Common sense is not as common as you think.

Geese: Cherry Coke. Diet Coke with Lemon. Diet Coke with Raspberry, Pepsi Max Cease-fire Lime.

 

The first is for sale at the dairy next door to me (I remember it being on sale originally in 1991!), second I haven't seen for ages (yuk), third I quite miss, that was good, never heard of the last one.

Countdown Lower Hutt still has Cherry Coke (cans) in their international section. I've seen it at Pak n'Save sometimes too.

quickymart: Oh and whatever happened to Eskimo Pies (with jam)? Haven't seen them for years! 

 

They'd have to be renamed as Inuit pies if they were brought back...

 

 

Actually I think they should be called racially ambiguous pies, we really don't want to offend anyone.

 

 

 

 

Eskimo Pies were slabs of ice cream between wafers.

 

 

 

The ice cream bar that was a chocolate coated ice cream log with a raspberry jam centre were called Joy Bars.

Like this? I'm a 90s kid and we called them icy slicees.

Yep - the "Eskimo Pie with jam" is indeed a Joy Bar.

But no wafers on an Eskimo Pie - it's just chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream. I suppose you could put it between wafers yourself if you wanted to.

I don't think they're still available individually at the dairy but both are still in supermarkets in boxes of six.

For what seems to have been quite a short period of time  about 10 years ago Tip Top produced an icecream flavour called Roadworks.  It was the best.

I remember in the late eighties these chips but for the life of me I can remember the name of them. They were a burger ring type of chip (excursions). They came in two different variants Strawberry and Caramel. It tastes similar to dairy food of the same variant. I can also remember the ad on tv, it had some sort of robot/machine making them. If anyone can remember the name of these delicious treats please let me know!

Oh wow, these were amazing. I remember these. My absolute favourite ice cream... happy memories!

 

I also remember searching high and low for them in every dairy and service station some time a few years ago and not being able to find them.... sad memories!

I liked Monster Munch when I was a kid. Good to see they re-introduced it but I can't remember what the old one tasted like to compare it :(

Are Violet Crumbles still for sale anywhere in NZ?
