Oops, forgot one... Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Lotion. It just disappeared one day and I have no idea what happened to it  >:(
My inner (r-word) is having a field day with this one.

Last year, I bought the Febreze battery-operated luminaries that used scented squares of paper.  Now I can't find the squares anywhere and I have 5 of those stupid luminaries.

Amazon and a few other places come up in a Google search, might be worth stocking up on them as they aren't on Febreze's website any more!

the Cheerios version with dried Strawberries in it. I loved it and now I can't get it anymore :( the mixed berry one is just not the same.

Pro-Stars cereal.  I remember it from when I was a kid.  It had Wayne Gretzky on the box.

Shower soothers. They are these tablets you'd put on the floor of the shower. The water and steam would release the stuff you'd breathe in to help clear congestion. Can't find them anywhere local now.

I had never heard of these, so I went looking online, and you can also make sometime similar, if you're so inclined.

I found that too after seeing the privateer prices on Amazon!  I think i will try that.

As recently as a year ago, CVS still carried their house brand of these.  I picked some up in Florida on vacation (with a lovely head cold - awesome).  CVS has just recently moved in to my area, so I haven't had a chance to see if they still do.


ETA - They do!  At least on their website - http://www.cvs.com/shop/product-detail/CVS-Shower-Reliever-Effervescent-Vapor-Tablets?skuId=415988  only $3.99 for a box of 3 tablets.

Someone up thread mentioned LifeSavers. When I was in Junior High School 25 years ago (gasp!) they had root beer flavored LifeSavers. They actually tasted like real root beer. I loved those!!! If anyone has seen those sold in any of those old time candy stores, or outside of the US, I might actually have to visit you.

I remember when I could get a whole roll of my favorite flavor, wild cherry Life Savers.  Maybe your root beer Life Savers are with my cherry Live Savers.  *sigh*

Along with the butter rum and butter cream (creme?) ones.

And Choc-o-Mint.  Those were my favorite.

I saw Wild Cherry Lifesavers at the 7-11 a couple of days ago. Also Amazon has Wild Cherry and butter rum ones. http://www.amazon.com/Lifesavers-Rolls-Wild-Cherry-rolls/dp/B000GBXIOI

Tide Lavender and Vanilla Simple Pleasures Laundry detergent- and the matching Downy Lavender and Vanilla Simple Pleasures Fabric Softener. My laundry smelled so good. And the scent lasted in my drawers.

Tide came out with Tide Lavender Touch of Downy. Downy came out with Lavender Serenity and a Spring Lavender.

The products they have rolled out to replace the scent isn't the same- they both replaced it with a Lavender scent, but no vanilla. The vanilla made the scent so nice and warm and comforting.  :'(

Snuggle makes a wild orchid and vanilla scented fabric softener called Exhilaration that smells even better than the Downey.  It makes your laundry smell seriously good and I find that it works just as well as Downey to control static and soften clothes.

I know I'm coming in late on this one, but I see it at Target all the time. Target also makes their own version which I like just as much and costs less.

RIP  Greenies Duck and Pea Pill Pockets for Cats. 

Koa, who is allergic to both chicken and fish among other things, loved them so much, she got duck pill pockets for treats.  The other three cats liked them as well, and of course, they were great for giving Koa her steroid pills when the itching gets too bad.  When I couldn't locate a supply of Duck and Pea pockets even on the Internet, I wrote to the company.  The answer:  despite enthusiastic fans, there simply wasn't enough nationwide demand to continue making Duck and Pea Pockets for cats.  I'm going to try the dog version, assuming it isn't discontinued as well.  I haven't tried the salmon version, but nobody particularly likes the chicken pockets.
