Oh and as for food, I miss Pepsi Holiday Spice. It was Pepsi with cinnamon flavoring and it was only sold for a few months around Christmas one year.

Oh man! Sorry for the double post, but this is the first drink i think of when this question is asked. I never liked pepsi, but this instantly became my favorite soda.

Everything else that I can remember has already been said, except:

only if you want more from the game. ask yourself that question and look deep within your soul. if you can't figure it out by then well go and rub one out and then think about it some more. thats usually the process i do when i can't make a decision.

One thing I definitely do not miss is Tab. Though then I didn't drink diet soda and now I do (and can't stand non-diet - so sickly sweet) so maybe now I'd like it?!?? Probably not.

Another thing I don't miss at all are pull tabs. The street corners use to be littered with pull tabs. Such a great invention, the can with opener thing that stays on the can.

Also, Tater Skin were delicious.

I've read this whole thread now, and I will second some things and add a couple.

Seconded:
Cookies & Cream Twix
Taco Bell Grande Soft Tacos & Taquitos
OK Soda

Added:
Burger King Cinnabon Cheesecake (These things were amazing)
Taco Bell had this steak flatbread thing, I don't know what it was called but I loved that thing too.
Oreo & Chips Ahoy granola bars
Quaker Cinnamon granola bars

I saw someone mention the Taco bell Chili cheese burrito. If hey got rid of that at my taco bell, I would quit going altogether. They have gotten rid of so much I liked, and this is the last thing left.

The Old Navy I work for does as well, we personally have grape and regular as I just restocked them last night. :lol:

Not every Old Navy carries candy and drinks but if one is near you it can't hurt to call and ask. We actually carry a lot of harder to find stuff like Oh Henry's, Big Hunk's, Zaps, Pop Rocks, and so on.

Something that came out fairly recently (past couple of years) that I can no longer find are the A&W floats.
The root beer and orange cream floats in a bottle were amazing but I haven't seen them anywhere for a while.

Also, Nesquik Cookies and Cream. God damn that stuff is good. I used to get it in the premade bottles from Safeway some years ago and one day it just disappeared. Apparently it used to also be available in powdered form.

A few come to mind:

My biggest item is Fruscetta Sauce-Stuffed Crust pizza. Seriously the best frozen pizza ever and the crust filled with sauce is genius. Way better than a cheese stuffed crust.

Ecto Cooler which people mentioned is great.

They made a Ninja Turtles cereal I loved which was basically a better version of Lucky Charms.

I've never had 90% of the stuff listed here (I wasn't in the States in the 80s, for one thing).

I honestly can't think of anything at all that's discontinued that I'd like to have back. And I've thought about it 3-4 times now.

Edit: Actually, I wish Exosquad would come back. That's probably the only thing I really wish for.

Another thing I miss (not really for the taste, just the nostalgia) are those little juice drinks that come in the clear plastic barrel with the foil lid. I think they're still around, but I haven't had them in probably 15 or so years.

EDIT: Found this link with a lot other things you guys already mentioned, #9 and #21!

WTF Nobody mentioned Nintendo Cereal... I'm pretty sure I didn't see it. I miss Pioneer Chicken, I don't know how big of a chain they were but I haven't had it in over 20 years.

HiC Ecto Cooler was a great drink back in the day.


This was the shit, I hope they bring it back if they ever make Ghostbusters 3.

How about Crystal Pepsi!


I don't remember that tasting too good.

Taco Bell's chili cheese burrito and the Santa Fe Chalupa.


I think certain stores still have them in their menu, they have all the ingredients to make it. If you have an employee that has been there for a long time.

Planters cheese balls. You know, the ones in the blue canister and yellow lid. Those were AMAZING.


Those things were pretty good, wtf happend to them?!!?

Man do I miss Bonkers.

I'll say this (get flak for it of course), I miss Orbitzs the drink.
Also miss Ranch Frito's. They came out with them again but it wasn't the same taste I remembered 10 or more years ago.
Also Miss the Holiday Spice Pepsi and Crystal Pepsi.

Some reason my dollar store has a huge box of just grape nerds and razzles.
