Brands and products you miss, that went out of business or changed [View all]

The Hostess company going bankrupt reminded me of some other products I was sad to see go. The first was a really sour tasting lemonade. I forget the brand name, but it had an Austrailian type theme to it. The slogan even referred to how sour it was as a mark of distinction. I was probably the only one who really liked it because whenever I would buy it off the shelf, the shelf would be full. I remember it was only around for a brief time until it disappeared, like maybe a year or so. I loved that lemonade, it was super sour and really had a kick to it.

The second product didn't disappear, but changed their formula. I am speaking of Carnation chocolate breakfast bars. I absolutely loved these things, they tasted awesome and were good for you too, a rare combination. Then one day I noticed the flavor was completely different, and was just yuck. I looked at the box and then saw it said new formula on it. I was pissed, needless to say. I was so mad that I called the 1-800 number listed on the package to complain. The lady took my complaint and said thank you, we will note that. Of course nothing changed and they kept their horrible tasting new formula and I stopped buying the breakfast bars.

Anyone experience a similar situation?
