    Why was a Jamaican character used to promote Mexican cuisine in that ad?

    Tower Records and Borders also Walden and renting videos at block buster and hollywood video, I used to work for Hollywood video for 3 years in my teens and early 20s. Fun times but also makes me sad thinking about it since everyone I knew are gone, I dont even have a good memory I forgot half of their names, its been so long.

    Those pizzerias were awesome, I recall most bags having a ton of seasoning on each chip.

    I likely ate 50lbs of those back in the day in chocolate and caramel flavors. Not sure how I made it out of the 90's without diabetes.


    Another thing I miss is the Twix ice cream in the 1.5 quart containers. It was vanilla ice cream with caramel and little round bits of the wafers that made up twix candy bars. That shit was awesome. They discontinued it probably 10+ years ago.

    Does anyone remember when they used to make chewy candy with the taste of canned drinks? I used to eat the Dr. Pepper ones all the time. They sold those along with the flavor of three or four other kinds (Mello Yello I think was one, too.) They were only around for a few years back in the 90's before they stopped selling them. Haven't seen them since.

    Not really a food item, but the experience of going to an old school pizza hut, where the food was good, ans fun times were had.

    Those might be it. I remember them being sold in a Starburst type of wrapper, though.

    Oh damn, I remember the ecto cooler. That stuff was the shit.

    I remember when that stuff was out, my parents always cooked super healthy in the house so they never had soda or ecto cooler or candy in the house but one summer I was visiting my cousin and his parents had all that good shit, like cases of ecto cooler, chips etc.

    I must have drank 3 whole things of ecto cooler while playing Nintendo and got the worst diarrhea ever. Damn that stuff was good.

    I can only think of one, a candy bar from when I was a kid called "Danish".

    the worst thing about losing the arch deluxe was that the potato roll disappeared along with it. once they started using quarter pounder buns for the crispy chicken, its fate was sealed
