These Are the Discontinued Foods Americans Miss the Most

When it comes to snacking, everyone has their favorite chip or cookie, but what happens if a company stops making that treat. Well, that has certainly happened to a lot of people, and there’s no doubt those folks have a hard time getting over the loss of their favorite snack.

A new report by 24/7 Tempo reveals the Top 40 discontinued snacks and candies Americans miss the most, and it’s bound to make some people feel nostalgic for yummier snacking times.

Among the snacks making the list (click here for the complete list):

·Doritos 3D – Instead of a flat triangle, these were cone-shaped and came in a variety of flavors including Nacho Cheesier, Zesty Ranch and more. (meh. They messed with an already perfect snack with this one.)

·Altoids Sours – These "curiously strong" hard candies came in five flavors - raspberry, lime, tangerine, apple, and mango.

·Butterfinger BBs – Basically Butterfinger flavor in the size of a marble.

·Hershey’s Bar-None - A chocolate wafer with peanuts and a chocolate filling, all enclosed in more chocolate.

·Magic Middles – Keebler cookies with treats in the middle. They were reportedly phased out so the company could use the equipment for another item.

·Tato Skins – You know... potato skins made into chips, in flavors like Cheddar Cheese n’ Bacon and Sour Cream n’ Chives. (Because obesity and hardened arteries don't happen by accident. Tato Skins were a good start to help you on your way.)

·Reggie Bars – Named after Yankees slugger Reggie Jackson, these disappeared after Jackson left the Yankees in 1982. (As a die hard Red Sox fan, I hated Reggie as a player so I'm ashamed to say I actually liked these.)

·Reese’s Peanut Butter & Banana Crème Cups – These were inspired by Elvis’ favorite sandwich, peanut butter and bananas.

·Oreo Cakesters – Basically, they replaced the chocolate cookie in the Oreo with chocolate sponge cake-like discs. (They tasted good, but again...don't mess with perfection.)

·Jell-O Pudding Pops – Why eat pudding in a cup when you can have it frozen on a stick in chocolate, vanilla and banana. (Bill Cosby was their spokesperson. They were marketed as wholesome and healthy...just because they were made with milk. And nothing says "Wholesome" like a convicted rapist as spokesman.)
