What Items Have Disappeared or Are Very Rare These Days?

I can't find a hair net anywhere lol. But that aside many other things have disappeared like Blockbusters, Woolworths, Saturday morning pictures, tuna pie, washing up bowls, radios and lots of food I used to love including M & S white chocolate torte......It was so delicious. What do you miss?

Boots sell hair nets.. we actually sell quite a lot but I think it’s predominately people working in cafes or with food... my partner is upset by how the drink Sunkist disappeared from everywhere, you can only seem to get it in Poundstretchers and nowhere else... πŸ€”

I must admit I have never heard of that but sometimes food items are popular in certain areas. Remember life savers, nux bars, I am sure others will come up with some sweet memories.

Mars delights! I absolutely lived them! They were delicious. Also you used to get salt and vinegar popcorn and pretzels, I wish they still did those too.

I know mars delights but have a dreadful sweet tooth which I finally have under control so don't like pretzels and always chose sweet or toffee popcorn.

Golliwogs.

I think they are quite cute, but due to political correctness we don't see them around anymore.

I don't think you can even say the word. How about sheets, blankets, candlewick bedspreads, and the good old quilt, forerunner of the duvet.

When I was young my Mum always bought Newberry Fruits for us to eat at Christmas, I would nibble around the jelly and be left with the small sugary shell in the middle filled with the fruit flavoured juice. I still to this day always try to find them at Christmas but to no avail. 😞 Lovely memories of these sweets though. πŸ™‚

Yes! I remember Newberry fruits especially at Christmas. Personally I didn't like them much as I have always been more of a chocolate fiend.

I used to love a packet of Smith's Cheese Moments in the pub with a half of lager. I'm still not over the fact they discontinued them.
