I remember those. They were so good that, as a kid, I would eat them like candy, so the actual "healthy" aspect of it was completely lost.

I wouldn't be able to eat or drink any of it, but by gods, I want them back!
I got two of those bottles sitting in a cabinet. Next to a bottle of "Alien Ale." Yeah, I was a sucker for weird stuff like that but didn't like the taste of it.

With the new Freestyle machines, I would have thought this was an option. Apparently lemon is only available with Coke Zero.

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

I really liked Crystal Pepsi.

Also, does anyone remember 7-Up Gold? It was like 7-Up mixed with ginger ale and was absolutely delicious. It was tested and then disappeared. It may have only been tested in Colorado, where I lived at the time.

I loved the Marathon candy bar when I was a kid. No relation to the UK bar, it was more like the UK's Curly Wurly, but not quite the same. It was very popular in the 70's, but was discontinued in about 1981.

Those were supposed to be healthy? I had no idea. I gobbled those damn things down like, well, candy.

As for discontinued food that NOBODY will miss, I give you these:

Weight Watchers recipe cards from 1974

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

I miss chochlate that tasted good. None of the "major brands" have tasted the same since around 2003 or so.

As for discontinued products I used to like,

Royal Crown Draft premimium cola
New Berry Blue cool aid
Ecto cooler from hi-c
Ocean spray Mauna La'i island guava
Boku juice
Keebler Potato Skins

Not a "food, snack, or drink" but sideways related... The old foam McD's containers.

I miss the Baskin-Robbins Chocolate Raspberry Truffle ice cream. As well as their Grape Ice. It's been a very long time since I've had either, but I miss them. Terribly.

Apple Newtons.

Ben & Jerry's Brownie Batter flavor. It's no longer listed on their website, but neither do they have it listed in the "Flavor Graveyard." It's been over a year since it vanished from the stores in my area. Their new Chocloate Therapy flavor is good, but it's just not the same.

Nabisco Vegetable Thins crackers that were actually shaped like vegetables.

Dinosour Eggs, they were these little jawbreaker candies sort of like gobstoppers but egg shaped and the flavors were 100x better.

Super Mario chocolate bars. I haven't found a chocolate that tasted as good as those, don't know the chocolate maker.

Ecto cooler, why the hell did Hi-C stop making this?

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

I loved Crystal Pepsi, and am pleasently surprised that so many people here liked it as well. When the stuff was on the market, I felt like I was the only one that liked it. I think the marketing campaign with that Van Halen song didn't help.
