Doritos with the flavor of guacamole? Sounds like a can't-miss idea for a snack, right? Although, when you look at the chips, they seem to mostly resemble Doritos covered in mold. That may have been a problem.
Do you love a fresh cooked breakfast, but don't have time to cook yourself? Then there was a time you could have gotten your waffle fix on with the maple-flavored cereal Waffle Crisp. The idea didn't last forever, but at least they didn't come out with a cereal called Denver Omelet Crisp.
The Bubble Jug was a jug full of colored dust that magically turned into gum when you chewed it. Finally, kids could have bubble gum the way it was meant to be enjoyed...by the spoonful. But now you would have to buy actual pieces of bubble gum and find a way to crush them down into a powder yourself, and that's just too much work.
Chocolate chip cookies are good, but sometimes they have a problem. They're simply just not chocolatey enough. Fortunately, that problem was solved with these cookies from Keebler, that put an entire layer of fudge right in the middle. Is there anything those elves can't do?
Believe it or not, there was a time when Doritos only came in Nacho flavor, and Lays only came in regular potato flavor. Which meant the idea of a snack chip that tasted like pizza was just about the craziest idea ever. And who was responsible for these chips? That's right, once again it was those magical Keebler Elves.
From the makers of Cinnamon Toast Crunch was this side product known as Chocolate Toast Crunch. Of course, cinnamon toast is a common snack on its own, while chocolate toast is not, which may have held back this product. Still, anytime you take an existing product and add chocolate to it, it's automatically a thousand times better.
S'mores have got to be one of the greatest snacks ever invented. To make S'mores even more convenient, Hershey's came out with a chocolate candy bar with a layer of Graham cracker and a thicker layer of marshmallow. But now that the candy bar is gone, you have to go out in the woods and build a campfire anytime you want a S'more, and who's got time for that?
The Keebler Elves struck again with Tato Skins, a baked potato chip that contained real potato skins. You know, the part of the baked potato that nobody actually eats. But somehow, in chip form, it totally worked.
Ecto Cooler was an orange-flavored (but green-colored) juice from Hi-C, that was apparently the beverage of choice for Slimer from Ghostbusters. The drink made a brief comeback in 2016, and then disappeared again. Apparently, when there's isn't a new Ghostbusters movie around, people don't want to drink a beverage that's the same color as ectoplasm.
Fruit snacks have been a popular school lunch item for years and years now, possibly because parents can pretend their sort-of healthy because they have fruit right in the name. But Shark Bites fruit snacks have been long gone for years. Perhaps kids became afraid to bite into a snack that just might bite back.
This product from the '90s was basically an a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, plus a cookie layer at the very bottom. Reese's has recently brought back a new product of the same name, with Oreo-like cookie pieces mixed in with the peanut butter. But the new product isn't layered like this one, and for some reason, the layers made it somehow more delicious.
Why General Mills would stop selling these cookies you could dunk into frosting is beyond comprehension. However, the product is still available in Canada, and General Mills even launched a "Smugglaroos" campaign encouraging people to smuggle Dunkaroos into the U.S. If you can get them past customs, it just might be worth it.
Berries & Cream Dr. Pepper was a magical beverage that tasted like you were drinking a magical combination of raspberry JELLO and whipped cream. But the magic eventually went away and the product is gone. However, the drink still has a fan base, including a Facebook page dedicated to bringing it back.
In 1996, McDonald's introduced The Arch Deluxe, a delicious burger marketed for adults only. It was topped with peppered bacon, gourmet onions, and a secret mustard and mayonnaise sauce. These days, McDonald's has a new line of premium burgers, but they still can't beat the original.
Does a brownie sandwich qualify as authentic Mexican cuisine? The answer is no, but neither does the Chalupa or the Gordita or the Doritos Locos Taco. And if Taco Bell can still sell those products, then they should definitely bring back amazing dessert filled with chocolatey goodness.
