I miss the old Ben & Jerry's. I haven't had it for 2 years because of nursing a diary-sensitive LO, but DH says it just isn't what it used to be - filled with air and the "chunks" are now the size of sprinkles.
Yes Ben & Jerry's just isn't the same anymore you used to find huge gobs of cookie dough etc. now your lucky to find a piece or two!

Yes I LOVED THAT.... It came in GLASS BOTTLES... a total pain to get home from the store...

I just found PIXIE STIX for halloween... man was I in heaven

And right now the dollar section at Target has those wax candy things filled with quasi soda. (I just spent 15 mins getting wax out of my front teeth)

You can get it in single serving bottles at some convenience stores. I have seen it. We don't buy nestle and I can't drink milk so I don't know if it is good.

I really loved Clearly Canadian too. They still make it, I've seen it in my grocery store. But it comes in a plastic bottle now and only like 2-3 flavors. When I was a kid I remember there were a ton of flavors to choose from. One of my favorites was Green Apple. My dad used to take me to the corner market to pick out something to drink when we delivered the Sunday paper together. I always picked a Clearly Canadian.

I remember the peanut butter boppers. My faves were Carnation Instant Breakfast bars, the *ORIGINAL* Whatchamacallit, and Cheez-Waffies. The latter was available in certain markets, but is now pretty rare on the East Coast by some Wise factories, but not in the entire Wise service area. So I guess I should move back to NJ.

Under Cover Bears! It was oatmeal with gummy bears in it, when you added the hot water the bears came out of hiding. Mmmm warm gummy bears for breakfast!

Me too! The Cheez Waffies are still around in rare spots. My mom sometimes spots them and sends me a package. The neon orange filling is as good as ever. I can eat the whole bag in a sitting... And those Carnation bars were so good--just a little crumbly in the middle.

I have 4 of the alien magnets on my fridge right now

Marathon bars. It was who knows what covered in chocolate... 2 thin strips kind of braided together...

DH misses toaster pizzas he had as a kid.

They still make it! I'm going to have to look more carefully to see if we have it around here. Although, I don't know as it would be the same if it wasn't in a funny shaped glass bottle

Not me but DH is very sad over no longer being able to find "Big Sticks" which apparently are some sort of Popsicle.

Chocolate Koogle. It was a Kraft product made with peanut butter and other delightful things swirled into it.

Oh they changed the Spaghettios! That makes more sense. I ate a can the other day and almost threw up they were so gross. I was like, "how did I EAT these as a kid?!"

Fanta Red Cream Soda. Omg. So good. They have Fanta soda now, but it's not anywhere near the same as Red Cream. I remember when they started becoming scarce... I was 10, and I had 2 cans with me at school and some kid bought one from me for $2.

I wish I hadn't sold it and kept it because now I waaaant some waaaah!!!

Keebler used to make flour tortilla chips that were SO good. The only problem was that you had to choose between cinnamon sugar and spicy cheese, the dilema usually drove you to purchase both. I look for them every time I go to a new grocery store, hoping that they're still made.

Isn't there a musuem for discontinued food products?

Space Food Sticks - they came in chocolate or peanut butter, chewy sticks that we were sure that astronauts ate for sure!

Uno bars - do they still make those?

Chocolate pudding in an individual-sized can (I think Del Monte) - it had a certain taste that, for some reason, I loved...once in a while I have a pudding that has a hint of that old flavor, whatever it was...now I make my own fron scratch which I love, but still that old flavor lingers...

I am sure that there are others that I will spend the rest of the day longing for!!!
