If you grew up in the eighties, nineties, or early 2000s, you are guaranteed to remember most of these sugary, salty, bad-for-you-but-oh-so-delicious snacks. While these goodies were discontinued long ago, some have made a recent comeback, whether temporarily or permanently. Such as Kraft bringing back the classic 90’s snack Planters Cheez Balls for a limited time.
Major companies often use the “Limited Edition” marketing technique to help grow their brand’s awareness, many trying to create the craziest product to get people talking. The reasons for the discontinuances vary from low sales to new, buzz-killing health information and research, such as the toll that too much high fructose corn syrup or too many trans fats can take on your health. Regardless, these snacks sure take us back!
