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

Josta

Josta was pure awesomeness in liquid form. I was saddened when it was discontinued and it left a hole in my life that wasn't filled until I discovered Jagermeister a few years later.

If Jager is ever discontinued, there will be hell to pay!

Junk food!

As in Scooterpies, the original ones before they redid them to make them similar to Moonpies in taste.

Burrie's Fudgetown cookies.

Archway Chocolate Chip Drop cookies.

Damn....if I could even have one of the three back.

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

Until I read this thread I had totally forgot about the Hershey's Smores candy bars. Too bad they don't make them anymore, I remember them being quite good.

I remember New Coke as well, I don't recall if I ever drank it though, I was still pretty young when it briefly came out (around ten or so).

Yoplait's Custard Style Strawberry yogurt. No one around here carries it anymore. Fuck that fruit at the bottom stuff. I want Custard Style!

My hubby absolutely LOVED Betty Crocker Cinnamon Swirl Cake mix, but they discontinued it.

My ultimate missed food is Callard & Bowser butterscotch candies. My Mom bought me a box whenever we went downtown or to the theater. I loved everything about it--the fancy white box, the shiny paper and how one piece could last for several minutes---a glorious little eternity to a little kid. *sigh*

Now that is just crazy talk. Jägermeister can't be discontinued.

I can't think of anything. I eat plenty of junk food, but I'm not emotionally attached to it on any level.

General Mills Breakfast Squares, I don't know if there was anything healthy about them, but they were great to have while watching Creature Double Feature every weekend. http://www.flickriver.com/photos/298...04/2999975591/

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.
Sounds to me like what is known in Germany as Apfeltasche (for apples) and Kirschtasche (for cherries).

Colman's "French" Mustard.

It briefly came back as Colman's Mild Mustard, but then promptly disappeared again. Although I believe you can still get it in 2 litre catering jars, at 20 quid a pop, but they are far too big for one person to get through before the taste goes off.

Yup, that would be it. I'm annoyed now. Why on Earth would McDonalds have that available in one part of the world but not another?!?

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

Faygo soda pop. I know its still out there, but hard to find. What's odd is the location you DO find it at...like who would have that the BP gas station I stopped at in Huntsville, AL would have a soda pop from Detroit? Its good AND cheap!

McDonald's had an awesome grilled chicken sandwich when I worked there in the mid 90s. It had red sliced onions and a creamy spicy sauce. It was so good. Same with their ham and cheese bagel snadwich, had a really unique flavored sauce...they still have the bagel sandwiches, just not that one anymore.
