  • 5. Sprite Remix

    Sprite Remix

    Entered the grocery store of the great beyond in 2005.

  • 6. Surge

    The turbulent mid-90's took these delicious treats from our needy hands.

  • 8. Ecto Cooler

    Despite initially being simply a movie tie-in for 1984's Ghostbusters, Ecto Cooler disappeared in 2001, forever ruining the contents of your lunchbox.

  • 9. 3D Doritos

    3D Doritos

    Apparently the world wasn't ready for 3D snacks in the mid 2000's, and so this product ended its run all too early. I blame Avatar.

  • 10. Crystal Pepsi

    Crystal Pepsi

    This great experiment in color was discontinued in 1993.

  • 11. Squeezits

    Squeezits

    The first energy drink ever apparently ran out of fuel in 1999.

  • 17. Uh-Oh Oreos

    Uh-Oh Oreos

    Apparently the product has since been rebranded in 2007… but it will never be the same.

  • 18. Wonder Balls

    Wonder Balls

    What's inside a wonder ball? Magic. And Nestle killed magic in 2004.

  • 19. PB Max

    PB Max

    Discontinued sometime in the 90's because the Mars family didn't like peanut butter. Seriously.

  • 20. Orbitz

    Orbitz

    This ground breaking soft drink/floating dots hybrid met its end in 1997. Who cares if it tasted bad, it looked so DAMN COOL.

  • 22. Apple Fig Newtons

    Apple Fig Newtons

    These delicious treats have disappeared without much warning in recent years.

    Gatorade Gum

    Gatorade was the first to learn that drinks and gum don't mix so well in the late 90's.

  • 24. Heinz EZ Squirt

    Heinz EZ Squirt

    There is something just so damn awesome about colorful condiments. Or maybe just so damn gross. Either way, barf ketchup was discontinued in 2006.

  • 25. The Supersize

    The Supersize

    Phased out of the McDonalds menu in 2004. Just once, just one more time, I'd like to say those wonderful words
