A Continued List of Discontinued Foods/Drinks


Everyone who was an 80s/90s kid had their favorite snack when they were younger. Unfortunately, some of these snacks were discontinued and gone from shelves, only being available in other states. However, it seems like in the past couple years, companies have attempted to revive the 80s and 90s classics. Young adults, here’s a list of discontinued favorites that you may remember from your childhood that you miss or have been brought back:
