McDonald's Arch Deluxe
McDonald's Pizza

I liked The Arch Deluxe and the McPizza too. I remember the McPizza was available as a Happy Meal option. I don't know why they got rid of The McPizza, but The Arch Deluxe was as big of a flop as New Coke.

•   Quaker Cap'n Crunch's Oops! Smashed Berries (This was made right after The New Millennium back in the days where there were no green berries. After this was discontinued, they added the green berries in 2002/2003.)

http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/money/industries/food/2003-04-07-blue-ketchup_x.htm

Apparently - looks like red, green, purple, pink, orange and teal (plus the blue) per the article.

OK - Any of the New England folks remember Squeeze sodas?

^I knew it, there was a blue version of the Heinz Ez-Squirt Ketchup in addtion to the green, purple, and "traditional" red colors!
Perhaps the blue Heinz ketchup wasn't as memorable as the green and purple ones! :(

They still manufacture Ravioli-O's, you know. They are just super hard to find. My local Super Kmart Center carries them as well as Discount Drug Mart which are Ohio family owned pharmacy stores.
Here is a link to their website: http://discount-drugmart.com/

They still make Dunkaroos, they're now just as hard to find as Ravioli-O's. As for the Nestlé Magic, they later replaced the toy prize inside due to a law banning toys inside foods (and that's why you never see  Ferrero-Rocher's Kinder Surprise chocolates in US stores). The law dates back the 1930's. So Nestlé ended up putting candy inside the chocolate balls and later rebranded the product as "Wonder Ball".

I think that the ban on toys inside candy should be lifted (it is a stupid 1930s law anyway),  and put warning labels be put on the Kinder Surprise product label just like they do with any product that poses a choking hazard to children under 3 years of age.

That silly law regarding toys in food doesn't stop fast food restaurants from putting toys in kiddie meals, but it may have stopped companies from putting prizes in cereal boxes. But then how are fast food kiddie meal toys and cereal box prizes legal?
