Fast Food and Convenience Food Memories

A coworker of mine and I lapsed into a conversation the other day. She misses Morton's Frozen Donuts which she doesn't believe are made any longer. I said I thought our supermarket carried them, but I would check. I know they sell some types of frozen donuts.

I talked of missing a sandwich Carl's made about 15 years ago--a "Frisco Melt." When Carl's and Hardee's merged and we were to get a Carl's in Florida, I longed for that sandwich--but it never showed up.

Of course, when I lived far away from Hardee's, I missed the Steak and Egg biscuit of my childhood. By the time I moved East, they had a steak biscuit, but not the steak and egg. (and no, our Hardee's wouldn't just add the egg and charge extra)

I know my partner's grandmother (who passed away long before I knew her) loved the McRib with a passion and would get excited each time it came back. I have never had a McRib, but I know other people felt the same.

My convenience food that I miss? Back in the early 80s, there was a dry mix that you added to a can of tuna and mayonnaise to make tuna salad. I loved it. A lot. Every time a new tuna product comes out, I look to see if it is really this old thing brought back. No dice.

All of these things likely are better in our memories and out of our diets, especially those of us pursuing a healthier diet, but what now discontinued products do you miss?
