Mourning my long-gone favorites

I have so much to post -- about the anniversary party, our trip to Florida, my birthday present from my sweet husband -- but since getting back from vacation, I'm as scattered as hashbrowns at a Waffle House. So in the meantime, here's something to ponder (I know I'm about to date myself):

Do you ever wonder what happened to corn diggers and potato chipsters? If you're in your late 30s/early 40s, you probably took these in your school lunch every day. I did, and I'm seriously missing them. Chipsters were little yellow, tongue-shaped potato curls, light and airy as the commercials described them. Corn diggers were little square waffles-looking thingies, with two sides pinched together, that tasted like Bugles, only much better.
Nabisco claims demand was too low so they discontinued them both many years ago. I've not had a chip since that is as good as those.

I found them and ordered them from a company in France. The link to order them is:
