You know you’re starting to get old when a lot of your favorite products disappear.
But you never know when something will make a comeback!
I mean, who could have predicted that Zima would return to us in such a glorious fashion?
Not this guy!
Let’s hear from AskReddit users about things that were discontinued that they want to come back.
Do you remember?
“3D Doritos. The thin and crispy kind that came in a black thermos looking thing. Also asteroids in the same container.
Salsa flavored Doritos. Not salsa verde. Just plain salsa that came in a black/red bag.
Smothered burritos from Taco Bell. They were cheap and tasty AF.”
For your smelly feet.
“KIWI used to make insoles that were made for women’s flats.
They smelled so nice & clean and kept my shoes from getting gross on the inside.
They have since discontinued them around 2014 or so and now the only ones you can sometimes find are powder fresh scent which is awful.”
“Taco Bell used to have a thing called the beefy crunch burrito and it was glorious.
Also, their salsa verde packets.
Get your s**t together Taco Bell.”
Looking for help.
As far as I know it’s been discontinued and I haven’t seen it in stores in over a decade.
Someone please tell me this is wrong though.”
Oh, the memories.
“Altoid Sours! Man, I miss those so much.
Altoid is stupid for not bringing those back. So many brands are getting on the nostalgia train and cashing in.”
It’s just not the same…
The ones they have out now are absolutely not the same.
And they’re all stale.”
The public demands it.
“Keebler Pizza Chips.
There’s even Facebook groups that want it back.
There’s some legal rights bulls**t involving multiple companies so it’ll basically never come back.”
Check out this list!

“Aqua Marine, a perfume that bath and body works used to sell.
That fragrance has been the most evocative, sensory trigger to a time when things felt so much better.
I was so upset when I heard they stopped selling those! If I ever got to smell it again, I would just BATHE IN IT AND SWIM IN THAT NOSTALGIA.”
“Taco Bell’s Double Decker Taco.
It had the perfect balance of crunch and chewiness.
Bring it back!”
“Things that could be repaired.
Most of the stuff from the 60s could be refitted and work like it always does. Stuff today is always covered in proprietary screws, with proprietary plastic paneling or inserts.
When that stuff snaps you just have to chuck it and buy new because the replacement parts cost more than the initial purchase (for a reason I’m sure).”
