Candy Bars or sweets you no longer can get!

Was there a favourite bar or candy treat you no longer can get that you really liked?

mmmm Bottle caps... now I know they have them again but they don't make the green ones and I swear the root beer tastes different.

I have seen many candy stores pop up with a lot of the retro candy so the drought is pretty much over for a lot of the old favorites.

I loved Wig Wags, Koo Koos, MoJo's, BB Bats... hmmm a whole lot of chewy going on there, it's a wonder I have any teeth left :lol:

Fun Dip / Lik-m-Aid. I think you can still get it, but they changed it in the late 80s / early 90s. The candy stick became a harder, less tasty thing, and they got rid of the ugly kid who was on the package. It just wasn't the same anymore.

Also, Pecan Logs. I don't think you could ever get them up here when I was a kid, but we used to buy them at Stuckey's in the States when we drove down to Floriday each year. They started being sold in grocery stores here several years ago, but I haven't seen them in ages.
