What are some foods you loved that they don't make anymore?

sizzlean 'bacon'. i used to love that stuff.
those microwavable cookies, think they were called s'mores, that pufffed up and got all melty and gooey
the smiley-faced cookies that were chocolate on one side and vanilla on the other with a cream-filled center
that microwave oatmeal that came with a packet of fruit-flavored gel so you could write on it
the other oatmeal that when you stirred it up, little something-or-anothers emerged. some kind of gummy candy, maybe?
those ore-ida fries that you could microwave that came in a take-out sort of container... at least, i don't THINK they make those anymore...?
light 'n lively yogurt

any others you guys can think of?

They don't make Bird's Eye Creamed Peas anymore - it was in a cream sauce with little chunks of potatoes - I LOVED those when I was little; they were shear ultimate comfort food!!!!!

And homemade ones just aren't the same - I've never been able to get the exact portion of "preservatives" right :P

Your microwave french fries reminded me of the short-lived microwave milk shakes. There was a fine line of how long to heat them so that they weren't still frozen solid but not a warm puddle. They'd be my treat as a kid after I had my braces tightened.

Also, I think you can still find Qwisp cereal some places but not by me. Was always a favorite when we'd go visit my granparents in MI.

fast-food-wise, there were 'chicken littles'. you know, those mini chicken patty sandwiches. we have an on-going debate about which restaurant sold them. was it BK or was it KFC?

Go Ahead Candy Bars.....in High School we had an open campus and go leave school for lunch. A bunch of us would head over to the IGA and my lunch would consist of a pop and one of these.....I absolutely loved them.

Campbell's Italian Tomato Soup........I used to make an awesome pork chop dish using this but now I can't since they don't make this anymore.....
