I also thought they stopped making Big League Chew years ago since it was modeled after chewing tobacco but I found some at a gas station in the middle of nowhere about 6 months ago.

Damn, I miss the days when the words "missile" and "game" could be used together outside of video games.

You know what? I actually still have a bottle of the purple ketchup in my fridge, with a little still in the bottom. There's no way I would ever try and comsume it, but something has compelled me to just not get rid of it after all these years.

If the purple ketchup is gone, this must be gone too:

Don't know about the others but I have a problem with any food or food related product with the word "squirt" in the name. Not good.

On that note, here's a random list that I found of the top-10 discontinued sodas. http://listverse.com/2008/01/20/top-...ntinued-sodas/

Anyone remember "Hubba Bubba Soda?" (#9 on the list-- and I don't remember it at all).

I cant believe nobody liked this stuff... it was awesome, Ive never tried a bubble gum soda since that compared to it...

Other favs:
Nabisco Swiss Cheese crackers
Chachos Cinnamon Crispana Tortilla chips SOOOO GOOD
Apple Slice soft drink
Cherry RC and Cherry Cola Slice (used real cherry juice)

Fuck, I miss Wendy's "Super Bar". It was sort of a buffet that was split up into at least three sections...one section being a typical salad bar, one Mexican, with all the fixin's to make your own tacos, burritos, etc., and the other Italian, often with small slices of pizza (cheese or pepperoni), pasta, garlic bread, etc.....

True, Wendy's buffet was pretty sweet. Those have been long gone. Last time I remember seeing one was probably 1993.

Re: Products gone but not forgotten

I mailed away for one of those Tetris watches! I forgot all about them.

Anyone else remember the Mario soda made by Shasta?

I can still taste the Yoshi one. Tasted like green apple.

Anyone remember that red crap you used to put on oatmeal to make swirls or smilies or whatever? I forgot what it was called - maybe Swirls? It was a real rearly 90s thing.

I remember the A&W and 7 Up Gum too but I couldn't find pics of them. I also remember the swirl thing for oatmeal. I remember the flavors were apple, cinammon and I think there was a chocolate flavor.

I didn't either. It left a terrible aftertaste. The fact that I can still taste it 18 years later says a lot.

I always like the Luigi one since I found it amazing you could drink something that resembled Windex.

I agree about the aftertaste.

Fuck. Yes. So good, and so cheap. Tacos from there were amazing.
