safeway..........that is is name i have not heard in a long time. that store closed in my area (fort worth ,texas)at least over 25 years ago along with another store called buddies.they were replaced by stores called albertsons-winn dixxe -krogers - minyards and now walmart has taking over.

You are correct, I noticed that when I was in texas from 1992-1994. All I saw was the stores you named above and Brookshires Brothers.

I haven't seen any Safeway stores here in Southern California but there are a lot of Vons stores and Vons is a subdivision of Safeway.

Ha! Well, it was Safeway's brand. Now they have Safeway Select, but back in the 80's it was Craigmont LOL. They had orange soda, line soda and some sort of Mountain Dew knock off. Speaking of which, Pepsi is redesigning their logo, it looks 70's like disco and I like it.

Why did you do this to me? Now my husband is on the phone calling his dad to ask him about it because he remembers it also. Yeah you are right about Safeway selct, but have you noticed that they are leaving and the Ditto is taking over? I have not seen a Safeway Select can in the store, only in the soda machines outside.

Ooops, I mean the GO2 brand. I could have sworn it was the Ditto...lol! Here is a pic



Ps, you get 2 12 pks for less than $5


LOL. Sorry! Yeah Craigmont was probably close to 20 years ago take a few. Yep. I have seen that Go2. Hey, mostly sodas, especially the flavored ones, taste the same so I am all about saving a dollar.

Ohhh yes, it was in the 70's. I should have added that. I used to have a bowl before the school bus came and ran home for the remaining bowl(s)

I have not found a Tab soda since I was a child. That is the last time I remembered it. OK, well since we are all up on the old school food items. Who remember King Vitamins Cereal? I know I am not the only one with this one. They were 10 X's better than Captain Crunch and the King Vitamin cereal were sort of shaped like Capn Crunch. Remember?


LOL. We have Tab here, I couldnt believe it when I saw it. I remember Craigmont soda at Safeway LOL it was their off brand.

I have heard of King Vitamin, but that may have been a late 70's thing....

LOL x 1,000,000 and who could forget the Payday bar? And yet, you can still find Tab soda, go figure?

I was never the pudding eater, but my sister love's them. what is the website? I can ask her to add her two cents in.....lol.

They actually are made by Popsicle brand now but they just aren't the same. My favorite was the multi pack, you got vanilla, chocolate and swirl! Vanilla came in a blue wrapper, chocolate came in red and the multi was in a purple wrapper LOL.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my God! Why did you mention that! Ohhhhhhhhhhhh looooooorrrrrrrdddddddd I can taste it now. I can tell you what happened to it, they started to put that darn Carmel in it and that is what caused a lot of us to not want it. The demand went sour so the supply had to halt.

That is the same thing that happened to BarNone. Anyone remember that? It tasted just like a Whatchamacallit, and then boom, they started to put the Carmel in and now it is gone. Ohhh my god Pam, I can taste that candy now. I will quit exercising for one week just to have 3 cases of those. Oh those thin wafers and crushed peanuts, thin layers of chocolate, and ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh jesssssssssssussssss help me!

I know, they closed a whole bunch here, and Safeway is struggling too. Honestly, I believe it is Wal Mart, these older chains just can't compete
