    Does anyone remember this commercial from the late 80's, early 90's for a product I don't see ANYWHERE anymore called Riesen's? It was a chocolate-coated caramel candy that looked like it could bust your jaw open. But the commercial was really sweet showing this lady who owned this candy shop giving a paper sack of Riesen's candies to a little boy called "Michael" who kept coming throughout the years to the same shop getting the same little sack of candy until he was a grown man. I remember because the music for the commercial was nice. It might be somewhere on this website.

    I remember that Sonic the hedgehog commercial back in the early ninties where the second one came out, and these kids from around the neighbor-hood were coming over to ckeck it out, then at the end, the Mom says: o.k., just one more friend...GASP, then it shows a whole neighbor-hood gathering that went atleast two blocks down...hilarious.

    Yeah, that's it! I have the commercial on some old tapes of shows that were recorded like 14 years ago.

    Well, the Riesen's commercial I have on tape was recorded back in '92 on the old "Family Channel". So, I think the product goes back around 15+ years ago. It always looked like a piece of cocoa-flavored concrete to me!

    Let me share a couple of commercials from my childhood.

    Arnold Brick Oven bread: Father and daughter at lunch. Father wants to know what his daughter did with the "squishy bread".

    Wendy's: "Where's the Beef?". Y'all remember that one.

    Coca-Cola: "Coke is it!"

    That's all I could think of right now.

    One commerical that I always loved was an underwear commercial. The commercial showed kids putting on underwear that had pictures of G.I. Joe, Transformers, etc, and when the kids would pull the underwear up, they would change into the character that was on the underwear.
    Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

    I liked those energizer bunny ads including the one with the witch from the Wizard of Oz, Darth Vader, and King Kong.
    Also some action figure ads.
    I also liked the Toilet Duck ad
