Mister Softee's blue-and-white soft ice cream trucks are still all over the place in Manhattan...

Does anyone remember:Mr.Softee..the ice cream vendor..who sold soft serve treats from a truck and the icon on the side of the truck was a living ice cream cone man?

To KidsTVKid - Remember Sealtest very well, although I don't remember the mascot.  The company used to have a plant at Main and Kensington (next to the NYS Thruway) in Williamsville, NY.

Yes, I recall eating at a Wetson's somewhere on Long Island.  There was also a hamburger stand that I liked named "Burger 'n' Shake" in New Hyde Park; don't know if it was part of a chain.

Here's one for the local New Yorkers probably.
My dad and I used to go to the Candy store and pick up these small chocolate rings that were filled with a raspberry jelly.  5 cents a piece in the late '60s.  I can't recall their name and they used to come in a large layered box that the store owner would dole them out from. Any ideas gang?
Posted by Duff at 7:31 pm (PDT) on Wed June 26, 2013   
Skybar? That's a new one on me, MzSatnin. But I found a photo and have added it to the gallery.
Posted by MzSatnin at 6:29 pm (PDT) on Wed June 26, 2013   
anyone remember Skybars?  A candy bar with 4 sections, each a different flavor, vanilla, chocolate, peanut buter and caramel.  I loved these things!  
Posted by Eubean at 11:52 am (PDT) on Tue April 17, 2012   
White Castles were 5¢ when I started buying them. When they went up to 7¢ in the mid-60s, everyone screamed murder. I would steal money from my mother's purse and tear across Bruckner Blvd. in the Bronx and get a sack of these. I'd sit along the highway and fall into a coma as I ate these. Somehow, I could fit at least ten of them in my stomach but I'd be miserable all day from it. And I was a tiny, skinny thing then.

Instant Breakfast by Carnation...For us busy kids running late for school in the late 60s.

White Castle hamburgers.... a bag of 12 = $1. (late 50's)

They have them frozen on the west coast, but nothing would beat the store in Nungessers, NJ..
Posted by Bonnie at 11:00 pm (PDT) on Tue August 2, 2011   
Does anyone remember a fruity taffy-like candy from the 60s called a Big Boogie? I saw them for sale in the Missouri area when I was on vacation with my family around 1965 but couldn't eat them because I was wearing braces. Later when I told people back home (in PA) about them, they told me I was crazy--that nobody would give a candy that name.
Posted by Duff at 6:48 pm (PDT) on Thu May 19, 2011   
Snaps? Sounds sorta like Good & Plenty...
Posted by Gunny at 2:39 pm (PDT) on Thu May 19, 2011   
In the 'retro' candy department-does anyone remember "SNAPS" They were short pieces of licorice that had a candy coating (like a shell). Seems I remember them being in an all red box with white lettering and I definetly remember the price (it was printed on the box) - 2 cents

I remember those Toaster Pizzas. I really didn't like them at all, but always ate them.
They were way too hot, yet the cheese never melted.
I bet they would sell big today!
Posted by Duff at 2:57 am (PDT) on Tue April 19, 2011   
I recall the BuItoni brand name, but that's all. Then there was Ronzoni, which still exists, I believe. Remember their ad slogan? I don't speak Italian, but I think it was something like, "Ronzoni è sono buoni -- Ronzoni is so good!"
Posted by NJMomma at 8:57 pm (PDT) on Mon April 18, 2011   
Does anyone remember Butoni Toasted Pizza's. It was a shell (almost pita enlosed circle with sauce and cheese), you put in toaster and warmed it up. Usually to hot to hold with your hand and eat like a sandwich so you would wrap a napkin around it and it... Mostly hot and cold spots within. One bite cold, the next burned your tongue. We loved them anyway!
Posted by Duff at 6:10 pm (PDT) on Thu March 31, 2011   
I guess you mean Pillsbury's Space Food Sticks. I don't remember them, but see plenty of references on the web. I'll add them here shortly.

Derek - I've been unable, so far, to locate any information about some of the products you've mentioned. Were they fairly local to your area? If you have any material you could send me, or links you know about where info and photos can be found, please let me know.

Well, you know, where else would they be? After we got tired of them, we chewed on them. They tasted good, but we didn't actually eat them. Thanks for adding them, Duff.
