    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.

    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....
