20 Discontinued Foods - Do you remember any of them?

20 Discontinued Foods We Sort Of Miss (with pictures)

I came across this nostalgic article about 20 discontinued foods. Although I do not remember all of them, the ones I do remember...I had forgotten they even existed! I remember being a young kid looking forward to or begging my mom to buy me some of these treasures. Ohhhhhh the good memories! Haha!

Last month I posted a poll about the Orbitz drink to see who all remembered them as they were also discontinued. Orbitz did not, however, make the 20 discontinued foods list.



Just like songs, styles, scents, movies, or tv shows can take you back to an earlier time, foods/drinks can also make you reminisce. Orbitz, for me, took me back to junior high track meets. Since they were $1 or more (kind of pricey for my family at the time) at Wal-Mart, my mom would only buy them for special occasions or trips. And it didn't even matter how nasty they tasted. Being a silly kid, I was in awe of it's aesthetics. I chose my flavor wisely, as if I was Indian Jones choosing the Holy Grail.



Hopefully this put a smile on your face and brought back some good times!

Do you remember any of these 20 discontinued foods and drinks?

I should have looked at the pics, I remember that nasty Dr. Pepper gum and there were other flavors.

They used to make this milk powder in like crazy flavors like cotton candy and bubble gum and it turned your milk colors. I don't remember the name but I LOVED those flavors.

When I was a kid they used to make these Mickey Mouse ice cream bars, they were so good!

I remember a lot of those (I am a child of the 80's).

I also remember the Smurfs Cereal and Jolt Cola.

Oh, and New Coke. Brrr. Never wanna see that again.

I remember most of these but some of them where after my time so to speak. Probably came out during my drug days so I don't remember. I DO remember Orbits though, stared at that bottle four hours one night will tripping on LSD, same with Goldschlager.

Thanks for the flashback, took me back about 25 years for some of them.

I loved crystal pepsi. I was little enough that I thought it was magic. And I collected the squeezeit bottles because I wanted one with each face. We never bought hi-c but I definitely remember seeing Slimer on the label.

Notexactly a discontinued thing, but I really miss when cracker jacks came in a cardboard box. I wish it still did. Paper's kind of been proven to be more environmentally friendly than plastic. It costs less (less Co2, renewable resource) to produce and can be easily recycled, even if it weighs more and is more CO2 intensive to ship. Plus, the box was just a lot more fun.

Oh man, I remember that our bootlegged copy of Battle for Endor had a commercial for the McDLT with a skinny Jason Alexander (with hair!) singing and dancing.

In fact, here it is!

Yes!! Oh man I wish they still carried the milk. I can't find it anywhere. It sounds gross but the bubble gum was soooo good.

I loved McDLTs - they never came up with a suitable replacement. Hate Dr. Pepper gum - good riddance. Thought Cheesy Poofs were a generic/fictional name made up for South Park.

I remember the little balls had the consistency of gelatin and didn't have much, if any flavor. It was in the beginning of 1997 that I had my first Orbitz drink.

I miss Coke Blak (coffee AND Coke? So good!).


And something from my childhood...Weiner Wraps. It was like biscuit dough that you baked around a hot dog. They came in different flavors. The theme song was a kid singing, "Weiner Wrap a dog. Make it roll over. Teach an old dog...a new trick!" Am I the only one to remember that? It was a 70s thing.

The original Smurfs cereal had blue and red cornballs kind of like Kix (is that still being made??). Being the weirdo child I was, I ate all the red except one so it looked like Papa Smurf surrounded by the other Smurfs.

(The red dye from 1982 probably rotted my brain.)

Nice find on the Jolt. Sad day for my RPG group when it got discontinued.

Does anyone remember the Mc Donalds pizza?! I used to LOVE those as a kid lol. I bet they were gross, I don't remember. I asked my fiance and he has no idea what I'm talking about. I used to get the pizza kids meal.

I just googled it, it looked NOTHING like the picture, only the box does. But then again, I got a cheeseburger last night from there and it doesn't look like their pictures, it was all lopsided and falling out one side of the bun and I had asked for extra mustard and ketchup (since they only give a fingernail size) and it still was like a tiny dab and a TON of onions. Sorry for the rant lol, it pisses me off that they just sloppy-ly slap it together.
