It’s always a shame when a beloved food item gets discontinued — in the world of snacks, it seems that only the good die young. Earlier this year, a limited re-release of popular 90s soft drink surge caused something of a sensation on the internet; here are 15 more examples of treats from yesteryear that you’ll wish never left us.
1. Butterfinger BB’s
Like many snack spin-offs, Butterfinger BB’s weren’t long for this world.
2. Sierra Mist Undercover Orange
Released in conjunction with Get Smart, this soda was probably better than the movie.
3. Doritos 3Ds
How did being 3D make these taste better? No one really knows; it just did.
4. Sprite Remix
Tropical and Aruba Jam were fine flavors, but Berry Clear was clearly the top dog when it comes to Sprite Remix.
5. Doritos Late Night
Inspired by post-drinking take-out, these limited edition Doritos are sorely missed.
6. Snapple Go Bananas
This one has all the makings of a classic Snapple flavor, but for some reason remains unavailable to most.
7. Twix Java
Outdone by its clearly inferior sibling the PB Twix, this innovative biscuit bar doubles up as your morning coffee.
8. Waffle Crisp
One of many missed cereals, Waffle Crisp was perhaps undone by its terrifying, bug-eyed mascot.
9. Red Fusion Dr Pepper
A rare alternate flavor for Dr Pepper, this cherry variant deserved much more than its one-year lifespan.
10. Mango Sours Altoids
This fruity treat was truly an Altoid for the ages — shame it didn’t last longer.
11. P.B. Crisps
P.B. Crisps were an afternoon favorite for many growing up, and recently several campaigns have been launched to get this discontinued food product back on shelves.
Still available internationally, American eaters are unable to enjoy the delights of this sturdy dessert.
13. Crystal Pepsi
Transparent cola is a gimmick so ’90s that it hurts, but who wouldn’t buy into it again if it were re-released?
14. French Toast Crunch
The obvious next step for Cinnamon Toast Crunch, this breakfast option gave you all the taste of French Toast with all the ease of a bowl of cereal.
15. McDonalds Pizza
Remember when McDonalds served pizza? What a world to live in.
