10 Foods We Miss That You Won’t Find In Grocery Stores Today

1) Triple-Treat Ice Cream

Some folks considered Sealtest to be the best brand of ice cream for many years. When they introduced their Triple-Treat with three flavors in a cool pattern in the 1950s, it was a novelty to have this colorful dessert! Tasted so yummy, too.

2) Hershey’s BarNone candy bar

Yummy layers coated in chocolate: what’s not to like? There was a time when this was a personal favorite. This 1980s candy boasts an online community that wants to bring this baby back! It looks like there might be a company trying to re-release this great candy.

3) Jell-o Chiffon Pie Filling

There are plenty of pie fillings out there, but this one was divine. The lemon and the chocolate flavors were both really good!

4) Stouffer’s Ice Cream

With only a short-lived presence on supermarket shelves in 1974, this dessert did not hang around long. There is a lot of competition in the ice cream game.

5) Jets Cereal

If you wanted sugar and vitamins, then this was the cereal for you. When something has “sugar” in the name you know it’s going to be good. The fun shapes were also a big hit. You can watch a TV spot for this breakfast treat below.

6) Hires Root Beer

We’ve heard that this drink is still being sparsely distributed, but haven’t actually seen it in stores for years. It’s also been rumored that buying it online is the most reliable way to find this tasty root beer these days. Anyone ever get one of their home brewing kits?

7) Quake Cereal

Quake and Quisp were often shown together in advertising and in the fun little comics that were in the cereal box. While Quisp has had a re-launch recently, Quake cereal has not. It’s not hard to miss these fun cereals that made breakfast (and opening the box) so much fun.

8) Planters Cheezballs

Ok, so there are plenty of other cheese snacks in the world. But, there was something about these that was just better than the rest. There have even been petitions by consumers to have Planters bring these back. They were so good!

9) Campbell’s Bounty Chicken Stew

Campbell’s introduced this stew in the mid-1960s and it was good. Funny thing is, even though they don’t make this flavor anymore, there is a recipe on their website for how to make a similar stew using their current cream of chicken soup as a base.
