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.

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.

Squeeze-Its

 
 

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.

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.
