32. Apple Newtons
> Introduced: N/A
> Discontinued: N/A
> Maker: Nabisco

You probably guessed it. Apple Newtons were simply one of the various Fig Newton flavors. Nabisco changed Fig Newtons to just Newtons in 2012 because of the other flavors the company added, including raspberry and strawberry. However, it was the apple version that ended up getting the boot. Nabisco did come out with a baked apple & cinnamon flavor, but it’s just not the same as the original apple.

33. Girl Scout Lemon Coolers
> Introduced: Early 2000s
> Discontinued: 2006
> Maker: ABC Smart Cookies and Little Brownie Bakers

Who doesn’t love a Girl Scout Cookie? Girl Scout’s Lemon Coolers were short-lived, with the last boxes sold in 2006. The idea, however, didn’t die. In 2012, the Girl Scouts released Savannah Smiles. Savannah Smiles are essentially the same refreshing, lemon-flavored cookie doused in soft powdered sugar, just with a different name and slightly different texture.

34. Ben & Jerry’s Tennessee Mud flavor
> Introduced: 1988
> Discontinued: 1989
> Maker: Ben & Jerry’s

Iconic ice cream brand Ben & Jerry’s launched the Tennessee Mud flavor back in 1988. Like most Ben & Jerry’s flavors, this title also wasn’t transparent about the flavor’s ingredients. Though, you expect any Ben & Jerry’s to taste heavenly, even when it’s called mud. Tennessee Mud had a coffee ice cream base with hints of amaretto, Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey, and roasted almonds swirled into the mix. Sadly, the flavor only lasted one year on the market.

35. Jell-O 1-2-3
> Introduced: 1969
> Discontinued: 1996
> Maker: Kraft Foods

Jell-O products have been satisfying consumers for many decades, with the first attempt at the gelatin concoction whipped up as early as 1845. In 1969, the Jell-O 1-2-3 was born. It was a dessert of three separate layers, all with different textures. The bottom layer was a traditional jello base, the middle was similar to a mousse, and the top was creamy. Jell-O 1-2-3 came in five different flavors and was sold in stores until 1996.
