Eat a bowl of Mr. T Cereal again!

Is there any food that you used to eat as a kid that you wish would make a comeback?

In this brief — yet lively — video, our experts ponder what foods they'd love to see back on store shelves.

What about you, readers? What food from your childhood would you want brought back to life? Tell us in the comments below.

Also, Twix Cookies & Creme bars. And Alexander the Grapes! (The new Grapeheads just aren't the same.) And Snapple Tru Root Beer and Cherry Lime Rickey (back when it was a pop company).

I also wish Tom Tucker Mint Ginger Ale was available outside of western PA.

I used to love Jell-O 1 2 3 which is actually something from my MOM's childhood, that somehow my grandmother had stockpiled in the kitchen and would make for us.
