25 Foods You'll Never Be Able To Eat Again

This is making me hungry and sad at the same time and I don't like it. What foods would you give your soul to have back?

by Anonymousreply 5911/17/2012

The one of these on this list that I miss the most are the Apple Newtons.

by Anonymousreply 111/14/2012

Every single one of those things was heinous. Good riddance.

Orbitz was truly disgusting.

I never ate or drank anything on that list so it's hard to get nostalgic.

by Anonymousreply 511/15/2012

Not one thing on that list could even be classified as genuine food, so I say good riddance.

Mmmm...Nutrition free chemicals

As Michael Pollan calls it, "edible foodlike substance."

They are all existing manufactured junk food products, slightly modified in color and size. Nothing new here.

That purple ketchup...

good riddance. those are "foods"

I still mourn for PB Max. FUCK those were good. My grandma used to buy them for me.

They are all repulsive and gag worthy and I never had any of them, I am happy to say.

Apple Newtons were really good. Everything else on that list was pretty awful.

Is there a website where you can find different catagories of products that are no longer made,perhaps listed by decade?

I liked the crispy M&Ms

by Anonymousreply 1911/16/2012

Cherry netons were awesome too. Do they still make those.

I liked the Butterfinger BBs.

You can still find Four Loko in hood bodegas in NYC

These... miss them.

Loved Apple Newtons.

I liked PB Max but that's the only thing from the list. I'm actually more depressed they no longer make those Snaps cookies at R24.

by Anonymousreply 2711/16/2012

I liked the PB Crisps. They weren't around for very long, but they were tasty.

by Anonymousreply 2811/16/2012

Foods? I wish more of this shit would be discontinued. What a sickening waste of resources.

by Anonymousreply 2911/16/2012

PB Max had those little round cookie-like bits in them. Mmmmmmmm, I need those. GOD I NEED THEM

McDonald's stil has Super Sized meals, they just don't CALL it that, thanks to the Morgan Spurlock movie. Now they ask you if you want to "go large".

by Anonymousreply 3111/17/2012

I loved the PB Crisps too.

Why is American ingenuity and talent being repeatedly used/abused to create 100% unhealthy AND awful tasting imitation high calorie fake food?

by Anonymousreply 3311/17/2012

The list is gross, none of these are actual food.

by Anonymousreply 3411/17/2012

List of discontinued candy and grocery items.

by Anonymousreply 3511/17/2012

Except for the super sized McDonalds about thrity years ago, I never ate anything on that list. I can see why they are gone & good riddance. Interesting observation: All those things, with the exception of the energy drink were marketed for kids under 18.

I loved Blue Pepsi when I was in college.

by Anonymousreply 3711/17/2012

I remember Surge, it shamelessly promoted itself as high sugar, high caffeine. When I was working in a factory I'd have it at every break.

by Anonymousreply 3811/17/2012

You hillbilly, cracker Americans do realize that this garbage isn't really food right?

Food snobs to the left, please.

Amazed that OP would call these culinary atrocities "food".

by Anonymousreply 4111/17/2012

Um, I didn't call them food R41. It's the title of the article.

by Anonymousreply 4211/17/2012

My favorite discontinued food/snack of all time: Starburst Fruit Twists. They were essentially like fruit flavored Twizzlers--but way better than fruit flavored Twizzlers.

I lament the day that Starburst Jellybeans are discontinued.

by Anonymousreply 4311/17/2012

I think I had the Magic Middles once during a stoned binge. The only other thing from the list I've had is the PB Max which was very good.

by Anonymousreply 4411/17/2012

I'm probably the only person who actually liked Pepsi Crystal--in the world.

by Anonymousreply 4511/17/2012

NONE of them should be called foods by the ignorant writer of the web article - semi-digestable corporate chemical combinations, maybe but not food.

R48, they are very often one & the same. But you already know, that don't you, Lard-O?

by Anonymousreply 4911/17/2012

I tried the green colored ketchup but was turned off by the flavor.

The Sprite remix drinks were intended to be for a limited time only. That's the new trend in sodas.

There used to be a grocery store in SF where you could find this discontinued stuff. It was south of Market, called Canned Foods. Sadly gone, now there's a Best Buy there. Anyway, Canned Foods specialized in dented cans, discontinued stuff, perishables frozen just before the expiration date. Basically a dumping ground for stuff the bigger grocery chains wouldn't sell. Mostly poor people shopped there. I enjoyed shopping there just to see the strange brands and weird items I never saw in any other grocery store. I miss that place.

by Anonymousreply 5111/17/2012

Isn't Big Lots kind of like that, R51? I don't know if there are any in the Bay Area. Sacramento has at least one. They're all over the midwest (or used to be, at least) The merchandise is in good condition, but they have brands I've never seen or products of a brand other stores don't carry.

by Anonymousreply 5211/17/2012

You're right, 52. There's a Big Lots out on Mission. From their website it looks like Big Lots tries to be a dept. store like Walmart. Canned Foods was primarily a grocery store. Did a search and it doesn't exist any more. Probably shut down by the health dept for all the expired food they sold!

by Anonymousreply 5311/17/2012

Almost every one of them was a short-lived marketing failure. No one really missed them. The headline makes them sound like beloved artifacts.

by Anonymousreply 5411/17/2012

It's strange how you never really miss things like that until someone points out you can't get them anymore.Is there a website just dedicated to rare/discontinued candy?I thought those Wonder Ball things were awesome,the chocolate was blah but you got a free little toy inside,of course some frau let her kid get choked on one and they were immediately pulled from shelves.

Apple Newtons were around for many years.

They were so amazingly good. As were the cherry newtons. WAY better than the original fix newtons.

by Anonymousreply 5611/17/2012

I never understood why Fig Newtons took off to begin with. Figs aren't widely accepted in the U.S. I'd have to go to a specialty store to find either fresh or dried figs. Probably a middle eastern place. Figs out of season? Forget it. Apple and cherry make so much more sense for American palates.

by Anonymousreply 5711/17/2012

The only discontinued foods that I miss are the discontinued flavors of Ben & Jerry's ice cream. I miss Gingerbread cookie (aka 'Festivus') and Coconut Chocolate Almond.

by Anonymousreply 5811/17/2012

The only thing on this list I've ever tried was Apple Newtons, and I agree with commentators above who thought they were good. They tasted like little apple pies.
