    Campbell's Pepper Pot Soup. It was such a part of my childhood, and I miss it so much...I'd glom the whole can.

    My Sony Sport cd player disappeared this summer. It was perfect. Anything you needed to do could be done with one finger. There was no need to even look at it. I saw a couple new ones floating around e-Bay for $$$. I haven't decided how much I loved it...

    Strong iodine - I used to use it on my horse with pads - a squirt once a week or two kept her feet great.

    Ditto the meth lab thing, our secret family liniment recipe is almost impossible to make now, since everything is either a controlled substance or a drug lab staple.

    I remember this too. Were you from New England? Super popular there!

    Pream instant creamer. I probably don't want to know what is in it. It tasted GREAT even out of the jar and if you threw it on the fire it made fireworks!

    I remember the first time I found that out. The Galloping Gourmet was making it on TV, and he held up the tripe and started talking about cow's stomach. Talk about SHOCK!

    This is more of a general post...but for those of you who love items that still exist and are just hard to come by, and your local retail store says no to ordering you just one, ask them if they'd be willing to order you an entire case of it. Obviously this is dependent on your willingness to buy a whole case, but a lot of times, this will knock down their barrier to being willing to order you something--and sometimes they'll even give you a discount.

    I do that occasionally with items that I use a lot but that rarely go on sale. For example, baking staples like sugar rarely go on sale other than from late October through Christmas. But if you can a lot of jams and jellies all spring and summer, it might be worthwhile to get a case discount on sugar. Basically anything you're willing to buy in multiples of 6 to 12, don't be afraid to ask the customer service desk if there's a "case price" for it.

    The old Ariat boot bags, with a separate compartment for each boot and zippers up the side. After my last pair of boots (and the boot bag) got stolen, I got the new Ariat boot bag, which has a single compartment with a divider in the middle. It has a flap that goes down the front of the boot bag with a zipper on each side. The flap just gets in the way, and the zippers are hard to zip around the ankle area of the boots where it bends. Hate it.

    Oh I just remembered another one! Floral gums! Mmm tasted like soap but I lobed them! I remember a candy shop telling me the factory had burned down and wasn't planning on rebuilding, but someone does make a knock off kind, which of course isn't nearly as good.

    And cherry lips. Hard to come by, and are in specialty stores as well, which rarely carry them. So I will order a fifty(yes fifty) pound box of them for $130 dollars! That is how nostalgic I am about them lol! Thank god they last me a looong time!

    Monks Bread
    Revlon's Moondrops Moisturizing Cream
    Most of the original Archway Cookies
    Krispy Kreme! (the expansion North evidently failed...so have to head South for them - picked some up on the way back from my nephew's wedding in VA this summer, drove home, and my Irish Wolfhound finished them off before the morning )

    OK, I miss another thing that Ariat used to make....The "oldest" Santa Cruz and Del Mar clogs...They have the solid tan inner foot beds, the newer ones made have a black lining around the inside-don't feel the same. And the new styles, probably made in the last 4 to 5 years, are made of crappy quality leather.

    I do find them on ebay-I look at least twice a week. I have 5 pairs right now, but always looking for more!

    Oil of Olay original lotion and Constant Comment Tea, the former has been new and improved, doesn't keep my skin from drying anymore so don't purchase it anymore and the latter simply seems to be mia.

    I love Constant Comment! It's one of those "hard to find in the grocery stores, super-easy to find by the case" things. I work in an academic office that orders it from OfficeMax, but you can get it on Amazon too:

    Really?? I always see it at my supermarket as I drink about 6 cups a day of it, I stock up. Let me know if you want me to pick some up and ship. There was a sale on it 2 weeks ago and I restocked.
    I am on my phone 90% of the time. Please ignore typos, misplaced lower case letters, and the random word butchered by autocowreck.

    Lawn Darts. They were great for cleaning the gene pool.
