    Orange Julius

    Cold and frothy since 1926. You can make something close to the original at home but nothing else is quite the same. I hear you can get one in Marrero, but 120 miles is a long way to go for a smoothie, no matter how special.

    Swiss Colony

    They had the concept of sampling perfected long before Sam's did. My favorite treat there was something called 'Nutzels.' Really.

    Corn Dog on a Stick

    I don't think the actual brand that we had here in the Mall of Acadiana is still around anywhere, but the corn dog on a stick will always be in our hearts, and in our cholesterol readings.

    Sears Candy Counter

    Snow caps, turtles and cashews. And you could buy just 25 cents worth. I think there's now a cashier stand where the candy counter was at the Sears here.

    Movie Popcorn

    Remember when 'the Mall' had a movie theater? And Aladdin's Castle?
