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.

QFT. Milk Chug used to have good chocolate milk but not anymore. Richfood also used to have some really smooth chocomilk before changing the chocolate.

Costco used to have this really good "Carne Asada" steak, but it is not sold anymore.

Wendy's also used to have their cheese fries in their baked potato boats, but nowadays they just give you a tiny cup. First their fried chicken, now this.

I also miss Free Radical, I fucking loved the TimeSplitters franchise, probably my favorite PS2 series.

I got some last week and it was in a side salad tray?

^This. The Lunar games were awesome (though I don't care for the PSX port of SSS) and Popful Mail is one of the funniest games I've ever played.

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.


Dean's TruMoo is pretty good. Get it from the cafeteria some times. YooHoo is my personal chocolate drink of choice though. Loved it since high school.
Also, I REALLY fucking miss Wonderballs, it was so cool as a kid eating around the chocolate and trying to figure out what you had inside. They could bring those back added with the dozens of recognizable Disney characters that have been introduced since then.
Don't ask me how this is even possible, but I was at the DMV around late 05' early 06', and while I was chilling I the parking lot this ice cream guy came by and was selling WWF bars. :hot: No clue how, I think I ate years-old ice cream. :lol: He even had mthe sign for WCW bars on the side of his truck! :D

For me it would be:
Squeezit Jello
Ghostbusters bubble gum in a tube
Berry Berry Kixs
Surge
Gak or Floam or even the "slime" that came with the ghostbusters firehouse.

3D Doritos - The only Doritos I ever ate (besides the Blazin' Buffalo flavored which I now hear is gone as well).

Taco Bell's Chicken Ceasar Salad Grilled Stuffed Burrito - I hate at Taco Bell almost every day after baseball practice just to eat this delicious ass burrito and then it left and never came back. :-(

My father and I used to go to a place called The One and Only Burger and get The Pizza Burger. Memories man.

I miss Surge like no other. I remember when Coke launched the product, they had reps come to our school and handed out free bottles, shirts and caps. Then we had about 4 Surge machines put in at 25 cents a can. Then they raised it to 35 cents a can and randomly you had a shirt packed on top of a can. After it was raised to 45 cents schools raised concerns about healthy eating and removed all the Surge machines and replaced them with Pepsi One machines. KILL ME NOW.

I loved Vault and still have about 4 unopened 12 packs in my kitchen in case the resale value ever hits crazy Surge like.

I love all things Dr. Pepper, but that was by far the worst tasting soda ever.

Agreed.

How about Crystal Pepsi!


WOAH ! My stepdad has a few of the model "Microsoft Trackball Explorer 1.0" brand new in the boxes. Are these worth anything ?

3D Doritos - The only Doritos I ever ate (besides the Blazin' Buffalo flavored which I now hear is gone as well)

They still make that flavor, but if it's not in your area, I suggest keeping an eye out for the Doritos Jacked Ranch Dipped Hot Wings. I just picked them up from the store and I swear they taste the same.

I see a lot of people mentioning the Wonderball, and I too miss it. You can blame it's demise on the FDA and those dumb kids out there who bit into the thing without reading there was a toy inside. And it just wasn't the same when they brought it back with SweeTart-like candies inside it and a sticker.

FYI, try talking to your grocery store manager. Some places will actually do a special order for you if they don't have a product that you want.

WOW. That's crazy. Never thought I'd see that come back.

EDIT: For all you wonderball people out there if you have a Party City near you check there. I used to work at one and we stocked those wonderballs there in the candy section of the store. This was about a year ago.
