The Kelloggs danish go-rounds box in the mem forum got me thinking, what is your favorite food item that has been discontinued? I have 2: Nut and Honey cereal, great taste and commercials, and lemon jolly ranchers.

It's not really food, but for some reason I loved the Chrystal Clear Pepsi when I was a kid.

My former boss made by far the best potato salad I've ever had but he had a stroke and died. I didn't mind that he died but I regret that I never bothered to get the recipe from him.

Ok, a little weird, maybe a lot weird.

Skull crushers candy. Made one halloween season only. White chocolate skull about an inch and a half long with cherry filling, and deliberately cast weak over the mouth and eye sockets. A good push on the back of the candy made the filling squeeze out through all 3.

There was talk of banning it, but there wasn't really enough time. It wasn't made after the one year, probably to avoid the banning.

Less weird,
Russkoye beer. 24 Oz fairly light stuff from the Ukraine. Needed to be served as cold as possible. Left the US market and I think all others shortly after Chernobyl.

Thanks Jay. Jim VB sent me a link about the candy. It sure looks tempting, but it's not very healthy food.

Is it just me, or does the "b" in their logo kinda look like a .....? Yes, I'm actually censoring myself.

Royal Crown Draft. RC only made it for about 6-8 months and never again. I've really grown to dislike carbonated drinks, but RC Draft was REALLY smooth.

Pizza Hut used to have a specialty pizza called the "Priazzo" back
in the late 80's/early 90's. It was a glorious deep dish pie, with a
thin crust covering the top, and a center loaded up with cheese,
sauce, pepperoni, sausage, etc.

Damn you, Pizza Hut, for taking it off the market! :)

Don't know if it's made anymore, or I just haven't seen it but Jolt Cola. Their motto was "All the sugar and twice the caffeine". It was way ahead of its time. In this day of energy bars, beers, and assorted beverages seems as it would fit right in.

I'm pretty sure I've seen it in the stores, but then again I never really pay that much attention. It's been a long time since I've had Jolt. Maybe I'll have to look when I'm at the store today.

Loved that Turkish Taffy. Freeze it and break it up. Full employment for dentists guaranteed.

Made me laugh!

The old 7 UP candy bar, 7 different chocolate covered individual fillings in one bar. Washed down with a cold Simba and we're talking EXCELLENT baseball card pack opening snacks.

The already-mentioned Danish Go Rounds; like a Pop Tart on steroids and a baseball card in the box.

I also miss some restaurants. Like Rocky Lee's Chu Chu Bianco on Second Avenue at Fifty-Second in New York, which was Sinatra's pick for the best pizza in NYC: “You want the best pizza in New York? C’mon, we’ll go for the best pizza in New York,” Sinatra said, and with that he was calling Rocky from the jet and asking him to “keep the joint open, we’ll be there by midnight.” They served a 20-inch pie on a soft crust so thin that you could roll it up and actually eat the whole pizza. I used to go there all the time when I was a kid. I took my wife there the first time we visited NYC together and she could not believe how good it was, so much so we went back the next night. Unfortunately, it was gone the next time we visited...

Hostess Ninja Turtle Cream Pies... No longer made for obvious reasons.

They were standard half-moon shaped hostess pies with vanilla filling and a green glaze outside... Man they were good!

Buc-Wheats breakfast cereal. The only maple-flavored cereal flakes.

Do they still make these? I only ever had a couple as a kid but I sure would like to get ahold of some more of these.

Coming home from a Brewer game recently we stopped at a Cracker barrel restaurant. They had an entire section of candy and sweets for the 60/70s/80s. Zero bars, 7up bars, many I thought were not made anymore, some I never heard of either. I chose a Mallo Cup, I didnt know they still made those.

oldtimecandy.com has a lot of the older stuff, some cool videos, etc.
