Ever had a favorite food get discontinued?

The Mt Dew thread reminded me of my all-time favorite late-night coding snack.

Mt Dew and Chili-Cheese Fritos. Oh man, between the caffeine, sugar, and fat, kept me coding for endless hours.

Crystal Tab - came out after Crystal Pepsi and was test-marketed in California. Really damn good.

Pizza Hut BBQ Chicken topping - went great with the Sicilian crust.

Well...not exactly a food, but I REALLY miss both Surge and Josta.


I didn't know that chili-cheese fritos had been discontinued though. That is a travesty.

When I was growing up in the late 70's Burger King had this steak sandwich.

The McDLT.

Not a food but I liked those Star Wars glasses at Burger King.

Delaware Punch, although still made, is hard to find in Cali.

McShaker Salads from McDonald's where great.

TGIF's had a great Pork Chop dish that they got rid of.

"Nobody doesn't like Sara Lee."

Quisp - though it supposedly is still made but hard to find

Reggie Bars - yummy peanuts/chocolate/caramel

Panera Bread stopped making their Coronado Carnitas sandwich which was delicious and better than any current menu item IMO

I think Lay's was the brand that use to make these chips called Flamin' Hots. Good stuff!

They still make chili cheese frito lays!

Tabasco Fritos.

McRib. (back in the mid-late 80's I used to have a McRib/McDLT/large fries/chocolate shake meal about every other day)

Betty Crocker Cranberry/Orange muffin mix. Damn those things were good.

Not sure if they stopped making them, or just stopped selling them in this market (TX) as my grandmother found some when she was in Maine for a cpl months this summer. The question is, did she find new ones, or leftovers that have been sitting on the shelves for a year.

When I was a kid I used to eat "Breakfast Bars" for breakfast, then they changed them to these disgusting chewy things, then they disappeared.
