Obsolete Products? Empty Obsolete Products?

Post by MrsG on Thu 17 May 2012, 8:55 pm

So, the other day, I was wondering what happened to some of the foods & games I used to enjoy as a child. Had I just become unaware of them now I had grown up or were they no longer available....?

I remember really enjoying Vanilla Coke & Lucky Charms but haven't had them for years! My family and I used to have competitions on a game called screwball scramble which was kind of a maze you needed to get a metal ball around from start to finish with obstacles on the way.....

Anyone else remember something really fondly from their childhood they havent seen for years?

Vanilla Coke still appears occasionally. Though as I'm not a great fan the last appearance could be any time in the last eight years.
Dab It Off: A glass bottle full of a magical fluid and a pad on the end when you opened the top. The dampened pad would remove almost all stains from almost anything. Alas the fluid was carbon tetrachloride and desperately carcinogenic.
Space Dust: A child's confectionery that fizzed and crackled on you tong in the most delicious way. Often made a re appearance being bought by late teenagers or early twenty somethings when it became a pleasure for two.
Donkey Stones: the concept would take too long to explain. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Miss my etch-a-sketch - although to be honest, I could never draw anything of merit...just my name really!

I genuinely do miss my record player....the crackle as it started and the click of the arm.....my brother would argue he is glad I don't have one after I drove him crazy playing 'these boots are made for walking' over and over!!!

Oh my god! I wish we still had as much humour around, seems like companys are too concerned with being PC...can you imagine if there were 'Hedgehog' flavoured crisps now?! Although I'm a massive supporter of RSPCA and the like, they wouldn't see the funny side!! affraid

Golden Wonder have recently been bought out by Tato (Irish crisp maker) Though Golden Wonder had lots of industrial unrest in the mid eighties the reason I always believed that Golden Wonder had virtually disappeared was:
1988 the year of the Piper Alpha Oil Platform disaster I was always led to believe the years largest insurance claim for the UK was the Golden Wonder crisp factory going up in flames.
Tried the interweb to the point of desperation. Can anyone find a link?

Thanks. Seen that one, looks like they were a bit careless and set fire to it again in 2009.
