Do you ever wonder why some of your favourite childhood snacks have disappeared?
Well, it’s more than likely that they’ve been discontinued due to poor sales or just generally got a little outdated. But here’s a reminder of some classics and how good they were.
The strangely titled flavours of Silly Billy Strawberry, Chucklin’ Cherry and Grumpy Grape were around from the 1980’s until 2001. Weirdly, I can still remember them and they were excellent.
Cinamon Tic Tacs
To be honest, these weren’t the tastiest and I’m glad they aren’t around anymore, but some people did like them and they continue to sell in the US.
In the early 2000’s Doritos made an attempt to be futuristic and introduced their ‘3D’ crisps. But they were soon whipped away from us and are now discontinued.
He Man Jellies
Impossible to get out the wrapper, but when you finally did, they were pretty tasty.
Dream Chocolate Bars
Cadbury introduced the white chocolate bars in 2002 and were put into the Heroes selection boxes, but as everyone was dodging them they are no longer available.
A lime flavoured sweet version of everyone’s favourite mints was once a thing, but now they are completely unheard of. I’d like to try them.
The creamy, fruity sweet that was the youthful version of a Werther’s Original are no longer a thing in the UK, but apparently Tesco are getting them shipped into their foreign food aisle.
Didn’t everyone have these in their lunchboxes? I’m gutted they’re not around anymore.
Kit Kat Senses
Girls Aloud – for some reason – once brought out their own range of the chocolate called Kit Kat Sense, they didn’t taste that much different to a Kinders Bueno.
Nostalgia is good. Can you think of any more?
