-ish region. You can order it online, me thinks.

Either way, you got "We Don't Have to Take Our Clothes Off" stuck in my head. Blaaarrrrgh!

"We can dance and party ALL NIGHT. And drink some cherry wine. Uh-huh..."

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

She Laq. By bennefit

SuzyQ said...

Sun Country wine coolers in the 2 liter bottle!

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Banana Susana Ice Cream sold at Thrifty Drug Store.

surfer said...

Disco - THAT'S what I was thinking of (thanks Charlie!). Looked them up and sent out an e-mail, but it came back as undeliverable. :( No phone # on their website. Will keep trying.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Yellow Zingers

Contraceptive sponges.

The *original* orange chicken ready prepared dinner from Fresh N Easy.

anon said...

Blue potato chips from Trader Joes - so good. I hate when I fall in love with their stuff and they discontinue it!

Kat has left the building said...

This is a really fun thread Enty!

Kat has left the building said...

@anon do you mean Terra brand chips? I think I used to get those at Traders but now I see them at my other grocery store. They were GOOD!

Penelope said...

The original Herbal Essence shampoo and Soft Lilac deodorant by (Mennan?)

PghGirl said...

V's cinnamon rolls (a little diner in Independence, MO that no longer exists). We would go out of town and leave super early to get one before they sold out.

DommyMommy said...

I went to the Bahamas to stockpile Bellodgia.

DommyMommy said...

It's still available in the States, but you'll have to sign for it - it's pure bliss.

RowdyRodimus said...

@Citizen My Dad worked at Planters for 20 years. Every Thursday and Friday they had a "store" open for the employees to buy stuff at just cost. I loved getting the list on Monday from him and filling out what I wanted (I always got the huge 2 foot long Sugar Daddy on a stick- 50 cents lol) Not a week went by we didn't get Cheez balls and Cheez Curls, there was a limit of 4 cans each but the 8 cans in total cost less than $2 total. I also used to let teachers order and they paid 2X the price since it was still cheap for them and I made a bit of spending money.

On topic: I wish they still made Sega Dreamcasts, probably the best video game system ever. If they had put the DVD Drive in it like they originally wanted to, the PS2 wouldn't have sold like it did. Plus, there is not a better console for playing emulators. You can pretty much play any game from any system pre Xbox and PS2 with a Dreamcast and a CD burner.

DommyMommy said...

Cleopatra Lipstick Sealer. Twelve hours of eating and drinking and never a lip print on a glass, never a need to touch up. Perfection!

Chicky said...

I LOVED agree - your hair smelled like it forever! That and Tickle deodorant :)

Edy O. Syncratic said...

Brach's Neopolitan candies. The pink, white, and brown ones that would pull out your dental work if you weren't careful.

Chicky said...

Surfer - other companies make one, but I found a recipe to make my own - the only thing it lacks is the great smell :)

Count Jerkula said...

Gap jeans that arent light weight shit.

Levis Silver Tab Jeans that arent scrawny dude nut hugs

New, good rock n roll music

Ephedrine pills



An Entenmans cake that isnt 1/2 the size a fucking Entenmans cake is supposed to be.

LT said...

Quualudes

Chicky said...

I ordered some MUDD off amazon from the UK but it wasn't quite the same...I miss 10-0-6 too!

obitguy said...

Quualudes. I so miss the 60s and 70s.

biteme said...

Le Jardin perfume - loved it and always got great comments.

Unilever made Sunsilk shampoo that I absolutely love. Not available in USA anymore for some reason.

Nabisco used to make Bacon flavored crackers.

OPI nail polish in Hip Hop Harlem. This color is no longer available.

When I was growing up the local milk company was Berkeley Farms. They made this fantastic ice cream I think was called Milk Chocolate chip. It was my favorite and nothing like it around.

Where I live now we have a candy shop that specializes in candy you cannot find elsewhere. I can almost bet, if it is still made they could find it for you. This place survived the economic downturn in our town.

surfer said...

Chicky - are you talking about the John Frieda product?

I did a little digging, and discovered that Cheer Wine is sold @ Publix. In Florida. The search continues, lol.

Melpomene25 said...

Crimson Kiss body lotion from Victoria's Secret.

Chicky said...

