Fiery Habanero Doritos
> Introduced: 2005
> Discontinued: 2012
> Maker: Frito-Lay

Though this flavor disappeared in the standard Doritos format, it continued on in Mexico with rolled cigarette-shaped chips under the Doritos Dinimita label, and is sold in the United States in small, three-dimensional triangles in the brand’s Flavor Shots series.

Golden Yangles
> Introduced: 1981
> Discontinued: 1992
> Maker: Various regional bakers for Girl Scouts

These are a rarity in more ways than one: Not only have they been out of circulation for almost two decades, but they were a Girl Scout cookie that wasn’t a cookie. Golden Yangles were puffed cheddar-flavored crackers, semi-triangular in shape, with one edge grooved into seven “fingers.”

Hershey’s Bar None
> Introduced: 1987
> Discontinued: 1997
> Maker: Hershey

“Tame the Chocolate Beasty,” exhorted a Bar None commercial. The “Beasty” was a chocolate wafer with peanuts and a chocolate filling, all enclosed in more chocolate. In 1992, Hershey reformulated the Bar None to include caramel as well. A petition to bring back the candy garnered only 159 signatures.

Hershey Kissables
> Introduced: 2005
> Discontinued: 2009
> Maker: Hershey

Kissables, miniature Hershey’s Kisses coated in a hard candy shell, were originally made with milk chocolate, but the formula changed in 2007 and they lost the “milk chocolate” designation. Two years later, Hershey pulled the plug.

Jell-O Pudding Pops
> Introduced: 1982
> Discontinued: 1993
> Maker: General Foods

Frozen pudding on a stick, these Pops came in various flavors, including chocolate, vanilla, and banana. They were first test-marketed in 1978, but rolled out nationwide only four years later. The Jell-O name was licensed to Popsicle in 2004, and the latter company marketed Popsicle-shaped Jell-O Pops until about 2011, when they faded away again.
