One more thing that needs to be brought back from my childhood.

by

About a month ago on WWE Monday Night Raw, CM Punk asked Vince McMahon to bring back the WWF Ice Cream Bars that were popular in the late 80’s and early 90’s.

While watching that classic promo from Punk about trying to bring that product back, I thought of something else that should also be brought back. I am talking about this:

That’s right folks. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pies! I was probably 5 or 6 when these babies arrived. I can remember eating at least one of these almost every day because my parents at the time owned a small grocery store and I was able to to snag them off the shelves whenever I pleased. I am sure Hostess would cash in pretty nicely if these pies returned. Man, I miss the old days.

    I’m getting something back from my past, although it’s not too far into the past. October 27 will make the return of MY two favorite dumbasses….BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD!!!!

    And with the lunacy of sports in Chicago these days, they will be a refreshing change of pace for me.

    I never did try the WWF ice cream bars Fro. Were they any good? Never tried the Turtle pies either, but I think I already know the answer there.

    I heard about the Beavis and Butthead revival the other day. At least 24 episodes are rumored to be airing.

    I have very early memories of the ice cream bars. I can remember taking the the two sides of the bar off, just eating the vanilla on the inside and then later, eating the two sides (vanilla on one, chocolate on the other) with my hands. If I had my choice of what should return first, Turtle Pies hands down.

    I would like to see “Good Times”, “Hollywood”, and “Zero” candy bars return.

    I haven’t seen the Bears play this year, so I can’t comment on their team.

    I saw the Packers last week and am concerned with their offensive line. In this day of constant pressure on the QB, they, and every other NFL team, better have an offensive line that can hold the pocket.

    If Ricketts hires Ned Colletti, as I have heard rumors, then you can forget any hopes any of us had of a turnaround in Cub philosophy. I live in LA, and I can tell you Dodger fans can’t wait to get rid of this idiot.

    Hey Chucky, when you see Ricketts, after you’re done choking him, ask him to hire GOOD baseball people, not dopey retreads on their way down!

    Ernie….The Packers will be in far better shape this year than the Bears. Remember this: Lovie just got his contract extended at the end of last season. Which means he’ll take the next year or two off and eat his stupid pills like there’s no tomorrow.

    The Cubs are doomed as long as Ricketts owns this shithole team. The only thing he gives a fuck about is keeping that dump Wrigley Field the charming urinal that it has been for nearly a hundred years, his retarded street dances to totally disrupt business and traffic around the urinal, and coming up with new statues for the pigeons to use as target practice. He doesn’t give a shit about hiring “baseball people” to get his organization on the right track. I’ll say it right now: The Cubs will be lucky to finish any season above .500 as long as this dunce is in charge. They might get to 84-85 wins some day, but it won’t get them anywhere. I could choke him until his eyes literally pop out of his empty fucking head. It won’t mean jack-shit.

    I remember the first time I had a Zero Bar-it was from a vending machine at a car dealership in Harvey. My mother made something awful like meatloaf for dinner beforehand and I demurred. My soft touch of a grandmother bought me 2! from the vending machine to satiate my empty stomach while my parents looked at cars. Truly a tasty and very unique candy bar.

    Anyhow, Ernie, THEY STILL MAKE ZERO BARS! Hershey owns the rights to them and they taste pretty much the way I remembered them as a kid. I can get them in some grocery stores in Central Illinois. Not sure where else they are available in stores. However, you can buy them at a reasonable price from http://www.oldtimecandy.com/zero-box.htm It’s also a neat trip down nostalgia lane. They also have other old time candy for sale.

    I miss quisp cereal

  9. MadCityMac Says:

    Robert, I think you can still find Quisp- don’t ask me how! When I tended bar, one of our waitresses was a HUGE fan of Quisp- if I could have found it for her then…….let your imagination wander. Yeah, I can be a pig when I have to! ‘tang for Quisp!!

    Ernie,

    What Chucky said about the Bears pretty much sums up what I was going to say. Along with that, the Bears have proved that they aren’t cheap asses. They spend more money than most teams do. However, they don’t spend it very wisely. They pretty much just throw the money in a pile and whoever wants it regardless of how good they are, can get it. That’s how it’s been for years. I am sick of it.

    Mike,

    I am guessing she was a babe? If so, no reason to think you are a pig. You live in a college town that’s full of babes.Living here in Dekalb, they are either crackheads or stuck up skanks.

  12. Nemo Says:

    Quisp used to have some good prizes too.

  13. Nemo Says:

    Disconnect from reality alert:

    Fact: Cubs starting pitchers rank dead last in ERA in National League (4.97)

    Response from Quade: “We might not have a Cy Young winner, but we’re pretty good one to five.”

    I’d fire him for that statement alone.

  14. genrebuster Says:

    And that is the problem with the chronically PATHETIC Cubs organization and their PATHETIC owner (for now, Ricketts stays on my “pathetic list”):

    Pretty good is not acceptable. it’s UGLY.

    Quade is an experiment gone bad. I’m sure he’d be a great camp counselor…but he obviously stinks as a manager.

    I hope he is replaced when this disgusting season finally ends.

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
