1. French Toast Crunch
Although French Toast Crunch was discontinued in the U.S. in 2006, it is still being actively distributed and sold in Canada. Why it hasn’t been smuggled across the border and sold in the black market is beyond me.
2. Dannon Sprinkl’ins
When this product hit the market in the early 90s, Dannon told the New York Times that Sprinkl’ins were going to create a “new generation of yogurt eaters.” $43.9 million dollars later in annual revenue indicated that they were right.
“I’m sorry but would you like some yogurt with those sprinkles?”
3. Hi-C Ecto Cooler
Children all around the world weeped when the Hi-C Ecto Cooler was discontinued in 2001.
The best part of these drinks were the twist off caps. The second best part of these drinks were the 26.3 grams of pure liquid sugar.
5. Mickey’s Parade Ice Pops
These Disney ice pops were the pinnacle of flavor, form and function until they were unjustly snatched from the hands of children in the early 2000s. You can’t even buy them on eBay anymore. Cruel world.
Betty Crocker severely scaled back production of Dunkaroos in the 2000s, making them almost impossible to find. If you’re lucky enough to find a box of these frosted dream packs, dunk safely my friends. Dunk safely.
7. Altoids Sours
All flavors of Altoids Sours were discontinued in 2010, killing the hopes and dreams of 90s kids everywhere.
8. Crispy M&Ms
Since 2005, these highly addictive chocolate crispies became only available in certain European countries.
The Wonder Ball was a spherical chocolate ball that contained little pieces of magic inside until 2004 when it was acquired by a new company.
RIP Wonder Ball, you will never be forgotten.
10. Butterfinger BB’s
These heavenly chocolate peanut butter balls were discontinued in 2006 but later brought back as Butterfinger Mini Bites, the not-as-good and less exciting version of the original.
11. Oreo O’s
Oreo O’s was a breakfast staple for 90s kids until they were tragically removed from American shelves in 2007.
12. Planters Cheez Balls
The discontinuation of Planters Cheez Balls was the most tragic disappearance of all the 90s snacks. In fact, there was such public outrage over the shortage of cheese balls that 90s kids everywhere have banned together to write a petition.
If you too have suffered from sporadic shakes, sleep apnea, or other health problems due to the lack of cheese ball consumption, I invite you to sign the petition to bring Planters Cheez Balls back to American shelves.
