Products that have disappeared

I was just remembering that I haven't seen PRELL shampoo in forever. Remember the glass bottle with the pearl in the bottom.
And I haven't seen a long, skinny shaped tootsie roll.
I see the little log ones and the big one that you can break off sections, only.
What about Bonomo Turkish Taffy?

Who else can think of anything?

I have prell in my shower right now...bought it at Meijers but not with the pearl.

I never see Ivory shampoo though, my grandma always had that and I loved the smell... I bought it up till I was a teenager but now I never see it!

i keep thinking "ink", but that's supposed to do that, in some cases.

ok, how about quisp cereal. little flying saucer crisps that turned into sugary goo in milk, left alone long enough.
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

My two favorite cereals, Post Oat Flakes, and Team Flakes (Nabisco, I think). I miss them!

what i've noticed missing from the store shelves for some time now is the et cereal (it had a peanut butter flavor that i kind of liked). then the popcorn flavored pringles potato chips and the chili filled hot dogs that were put out by oscar meyer.
