11. Keebler Fudge Magic Middles
> Introduced: 1980s
> Discontinued: 1994
> Maker: The Keebler Company

Launched sometime in the ’80s, Keebler Fudge Magic Middles were sensational while they were for sale. Produced by the Keebler Company, the magic of this snack was the chocolate fudge cream filling inside a shortbread cookie crust. Another variation even had a peanut butter-flavored crust. Both flavors got the boot from the company’s production line by the mid ’90s.

12. Hostess Chocodiles
> Introduced: 1980s
> Discontinued: 1999
> Maker: Hostess

The Chocodile debuted in the ’80s, gaining popularity as the chocolate-covered Twinkie. The beloved Hostess product got its unique name from the snack’s original mascot, Chauncey Crocodile. To many’s delight, Chocodiles’ 15-year hiatus came to an end in 2014 when Hostess decided to revive the product in tiny fun-size form.

13. French Toast Crunch
> Introduced: 1995
> Discontinued: 2006
> Maker: General Mills

There’s French toast, and then there’s General Mills French Toast Crunch. What’s the difference? Honestly, despite coming in cereal form, there isn’t much difference flavor-wise. Devoted fans have incessantly tweeted at General Mills, requesting the company bring back the cereal ever since it was discontinued in 2006. The company finally caved and rebooted the cereal in 2015 in its original fashion.

14. Black Pepper Jack Doritos
> Introduced: 2003 – 2004
> Discontinued: 2008
> Maker: Frito-Lay

Debuting sometime between 2003 and 2004, Black Pepper Jack Doritos hooked many Doritos fans nationwide, much like any non-traditional Doritos flavors do. These nacho cheese-flavored chips with a kick were not on store shelves for long as Frito-Lay ceased production by 2008.

15. Carnation breakfast bars
> Introduced: 1970s
> Discontinued: 1993
> Maker: Nestlé

It’s unclear as to what year Carnation breakfast bars popped up, but there are advertisements of the snack dating back to 1973. Back in the ’70s, Carnation breakfast bars were advertised in magazines as “The Hip Pocket Meal.” The chocolate-covered oat bar has been off the shelves for about 25 years now, but who’s to say Nestlé won’t ever bring it back?
