Nostalgic People Share Which Discontinued Products They Wish Would Make A Comeback

Ah, remember when times were simpler? And we had cool games and candy that was bad for you and nobody gave a crap about 'high fructose corn syrup? Those were the days. Like everything else in life, all good things must come to an end. Especially with the rolling change of the culture. But wouldn't it be great to have a revival of a few things?

Redditor _\littlebeepboop _**was dying to know... **\What discontinued product do wish would make a comeback?

I LOVE FIZZ....

In Germany, there used to be this ice pop in a cup that was full of these fizzy bits that fizzed up on your tongue. It was called Blizz and came in two flavors, lemon and cola, and was intensely sour and really refreshing. It was released in 1994 or so and stopped a few years after. Even after so many year, I totally miss it.

TETRIS BEFORE TETRIS...

All the Lego products they no longer make, like Mars.

Cosminion

Agreed. Want them to bring back some lines like their old Knights and Castles. And not high-tech knights with flying or moving castles or any crap like that. Just the old sets/figures are fine.

Nickrobl

I want a remastered classic castle line so badly! Lego would be able to milk the crap outta that!

PEANUTS FOREVER!!

[rebelmouse-image 18353192 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

There were these peanut butter snacks made by Planters, I don't know what they were called. They were made out of the stuff that ice cream cones are made out and filled with peanut butter. They were shaped like little peanuts. I miss the hell out of those.

THE WHEELS ON THE BUS...

[rebelmouse-image 18345683 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Full sized spare tires in cars... please and much thanks

DON'T DOWNGRADE...

[rebelmouse-image 18353193 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The original formulation for Pyrex glass that wasn't so brittle.

THE EXTRA SURPRISE!

[rebelmouse-image 18978763 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Cool toys in kids' cereal boxes.

STRAWBERRIES FOREVER!

[rebelmouse-image 18978764 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Those lifesavers hard candies with the cream and flavor (I loved strawberry).

And Philadelphia cream cheese bars. Those were my jam in middle school.

FRED & THE GANG!

[rebelmouse-image 18978766 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Flintstones Push Pops!

IT'S HOW I LEARNED TO SPELL...

[rebelmouse-image 18978768 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Alpha Bits cereal.

There wasn't anything special about the flavor (very lightly-frosted cheerio-like flavor). But every morning before pre-school and kindergarten, I would eat these for breakfast with my mom and we'd play the 'Alpha Bits game.' I would randomly pick a letter from my bowl, and we would take turns coming up with words that started with that letter. When we couldn't come up with anything anymore, we would shout 'Eat It!' and I'd eat the letter. Yes, breakfast took a while, but it's a great memory.

BOO!

[rebelmouse-image 18978769 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Dembones Halloween candy. They were little candies in the shape of a skeleton and were like a mix of smarties and sweet tarts.

CHEESE BALLS!!

[rebelmouse-image 18978770 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Planters cheese balls (from the can), or their cheese doodles.

Temeriki

Cheez, bud, Cheez. Not cheese. Those sonsabes. The least they could have done is sold the equipment and recipe to someone so that we could still get them. I've tried hundreds of kinds of cheese balls and still haven't found anything that can touch Planters Cheez Balls.

IT'S REAL CHICKEN!

[rebelmouse-image 18978771 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I can't find if anyone has mentioned it already but oh my gatos WENDY'S SPICY CHICKEN NUGGETS. All time favorite fast food item.

[rebelmouse-image 18353233 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Altoids Mango Sours!

AH THE SWEETS...

[rebelmouse-image 18978772 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Dunk-a-roos.

Liveforever1990

Teddy Grahams and funfetti frosting is totally Dunkaroos childhood nostalgia.

SIGN ME UP!

[rebelmouse-image 18978774 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

3D Doritos

PSA - It has been brought to my attention that you can buy these on eBay for pretty cheap!!

IT'S NOT THE SAME!

[rebelmouse-image 18978775 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Fried apple pies from McDonalds. Forget this baked crap.

MAY I SUGGEST A MENU?

[rebelmouse-image 18978776 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Just going to list my Taco Bell wishes:

Baja Sauce

Spicy chicken crunchwrap

Volcano sauce

Diet Baja Blast (it existed for like 2 seconds, I swear to God)

Chicken Flatbreads

Beefy Crunch Burrito with the hot fritos

That's just off the top of my head. All of those are better than trying to make any deep-fried chicken concoction they keep offering, which is all they seem to be doing these days.

WHO Y0U GONNA CALL?

Ecto-cooler

when they did the special rollout of it for the new ghostbusters i was able to snag a few cases at kroger. but it was all i found. it was just as delicious as i remember it being. i want more.

IF THE SHOE FITS...

[rebelmouse-image 18978778 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I finally found running shoes I like, and they stopped making them.

Then I found running shoes I like, and they stopped making them.

Then I found running shoes I really like, and they stopped making them, and nobody even makes anything even _close_to them.

The annoying thing is they still make walking shoes that are practically the same but with no padding, and they make those running shoes in women's sizes!

LONG LIVE LIME!

[rebelmouse-image 18978779 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Lime skittles. i am aware of orchard, and the current limited editio_"long lost lime." frankenstein bags and limited editions are a stopgap measure.

i am located in the US - i know that most of the world still has lime.

what i really meant is "the Original' skittles package containing the flavors i grew up with - lime, lemon, orange, strawberry and grape, the lineup prior to 2013 when lime was replaced by green apple"

Although i would probably prefer black currant to grape - clearly i need to take a UK confectionery vacation.

With millennials now reaching their thirties and forties, many are looking back on the childhood they had compared to the ones they're witnessing now.

With technology advances and a constant need to impress, these two worlds of childhood are undeniably different.

Now that pandemic protocols have been lifted for the most part, inexperienced travelers should take advantage of the time to visit places they've always wanted to see or dreamed of seeing in lockdown.

Unfortunately, a myriad of excuses can delay one's inclination to wanderlust–including a lack of finances and a fear of the unknown.

But thankfully, Reddit is here to prove it can be a great resource for travel information that isn't generally known to the public.

History is made on a daily basis.

Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.
