Perhaps in the traumatic stage of denial, we forgot to bring you some old obit news. Vincent M. DeDomenico, who co-created Rice-A-Roni along with his brothers, died last Thursday at 92.

We tasted the savory food product, but the pasta dish's jingle -- "...the San Francisco treat!" -- will live on as one of the most memorable San Francisco earworms of all time. And, of course, in all our hearts. RIP, dude.
