Some favorite foods you can't find anymore....

62 posts in this topic

One of mine is the Birdseye frozen peas with pearls onions in butter sauce. They no longer make them. Dang!! I loved those...another one, that I even called the company on, is Blue Bunny Raspberry Swirl ice cream. Quit making it a couple years ago. Blue Bunny lady said they never sold much of it, so they discontinued it. What the hey?! I Found that hard to believe; it was great. The breads they have for sandwiches now are poo, whatever happened to good ol' Sunbeam and Butter Top? Only white I can stand now, and it's really hard to find, is Sara Lee Old Fashioned. I'm talking plain old white bread for those quick PB&J sandwiches and pack-a-lunch for fishing sandwiches, not the whole grain unhulled tootsie-frootsie health nut stuff. Otherwise, I eat a lot of rye and oatmeal grain bread. Anyone else can't find any of their favorite foods anymore?

Almond Crescent cookies.  The have powdered sugar on them and you can find em at Christmas at Target.  They may be the best cookies out there.  I think it makes them good that they aren't available all the time.

Try the Iced Almonettes that are sugar free...They seem to be available everywhere...even Smurf's not favorite store. :P  I love 'em.

I think that's part of it. When you live in places like Bugtussle, selection gets limited partially by volume and partially because Scandinavians won't eat anything that isn't white and bland! :P I mean, we're lucky to get Chicken in a Biscuit crackers because the locals complain they're too spicy! :crazy: Now that I've attempted to run this thread off the tracks, I haven't seen those white fudge covered Oreos locally for a long time. And believe me it isn't like I haven't looked. Even in some of the larger stores in Owatonna & Albert's Leaf I haven't seen them.

Try a mexican grocery.. I looked on amazon and they have them for an outrageous price. The American ones were a "limited edition" but they did have these

I liked that spaghetti in a box too. And this stuff: Must've been too spicy. :D

Bone-in beef chuck roasts [ 7 bone], or bone in arm or my favorite bread and butter roasts.  they may be around but getting rare.  You almost have to buy a side of beef nowadays.  good luck.

I eat a lot of sandwichs at work so get tired of them.  Making smoked meat is great for them.  I used to like that jellied beef sandwich meat for a change.  Expensive though.  I haven't seen it for  years.  Seems I heard 10 years or more ago why they quit making it but can't remember why.

    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
    • We are on Lake Edward at WildWoods RV resort just north of Merrifield, MN. It is nice just driving up, unlocking it, playing for the weekend and locker her back up and leaving the frig on.  They let Atheists and Jesus freaks all in!
    •   My wife and I are starting to think about parking ours someplace. I'm tired of trying to get reservations and having to hook and unhook and all that goes with a weekend of camping. Plus I would like to have the toys available like 4-wheeler and boat.   We are looking at places up north. We know several people and like the Emily-Outing-Remer-Hill City area. I think you a further west, right? Brainerd area maybe?  
    •   5 years at one campground until they went private and wanted 60-70g's per lot with one-just-like-silly-me-o-en fees which were about what we were paying yearly already on top of that!  12 years where we are now with way bigger lots.
    •   Too bad the previous owner didn't know what they were doing. Never, ever use silicone on a rubber camper roof. I learned that the hard way many years ago.....   At least you have a good reason to have to go to the camper this weekend    How long have you been doing the seasonal thing?
    • Thanks for the reply, sounds about like what I expected and I really like the square tubing on the otters compared to clams round cheaper setup. Anyone seen any changes to the new otter lineup for this year? 
    • Last weekend spent some time re-sealing a small seam leak on a trim edge. Found out the owner before us had a leak on the same trim edge spot and left out a screw!! Also washed down the canopy and the ever reoccurring black streaks around the roof edge.   This weekend may go back and clean out and reseal a few other areas the passed own made a mess of sealing with sillycone! Using Butyl rubber this time as silicone can be pulled right off after a few years.
