Having Ring Dings at my grandmother's house in Ohio when I was a kid. I saw that picture and it jard the memory into my mind. Gosh, those were so good.

My sister and I would have those with a tall glass of milk for a snack......yum yum!!!

I don't recall the others though at all.

I have never seen them in my state. Sure wish they were here though.

I ate so many and so many variety of yummy Drakes Cakes as a kid that I sugared myself out and now eat no sugar.  Back then I thought that they were a food group.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

You mean they're not a food group?

I know they're a bit of an indulgance, but it does remind me of when I enjoyed these little wrapped wonders with a cold glass of milk!

I went to the store the other day and saw a sign saying that any of these Drakes Cakes in the boxes, are 2 for five dollars! (about ten double packs to a box) So I says to the lady... you mean for five balloons, I can get TWO boxes?

OK, here I go; and got the two boxes of funny bones, which I will make last! (yeah sure Wade)

Food group without a doubt.  Ah the surety and simplicity of my childhood filled with Drakes cakes, the Vietnam War and Watergate!

who remembers the two drakes cup cakes. they were soooooo good. and i remember when ring dings were wrapped in golden foil. and who remembers the drakes comercials for fruit doodles? where the drake was dancing.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I remember three cupcakes in a package..or was it 4.  And they had a little white kind of a frosting in the middle...and I remember the Devil dogs when they were individually wrapped in wax paper with the two ends twisted.  I used to inhale them!  I think it was my major food group!

And Halavah!  And Bagels and Biali's and cream cheese and Lox!   A balanced diet!  yup!   Oh!  and once a week...a jelly filled donut! 

Egg Cream Soda's for liquids...and I think that about did it.

Oh and...Pizza ..those big floppy slices of Pizza pie ...

I'm getting hungry.

I need a delivery of Devil Dogs, I feel a medical need for them!    HELP!!!!

Happy Father's Day to all the Father's here and to all the men who have been a father figure in someone's life..even if it is for Doggies and Kitty's.

I love you all!
