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?

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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 Anonymous||reply 52||11/17/2012|
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!

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

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 Anonymous||reply 56||11/17/2012|
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.

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.

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.
