Does anyone remember the name of this discontinued 1980's snack food?
It was like a "Combo" but different. It was a potato chip on the outside, and it had dip inside. You could suck the dip out and then eat the chip. As a kid, I thought they were delicious. I think the name might have been "Zoodles", but I am not sure.

  1. THAT STUMPED ME. BUT ON THE SAME NOTE , ANYONE REMEMBER THE NAME OF A TOASTER PIZZA THAT WAS ROUND. IT WAS A GREAT AFTER SCHOOL SNACK. MY KIDS LOVED IT AND WE CAN'T REMEMBER THE NAME. IT WENT INTO A REGULAR TOASTER, NOT A TOASTER OVEN AND IT WAS LIKE A LITTLE ROUND COVERED PIE. GOOEY INSIDE AFTER TOASTING.

      Don't remember the name, but I DO remember those--wonder whatever happened to them......

        INTERESTING, BUITONI RINGS A BELL WERE THEY TOSTINNIS OR SOMETING LIKE THAT, I KNOW THEY HAD A NAME. ANYWAY THANKS FOR THE REPLY

      2. re: JOJOGIRL

        they were called, buitoni toaster pizzas. little rounds that could be mighty appealing or mighty disappointing. i liked 'em when the insides were like lava. they were best when baked in the oven. the toaster technique could result in some mighty cold interiors.

      3. According to this site on 70's, 80's and 90's food Zoodles were a " canned product was much like Spaghetti-O's and was shaped like zoo animals. May have only been marketed in Canada."

        Didn't bugles at one time come wih a filling? Could it have been that?

        Anyway, you can scroll throught the web site and see if anything rings a bell

          I think you are right! Thanks!!! That was REALLY bothering me. I wish they still made them. I wonder which company manufactured them?

          1. re: TerBear

            Bugles are still around. I've seen the plain kind every now and again.

          2. re: rworange

            Bugles were made from (highly processed) corn rather than potato. We used to put wee bits of chocolate ice cream on them for the smallest cone in the world!

            1. re: rworange

              I can confirm that Zoodles are a canned pasta product, but I've never had Spaghetti-O's so I don't know how they compare. Zoodles used to be made by Libby's until Heinz bought them out. You can still buy Zoodles in Canada (and other fun shapes, like Alpha-Getti!).

            2. I think you're talking about Doolies.

              I don't know anything more about them.

              1. Cornquistos maybe?... they were like a corn chip on the outside and like cheezewhiz in the middle......

                1. re: Cowboylikeme

                  Bugles, Whistles, and Daisies were introduced by General Mills in the '70s. They were all corn products. Bugles were shaped like miniature ice cream cones, whistles were hollow tubes and daisies were daisy-shaped. They were all discontinued but I have seen Bugles around again once in a while. I also vaguely remember a hollow pretzel-flavored rod filled with something (cheese?) you could (try to) suck out. I don't remember what they were called but "something Combo" rings a bell.

                  1. re: lattelover

                    Combos are still around, if I'm not mistaken.

                2. Doolies

                  1. Came across this thread during my own little search. Does anyone remember Topples? I think they were made by Keebler and they were little triangular chips with pizza-like toppings.
