    For me Surge I loved that soda too bad it was Discontinued in 2003 In USA.

    There is plenty of stuff that is hard to get (in general or because it is not available in this country) but actually discontinued is surprising hard.

    Oreo O's, a cereal based on oreo cookies. I normally do not go in for sugar laden cereal but those I liked.

    I used to like these little candies called Tart'N'Tiny's. I haven't seen them in ages. They were my favorite candy for when I was in school because they were small enough to be swallowed whole if the teacher got suspicious. They came in a box that made a lot of noise, so I would dump them in my shirt pocket and munch on them all day long.

    I just tried to look up Tart and Tiny (I SWEAR that was the name of them) and all that came up was some candy that looks NOTHING like the ones I remember. The ones I'm talking about were very small....maybe 5mm tall and barrel shaped. They were basically SweetTarts but teeny. I loved those damn things.

    Waffle Crisp was my favorite cereal. I think they still might make it but I haven't seen it in so damn long.

    Orbitz were pretty good. I got it one time when I was really young and I remembered I liked it. But a lot of people didn't lol.

    I know which candy you speak of, they were one of my favs as well [​IMG]

    For me tho, my fondest memories are of Vanilla Coke (I'm not sure if this is actually discontinued worldwide, but I cannot find it anywhere here [​IMG]) and Mini Eggos.

    Edit: I do believe that these are the candy that you are so fond of Rayder [​IMG]

    I heard they discontinued it because it had waaaaaaaay to much caffeine.

    Black Guinness with blackcurrant. I know they still sell'em and all but they're hard and expensive to get down here in Spain.

    Those are very similar, but the ones I remember didn't have the glazing on them. They were exactly like SweetTarts, only small. Of course, I was in school over 20 years ago.

    When Nestle bought the rights to the candy, they added the coating. They aren't exactly the same but they are the one's I remember. I would have been 3 when the older ones were around.

    Was Orbitz really good? I thought the tiny things in it would make me choke.

    I just had Dunkaroos a few months ago, are they really discontinued?

    [​IMG]
    Also, Pepsi Blue was awesome, but I didn't get the chance to drink very much of it before it got discontinued....
