25 Snacks From Your Aussie Childhood That Are Sadly No Longer Available

How am I meant to survive summer without a Sunnyboy?!?!

1. Sunnyboy

If there was one thing that defined your summer holidays, it was hopelessly trying to slurp a Sunnyboy without it melting all over your fingers. A sustained reduction in demand however, led to these iconic ice blocks being pulled from Aussie shelves in 2016. RIP. 😥

3. In A Biskit Dixie Drumstix and Big Cheese,

A much-loved lunch favourite, the In A Biskit range was so good that you could easily polish off a box in one sitting.


5. Incredibites


OH MAN. Nothing, and I repeat NOTHING, was better than opening up your lunch box to a packet of Incredibites. They were these crispy pockets filled with chocolate and hazelnut. Delicious.

6. Doritos 3D

So much better than regular Doritos especially in terms of the crunch factor. They were also incredibly easy to binge because it felt like you were just eating cheese-flavoured air.

7. Bertie Beetles

Kids these days will most likely associate these chocos with the $2 showbags at the Easter Show. But in reality, Bertie Beetles used to be as common as Freddo Frogs and Caramello Koalas.


8. Vice Versas

Nestle / Via

Vice Versas were these perfect, button-shaped pieces coated in a mixture of white and milk chocolate. And while they're technically still available in the UK, they have yet to reappear on Australian soil. *Shakes fist*.


13. Strawberry Dunkaroos


Yeah, yeah. We all know that the choc hazelnut flavour is still available, but the strawberry one has vanished. What's with companies and removing strawberry flavours?!

15. Bisc & Bars

There was no way that these had any nutritional value whatsoever. But for some reason your mum bought them for your school lunches anyway?! And they also came in a bunch of different flavours like Mars and Twix.


18. Paddle Pop Frozen Thick Shake and Mud Puddle

Aw, remember these bad boys? They were the highlight of every school canteen. The Thick Shake was a treat compared to the usual Paddle Pop, while the Mud Puddle combined two of your fave ice creams flavours.


21. Fruity Bix Bars

If you didn't have time for your usual Weet-Bix in the morning, these Fruity Bix Bars were the next best thing. Covered in yogurt and little bits of dried fruit, they made the perfect snack.

24. McCain Potato Smiles

If there was ever a snack food worthy of resurrection, this would be it. Delicious, golden potatoes that were an iconic staple of every Aussie kid's childhood. Bring them back, McCain Australia!
