Discontinued Foods I Miss

Updated on November 26, 2010

Discontinued Foods I Miss

You can call me greedy, I don't care; But there are just foods I miss and wish that they were still on the market. There are so many good foods out there on the market that no one should miss the old stuff they used to have. However, sometimes I get a hankering for foods and candies I enjoyed as a child or teenager.

I was disappointed when I found out they stopped making Jello Pudding pops. It was a creamy cold treat like ice cream on the stick, it was put out on the market by kraft foods in the early 1990's and the flavors were, chocolate, and chocolate and vanilla swirl.

The consumers are never alerted when a product is removed from the shelves unless it is a tainted or rancid product. You just go to the grocery store one day to buy something and "Poof" it's gone. So you continue on with your life without it or settle for a not so tasty replacement.

For those of you who love Jello Pudding Pops as much as I do. There is good news. Jello Pudding Pops are made by the Good Humor company, Breyers Ice Cream Company. So if you go to your neighborhood store and still don't see it in the freezers, talking to the store owner or manager should be one of the things you can do when you go to pick up some groceries.

My boyfriend went on a frenzy a few years ago looking for his favorite soda Mello Yello. he wasn't satisfied with Mountain Dew. He found out they were not sold anymore. But luckily in the past year they were put back out on the market and he's a happy boy again. You would think being with me would make happy enough.

There was this certain snack food I was upset over when they discontinued it, it was put out in the 1980's "Does anyone remember, Cornquistos? It was a snack food a little like combos, but they were better at least in my opinion. I was addicted to them, and I couldn't get enough. they were little round tubes filled with nacho cheese, picanta sauce and tomato. I suppose they will never make a comeback so I will continue to live without it.

"Where is Krispy Kreme?" This was my favorite donut place and it is no longer in operation in many states, There limited everywhere and if you find one you're lucky and should by a lottery ticket as well, and when you win I hope you start a Krispy Kreme franchise where I reside.

Krispy Kreme had changed their donut recipe's to appeal to the health conscious and because of the U.S. Food And Drug Administration allowing companies to change their nutrition facts labels. If you do find Krispy Kreme they might not taste the same. It is a good thing for the health of Americans. I don't know if that is a major fact in why Krispy Kreme has disappeared, but it would be nice to have them back.

There are so many things that I wish could come back and they won't; but sometimes, you can do some research on the internet and find something you thought you'd never taste again. Many companies go out of business or a product just isn't selling well enough for them and they discontinue it. It is a good thing that other companies see the need for some of these products by the consumers who enjoyed it and they will buy the idea from the previous company and market it themselves.

If there is something you miss and want it back, getting a petition started and sending it in to a company might work if the company is still in existance, and if it doesn't work at least you tried. Just enjoy what's already out there.

      I love Krispy Kreme too... . to me it's like angels threw the recipe down to earth. There is a Krispy Kreme about

      15 miles from my home and it's been there about 9 years. There were a couple of others closer to my home but they closed down. I'm actiually trying to cut back anyway so I have to quit talking about Krispy Kreme before I jump in my car and drive that 9 miles for my favorite donuts. It would be nice if they start popping up all over the place again like popcorn in a hot air popcorn popper.

      Krispy Kreme is making a comeback for sure. They just opened a brand new store in my neighborhood. I think their donuts are really fabulous! You can go to their website ( and under Store Locator see if one is near you.

      Sunshine biscuit company and Hydrox cookies their answer to oreos, but better. Mama's Cookies a Cincinnati company gone after years. All the different ones they had. We ate them by the box load as kids. Oh and we have a Krispy Kreme about 2 miles from us. It isn't as good as it used to be. The ones in the stores are actually better. All the different flavors of Barq's soda. Grape, Lime orange,Lemon-lime, and red pop, Oh and Red Lightening red pop. Where has all the good stuff gone?
