Wow this is my favorite subject of all time! FOOD! Especially food that is no longer made! Why do these corporations that get rich by feeding us tease us like this??? Can someone please tell me? Anyway, I split these up into two categories, grocery store foods and fast foods. Yeah here goes:
Hostess Chocolicous Snack Cakes These things were incredible. They were available around the early 90's but I have longed missed them. They were similar to Devil's Food Cake, but much better-believe me.
Cookies N' Cream Twix/Double Fudge Twix For a while there was a wide variety of Twix flavors and these two newcomers were my favorite. Apparently Mars did not share the same love and decided to ax them. Also during this time Twix came in single bars.
Tastefuls from Jimmy Dean Wow these were available for a short time within the last 5 years, as a competitor for Lunchables. They boasted bigger sandwiches and having more food. Despite this, it failed and Lunchables are still with us. The Jimmy Dean brand now focuses on breakfast foods as well as country sausage.
Superman Peanut Butter Basically it was Peter Pan peanut butter just with Superman on the label.
Hi-C Ecto Cooler Can't believe no one has brought this up yet...
[/b]Fast FoodThe McHero (also known as The Hero Sandwich) This was truly the greatest invention that McDonald's has ever came up with besides the McRib. It was three beef patties, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and mayo all on a hoagie bun. It came out as a promotion for the 1995 film "Batman Forever" whenever I think of that movie I think of three things 1.Jim Carrey's Riddler 2.Robin's costume is lame and 3.This sandwich
The Wild Mountain Chicken Sandwich Wendy's came up with both The Wild Mountain Chicken Sandwich and The Wild Mountain Cheeseburger during a brief run in 2004. The chicken sandwich was incredible, but has since disappeared.
Treatzza Pizza Dairy Queen came up with this short lived item during it's Hot Eats, Cool Treats Era in the 90's. They were essentially cookie crust with DQ soft serve on top, then were given your choice of toppings similar to those found in a Blizzard. I'm sure the only actual one in commercials had M & M's.
Mini Macs McDonald's had this as a premiere item in it's then new Dollar Menu in 1999-2000. It was basically a Big Mac sandwich minus the second beef patty and the middle bun. Honestly McDonald's can still make these but choose not to.
McDonald's original Apple Pie Prior to baking the Apple Pies, McDonald's offered one that was deep fried making it resemble an egg roll on the outside. Many other fast food chains have fried pies such as KFC. There are still McDonald's that sell fried pies.
Hardee's Pizza Pocket This was available for a very short time, but essentially was a Pizza Hot Pocket sold at Hardee's. It was slightly bigger and resembled a Quesadilla on the outside.
KFC Zinger Chicken Sandwich During the early 2000's KFC began a line of chicken sandwiches, and this was the best one. It was three strips of Colonel Strips with spicy sauce. Apparently the sauce must have been too expensive for KFC to produce. Heh, heh.
The Spicy Tendercrisp Chicken Sandwich Burger King came up with this to go along with the default Tendercrisp Chicken Sandwich. It had a spicy sauce similar to the KFC Zinger.
The Big King Burger King's clone of McDonald's Big Mac. It had two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, onions, pickles, and no middle bun. They were flame-broiled, and were only 99 cents. They lasted about 2 years, but come on, everyone knows that Big Mac's nemesis is The Whopper!
Well that is all I can think of for now...Man I am getting very hungry...
