Not all candy is created equal.
For every smash success like Snickers or Twix, you have little-remembered, discontinued candies like Summit Bars or Life Savers Holes. But even though these 20 sweets are gone from this world, it doesn’t mean we don’t miss them whenever we walk past the candy aisle at the grocery store.
Whether they suffered from low sales, poorly received recipe changes, or were literally ruled illegal, these snacks are impossible to get — at least in the way you remember them from when you were a kid.
In honor of National Candy Month, take a stroll down memory lane and remember these 20 candies that you’re probably still craving today.
The Wonder Ball was outlawed due to choking hazards.
We’ll never be over Wonder Balls. This chocolate ball used to be filled with a plastic toy, but, due to choking concerns, Nestlé was forced to change the center from toys to candy. This lasted until 2004, when Nestlé sold the Wonder Ball to the Frankford Candy & Chocolate Company, which chose to discontinue them.
Cookies-N-Creme Bars weren’t long for this world, but made a big impression.
Twix released two flavors in 1990: Cookies-n-Creme and Chocolate Fudge. However, only Cookies-N-Creme inspired a petition and a Facebook page begging for its return.
Instead of the classic caramel inside, these bars featured a chocolate cookie surrounded by creme and a layer of chocolate. They were only around for a year.
If you hated roasting marshmallows, Hershey S’mores bars were the candy for you.
Hershey’s S’mores was the answer for anyone too lazy or too far from a campfire to make their own s’mores. The bars combined chocolate, marshmallow, and graham crackers into one prepackaged snack.
Sadly, this delicious candy bar didn’t last too long, and was discontinued shortly after its 2003 creation, most likely due to low sales. But the internet never forgets. There’s a Quora thread asking the important question: Why did this happen? There’s also a Facebook page dedicated to getting these bars back on shelves and into our lives once more.
