5. Scorched Peanut Bars.

Complete with an ad where a lumberjack straddled a very phallic felled tree.

6. Muncheros.

7. Triple Treat ice creams.

Chocolate, ice cream and marshmallow all in one... yuuuummmmm. (Yes, this is a photo of what Triple Treat looked like in the '70s. It looked a little ~fancier~ in the '90s but it's near impossible to find a photo of?)
