    Ahhh, Newberry's …… My town, Stroudsburg PA was the birthplace of JJ Newberrys.

    Today the building is a refurbished hotel/restaurant --- unfortunately nobody seems to remember them except for me

    That's cool, it is great seeing all the diner talk.

    I have clear pictures in my mind of the places now.

    I also started to think how it was a big thing when they replaced Howard Johnson's with McDonalds along the turnpike.

    Juice machines are really great.

    We had one set up, a two beverage machine, inside a small shed, that had power, in the country.

    The ants found it one day, so we just switched to keeping distilled water in there.

    LOVED Howard Johnsons

    Everybody always said I was "gross" for loving their giant hotdog --- the "Ho-Joe" ?

    Yes I have and it's very annoying every time I say; "Man you don't remember that!"

    I remember our Woolworth at the Maine Mall had one of those little lunch counters in the 70s and 80s too. I don't recall ever eating there, though. I used to love going to Woolworth and looking for cheap toys. I picked a whole bunch of those great Marvel Comics Video Library (with the 60s and 70s Marvel cartoons on them) vhs tapes they had in the 80s too (like the photo below). I bought like 20 or so of them.

    Our town had a Newberry's. Until today I thought it was just a local thing. I had no idea. They did have a lunch counter. A drugstore across the street had one too. Our Newberry's closed in the early 80s and was replaced with a Sundry Store. It was only open for maybe 5 years and went out, and since then the building has been so many things, I can't keep up.

    All Vanilla Pop Tarts with Vanilla Frosting and Pop Tarts plain with Vanilla inside. I have not seen them in decades but they just about make every other flavors under the sun and over the moon. If you find these in your local supermarkets or anywhere, please let me know.
