Default They Don't Make It Anymore. . . Defunct Foods You Miss

There are some foods I recall loving as a kid, that for some reason I can no longer find. The ones that spring to mind immediately are Buittoni canned ravioli (much more flavorful than the Chef Boy-Ar-De variety), and their toaster pizzas. These kind of looked like an uncut English muffin, and you cooked them in a toaster. They were filled with a delectable mix of sauce & cheese. ONe of my favorite snack/weekend lunchtime foods as a kid. Jeno's also used to make this thing, it was like a foil tray with mini pizzas on it; cheese, pepperoni & sausage. Jeno's is still around, but I haven't seen one of these things in years. Great watching TV snack.

In 1987 I was at a party at a friend's house, and he had a couple bags of sour cream & bacon chips from Herr's. They were INCREDIBLE. Best fucking flavored chips EVER! I found them again a few months later at the CVS across the Mall from the bookstore where I worked, and I must have bought 4 bags or so at one time before they ran out (which was almost instantly). I haven't seen these since, either. But I continue to look every time I see a Herr's display, just hoping. . .

ANyone else mourning the loss of a former favorite food?

I just miss Herr's in general. Can't get 'em out here. It makes me sad.

I can't think of anything that is totally gone, more of a "I miss the original recipe/formula for Product X". Namely Honey Nut Cheerios. I don't know what they changed or when they did it, but they're not the same as when I was a kid. I call shenanigans on General Mills.

Ditto Trix. Ever since they changed from the spheres to the fruit-shaped things, they've never been the same. Or as good.

I miss a lot of local stuff from back in Atlantic City. If you're from NJ and/or Philly (I'm looking at you, Tim and Iggy!) - I miss Tasty Kakes (this awesome brand of cookies and cupcakes out of Philadelphia)! Their Butterscotch Krimpets were the best in the world! Plus, every year near Christmas - usually right after Thanksgiving - they used to have these small tubs of butter cookies that ROCKED! They were shaped like snowflakes, and sprinkled with red and green sugar sprinkles, and were loaded with butter - you could actually see the butter stains on the bottom of the cardboard tub they came in.

I also miss Conte Luna pasta - really really good supermarket pasta, never got mushy, only found in south NJ and Philly.

There was this local brand of coffee in Atlantic City called Ireland Coffee - it was sold only to hotels and restaurants, so you couldn't get it in the stores. But they had their factory in Atlantic City, with a small shop attached. So if you were so inclined, you could go to the Ireland Coffee factory store and buy it directly from them. SUCH good coffee!

So those are what I miss from back home. My Dad used to send me care packages up at college and load me up with Conte Luna and Ireland coffee - I used to love getting goodies from him!

It's the rainbow of fast food delight. You chase it and hope for its return. One day, you are rewarded.

Don't go chasing ribby waterfalls, let it come to you.

You have no have no idea how perfect this thread is for Rob. There are so many times when we are at the store and he says "Why do they always stop carrying the things that I love?"

MMMM, I do miss the Krimpets. I used to live out there and now two of my sisters live on the east coast, so whenever they come to visit I make them bring me Tasty Kakes. Nathan doesn't get it. You can buy them online, but you have to buy by the case. So unless you have a very large freezer, it's a no go.

GODDAMN CRYSTAL PEPSI.

I drank that shit by the gallon as a kid. I loved it. I found an old sealed can of it a few years ago when moving, and I was tempted to crack it open.

Steak finger basket at Sonic. Sonic made the best damn chicken fried steak basket. Delicious. Then they just stopped serving it. Only the chicken basket now. I can taste those tiny chicken fried steak morsels now.

Girl, you're from my neck of the woods! I know, we've been shut out of the krimpet goodness. And here's the thing - you can't really freeze them, because it changes them. The spongecake part gets mushy after it thaws, and the butterscotch frosting gets all runny. They're wrecked after the freezer, you have to find them fresh.

Vin, I'm sorry, I keep forgetting you're a Philly boy! My brother loved the peanut butter kandy cakes! He would eat a whole pack of them in two seconds when my mom would bring them home.

I'm embarrassed to admit this - but the last time I had Butterscotch Krimpets was 2006 - my dad was in the hospital in Philly for heart surgery. So while we were sitting in the waiting area, waiting for him to come out, I went to the vending machines - and lo and behold! Butterscotch Krimpets behind the glass! I waste no time in buying a pack, and then, scooted back to my sister, all "Hey, look! Butterscotch Krimpets!" And then I immediately went, "Yeah, I know, I suck, I'm a bad daughter - dad's in surgery, and I'm all excited to find my favorite Tasty Kake." And she goes, "Yeah, but I'll take one anyway, I haven't had one of those in years." (And yes, Dad came through the surgery fine, so there wasn't a lot of residual guilt afterward.)
