Was just searching around on the internet and found this

It's a list of great snacks they used to sell in the US in the 90s or so that have since been discontinued. My favourites were the Planters PB Crisps, they were delicious.

So what snacks or drinks or foods do you miss that you used to eat but aren't sold anymore?

Basset's Sherbet Fountain.

A cardboard tube filled with a sour-sweet fizzy powder that came with a liquorice straw to suck it up. If you blew down the straw you got your face covered in the powder.

Just checked the internet and they are still available in the UK it seems. Now in a plastic tube, because if the old cardboard ones got damp, the powder clumped and blocked the straw. And in Britain that was like, all the time.