Yes! Duh, sorry :)

Sass71 said...

Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara in Deep Auburn.

And Crystal Pepsi

Riven said...

@biteme did you grow up in northern cal? I lived in Berkeley and as of 2 years ago when I moved to LA most stores in Bezerk still sold Berkeley Farms dairy products. I lived in a few coops with strong food politics, which is why I REMEMEVR.

Ok seriously I don't know why my iPhone autocorrects "remember" to that abomination.

Chicky said...

My email is in my profile - stooopid blogger won't let me paste it here - drop me a note and I'll email you the recipe

Ella Bee said...

Raspberry Bubblicious Gum, New York Seltzer (cream soda was my fave), and Crystal Vanilla Ice Cream. YUM!!

Runswithscissors said...

Mexico has them, I get them and they don't get confiscated. I have people ship them from the border.

cornflowerbluezz said...

@surfer You mean Cheerwine soda! I thought I was the only one who drank it. It's made in Salisbury, NC but you can have it shipped, I think.

I discovered it in college & then afterwards, I'd go back to NC each year & buy a case & slowly dole it out.

Just moved to a place where they sell it! Woo-hooo!!!! Local deli delivers it when we order from them. Still tastes Dee-lish!

30 years later, I'm back in Cheerwine heaven! :-D

WareCat said...

Tickets to Pantera.

Runswithscissors said...

OMG! It's discontinued?!?! Hang straight?! I have a quarter bottle too!!! What am I gonna do?!

Years ago, aveda had a wonderful sunblock with zinc in it. It was so good. Also their facial powder. But, they decided not to do makeup anymore. Sadly.

urban chaos said...

Surfer!! There's a winery in niagara on the kale that sells fruit based wines and I'd swear cherry is one- they are sunnybrook farm. Fairly small so you may have to call and inquire.

Hth!

urban chaos said...

Lake* not kale.. Obviously

AKM said...

Orbitz soda.

Renoblondee said...

@Dallas Alice I saw New York Seltzer at Big Lots!

cornflowerbluezz said...

@Robin As I was scrolling thru thinking about hair products, I thought of the originial Herbal Essence shampoo. It was the first hair product my mom let me buy just myself.

That stuff smelled Soooo good. And no, none of their product smell anything like the originial.

Do you remember Farah Fawcett as the Wella Balsam shampoo girl? "And so on. And so on. And so on."

:-)

Runswithscissors said...

You can find sunsilk in Mexico. You can get it from amazon.

surfer said...

cornflowerbluezz said...

@surfer You mean Cheerwine soda! I thought I was the only one who drank it. It's made in Salisbury, NC but you can have it shipped, I think.

Bluezz - that's it! I sent them an e-mail, but it was returned as undeliverable, so there's no chance in hell I'm giving them my credit card # (but thanks). Enjoy it - you lucky girl!

UrbanChaos - thanks for the tip - I'm going to check it out, pronto!

NaughtyNurse said...

High quality undies from Victoria's Secret. They only sell flimsy crap now.

cornflowerbluezz said...

@surfer I just called their # & it still works! They answer as "Piedmont Cheerwine". Here you go:

Hope it helps! :-)

McDonald's Pizza

surfer said...

Bluezz - you are the best! Thanks - off to call now.

big hugs!

Dallas Alice said...

@Reno, I've tried it and sadly it's not the same :-(. I SO wish it was.

I'm a soapmaker and have an Herbal Essence fragrance dupe that takes me right back to the 80's :-)

Dallas Alice said...

^5 @NaughtyNurse

cornflowerbluezz said...

I wish they still made Fabrege Woodhue perfume & Cornsilk face powder. My mom didn't wear a lot of makeup or perfumes, but those two fragrances are forever ingrained in my memory of her. :-)

Dallas Alice said...

Wow--NEVER knew McDonald's had pizza. For some reason, that made me think about the Bell Beefer from Taco Bell. That sounds really good right about now...

Dallas Alice said...

OMG, @cornflower--I used cornsilk powder for YEARS

biteme said...

Yes, grew up in Marin County! Loved Berkley Farms. Live in Sonoma and I can get Berkley Farms milk but they do not make that flavor of ice cream anymore.

Riven said...

@biteme did you grow up in northern cal? I lived in Berkeley and as of 2 years ago when I moved to LA most stores in Bezerk still sold Berkeley Farms dairy products. I lived in a few coops with strong food politics, which is why I REMEMEVR.

Thank you Runswithscissors, I will check Amazon.

A former co-worker loved Max Factor mascara also. Says it is available in Canada.

biteme said...

I agree NaughtyNurse

I loved VS underwear. Was great value and quality. I would buy it again even if it was more expensive.

cornflowerbluezz said...

@surfer So glad I could help. Fingers crossed for ya! Told the woman I was calling for a friend. LOL

Hugs backatcha! <3

Bluess is out! :-)

Carl's Jr crinkle fries. I stopped going when they changed to the straight edge style ones

Togo's. The nearest one to me is in Beaverton, OR. I drive out of my way for Togo's whenever I visit Portland.

Chick fil a. Hate tastes so damned good. Fortunately they are coming to Bellevue (a Seattle suburb) soon.

I'm in Canada, west coast. I loved the pizza. It was early 90s.

The Effervescent Diva said...

Monica's Magic Salad Dressing - made by a woman in Houston - a nonfat, near zero calorie salad dressing that was fabulous. The woman dies and her family closed up her business. That stuff was seriously good.

Sherry said...

I was about to tell Surfer about Cheerwine but apparently others know about it. Warning: Not as good as you remember it. I drank some once when I went back home and it was so dreadfully sweet I couldn't finish the can.

I miss quaaludes.

They still make Planter's Cheez Balls don't they? OMG!!! I wondered why all we get are knock off brands..Someone still makes them it's just not Planters.

I also see they discontinued Schnapple Mint Tea.Loved that. I suspect my favorite gum, Trident in Arctic is being phased out too because I can never find that.

Well I see I'm not the only one who misses Rorer!

I realize how pathetic I sound, yes.

BeckyMae said...

Mostly I want things I can't get in Australia that exist elsewhere.....

Trader Joes Mini Peanut Butter Cups (crap all over that Reese's grainy shit)
Jalapeño and Cheddar Cheetos (still have a third if a bag that I bought in SIN in February that are stale as fuck, but I'll still eat 'em!)
Those Marks and Spencer Percy Pigs sweets....I think there's crack in them....ten at a time is never enough!
Galaxy Caramel Chocolate (can get here but it's expensive...)

Luckily I'll be in the UK in a few weeks to satisfy the last two cravings!!

Renoblondee said...

@Dallas It's not? It looked just like it. That's too bad.

I don't drink a lot of soda anymore, but I think about Diet Mt. Dew Code Red every now and again. I wish they hadn't stopped selling it.

surfer said...

I love the way we're able to help each other out.

:) Sherry! Cherrywine was obviously quite popular. I'm thinking, if I can't get my hands on it, I'll try cherry syrup and Club Soda. It won't be the same, but...in the past, I've added Grenadine to Club Soda. Cherry looking, but not tasting. Ohs well.

I see Cheez Balls everywhere, but but not sure if they're Planters. I will definitely check it out.

Seven of Eleven said...

Altoids gum. :(

One thing that, as BeckyMae said, exists elsewhere in the world but is a pain to get here is HP Sauce. I love HP Sauce! Our local grocery carries it, but it's the kind made in the U.S. You can get it off of Amazon, but it's hit or miss.

Bizzy B said...

Ok that's it. First time poster. Hi everybody! Wiglet got me with the "She by Shere". Fanf@&kingtastic.

Illinois Fan said...

What about the Long and Silky hair conditioner to go along with the original Herbal Essence shampoo? That was my favorite combo in high school.

Spiffypaws said...

@Little Miss smoke & mirrors-you can still buy contraceptive sponges-I bought them recently at Drugstore.com and have seen them at stores in Florida

I miss Gap tshirts when they were made to last.

Sophie Fox said...

Longtime lurker!

John Freida Beach Blonde - the entire line was amazing and I have spent a small fortune trying to find a wave spray that I like as well and have had no luck. The scent was just to dieeeee for.

Dallas Alice said...

@Reno--they apparently use different sweeteners now. Icky aftertaste :-/

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Bizzy B! Another fan of the couturiere! Though I think it's just you and I on this one :)

Renoblondee said...

