They just did a feature on a website called www.hometownfavorites.com.
It's a very cool site where you can order items that are hard to find in your local grocer (remember "Count Chocula and Boo Berries?").
Well, it also has a link to items that are no longer in production. So, even the online resource can no longer get them.
The list includes things like Carnation Breakfast Bars. Remember those? I do.
Anyway, let's take a trip down memory lane.
Who has some of their favorites that are either no longer available or hard to find?
(cakes, candies, dinner mixes....whatever!)
Anyone else remember something that is no longer available?
the charms sweet and sour mix lollipops -- I've been looking for them forever, now I know why I can't find them -- I loved the going from sweet to sour and sour to sweet.
Man -- did betty crocker just throw in the towel on all the baking stuff? I don't do much baking anymore, but BC was always a favored mix brand.
It's kind of strange that chocolate cool whip is on the list -- I almost bought some two days ago, wondering how long it has been in the Superfresh (HAH!) freezer??
Chocolate was good to eat frozen....like a frozen yogurt/ice cream type fix.
Yea, I noticed a lot of Betty Crocker stuff, but surely there is stuff still available.
I haven't looked in that aisle in ages though :)
What I miss and can't find anymore are the carnation breakfast bars...they were not chewy, not really crunchy and had a chocolate or carob coating on the outside with chocolate chips and granola perhaps on the inside.
That is what started my hunt. I remember them I loved them!
My saddest departure was Jello brand frozen pudding pops. A few years ago, Popsicle brand started making them and they were disappointing fakes. They had a specific taste and consistancy before. No, frozen pudding is not the same either.
Puuuuuudding pops. Im writing Bill Cosby!
the fruit filled shredded wheat cereal...does anyone else remember this stuff? they had like blueberry and strawberry. so yummy!
The originals were the best.
sun123, you are right. Lest us not forget Frankenberry, although Count Chocula rules.
3D Doritos! They were so good and they had less fat than regular Doritos!
They were great! I am not sure they are discontinued, but they ARE hard to find.
Also strange for me to watch food network, not being a cook but I sometimes do. The chefs are fun to watch and I admit to getting lulled into those cheesy imformercials where they sell cookware - there just so corny cheery. Anyway, my fav is unwrapped - it is so fascinating to learn history and processes.
Personally I am still feanin' for the Pudding Pops :)
My kids and I love to watch "Unwrapped" and pretty much anything on the food network. We love Elton Brown, sometimes he will come up with something yummy and my kids will have me look up the recipe and make it. We loved the carmel corn...
Also, who ever was looking for the Quaker Graham Oh's , we have them at Albertsons here in my town, they are cheapest cereal on the shelf.
And I love "Unwrapped" as well.
I am the one who mentioned "Oh's!" and cheap is FINE by me :) I just wish I could find them at MY grocer :)
Although I ate them PRE calorie counting, so I am not sure of their nutritional value now :)
edit: I found Quaker's website and they actually have a section for their own 'hard to find' stuff :)
