Old Discontinued Foods and Drinks - Part 1

A Story by Mr. D

Anyone remember these old snack foods?


Back when I was much bigger in girth than I am now (and I’m still not at the weight I want to be at), there were numerous snack foods they had and got rid of that I absolutely loved. Tell me if you’ve ever heard of or remember some of these items. Or you can simply read and enjoy or not.

PB, Chocolate, & PB&J Crisps �" These little cookies were some of the best snacks in the early 90’s, and disappeared around the middle of that same decade. They were tiny graham cracker cookies in the shape of a boiled peanut with peanut butter, chocolate, or peanut butter and jelly in the middle. As a kid I would eat these things on a regular basis, but they haven’t been around in years. Someone needs to petition Planters and tell them to bring these things back. They were about $2 a bag I think, and boy were they great.

Black Pepper Jack Doritos �" Come on, admit it. You tried these and some of you somewhere liked them. These, IMO, were the best Doritos flavor the company ever put out, and they came back again for a short time sometime I think in ‘08 or ‘09. But they haven’t been around since then, and if you look around the Internet, you can find numerous petitions from the Frito Lay’s company begging and even demanding that they bring these Doritos back. Unfortunately, and I know people will disagree with me here, and that’s fine, they replaced them with the sorry Spicy Sweet Chili brand, which can go die in a hole for all I care. If anyone from the Frito Lay company sees this story, tell the company to get on this or send them a petition.

Smoked Cheddar & Monterey Cheez-Its �" I can’t be the only one out there who liked these amazing crackers, and I can’t also be the only one pissed off that they discontinued them in favor of the inferior Sharp Cheddar & Parmesan variety. The smoky flavor of the cheddar went perfect with the lighter Monterey, and really want to write a letter to the company and ask them what on Earth they were thinking when they got rid of the BEST variety of Cheez-Its ever made. Oh well. C’est la vie. People say you can still buy them in some places, but apparently they don’t have them at all where I live. They may make numerous new varieties, but these will always be the winner to me. Shame on you Kellogg’s. Shame on you.

Cheeseburger Pringles �" Easily, IMO, the BEST variety of Pringles crisps hands down, and they actually taste like a real cheeseburger. I could eat an entire can of these things, and did when I was younger and fatter, by myself. Of course, when I was a teenager, I could eat an entire medium PIZZA by myself, and my weight proved it. I’m happy to say I no longer engorge myself like that anymore, but I digress. These will always be my favorite Pringles, even if they don’t exist anymore. Shame on you, Procter & Gamble and Kellogg’s. You did away with your best flavor.

Doritos Late Night Tacos at Midnight �" Yeah, the funny thing about these tortilla chips is that they do, in fact, taste just like a real Taco Bell taco. You’d be hard pressed to tell me these weren’t one of the best flavors of Doritos you’ve ever had. I think that’s all that needs to be said about these. If you remember them, you either loved them or you didn’t. Or you never had them before and missed out on one of the best snack foods in North America.

Doritos Late Night All-Nighter Cheeseburger �" Another great flavor of Doritos cut down before it could flourish. Or maybe it did flourish and I just wasn’t aware of it. In any case, these Doritos chips were the basic equivalent of the Cheeseburger Pringles, and were just as great as their crisp counterparts. As Mental Floss puts it, they taste like a cheeseburger with a hint of pickle. Truth. If you didn’t try these, you won’t get to. They’re now just a memory.

There are probably many more, but I can’t remember all of them. My memory is deteriorating in my current years. Stay tuned for the drink section in Part 2!
