Do we all have a few favorite snack foods that have been discontinued? As I recently perused the cookie aisle I once again search for the orange package I remember so well. Maybe there was a bring back the Ideal cookie movement I so dearly loved and still miss to this day.
Have my beloved Nabisco Ideal cookie bars been resurrected? Alas, no.
It is a nostalgic trip remembering the foods we loved but are now a cherished memory. No, these are not the healthiest or healthy snacks. But I still miss these discontinued snacks.
My List Of Discontinued Snacks I Miss!
- Ideal cookie bars by Nabisco
- Mr. Salty pretzels (Handi snacks do not count)
- Tan M & M’s
- Fried pies at McD’s
- Planters Cheez balls
- Jumbo block peanut candy
- Carnation Breakfast Bars
The public outcry over the demise of the Planters Cheez Balls could not budge Planters to bring back our cherished cheese ball.
Pop open the can of orange stick to your fingers bursting with cheese flavor puffed balls. Cheese ball lovers still mourn their demise in 2006.
Ideal Peanut Butter and Chocolate Bars
These were slim cookies in the shape of a bar with just the right mix of peanut butter and chocolate. The peanut butter was sandwiched between flaky layers and covered in chocolate. As I recall these bars were quite a treat in our household and disappeared as soon as they entered the kitchen. Miss you!
Mr. Salty Pretzels
Mr. Salty was my favorite brand of pretzels. Salty? yes, but not too salty. Crunchy with just the right amount of crunch and crisp. I’m not a fan of some of today’s brands of pretzels which you need a sledgehammer to consume.
If you are still hankering for a Mr. Salty pretzel Kraft does offer Mr. Salty Handi Snacks. Even these I have a difficult time finding these on the grocery shelves but they are available on Amazon.
