    I just bought a twelve can pack of Fresca, last month at a Kroger grocery store in the Memphis area.

    Maybe Harris-Teeter can get it for you - they're controlled by Kroger now.

    It was great for all sorts of beverages.

    I have been told, because it contained Quinine, and we're not supposed to just consume it for thirst.

    If I can't get it at the local grocery store, it doesn't exist - I'm not having something like this shipped to me.

    How about Bomino Turkish Taffy and Rock Candy. Are they still around?
    I know the candy cigarettes, both chocolate and peppermint, no longer exist

    I loved those pizza discs! The inside was either ice cold or burning hot. I could go for one of those right now!

    "Everybody rushed to replace valve seats in the 90s and it was a false alarm. Even machines with bronze valve seats didn't suffer.
    You can go to little airports though, and get 100 oct low lead avgas. It's $5/gal by me."


    yep... 100LL still available... 5.50 & up here. no 80/87 though, and 100LL causes problems. and stories of engines certified on 115.... now what. and its more than valve seats. it's detonation. long story about fixes and frustration and learning to live with it. and not just airplanes

    Another millennial here. Local Walmart used to have a vending machine that sold Welches grape soda for 50c a can. Haven't seen that since. So much better than fanta. Also I'm only 29 and since I was a kid it seems like the price of a soda has gone up almost double in price or more.

    Leave them out on the counter for a few days. No more chewy.

    And minimum wage was $1.75. A lot of things about the "good old days" weren't really as good as our rosy memories of them.

    My local ones have a tuna salad spread they can put on the subs. That's the only seafood they have.

    The Morris Minor is very near and dear to my heart.
    My Dad had one when I was a toddler.
    One road trip was very memorable.
    I was about 4, when I learned how car doors work.
    I fell out of the car!
    This was eons before (back) seat belts and car seats.
    I lived!
    Anyways, a dark green Morris Minor lives in my head.
