Don't know if you guys have tried it, but during my childhood, my sister and me used to Loooove a biscuit named "Pusti". I can strangely still recollect the taste when I think about it. God please bring Pusti back.

Another product that I would love to have back is an instant porridge mix named "Bonny mix" which again I used to love, especially the chocolate flavour.

And lastly, I want goodday back, yes I know it's still available, but I want the OLD goodday flavour back!

The only way you could act like a grown man back then was a sweet cigarette in mouth.

Remember posting this pic in some other thread on T-bhp as well. But think this is more suited here.

Canada Dry is still available in the U.S. and so is Crush. The Cadbury Schweppes is now Dr Pepper Snapple Group. I guess Canada Dry was misinterpreted by many people in India because of the extra froth and the name 'dry'. When I was in U.S., a desi friend was suspecting it was something like that. I was . But Crush is the best Orange drink and Canada Dry is the best Gingerale by far.

I was just addicted to these real bad. I remember my dad gave me a solid beating after I had 3 packet-full of cigs in a day. The reason, as I was told then, was that imitating a smoker would make me one in real life eventually.

Also, remember Kismi Bar? I saw its advertisement on Delhi Metro stations lately. Couldn't find one in nearby shops though.

Thril was a popular cola when I was growing up in Bombay. But I believe it died a natural death thanks to the dominance of Thums Up in that segment.

There was an ahead-of-its-time diet cola called Do It that claimed to have only 46 calories ("Do It- the taste...doesn't go to your waist!") I still remember that whole jingle!

Citra was relatively newer, released around the early 90s when I was in junior college...remember that clearly because the "tambi" in our canteen used to call it "Chitra"

What I would really love to be back would be the gone taste of Thumbs-Up.
That was one thing which I longed for all the time, but after the re-vamp,
the taste was long gone.

There used to be another cola called Double Cola, does anyone remember it. Thums Up and Double Cola were the 2 colas and Gold Spot and Torino were the orange drinks during my school days

I saw a few Crush bottles on the shelf of the local More supermarket over the weekend. Need to try them.
I would have bought a couple of crates if it were Gold Spot.

Till date, the cola from glass bottles tastes better than that from the pet bottles. At least I find it that way; not sure if its correct or if we can attribute something from chemistry there

This Kismi bar and many other toffees that dont offer rocking discounts to the supermarkets are still available in smaller shops. I have managed to find some Lacto kings and Gulkand toffees in a nearby ration shop. Time to look around smaller shops

Bonnymix is back in bangalore, but tastes completely different (and bland). Its now a plain wheat porridge. The original bonnymix can be drunk as a healthdrink or made into a porridge. It was yum!

There was this 50p toffee called ravalgon, it was pretty big for a toffee of its class and used to taste great. Would love to see that back in stores.

Some long gone brands that I remember from my youth - Erasmic (shaving cream), Ovaltine (malt drink), Loma (hair oil), Det (detergent). And of course those petro companies with their ubiquitous petrol pumps - Esso, Burmah Shell & Caltex... Fond memories all.

Hey I do the same thing too, love love LOVE Double deckers and Yorky and Kit Kat orange, my God I need to stop thinking about chocolates.

Also I wish Peppy's Cheese balls and Picnik get re released. I loved them and they were so common in Mumbai but so rare to find in Delhi, also there was some Senor Peppito chips in Mumbai, which is also not possible to find in Delhi.

Does anyone know any place in Delhi where one can eat Dhabeli, Bombay style, Man Delhi has good food but they miss out on the really good stuff, no vada pav and no dhabeli, even the pav bhaji here is mediocre. I so miss Bombay
