Whatever Happened to These Candy Bars, Cakes, and Cookies?

Question by 電車男: Whatever Happened to These Candy Bars, Cakes, and Cookies?
OK, I live in South Dakota, which is like living with the Engel’s family in the 1800s as far as consumer goods are concerned. So…

Bonomo’s Turkish Taffy?

Chunky?

Mars Bars?

and, Billy Crystal’s favorite (and mine) cookie…Mallomars?

Drake’s Devil Dogs…I would inhale them (no chewing involved) as a kid growing up in NYC?

Tastee Cakes?

Thanks a lot…(I would probably pay $ 10 for a nice Bonomo’s Turkish Taffy right now…but only in chocolate)!!!
Nice site…Thanks. No Bonomo’s! No Sunshine Hydrox…they were vastly superior to Oreo’s (Sunshine Biscuit was located near the Queens Plaza Subway Station in Long Island City).

This site has a list of things they no longer make. It is sad because we used to like a lot of them.
