I was thirsty the other day and I was thinking that I could really go for a Josta (a drink Pepsi made a few years ago) and was a little sad that they weren't made anymore and that got me thinking about other foods that I liked but aren't around anymore.
I miss Mars bars. Sure there's Snickers with almonds now but it's just not quite the same.
When I was a kid there was a sandwich spread called Spreadables. It was chicken salad (or turkey salad or ham salad) that was already made in a can and you just opened it up and make a sandwich with it. No need to chop up the meat and mix with mayo.
There was this one food item where it was something like beef stew or chicken ala king already cooked and put in a plastic pouch. You just put it in a microwave and heat it for a few minutes and have a fresh, hot meal. What was special about it was that you didn't need to keep it in your fridge. You kept it in your cupboard and it could stay there for years without spoiling. Something in the production about irradiating the food after it's cooked and sealed to kill any germs or bacteria that could grow and spoil the food. I think they did a test where they had people eat some chicken, one recently made and one irradiated and sealedmade a few months ago, and the people couldn't taste the difference. I guess once some people found about the the radiation they protested making claims of radiation poisoning and the company took them off the shelf.
I miss fruit-flavored Slice too. I was going to do a experiment and test taste a can of Slice past its freshness date with a brand new can and compare the test but they stopped making it soon after (my sister found the can a year later in the cabinet and drank it and she's still alive to pester me).
What foods do you love that they no longer make?
