Costco's California Rolls (the ones with smelt/caviar eggs on them). Every Costco in the Bay Area stopped selling them about a decade+ ago I think.

Halloween reminded me of these. There were 1 or 2 years when these were pretty popular. They were awesome.

few surprises on that list.

Gator Gum has been discontinued since '89? Did not know that. I thought it was around until the mid-2000s. If you're looking for an alternative, Quench Gum isn't a bad backup. It's usually on the counter of every Dick's, Dunham's, and maybe Champs.

I had no idea Hydrox were gone. I just thought the grocery chain that I shop at stopped carrying them. This article mentions a few alternatives. Newman-O's are probably the closest thing I've had to Hydrox. There was a store-brand cookie that also compared, but it's been at least 10 years since I've had it so there's a good chance the recipe might be changed or it might even be gone.

But Jolly Ranchers in stick form? Those are still available. http://www.candywarehouse.com/colors...-36-piece-box/

I know you can still get them at 7-11 but they're expensive there. I miss when you can buy them from the grocery store like Rice Crispy Treats.

Speaking of fast food. Burger King used to have Chicken Tender Sandwiches for a dollar.

Only 1/2 retro. The cans should have the two button tabs on them like the real thing!

I got a large box of these at Costco a couple weeks ago.
