Top 10 Discontinued or Rare Products and Brands that Need to Be Brought Back EverywhereThere's so many things that got discontinued or are no longer available in certain areas that really need to be brought back. Feel free to add more items as well.
Technically, they're not discontinued, but their fragrance has changed multiple times over the last few years. There was one specific fragrance that smelled much better than the others. Back in 2019, the Little Pup Vanilla fragrance was perfect. It wasn't too sweet or too overbearing like the current ones. It had a very nice candle-like, perfumy type of smell and felt like paradise.
Sadly, they changed the fragrance in 2020 and again in 2021. The same thing happened with the Little Joe fragrance back in 2016. There was at least one version of Little Joe Vanilla that was perfect in 2016. They really need to eliminate the current ones and bring back the best versions. They should stick with the best-smelling one and not all those post-2019 fragrances, which aren't even half as good.
It may or may not be discontinued, but I haven't been able to find it in stores for a while now. In my opinion, this is the best iced tea drink. It's far superior to any other iced tea beverages. This was also one of my favorite drinks as a kid. They really need to bring it back. It was truly amazing.
Laurentien is an art supply brand that was discontinued around 2012. They produced various art supplies, but their colored pencils and fine-line markers were definitely their best products. The colored pencils are of very high quality and offer a great range of colors. The fine-line markers were also excellent. If you ever see Laurentien products in stores, I advise you to buy some.
Out of all the Goldfish cracker flavors, this one tasted the best, personally. These were very flavorful and the only ones I genuinely enjoyed a lot.
If you're wondering what these are, they're musical instruments that make various riffs and sounds. These toys are from the '90s and are nearly 30 years old as of 2022. They come in different instruments, from guitars to fiddles to banjos and more. They're quite rare and expensive at this point. These toys are truly fantastic and are way better than the toys you'd currently find in stores.
The Little Trees car freshener Black Forest was released in late 2008 and got discontinued in early 2016. This was one of the best fragrances, as it smelled just like a nice masculine scent without having that overrated "showoff" kick to it. It was more natural and relaxing rather than being overpowering. The design was also very cool-looking. They really need to bring this one back because it's GOAT tier. The "closest" car fresheners that smell like Black Forest, which are still available as of 2022, are either Rose Thorn or Wild Hemp. They don't even smell as amazing, but they're still great.
It's still semi-common in rental cars, but one that actually works is as rare as can be.
I've seen a couple of videos of people eating these jelly beans, and I'm genuinely curious to try them (for example, Baby Wipes, Skunk Spray, and Pencil Shavings). The earliest edition I tried was the fourth one, which got discontinued in 2018. I genuinely wish I had tried this edition.
These looked and tasted great. They were better than the regular fries, which aren't bad at all either. Too bad they were only there for a limited time.
Oh yeah, these were so good.
This and the Lite version were great Nintendo handheld consoles. They also had a Game Boy Advance slot, so you could play those video games on the Nintendo DS as well. There were a lot of great Super Mario games.
The Phat version is semi-rare, but Lites and Is are generally unimpressive on eBay and Goodwills.
Sears became defunct in January 2018. Despite being a bit expensive, it wasn't that bad of a store brand. In 2017, they announced they would be closing all Sears stores in Canada. Sales then started in late 2017.
I remember going to Sears when I was a kid. It actually filed for bankruptcy in October 2018.
Although many people viewed the name as vulgar, it wasn't meant to be so.
The name was inspired by Honour de Balzac, who was a French poet artist.
This was the brand for balloon-filled balls (in which balloons filled cotton bags).
The jingle from the commercials was also viewed as vulgar since they said "whack, toss em, and bet you can't bust Balzac".
The CEO got fired as a result, and the products got banned.
If only they were made under a different name and commercial jingle that people wouldn't find vulgar, would these have lasted to this day.
And it would be great if they were around today under such a different name and commercials (which would require a different CEO as well as a contract under that name).
A 12" doll by the Ideal Toy Company and was dressable.
She was available from 1962 to 1966.
There is only one Blockbuster store remaining, and it's in Bend, Oregon. Blockbuster was so popular and was the place to buy VCR and VHS tapes before DVD and Blu-Ray discs, along with streaming services, became popular.
I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't remember going to Blockbuster at least once, because that place was awesome. I remember going there in the late 2000s, probably in 2009, with my family a few years before it closed.
Thanks to streaming services, there really isn't much need for Blockbuster anymore.
They came back and are now part of the Macy's stores after teaming up with Macy's to re-emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The only flagship store is in New Jersey.
They still make these. I've seen them in a bunch of stores in my city.
I used to drink this juice all the time until it was discontinued sometime in 2012.
It's a shame these wonderful shoes were discontinued around a decade ago. I'm lucky that I found a pair in my size on eBay.
I wish I could find some black 2000s shag bands in stores because they seem to be discontinued nowadays. Maybe I'll find some online.
If you don't know what these are, they were strawberry-flavored candies that looked a lot like peppermint, and they were so delicious! I bought something similar, but nothing compares to the old Creme Savers.
