11 Foods from Your Childhood That Are Extinct Now

Facebook, Pudding Pops

On this Throwback Thursday, I’m thinking back to treats from my childhood I can no longer find!  Why must they go away!  From Planters Cheese Balls to Clearly Canadian,  here are 11 that have gone extinct.


Tan M&M’s



Gone since 1995.


Clearly Canadian



This fizzy beverage went RIP in the late 90’s.  But we hear it might be making a comeback!


Rice Krispies Treat Cereal



Also gone since the early 90’s.


Crystal Pepsi



Probably have to take to eBay to find any of this.  This strange liquid disappeared in 1993.

Jell-O Pudding Pops



This is the biggest crime against humanity.  How do you take one of the world’s most beloved frozen treats EVER and banish it?  Missing them since 2004.







These were a staple around the swimming pool during my youth.  They vanished in 2001.


Doritos 3-D



Before the Taco Bell Tacorito, this was the coolest thing that ever happened to Doritos.  Sadly, we’ve had to settle for 2-D Doritos since 2005.


PB Max



These chocolately-peanut butter wonders have been gone since the early 90’s.




Hi-C Ecto-Cooler



What’s cooler than a radiation green drink named after a slimy character from Ghostbusters?  Noting.  But I haven’t been able to sip on this since 2001.


Planters Cheese Balls



This is what I was snacking on back when I was drinking Squeeze-Its.  I could go through a whole can while playing Nintendo on a hot summer day.  But I haven’t found them since 2006.


Apple Newtons



Forget fig.  These Newtons were the bomb.  Crumbled on vanilla ice cream?  Unbeatable.  But they’ve slowly gone the way of the dinosaur in recent years.
