What products do you miss? It can be anything at all. Food to electronics. My curiosity is peaked on this one. It can even be companies in general that are long gone or will never be the same. Maybe even what you're happy to have seen returned.

What do I miss?
Cheesy Taco Pizza Rolls. I haven't seen them for years. I have from time to time seen knock off ones in those pull back cardboard tv dinners but they just aren't the same.

Pineapple Fanta. This is rare for me to find. I remember one time I happened to be browsing Wal-Mart after work one morning 6 months ago and saw they had a small row next to the typical flavors. I bought all 8 cases I saw of it only to never see it again since then. I've found another company that makes pineapple soda but once again it's not the same.

One thing I love having back?
Lemon Lime Powerade. I used to chug that stuff when I was in middle school years ago. Then one day it wasn't on store shelf's and the school stopped selling it. I recently saw this flavor about a year ago again in stores and am happy to see it's a regular item again.

Microsoft D67-00001 Trackball Mouse. Best mouse I've ever used in my life. Logitech M570 comes closest, but still far from being at the same level. It was discontinued about 10 years ago.

I was going to say Pine Brothers cough drops, but as I searched Google to make sure I had the name right, I learned that... They. Live. AGAIN!

I miss several cereal brands that still exist, but do not taste the same as they used to (I'm looking at you Cookie Crisp and Honeycomb in particular).

Also, just for nostalgia Just-A-Mouse. Electronics Boutique used to sell this cheap replacement mouse. It wasn't exactly the greatest mouse in the world, but at time when you couldn't just walk into any store and buy a new mouse they were a nice cheap replacement.

I'm sure I can think of more, but I'm off to the drug store to see if they have any Pine Brothers....

I miss Surge. I used to drink it all the time, but then Coca Cola discontinued it... Then they gave us Vault which was a reformulated Surge, but they discontinued that too. Mello Yellow and Mountain Dew are just not the same. :cry:

I also miss the real Atari before their assets were sold off. They weren't my favorite game company, but there was something about them that made them special. I also miss Sega consoles like the Sega Dreamcast because I think Sega was much better when they were a hardware and software company.

Citra (I honestly liked it better than Surge). Apparently slightly re-formulated as Fanta Citrus, but that's almost impossible to find.

Swiss Cheese Crackers. Used to be one of my favorite snacks.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

Citrus Cooler Gatorade. I don't think I've seen that shit around here since when you could still buy Gatorade in the glass bottles.

Pumpkin Pie Pop-tarts. So good, but so limited.

Venture. I remember getting "Link To the Past" slightly before release date there and playing the crap out of it. :D
Dagoba had a chocolate bar that was like 91 or 93% Cacao which I liked but I suppose it failed because most thought it was too bitter. I haven't seen one nearly that high since.

Godiva makes one that is 90%. I found them at Homegoods, but I figure other stores have them too, check Kroger or your local grocery store.

Dunkaroos. I'm pretty sure they're still being made, but they're hard as Fuck to find.

And as others have mentioned, I miss Surge. It was my drink of choice in my early childhood.

The overall ergonomics are similar, but the roller balls aren't as smooth and the extra buttons are positioned far better on the MS trackball. While the M570 is perfectly sized for my hands, the MS still feels more comfortable. If the M570 didn't go on sale for $14 with a couple coupons, I probably would've never bought them...at least not for $60 or whatever the msrp is.

Even though I was super young when it was out - I occasionally think about Crystal Pepsi and remember liking it. I could be completely wrong and it could've been gross.

For me the big thing is Amazin Fruit Gummy Bears. I have occasionally gotten them online over the years. It is seems crazy to me that they are still being made yet aren't available in almost all normal stores.

Those still exist and are easy as fuck to get, at least where I am. Just had one earlier today.
