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!!

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...

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

DON'T DOWNGRADE...

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

THE EXTRA SURPRISE!

Cool toys in kids' cereal boxes.

STRAWBERRIES FOREVER!

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!

Flintstones Push Pops!

IT'S HOW I LEARNED TO SPELL...

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!

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!!

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!

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.

SWEET... AND SOUR...

Altoids Mango Sours!

AH THE SWEETS...

Dunk-a-roos.

Liveforever1990

Teddy Grahams and funfetti frosting is totally Dunkaroos childhood nostalgia.

SIGN ME UP!

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!

Fried apple pies from McDonalds. Forget this baked crap.

MAY I SUGGEST A MENU?

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...

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!

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.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
