Pringles stix. Loved these single-serving sleeves of pocky-like cracker sticks in the honey-butter flavour, and only 60 calories a pack. Went looking to restock recently and they seem to be discontinued. Well, there goes my diet-friendly but satisfying movie theatre snack.

Also, Pure Protein Crunch. Little crunchy snacks that tasted like cocoa puffs but with 10g protein a serving. Delicious, and sadly also seem to be discontinued.

Hostess was bought by Lays a long time ago, but brought back for a short time in the early 2000's
Also gone: Humpty Dumpty potato chips...bought by a few different companies since they vanished. (small fry, Old dutch, etc)

Hostess is still available as Hickory sticks today (reason unknown)

Weren't those the ones mixed in with a bunch of other Peak freans cookies in an "assorted tea" variety pack?
I thought they were still available today?

Not dissapointed per say but juicy fruit gum used to be so good, lasted so long. The ones they make now are really bad.

You can still buy the PF assorted tea pack but it doesn't have the Nice cookies in them anymore.

There is a British brand called Crawford's that makes a Nice cookies dupe: International aisle, Walmart.

My Mom worked at Peak Freans when I was a kid and she used to come home smelling like cookies, lol. Every Friday, she would bring home with like 4 boxes of broken cookies, good times, good times.
