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

In the 1990s Maxwell House marketed a cold mocha coffee beverage in bottles - "Cappio" - much like what Starbucks sells now but my recollection is that it was better.

Of course, they folded the product just as the coffee bar boom was taking off here.

Gambit bars. They came out in the UK in the mid 80s an apparently I was the only person that liked them as they were gone within 6 months.

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

McDonald's steak, egg and cheese biscuit (which also had grilled onions and coarse ground black pepper). Not a bagal or croissant and no breading on the steak.

Jimmy Dean's sausage, egg and cheese griddle cake sandwiches.

Green onions on Taco Bell's Nachos Supreme and Mexican Pizza. They could at least substitute regular onion,

A regional grocery chain's twenty ounce bottled cola. I live by myself, larger bottles are too much for one sitting and I want more than a twelve ounce can. The eight ounce cans the chain started selling when they discontinued the twenty ounce bottles are barely more than a taste.

TV dinners that had actual pieces of chicken in them (not a breaded, molded ground chicken patty).

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

A few other things:

- Jolt cola

- This dessert that Wendy's had back in the 80's. It was basically a styrofoam box with apple pie filling in it (not the actual pie, just the filling that would have gone in one)

- The version of Pop Tarts that had raspberry filling and a smooth frosting.

- Burger King's American Fries (this was also back in the 80's. Trust me, it was not a 9/11 reference)

- Godfather's Deep Pan pizza

- Pizza Hut "Calizzas"

Jesus.. that stuff was vile but once you started you just couldn't stop.

A buddy of mine and me killed a huge bag of them (think half a duffel bag sized) while watching a movie once. It's like drugs!

They are traffic cone-orange colored crack. I can remember a few movie nights where I nearly made myself ill with those.

Do they still make boxed candies which have booze in them?

They do on Amazon.com and I've seen them during the holidays.

btw, my canadian local walmart has never been out of twinkies. I wonder if they were never manufactured by hostess here in the first place.

They may not be Planter's brand that came in a can but some of the off brand makers like Brims, comes in a big purple bag at DollarTree/Deal$ and Target still manufactures them. Targets comes in a big plastic barrel for under $5.