OMG @Sophie! I LOVED the wave spray too! It did smell amazing!

@Dallas Gotcha. Ick.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Hey Sophie! There's a lifestyle blogger who is trying to crack the formula. In the meantime, there's a petition to bring it back :)

surfer said...

Sophie/Reno: Chicky mentioned upthread that she's trying to crack that nut (minus the scent). Why not send her an e-mail (on her profile), asking if she'll share it.

Kat - no, not the Terra brand blue potato chips (although I would take those either, but I can't find them in regular grocery stores anymore either) - Trader Joes had their own Blue chips.

Also, I miss Wise Garlic and Onion potato chips - Wise aren't carried on the West Coast. I occasionally find them at Big Lots but not as often as I'd like!

@surfer There's a website, cheerwinefinder.com (still don't know how to make a clicky) that may help. I can't stand the stuff myself, and it stains like a mofo.

Actually, I miss the V-neck, kind-of-chunky knit sweaters they had in all colors at The Limited in the 80's. It was my white sweater that got stained with an unholy mix of vodka and Cheerwine....

Hi Sophie! I sent surfer the recipe for the beach spray I use, but you're right it doesn't smell quite as divine as the John frieda - my email is in my profile - send me a note and I'll send you the recipe - blogger wont let me paste for some reason! :)

Walmart brand Chocolate Mint ice cream. It was too die for. They have changed the recipe. Not the same.

Chocolite, a Nestle chocolate candy bar from the 70s, I used to have it when I was a kid. It was only 25 cents! Wow, that made me sound old :)

The lust for the beach hair line from John Freida is making me laugh because I had to write a whole promo article for it when it debuted back when I was a go-getter reporter. The event took place on the Wildwood Boardwalk. If you're from Jersey you will understand the cheesiness of it all. But the products did seem great.

OK. Well, I miss my Gourmet Magazine, damn it. I know it's high-falutin and hoity-toity, but I loved that shit. If you can have your Trader Joe's - which is douchebag central in my book - I can have my Gourmet.

I also have a hankering for Berry Berry Kix and can never find them anywhere.

Uncle Ben's made a great rice pilaf when I first got married. Now, nowhere to be found.

And, I truly mourn the loss of many fab restaurants that have ceased and desisted in Philadelphia: Brasserie Perrier and Deux Cheminees, RIP.

@Anon, too bad you don't know of anyone in the South where Wise are predominantly sold and sees Garlic and Onion Wise every time they go to the store. Oh, wait, you do lol

Sandyjade V said...

Oh! and Wendy's used to sell pita's. So good.

They're around, I think at Dollar Tree or Cracker Barrel or both!

CK76 said...

Berry Berry Kix, swear I saw them at Target Halloween.

So glad to be asked this! It made me search the only fragrance I care to wear and just found it's available online! I used to buy my gorgeous cheapie fragrance Alia at Sears Canada and they told me it was discontinued and I believed it. Made in Italy and available for purchase and still pretty cheap! Thrilled!

Jeez, too many things to count, or remember! The original Vidal Sassoon shampoo & the conditioning rinse, the ones in the brown bottles, from the '80's, best stuff ever. Ye Olde Pizza Joynt pizza, in Hayward/San Lorenzo, CA. Apparently it burned down, and they didn't re-build (I don't live there anymore, but it's truly tragic). Reds Tamales! Any food from El Taco, in San Leandro, CA (they closed, again, I don't live there but it'd be worth the drive).The California Coolers, wine coolers that Bartles and Jaymes bought the company out for in the late '80's, and RUINED. Taco Bell's "Bell Burgers", Jack in the Box's burritos (that were actually chimichangas), and McDonald's Cherry pies (sometimes you can find them, very randomly. They're WAY better than apple, IMHO). And, Urban Decay's white powder eyeshadow that has the glitter in it, can't remember the name, but it's the best for concerts and other trashy nights out! (Sometimes, a girl wants her eyes to sparkle, especially if they're dark brown eyes!) :D

....and "Frankincense and Myrhh" cologne from Jovan! It was out in the mid-late '70's, and was the best smelling perfume EVER!!! Oh, and shoes with wooden heels, instead of rubber that looks like wood.
