GreekGeek September 18, 2014 Share September 18, 2014 This may overlap somewhat with the Childhood Favorites thread, but I'll chance it. What foods that aren't made anymore do you miss most? A lot of mine are frozen dinners, or "TV dinners," as they were called in the old days. Swanson's fried chicken and Salisbury steak were good. They also made a sort of Chinese dinner for awhile, where the "main dish" was sweet and sour chicken. Howard Johnson's had frozen meals for awhile, most notably shrimp croquettes with Newburg sauce and chicken croquettes with chicken gravy. I'd eat the chicken croquettes with the sauce but not the shrimp. I was sad when Stouffer's stopped making their wonderful Noodles Romanoff. Birdseye made some nice international frozen vegetables with cubes of sauce. There were Japanese-style mixed vegetables and Bavarian-style green beans and Spaetzele. Chef Boy-ar-dee still has pizza kits, but has anyone bought their whole ready-made frozen pizzas lately? I haven't seen any in ages. I miss Baskin Robbins English Toffee. A couple of years ago they brought out a limited edition ice cream with a ribbon of what seemed like liquid Red Hots. It was terrific and I wish they'd bring it back. Jell-o Pudding Pops. 'Nuff said. 1 4 Link to comment
