Remembering Flavor Straws...just for a moment.

I know this post has nowhere to go but back, waaaaaaay back...
Does anyone remember those original flavor straws?

I mostly remember that it had a piece of felt in the upper part that was saturated with an ammonia-based (or some volatile-like chemical!) flavor, like strawberry! I used to take the straw apart just for the felt! (It's a good thing there were no ingredient labels then to titilate our tongues...I can't even imagine what was in them!)

I also wonder why no food company (Nestles?) has updated them and brought them back????
