Sometimes the best things get discontinued for no reason. Have you ever tried any of these now discontinued or hard to find candies?
Garbage Candy Logo
1.) Garbage Can-dy These Garbage Can-dies were quirky and delicious! The package was shaped like little garbage cans and filled with Pez like candies shaped like things you would find in the trashcan; fish bones, shoes, dog toys, and a discarded soda bottle. Garbage Can-dy may be discontinued but we have something just as quirky for you: Sour Flush! Candy powder for dipping comes in a toilet shaped container with a plunger shaped sucker!
2.) BarNone In 1986 Hershey tried to produce a gourmet chocolate bar before there were any gourmet chocolate bars! They tried combining aspects of all their best selling chocolate bars into one; peanuts, carmel, wafers and of course an over load of chocolate. In 1997 it was discontinued although some hope it will some day make a comeback.
Chicken Dinner candy
3.) Chicken Dinner Bar
Fortunately this candy didn’t taste anything like chicken and was only a reference to Herbert Hoover’s presidential campaign- “A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage.” This candy was a chocolate covered nut roll that remained on shelves for almost 40 years before its original manufacturer was taken over by another.
4.) Gator Gum
This gum was introduced in the 1980’s and was popular for only a short time and still has a whole legion of fans behind it. Gator gum was tart, to the point that some consumer’s complained about it hurting their mouths. Unfortunately its shelf life was short lived, along with other drink companies trying to make gum flavors.
tart n tinys
5.) Tart n’ Tiny
In 1980 Tart n’ Tiny by Wonka was hugely popular and their best selling candy. But by 1990 they became discontinued all together.In 2014, Leaf Brands, LLC
acquired the Tart n’ Tiny trademark and will have them back in stores the second quarter of the year. Leaf’s focus is reintroducing the famous Tart n’ Tinys candy as the original, uncoated product from the 1970s and 1980s, and not the later, hard-coated versions. The original flavors will be back as well, with new varieties of Tropical and sour soon after.As of January 2015, Tart n’ Tinys were made available to the public in both bulk and in 4.5 oz packages.
