Sugar Twin.  The saccharin sugar substitute.  It tastes more like sugar to me than any of the other sweeteners.  I usually buy 3 or 4 boxes of 100 a couple times a year, then carry a supply with me everywhere.  I went to the store last Monday and not only were there no boxes of Sugar Twin on the shelf, there wasn't even a shelf tag to show where the boxes are supposed to go.  I checked out two other stores that used to carry Sugar Twin and they stopped carrying it months ago.  I wonder if it was a product recall or if they simply went out of business.

Planters Cheese curls and balls in the  blue can.   They disappeared about fifteen years ago.  Sometimes I still get the crave. 

Chocodials.  Basically Twinkies covered in chocolate.  So miss them.  Haven't found anything quite the same.

have you tried Utz cheese balls?  Almost the the same.  My BFF in college and I would eat the Planter's cheeze balls while drinking fuzzy navels and watch LA Law.  Blech. I shudder at the combo now.

The flavored Pringles are too strong and "powdery" now.  I just like a hint of flavor.

Frankenberry cereal.  Oh, it's been so long since we parted but I'm still sad :'(.

Skippy Honey Roast peanut butter.

Pine Brother cough drops.  Man, I miss those things.  I still think about them all the time.  They were so good.
I just saw these today at CVS.  Check out their site, [size=78%]http://pinebrothers.com/[/size][size=78%]  [/size]

Yeah, I was gonna say, I "like" Pine Bros on Facebook, and was pretty sure they had cough drops...looks like they're making a comeback.

Not a brand, but a product...I miss fresh, bakery-hot donuts, like Krispy Kreme or just from a good bakery. The only donuts we can get around here are from the grocery or convenience store. I love me a nice, light donut filled with cream cheese filling (there's one by my parents, so good) or a hot, freshly made glazed donut.  :(

Target used to have this store brand of the most comfortable bras I've ever worn. They were soft and fit perfectly...now they've added a push-up and got rid of the comfy kind. I don't need to push my nunnies up to my neck just to be supported.

The chocolate scented candles from Yankee.

My old '98 Jeep Cherokee. It died in an accident and the new Jeeps are too curvy.
Sell crazy somewhere else, we're all stocked up here.

Bath and Body Works had a line of scented products called something like "ginger spice" -- candles, lotion, body wash. I loved that scent, not too flowery, not too musky. They discontinued the whole line. That's the only product in my life I can remember actually filling out a customer comments card to try to get them to bring it back. According to the clerk, I wasn't the only one sad. They now have other ginger scents (White Tea & Ginger and Orange Ginger) but they're not the same.  :'(

Aveda lipstick in "Sheer Camilla" - the perfect shade for me

Marathon candy bars (remember the ruler printed on the package?)   This is not the Marathon bar that was sold in the UK, which was like a US Snickers bar.  The US Marathon was similar to the UK Curly Wurly (but way better  :) )

The daily moisturizers are too numerous to list.  It seems that whenever I find one that works for me, it gets discontinued.  Almay made a great one several years ago that got discontinued and replaced by their "milk" line.  Recently Aveeno discontinued their Ultra Calming SPF 30, and the 15 is a totally different product.

Surge.

I used to drink tons of it, and spent the first summer or two it was out winning a ton of free bottles from the caps. I even have a fisherman's cap with the logo!

The closest thing I found was when Mt Dew had a green lime-flavored version during the contest to pick a new flavor. I was sad when it lost.

We can get Booberry and Frankenberry cereal in October. I stock up for the year (seriously, I bought 24 boxes last year); I just brought out my last two boxes this morning.

LazyDaisy, I loved their Storm Watch candle. Then they discontinued it.  >:(  I've heard they might have brought it back, but I haven't been in one of the stores in a while ...

Nestle's Alpine White candy bar with almonds. Yuuummmyyy.

Wegman's (local grocery store chain) lychee green iced tea. I drank it all last summer; I was downright addicted to it. I hoped they'd just phased it out for the winter, but noooo ... it's gone altogether. :(  I absolutely loved the stuff.

Dr. George's Cough Syrup - My pediatrician had his own formula of cough syrup. No flavorings, no colorings but that stuff worked.


I can't remember the name but this stuff we used to soak my hands and feet in when I got secondary infections from the skin condition breaking my skin down. I could really use it right now.
