26. Swoops
> Introduced: 2003
> Discontinued: 2006
> Maker: The Hershey Company

Those who love chocolate would have likely enjoyed noshing on a good ole package of Swoops while they lasted. Swoops looked like chocolate-covered Pringles, but they actually didn’t have any salty surprise in the middle — or any kind of surprise — they were simply chocolate slices. The chocolatey, scoopable chip came in various iconic Hershey flavors such as Reese’s and Almond Joy. Bottom line is it wasn’t profitable — the product died out by the mid-2000s.

27. Reggie! Bar
> Introduced: 1978
> Discontinued: 1982
> Maker: Standard Brands

Remember legendary Yankees baseball player turned commentator Reggie Jackson? Well, the Reggie! Bar debuted at the Yankees home opener in 1978 and the confection survived for a total of four seasons. The round milk chocolate candy bar was filled with peanuts and caramel, much like the also popular Baby Ruth bar, which wasn’t, in fact, named after baseball legend Babe Ruth.

28. Fruit-shaped Trix cereal
> Introduced: 1991
> Discontinued: 2006
> Maker: General Mills

Trix cereal had already been pleasing the masses since its inception in 1955, so when the fruit-shaped variety launched in 1991 fans were intrigued. Kids born in the late ’80s and early ’90s likely only remember the fruit-shaped Trix cereal. In 2006, General Mills decided to revert to the classic puffs of popped corn from its original launch.

29. Munch ‘Ems
> Introduced: N/A
> Discontinued: 2000s

Don’t remember Munch ‘Ems? Think of a hybrid between a potato chip and a cracker, and that basically sums up the concept of this salty snack. Munch ‘Ems came in several flavors, including sour cream and onion, ranch, and cheddar. The product was off the shelves by the early 21st century.
