    You probably had to play baseball growing up to remember, but David's used to make a Salsa flavor of Sunflower Seeds. Can't even find a picture.

    They make these Jalapeno Hot Salsa ones now, but the original Salsa ones tasted better, and were more subtle. Which matters when you're eating whole bags in a dugout.

    Also, before they started using Hardy's biscuits, Carl's Jr used to use croissants for their breakfast sandwiches. The croissant sunrise sandwich with sausage was goat.

    Dunkaroos! I'm assuming they're discontinued... I haven't seen 'em in quite some time.

    Also, can I put drinks?

    Yeah. That were awesome. I ate tons of those things. In retrospect, I wish I had tried making "Italian nachos" out of them.

    I remember that stuff too. It was good.

    Big time. If they were smart they would bring back the old Pizza Hut style. It felt like a real restaurant. Now it feels like a fast food joint. They can bring back the original recipe for their pan pizza too while they're at it.

    I agree. They also stopped using the original "special sauce" they had for the Arch Deluxe (sometimes they even used Bic Mac sauce instead). They did that to cut costs because they spent a shitload on marketing that burger and sales didn't come close to covering their loses.

    I never had an opportunity to try it, but I read the box it came in could not fit through the drive through window without turning it sideways. <45>

    That has not been my experience. Last time I tried it was like 6 months ago, and it had never been worse.

    Hands down my favorite cereal of all time. They were discontinued before I even made it to Kindergarten, and I nagged the shit out of my parents for them after the fact. No luck.

    There was a non crisp PB-Chocolate they had I wish they would bring back.
    For awhile you could Cheddar Cheese on a Wendy's burger for better than that
    American cheese crap in fact I wish Wendy's you have the option to choose which
    one you want. If it cost extra it would be worth it.

    Don't see many Godfather's around here any more I miss their Taco Pizza, hands
    down the Pizza IMO.

    the arch sauce looked disgusting but tasted delicious, i was a fan. i also preferred the fake round pepper bacon to the real bacon that replaced it in the late '90s (in canada at least)
