You can still get both of those here in Finland.
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.
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?
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.
Come on, Kirby, you know there's no tomorrow. It's all about right now.
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.
Anderson’s Split Pea Soup –why it is only online, I don’t know
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.
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).
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"
Pillsbury Toaster Pockets, Cheetos, Doritos 3D's, Cadbury Fuse Bars annnnnd I think thats about it.
Being in the UK, we don't have Cheetos anymore.
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!
Maruchan Tomato Ramen
Guacamole Flavored Doritos
Space Food Sticks
Ben And Jerry's From Russia With Buzz Ice Cream
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.
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.
Our Dollar General store has cheese balls in 5 gallon drums for $3.
