What discontinued food, snack, or drink do you miss the most?

I thought of this idea for a thread when reflecting about "New Coke." I'm too young to have tried it when it was briefly in restaurants. When I was a kid, you could still see it in convenience stores as "Coke II," but I didn't know about what it was at that point. I largely missed out on "crystal pepsi" as well.

I think my answer would be Hershey's S'mores bars. Those things were good, and I didn't realize until recently that they were discontinued. For a while I just thought they were really hard to find.

They should have like a company or website that solely produces and sells discontinued snacks and drinks. That would be cool.

concentrate cereal

It was good. But not much was needed for a serving, so there was reduced profit and the manufacturer stopped making it.

The original Crystal Pepsi, not that reformulated bullshit they tried after.

McDonald's had a chicken flatbread sandwich for a short time that was really good.

McDonald's and good in the same sentence just don't seem right.

Baja chalupas at Taco Bell. Some TBs still have Baja sauce if you ask for it, but they're becoming fewer and fewer.

Most of all I miss Diet Coke with Lemon. I used to go through liters of that stuff every day.

Team Flakes cereal. God, I loved that stuff as a kid. Even now I can taste it just thinking of the name.

Flakes with the same flavor are used in some current cereal mixed with a lot of other bullshit– Honey Bunches of Oats, maybe? I can't recall – but they don't make just the flakes, plain, any more. So sad.

Re: What discontinued food, snack, or drink do you miss the most?

I really miss McDonald's cherry pies. Apparently some locations have baked cherry pies (I haven't seen any), but I'm not talking about those. I mean the original version. They, and the apple pies at the time, were fried I think, or at least not baked like they are now.

Also, Twinkies.

Twinkies are coming back this summer! In the mean time you can still purchase them online, if you don't mind paying $4 for a pack of two.
