My favorite drink, haven't had it since the glass bottle days but I hear they still sell it in the deep south. Sam's Club will order it for you, but only by the pallet.

I don't miss it that much. :lol:

Sour Skittles are still around. I never cared for them that much, as they usually made my mouth sore with that rough coating they have. I prefer the tropical flavors or Skittles Blenders.

I also miss the original salsa-flavored Doritos. Kroger has a store brand that's close, but the original was the best.

Add Funcoland and Electronic Boutique (not the current bastardization know as GameStop/EBGames).

Also, is Electronic Gaming Monthly still a physical mag?

I figured that they where still around just never see em in the check out lane. Are tropical the ones that have blue packaging? Are blenders the ones that swich the flavors and colors around? I think there was a smoothie variation too. And skittles gum.

Yeah, tropical is in the blue bag. Blenders have flavors like cherry tropicolada and mango lemonade. The ones with the mixed up colors are Skittles Riddles.

Mr. Pibb. Well not really. I've never tasted it and I wonder what it's like.


Mr. Pibb is the shit. I love Dr. Pepper but Pibb is way better. The only places I know of that sell it are my local Cinemark theater and Chipotle.

I really miss Pepsi Twist I think it was called, it was lemon flavored Pepsi and I would drink that shit every day. Dr. Pepper Berries and Creme was really good too.

Planters cheese balls. You know, the ones in the blue canister and yellow lid. Those were AMAZING.
Also add Taco Bells Blackjack tacos to the list. I loved those things.

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.


Problem is companies like Godiva use milk or some animal by-product as a filler in their Dark Chocolate.

Ice Cream Cones cereal
Nintendo Mario/Zelda cereal

For companies, Circuit City. They had such awesome clearance deals and I really built up my PS2 and XBox collections because of those deals.


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


Whenever I see them in the late summer/early fall, I always buy at least 5 or 6 boxes since the expiration date is usually close to a year away. They should be sold all year.

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.

When it comes to mice I miss the Intelimouse Explorer. I love this thing, but ti's worn out, and they're also discontinued. I've actually owned two of these.

Add Funcoland and Electronic Boutique (not the current bastardization know as GameStop/EBGames).

The Funcoland price sheets were outstanding. For those who don't know, they used to print the price of every game they sold on newsprint.

Newegg had a run of 3.0's made and sold them around the holidays for around $20-$30.

There's lots of foods I miss:

Wonka Donutz
The old Wendy's, specifically their old chicken nuggets and fries
Wonder Ball
And I'm sure I could go on and on. I also miss Circuit City for sure.

I'm feeling lucky. I've been dreading reading about something I loved in my youth that disappeared without my knowing about it.

Or maybe I'm unlucky 'cause I missed out on all the awesomeness.

I'm googling this stuff and most of these things I've never even heard of. The weird thing is I'm seeing some of the same foods mentioned over and over.

Ohh...here's some I remember(though didn't necessarily like):
Magic Middles

Squeezits

PB Crisps

PB Max

Gatorade Gum

And i remember some chocolate chip cookie cereal commercial with a dog.


Are you talking about Cookie Crisp? I remember commercials with a cop and robber, then cop, robber, and dog, then just dog, and now it has a wolf on the box.

I miss KFC chicken nuggets, WWF ice cream bars, and Mickey Mouse ice cream bars (had chocolate covered chocolate ears.)

Also Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Puddin' Pies.

Those things were disgusting, I still remember the texture of slime. . .

I guess for companies, arcades in general. Internet ruined everything. :(

Discontinued:
  • Root Beer Flavored Nerds - They were really just the cherry ones with a "cola" flavor nerd mixed in. They were delicious.
  • Grape Nerds Movie Box - You used to be able to get a box of just grape nerds at the movie theater. God I miss those. Yeah, you can get the boxes with strawberry, but I just want the grape ones.
  • Dinasour Eggs - Like Gobstoppers, but way better. These might be called "Dynasour" eggs.
  • Tart 'n Tinys - I miss the original and the candy coated versions. Seriously, what is with companies eliminating all these hard sour candies over the years? I thought there was a trend toward that exact type of candy recently.
  • Chocolate Vanilla Creme Poptarts - These have been discontinued at least twice. It was heartbreaking both times.
  • Quizno's Traditional - These were amazing. Absolutely the best snadwich from a fast food place I've ever had. Then Quizno's went downhill and I couldn't find this in the two I tried years ago. Haven't even bothered since.
  • "Super" Doritos - I have no idea what these are actually called, but there were some doritos that had twice as much "cheese" on them. Maybe "extreme doritos" or something. I'm surprised I can't find them.
Altered:
  • Sweettarts - These are still around, but the flavor of the green and pink ones changed to a "sour apple" variant, and then lemon was removed entirely. The only good ones left are the grape ones. This was my absolute favorite candy, and it irritates me to no end. The green and pink were the best flavors. It's especially sad around Christmas, when there will be green and pink only bags in the shape of trees.
  • Sprees - Still around, but the green flavor was also changed to "sour apple," completely ruining it.
  • Twinkies - Yes, they are gone (but might come back?) but the recipe changed years ago, or at least I thought it did.
I swear there's no good chocolate milk anymore. The Hershey's Milkshakes are good (Cookies 'n Cream is godly), but I just want a regular chocolate milk. All of them now are either "dutch" flavored or some other dark chocolate variant.

Oh and real Breyer's Ice Cream... it used to be my favorite brand before they started using additives. Now I only buy Haagan Dazs or the two or three Turkey Hill flavors that are still real ice cream.
