One inevitable truth in life is that time goes by, seasons change, and your favorite food items silently disappear from grocery store shelves, leaving you a little heartbroken and a lot confused.

Unfortunately, we can’t (yet! ) time travel our way back to those carefree childhood days when we devoured sugary cereal and crunchy cheesy goodies like there’s no tomorrow.

"What Discontinued Thing Do You Really Want Brought Back?" (30 Answers) Deep fried McDonald’s apple pie. The one from the 1980’s to 1990’s. The one that was crispy and the temperature of molten plutonium inside. That s**t was the best.

Jelly jar juice glasses. In the 1980s and maybe early 90s, my family acquired a few sets: dinosaurs, plus Tom and Jerry. They were the perfect size for kids to use and the different designs helped us keep track of whose had been whose. (Mine was the pterodactyl. ) I don’t know why they stopped being made. Seems like Pokémon and Star Wars would be great co-branding opportunities.

Edit: Apparently I’m not the only one. Let’s start a letter writing campaign to Welch’s!

"What Discontinued Thing Do You Really Want Brought Back?" (30 Answers) Butterfinger. It isn’t discontinued but I wish Ferrero would go back to the original Nestle recipe. It tastes like I dropped a butterfinger in a pile of sawdust and let it sit there until it expired and then ate it. No similar product can really compare to the original Butterfinger.

"What Discontinued Thing Do You Really Want Brought Back?" (30 Answers) I’m not really into Dr . Pepper, but the Berries & Cream Dr . Pepper had a chokehold on me that no other soda has ever had.

Also smoothie skittles, and lime skittles.

This is obscure, but Pepperidge Farm made salad croutons that were absolutely amazing. Perfectly flavored. Perfectly crunchy. Nothing else compares.

"What Discontinued Thing Do You Really Want Brought Back?" (30 Answers) HERSHEY’S CHOCOLATE MILK POWDER!!! The flavor and the texture of the powder were like no other chocolate milk in the history of mankind. It was so delicious that our family’s main method of consuming it was to barely dip a shallow spoonful of the powder into milk, scoop up the barely dissolved milky powder, and eat it straight. Hershey’s discontinued it in favor of their chocolate syrup, which was the worst decision ever made by a corporation. I would do anything to get it back.
