I thought the Crest Sparkle Fun toothpaste was the coolest thing ever when I was around 5 or 6 years old. I still remember that ad as though it was yesterday.
Although I wish I had gotten the chance to try the "limited edition" "flavors" such as tropical punch and orange. I'd much rather brush my teeth with orange toothpaste than with *shudder* bubble gum...

"She's a Merv Griffin Production"
It took me a couple of seconds to get that joke. I had to go back to when I was 8 years old when I'd watch game shows all the time.

All of a sudden I started to think about Little Caesar's Pizza. I haven't eaten a Little Caesar's Pizza in about 10 years I think. They're just not around anymore. I know they filed Bankruptcy a few years ago, and they closed down half of their locations, though. I remember there was like this "Great Pizza War" in the early 90's where Pizza Hut and Little Caesar's was one-upping their selves. I remember when both of the places had these huge pizzas. They were like two foot long and they barley fit in your car. And didn't Little Caesar's finally "sell out" and offer a round pizza? I think they did. Oh! And the Crazy Bread!! I loved crazy bread when I was little. And the time for a month back in 1993 when they sold the chocolate ravioli. (it was a piece of white chocolate candy shaped like a piece of ravioli and it had a chocolate filling). And the burp bottle that came with the huge package of Kool Aid promotion! I had like 5 of those bottles sitting in my kitchen. I rememner keeping litebrite pegs in one of the containers.
Man, Little Caesar's....I think there's still one in Nickerson Plaza in Hampton, but by the time I got it back home to Wakefield the pizza would taste like leftovers.
