This has irritated me to no end, especially because the reason they were taken out of their food — the 2006 E. coli outbreak — proved to be false (the CDC and FDA traced it to tainted lettuce).

I don't miss Jolt Cola. The worst migraine I had during my teen years was triggered by drinking that stuff right before a band competition. I had to leave after my band finished, and ended up in the emergency room! My band director thought I was having a stroke.

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*
They also had wonderful toffees as well in various flavors.

Taco flavored Doritos
Where are you? I'm in Los Angeles and I see Taco Doritos at the grocery store all the time.

I miss Hostess lemon and apple pies, chocolate and vanilla zingers, cupcakes and Ding Dongs.

I can't stand regular hot dogs but I used to eat Oscar Meyer Smokies. I've been devastated since they discontinued them. Bar S brand has some but they suck ass.

I miss the Orange shake they used to have at Del Taco.

Fizzies. In the 1960s, they were a flavored tablet dropped into tap water to make a soft drink. Pretty bland as I remember, and the worst root beer flavor ever. They became carbonated and dissolved in water like Alka-Seltzer. You could put a cherry one on your tongue and it looked like your mouth was bleeding. Fun times.

- Pizza Hut "Calizzas"
Any relation to Pizza Hut's Priazzo? a sort of pizza "pie" in the more literal sense. It had pizza fillings and a top crust. The meatza one was great.

Quik brand banana flavoring for milk. man I miss that stuff.

Nehi brand soft drinks. They had all the best fruit flavors - orange and grape being the two I remember best. I understand it's still available of you search hard enough, but they used to be in every convenience store when I was a kid.

I haven't seen it in decades- Quisp was my favorite cereal growing up.


I miss Pepsi Light (kind of had a lemon flavor). When I heard they were discontinuing it, I went out and bought every 12-pack I could find.

I also miss Bomino's Turkish Taffy.

Do they still make boxed candies which have booze in them?
My girlfriend and I got a bunch of alcohol-filled chocolate "bottles" a while back. Shaped like actual liquor bottles, made of chocolate, wrapped in foil, with actual alcohol inside. Fucking awesome. We had way too many of those. They sold 'em at the liquor store.

No, they're different things (Calizzas were like turnovers) but I miss Priazzos too.

I'm in Florida. They started selling them again in the retro bags about a year or so ago. Six months ago they disappeared again. I can't find them anywhere.
