    Hey, Brothers, Can You Spare a Cough Drop? (NYT)

    Any "ghost brands" you'd like to see make a comeback?

    Prell! About a year ago, my husband noticed that Prell was disappearing from the stores. So he ordered 3 cases of it. He's convinced it's the only shampoo that makes his hair look just right ; ). I, personally, would kill for a few bottles of Lanvin's Spanish Geranium.

    BTW, vermontcountrystore.com occasionally orders special runs of ghost brands.

    Hold cough drops. You can find them on the internet, but no stores carry them. :( And I loved Pert Plus!

    All the books I've ever read that are now out-of-print and I no longer have them.

    And Tom Thumb drops.
