Butterfinger BBs
> Introduced: 1992
> Discontinued: 2006
> Maker: Nestlé

More the size of marbles than BBs, these candies — once plugged on the television show “The Simpsons” — were reintroduced in 2009. Fans claimed they weren’t the same, and in any case they’re now shaped like mini-candy bars instead of spheres.
