B&BW's Dancing Waters.  They had the shower gel and body lotion at the crazy June sale, but they no longer have any of the EDT or body mist.

Clairol's original Herbal Essence Shampoo.  Vermont Country Store makes their own version but at $15 I'm not biting until I get a paycheck.

Yves Rocher's Mint Shower Gel.  I have a stockpile but when that's gone I hope someone else comes up with something similar.  I think they're also phasing out their Orange Blossom.   :'(

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

Skippy Honey Roast peanut butter.

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.

I am extremely jealous of you now.

When I was growing up we lived near an Italian bakery - actually, near like 10 Italian bakeries, it was Jersey after all - but this one had a whole selection of miniature Italian parties - not just a couple of cannoli and Napoleans, no sir, a full bakery case of different pasties.  They. Were. Awesome.  Beyond words.  I miss them.

Where I live now the natives (some of them anyway) seem to think the bakeries in grocery stores are the same thing - it took quite some time to convince my native DH that this may be a cookie, but it is not a Bakery Cookie unless it comes from a bakery that does not also sell lettuce.  Preferably one that uses white boxes tied up with red and white string from a loop in the ceiling.  He finally got it :)

Oooh. I feel for you.  I live in Jersey, and quite close to one that has just that.  Mine doesn't use the red and white string, but tapes the boxes, but the taste is the same.

I think that is one of the most profound things I have ever read! I couldn't agree more!

And I miss Jell-O Pudding Pops.

Maypo in the red box.  The stuff in the blue box is whole wheat and tastes like something other than Maypo.  Paste perhaps?

I WANT MY MAYPO!!! :P

Stouffer's French Bread Pizza.

Clairol Hydrience Hair Colour.

The deep-fried apple pie at McDonald*s.  (They still had it in Mexico and in Spain the last time I went and I wonder if they still do... might be worth a trip! ;D)

Dryad deodorant.
Tickle deodorant ("with the big wide ball!")  Looking back on it now, wow...that marketing!

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.

I have tried  the Utz.  They are  good, but we just moved and I can't get them here either.  It's really very sad.  I bought my first bag of Cheetos in years last week.  Boy was I disappointed.

Appian Way pizza.  They sold a mix for the dough and sauce in the same box and we LOVED the pizza.   SOOO good.  Grocery store stopped carrying it and you can't even find the company on the internet anymore (except for their Facebook page which hasn't been updated in 3-4 years).   I found a few boxes on Amazon but am wary about buying them as I don't know the expiration dates those have.
