You can still buy Quisp.
I have not seen it in stores for years.
Two of my local grocery stores carried Quisp for as long as I can remember, but one just discontinued it last month or so because nobody here was buying it (they had to mark it down to nearly a dollar to get rid of it all).

Stuff I miss:
-The original Kellogg's Apple Jacks--ever since they went whole grain, it hasn't tasted the same.
-Crispy Wheats 'n Raisins--it briefly became Wheaties with raisins, but then vanished.
-Pappalo's frozen pizza--I know some people didn't like them, but it was comfort food for me. Used to buy one every week.
-Tony's Deli Style frozen pizza--losing this one pissed me off no end. It was actually the best tasting frozen pizza I ever had--like it just came from a real pizzeria--and it just up and vanished one day. I'm still devastated.
-Smurf Berry Crunch Cereal--childhood memories watching The Smurfs every Saturday morning with a bowl of this.
-Sammy's Best Basin Street Barbecue Sauce--a really awesome all-purpose sauce from the late Sammy Davis Jr. You could put that stuff on anything.

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

Frozen pizzas I used to be able to get at Costco, but can't anymore. I don't know if they're not made, or if Costco just decided to stop selling the fuckers:

- Home Run Inn cheese-only

- This thing I can't remember who made it, but it had a buffalo sauce-style topping and blue cheese in addition to the mozzarella

- Amnon's

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

I love DiGiorno's Buffalo Chicken pizza. It is getting hard to find lately, but oh so yummy. Mom and I both enjoy Frechetta's Canadian Bacon & Pineapple pizza. It used to be a staple at our favorite pizza joints, but most of them went out of business over the years. (Both are rising crust pizzas, so we only get them once in a great while.)

EDIT: Seems the Buffalo Chicken pizza is no longer on DiGiorno's webite, either.

cocoa puffs cereal bars(the only flavors I see now are honey nut cheerios and cinnamon toast crunch)

pop tarts go-tarts, the little pop tart bars they had for a short while

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

Back in the 90s, a local place made the most awesome fresh breakfast pizzas. Pizza crust topped with salsa (probably Pace Picante Sauce) and scramble eggs, bacon, sausage, and cheddar cheese. I could go for a slice.

- 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.
No, they're different things (Calizzas were like turnovers) but I miss Priazzos too.
I miss Priazzos too. When I was a teenager I worked in the kitchen at Pizza Hut and would sometimes make my own. Damn they were good!

Even Wal-Mart alternates between having & not having my favorite Digiorno's pizza (3 meat rising crust). They always blame it on the vendor.

That's why I keep 3 or 4 of them in the freezer at any time, in case it's a couple weeks before I can replenish.

Origianl recipe Three Musketeers bars
Oh, no, I used to love Three Musketeers! What have they done to them?

ETA that I got my answer here. Not sure I like the sounds of it.
So I decided to try one of the new ones today. Meh. I won't bother again.

not technically discontinued, but my uncle can't get bottles of weed-infused absinthe through customs anymore
I've tried an absinthe and a beer that were weed infused, I can only view such customs bans as a mark of refined taste.

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

I remember some years ago Breyers used to make this really awesome variety of ice cream. It was a mint/chocolate mixture with M & Ms, and it was one of my favorites. Then it mysteriously disappeared for no apparent reason.
