    The title says it all.

    I'll start.

    -Cheetos Xs & Os. (I thought these were better than the regular ones)

    -3D doritos.

    -Ecto cooler.

    -Mcrib. (Technically this isn't discontinued, but I wish it was on the menu full time)

    That's all I've got for now. (I'd add crunchy M&Ms but the pretzel ones have that covered)

    White Smarties, gold Wispa bars.

    Edit: Actually, can we get Smarties back in circular cylindrical tubes with a plastic cap please? The all-card hexagonal cylinders don't feel right. Stackability be damned.

    Can't think of any specific foods right now but I do miss Vanilla Coke and Pepsi Cino.
    It's been a long time since I've bought Smarties - does this new tube mean people can no longer squeeze it to fire off the plastic cap? Is there even still a separate plastic cap?

    Do drinks count?

    If so, Vanilla Coke and Lime Coke.

    Ugh, I work for Trader Joe's and the concept of discontinued food is one of the most aggravating parts of the job...

    Smarties bars. Not sure if they're totally discontinued, but I can't find them anywhere.

    -Cocoa Frosted Flakes. This was some good shit.

    -Tyson mild, already-breaded chicken wings. Yeah, they quit making the mild (or the retailers in my area quit ordering them), but for some reason, people love the hell out of the spicy ones. I tried them and nearly set my mouth on fire. That's why I think so many people in my area love spicy food - they've burned the nerves out of their mouths.

    -If drinks count, I want Crystal Pepsi to come back just so I can try it. ;)

    New Coke. I always wanted to try it, but never could, seeing as though it was made and discontinued four years before I was born.

    I wouldn't call it discontinued food, but I would like to see Halloween candy all year round.

    Oh, Sonic had the Valentine Sweet Heart, its similar to the Blizzard, it was so good.

    I know it'll be back eventually but, as of now, KFC doesn't have the double down (at least not where I live). It's come and gone so many times I'm developing abandonment issues.

    Pokemon cereal.

    Oh, and Thomas the Tank Engine toaster pastries. Seems like they were only around for a few months when I was really young. I think they were apple and cinnamon flavored.

    Anyway, they were really good and I can't even find a picture of the box, just forum threads with people who also remember them.

    I'm sure Pillsbury makes the same thing just not a licensed product but it isnt the same damnit.
