  1. I was going to say Mother’s Circus Animal cookies, but it turns out they’ve already been brought back!

    So, I’m going with My So-Called Life (Yes, I was a teenager in the 1990s).

  2. ZOTZ that we would buy from the stranger that dished out confectionary to children. so sweet so fizzy. much better than the so sweet soooo sweeeter Dr. Pepper gum yet not as fun as the condom-looking packaged stinkbombs we got from the same guy.

  3. I WISH pepsi would bring back diet pepsi with vanilla in 2 liters. yummmmmmmmmmmmmmm and if pepsi won’t bring that back how about the diet pepsi with french vanilla it was slightly less great but still good.

  4. Anyone else miss those old Doctor Dreadfull sets? I had all of them, and would love to see them come back, bigger and better! The stuff was sometimes icky, but always fun to make, and some of it was actually not bad to eat!

  5. i hope nobody’s said these (i’m too lazy to read all the comments)

    1. old school tart n’ tinys without that nasty spree-like candy coating
    2. old school tv from when i was growing up like hey dude/salute your shorts/sqare one
    3. when wendy’s had a salad bar

  6. Far from original, but I have to say Crystal Pepsi or Pepsi Blue.

    Alternatively, Keebler Magic Middles.

  7. I wish they would bring back trans-fats. French fries taste like shit now.

  8. I would kill or die for the Pizza Hut Priazzo to make a come back. More specifically, the Roma Priazzo. Oooohhh, so good.

    I would also like Crystal Lite to make their Ruby Red drink again. The stuff actually tasted like grapefruit juice. I found it and only had it for a month before it disappeared. Crystal Lite bastards.

  9. I would love to see Dt. Cherry Chocolate Dr. Pepper again…I LOVED that stuff…I miss it so much. Ruby Red Squirt would be another one…it may still be around, but I havent seen it in years…

  10. I wish they’d bring back the old imacs that looked like big toys with their flavour-colour-names!

  11. I’d love to see jellies come back… and it should be socially acceptable to eat those giant pixie sticks at every meal regardless of one’s age.

  12. The original SNICK line up on Nickelodeon, Angry Beavers, and Rocko’s Modern Life.

    Oh and at least one more season of Firefly or another movie.

  13. I would like to see the Mike & Ike people bring back the Cherry & Bub flavor, or whatever it was called – it was a pack of cherry (red) and bubblegum (pink) flavored Mike & Ikes.

    Though now that I think about it, it sounds kind of gross. Maybe I shouldn’t wish for candy that I liked when I was eight…

  14. i would like to see the great american bank robbers (eg billy the kid, john dillinger, etc…) brought back, but in zombie form. they would be fun zombies to kill. forget about these “raised by the tv” zombies. i want some bad ass zombies to hunt down. i don’t want to chase a zombie that stops every 20 feet to catch his breath.

    or rainbow bright. she was cool… and colorful.

  15. I want the soda “OK!” back. It was like orange soda and dr pepper mixed together. So tasty.

  16. I want Arrested Development back! I could also go for a cheesy gordita crunch from Taco Bell. Fortunately, I think the latter makes a return about as often as McDonald’s likes to bring back the McRib.

  17. I’d love to see McDonalds follow Burger King’s XT trend and bring back the Double Whopper.

    And yes, Arrested Development needs to be miraculously brought back to life.

  18. Orbitz drink
    Planters crispy cookie things with peanut butter
    Surge soda
    Day-Glo t shirts
    Wendy’s Pita sandwiches
    Koala Yummies

  19. I would like to see the return of the light brown (tan) M&M. Not only did it taste as good or better than its M&M brethren, it presented an earthy segment of the color spectrum that many people can relate to. The tan M&M was shamed when there were open auditions for its replacement while it was still in the bag. The reintroduction of the tan M&M, even for a limited time, would not only be delicious, it would bring closure to the indignity suffered by the tan M&M.

  20. I’d like to see the old formula for Nesquik chocolate milk mix make a comeback! They’ve made it so that it stirs very evenly and smoothly now, but part of the fun of drinking Quik/Nesquik was using a spoon to scoop up the clumps of chocolatey sugar floating on top of the milk and eating them!

  21. I’m glad the 60’s and 70’s are gone. I can’t think of anything I’d want brought back other than my youth. Oh, and Great Shakes. Those were good.

  22. I want the trend of whatever movie property comes out gets a terrible cartoon show. Whoever stars in it gets turned into kids like Robocop babies or Terminator gets a mokey robot sidekick. It’s all about the terrible 80’s quality cartoons that had outlandish insane storline that had mutants and trips to other dimesions. My favorite idea is a Matrix cartoon called Neo and the Matrix where the Matrix takes the form of a person and they go on adventures through time.

  23. I would love to see the TV show Las Vegas come back.

    I love the Pepsi Throwback, the sugar makes it so good. Im totally addicted to the stuff!

  24. Ok I am totally showing my age here but I would freak if they would bring back Koogle!!! Remember that stuff? Differerent flavored peanut butter spreads…I think there was cinnamon and banana and maybe strawberry but the only one I ever had was chocolate and it was soooo good!

  25. – jello pudding pops

    – Hubba Bubba blueberry gum

    – Dr Pepper gum with the gel center

  26. These might still exist…but I would really like to see Dunka-Roos brought back. I remember showing them off to my friends whenever I had them packed in my lunch box!

  27. I rather like Boo Berry cereal and I can only find it around Halloween time. And bring back Nitro Cola. That stuff was the bomb.

  28. Before there were powerbars and zillion other ‘bars’ – Carnation Instant Breakfast had this really really dry breakfast bar that tasted like chocolate covered flavored powered milk. But it was SO tasty! I loved the peanut butter ones and have never ever found anything comparable.
