Gator Gum and 7 Other Discontinued Snacks That I Wish Were Still Around
3. Pop Qwiz
Remember this? The fluorescent-colored popcorn made by Pop Secret in the '90s? You know, the one that let you guess which color the popcorn would be while it was microwaving? The same one that turned your hands and probably your intestines the most unnaturally bright shade of neon-green? Yeah, that one. I loved that stuff; it was the only cool kind of quiz after second grade, when you no longer got stickers for spelling Pluto correctly (this was back when Pluto was a planet and all was right in the world, of course).
2. Butterfinger BB's
The marble-sized, Bart Simpson-backed predecessors to today's Butterfinger Minis were discontinued in 2006. But Bart's still around, so why aren't his beloved BB's? Is it because not even the marketing department knew what exactly a BB was to begin with? I prefer the little balls to today's miniature bar-shaped candies, but it's mostly because I'm stubborn.
1. Keebler Magic Middles
So you're telling me the Keebler elves took all that time to smuggle melted chocolatey filling out of their own factory to hide inside chocolate chip cookies for us, and this is how we repay them? By discontinuing them?
I miss these cookies dearly, but I'm hoping the Milano Melts that I've been eying in the supermarket but have been willing myself not to buy can eventually fill the chocolate-filled-cookie-size hole in my heart.
What are your favorite discontinued snacks? Is someone really trying to sell Shark Bites for $64.99 on Amazon? Would you pay that? Let us know and make sure to look out for our discontinued Drinks and Fast Food editions in the coming weeks.
