Funny, I was thinking about that product yesterday. I don't have milkshakes due to the high calories, but as an occasional treat as a kid it was one of my favorite products.

Check out this website:

Ethanol-free gas stations in the U.S. and Canada

It lists station locations where you can get ethanol free gas, so you can search forth the closest place. Yes, it is more expensive.

Candy cigarettes. Pixie stix. Any toy made of cast iron.

Ok, I don't really miss them. But seeing them would make me feel nostalgic.

Strawberry Nehi soft drinks. I loved those after baseball or basketball practice as a kid. Every once in a while I will look for them, but never find them.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Found a place reasonably close by. Bookmarked the site.

Carnation Breakfast Bars.

Dolly Madison Zingers - I haven't tried the Hostess version, most Hostess products list beef fat as an ingredient and I am a vegetarian.

Wiper blade refills. I asked for some at the auto parts store about five years ago and the kid looked at me like I was from Mars.

Looks like "Purina" was dropped from the label?

Telephone Booths.


I'm so tired of listening to other people's cell phone conversations about their medical issues, legal problems and other assorted dramas.

The older county courthouse in downtown Los Angeles still has the old wood booths indoors ,on most of the floors. Payphones removed long ago. Great nostalgic look, never seen anyone using one for privacy.
