Paul Newman's Light Italian Salad Dressing. That stuff existed in it's own unique realm of tastiness.

The original Crystal Pepsi, not that reformulated bullshit they tried after.
Heck yea . Loved that stuff, none of the caramel coloring crap. Don't mind Pepsi with sugar in it, but could do without the caramel coloring.

Spearmint and Peppermint Skittles . Loved those and still wish that they made them.

Really??!!??

That stuff tasted like tootsie rolls gone bad. At least to me.
I thought they looked like dog turds. And didn't taste a whole lot better.
Really?

Explain how you know the part in bold face!

come on, who among us haven't gotten a little curious, and been walking in their neighborhoods, when the opportunity presents itself, we reach down, look around to make sure no one's looking, and...


or was that just me?

How did I miss out on that one? I love Skittles... yeah, I know, being diabetic they are off limits... but, every once in awhile they make a great morsel of yummy-ness.

Looked today & could not find 3 Musketeers Mint. I think this thread jinxed me!

Not sure why, but when I crave sweets, only dark chocolate or mint... preferably both, are what satisfies me.

I miss the fudgesicles that Trader Joe's used to sell. One day they disappeared, never to return. Also, the chili flavored frozen fruit floes. They were sweet and spicy. Delicious! Then one day they too disappeared. Me very sad.

Pearson's Mint Patties are my jones as far as chocolate & mint goes.

I did love those mint 3 Musketeers too, seems like they came & went a couple times.

Russell Stover has a sugar-free version, but the taste is only so-so. Around here, York Peppermint Patties are the go to. Klondike Bar makes a York Peppermint Patty version which is quite good.

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

While not necessarily discontinued. I had a friend once who loved the soda Big Peach, but he couldn't find it anywhere. He finally found it once in some out of the way gas station and savored the hell out of it...ah who I am kidding, he probably polished off the case in one afternoon.

We had a Murray Brothers candy store in our mall some 7 or 8 years back, before the entire place became a wasteland of shattered dreams and bottom market housing, and one of the neatest things they had were their own sugar free peppermint drops. They had creme in the middle and dark chocolate on the outside, and they were delicious. They were expensive, so they were a rare treat, but they were so good!

Space food sticks--better than tootsie rolls. Hard to find.

You used to be able to buy THC infused sprits from a few online dealers out of Europe as there was no US law against it. However, in the last year or so it's impossible to find the sites through web searches and most of the sites i was able to refined no longer sold said products over the Internet. It is interesting timing, because several CA based wineries and breweries were starting to produce THC infused wine and beer for the states "medical" marijuana dispensaries, and there are several Colorado breweries and distillers who were starting up production of THC infusions with that states legalization.

I wonder if the importation issues are connected with the introduction of domestic production.

That being said, from the looks of things online, it is not too difficult to make home made infusions, if one were so inclined.
