Is there a snack or food item that is no longer made but you wish was?
One really good snack was "old fashioned jellybeans" I'm talking about the big ones where you could wet them and colour your lips like as with lipstick..the outside of them was thicker shell than the ones today and don't have the same taste...and some were spicy ( real flavored) hard to find even at Easter.....I know they make the little.."jelly belly"ones but hey aren't anywhere as good.
The other is the candy bar.." Skybar"..milk chocolate with a toffee/ cream fill...
and last but not least...The big " fruit and nut" nougat cream/ chocolate covered egg....only sold at Easter...haven't seen them anywhere for at least 15 yrs..
My choice isn't food per se. It's a soft drink. Nehi Blue Cream Soda. I used to guzzle those incessantly as a teenager, but I haven't been able to find it anywhere in the last 23 years. I've been to 30 states (and then some) in that time, and I still can't find it.
This sort of answers your question. There's only one store that I can still find these. It's at Crackel Barrel. The Goo Goo Clusters. I love those and I don't know why they are not sold in regular department stores any longer.
Jersey Milk chocolate bars. They were in Canada. Actually, they still are in Canada, but the company changed the recipe and it is not anything as good as it was.
I remember a really sugary breakfast cereal called Oh's. I would eat that right out of the box like candy. I don't know if they discontinued it, but I haven't been able to find it in years.
Yes. Back when Mrs. Baird's bread was still run by the original owners, the company made a snack called a "French Pastry." It was a chocolate sponge cake, topped with cream and the whole thing was covered in chocolate. Pecans were sprinkled on top. Sometimes I dream about this snack and I can taste it in my dreams.
This isnt food but I wish Sobe still came in glass bottles. It really was a major disappointment for me and Im still not over it.
We used to get Wonka chocolate bars with popping candy in it, they were the most brilliant things ever. I used to get them at the bus stop on the way home from school, but they stopped selling them before I got to 6th form.
Ore Ida brand (the french fry people) used to make these things called broccoli bites. They were broccoli and cheese dipped in batter that I could throw in my oven for 20 minutes and have a wonderful snack. I haven't been able to find them anywhere in stores since about 2001. I have recipes to make them from scratch, but it's not the same as being able to open a box, shove the stuff in the oven and then nosh.
Fat Frog Ice Cream! Oh man I miss these when I was younger my mom always made sure I had one from the ice cream truck. They were the creamiest ice cream with candy eyes it was like heaven.
A candy bar from the 1960's that was called a "Seven-Up" bar, best candy bar EVER, hands down! It was seven bite-sized sections covered in chocolate, with fillings ranging from orange cream to raspberry to caramel. There is a similar candy bar today called "Skybar" but it only has four sections instead of seven. Seven Up bars were partly discontinued due to confusion with Seven-Up soda (a brand name thing). I MISS those candy bars! Loved them as a kid, then one day **poof** they had vanished from stores. The closest thing today is seven pieces of Whitman's chocolate! Ha!!!
I wish I could still get those large kippered herrings from Scotland that Cross & Blackwell used to market in oval cans 8" long. All I can get off the store shelves now are herrings half that size.
As a child, I loved this candy called Pop Rocks (I think that was the name). They were small little pebbles almost and when you put them in your mouth, they popped almost like fireworks. It was a funny feeling. I haven't seen them in many years. I'm not big on candy, but they were neat.
I remember that I liked Merlion (Singapore) chocolate chip cookies very much. Each cookie are made in the shape of the lion, the symbol of Singapore. They tasted uniquely delicious. My dad bought them after he completed his official trip in Singapore some years ago. This particular flavor is now hardly available when I visited Singapore twice. I searched for this particular flavor but in vain. This brand Merlion have only wholly chocolate cookies, plain white cookies, plain biscuit-like cookies and mango-stuffed cookies.

What food reminds you of your childhood?
by Corey 8 years ago
White chocolate, milk chocolate or dark chocolate. Which is your favorite and why?I have a close friend who does not like chocolate at all. He is not allergic. He just does not like chocolate. I find that strange so, I am curious about your preferences and why.

What are the differences and similarities between dark, white and milk chocolate?
by Keely Deuschle 5 years ago
Do you prefer milk chocolate or the semi- or bitter-sweet chocolates?If you prefer dark chocolates, what is the highest percentage of cocoa that you care for without it being too bitter for you? For me, anything between 80-90% is great!
