Do any of you lament the discontinuation of a rad product that was unfairly sent to the Isle of Misfits without any input from YOU?!? Do these companies not know, the power of YOU?
Here is my top 10 list of things that should be brought back along with the promise of a better world:
Probably the best, most delicious and wrong candy snack EVAH! It had a peanut butter soft candy center with a hard candy coating. I think about them often and then a little tear wells up in my eye.
Hot on one side, cold on the other. The only Mickey D’s hamburger I enjoyed. Chalked full of mayonnaise and awkward packaging, it was hamburger heaven.
Creme Savers yogurt, where art thou? Breyers website still teases me with a whole page dedicated to the scrumptious yogurt treat, but they are nowhere to be found. Somebody issue a 10-57, over and out.
The discontinuation of this lipstick, which is a color I could never put my finger on, but oddly worked for me — it drives me to drink. Matte Neurtrale, I hope you know, you were loved.
No, not the OTC wuss-ass stuff. The stuff our Nanny-state government has relegated to behind the pharmacy counter only to be had after age, rank, serial number, relinquishment of first born son and blood type are given. While I did find the pseudoephedrine version (the kind that moms all over the country use to make meth) at drugstore.com (for sale if you like to make decongestant a huge and lengthy project), it is impossible to find in my state, even at the pharmacy. I curse you NyQuil! I curse you government! How DARE YOU! And don’t even try to woo me with that dumb-ass placebo Phenylephrine. That’s for sissies.
It worked. Why discontinue it?
Yes, McDonald’s again (don’t worry, the McRib isn’t further down on this list). It’s the small things in life, okay? Must my life be filled with gray skies all the time? Seriously. How hard is it to stock this plastic bagged concoction to alleviate my guilt?
Okay, I’m showing my age. About 12 years ago, I visited this site religiously. It was one of the first parenting sites, owned by a nurse, with forums and funky avatars. I met many parents who were just as unimpressed with parenthood as I was, then “the man” bought them out and shut ‘em down. Bastards!
It’s been a long time since my boys were toddlers, but when my second son reached the age that he needed to be weaned over to sippy cups, my heart was filled with rage (rage?!?) and sadness that Avent had replaced the drippy sippy tips with the new anti-spill ones. I preferred the old kind. The ones where you could just use the bottom and switch out the nipple to a sippy tip. Things were so much simpler back then.
