Root beer and cheetos. Miss them, too.

full of grease. Now there's food to make you "eat and run" (usually about
two hours later in my experience...)

Re: food we miss:
Sweden and Denmark has a great thing called "Kari Sild", they are sweet/sour
pickled herrings (Matjesy-kind) in a creamy curry sauce..........my local
Julius Meindl carries "svedske slede", but the sauce is sweeter, with no
curry and with dill.......I usually get half a kilo and mix them with sour
cream, one sachet of curry, chopped onions, bit of vinegar and a touch of
sugar....they are quite good after they've sat in a jar in the fridge for a
few days, but not as good as the original.......
