Well, I have one item on the list (Pop-Secret, 1985), but they missed my Fruit Roll-ups, 1982.

1904 a wonderful year

Wow! I can't imagine peanut butter and popcorn didn't exist until 101 years ago.

Wasn't the ice cream cone concoction a Chicago World's Fair invention in the 1890s?

They missed White Castle hamburgers circa 1920.

Tupperware popped in twice in 1946 and 1947,

Popcorn is certainly much older. Pre-Columbian, perhaps by thousands of years.

The ice cream cone is usually associated with the 1903 St. Louis World's Fair, as is the hot dog on a bun, and the hamburger on a bun. Clearly these items existed in some form before then, but the nature of the Fair meant that they became popular.

according to local myth the hot dog bun was invented during chicagos 1893 columbian exposition, as a way to keep a ladies glove clean while consuming... st. louisians claim it was invented there...howsomever, the national hot dog and sausage council reports that "dachshund" sausages w/ milkrolls and sauerkraut were sold in the 1860's in nyc from pushcarts.....
