Have you ever wondered what happened to some of your favorite old time candies? Some brands have gone by the wayside. Candy that was once loved by so many people will suddenly disappear from store shelves without a trace. It becomes just another memory along with everything else that vanishes into thin air! BB Bats, Slo Pokes, and Kits have just been discontinued by the manufacturer in the past few months. BB Bat taffy pops were getting really soft and would ooze out of their wrapper if they got a little warm. I'm not at all surprised at all that they're no longer available. Something about them was different.
Chuckles, Hershey Bars, Good & Plenty, Jujubes, Bit-O-Honey, and Lifesavers are here to stay. They've been around since your grandparents were kids, and you can still find them in the candy aisle. They'll probably be around for your grandchildren, too. Some candy is timeless and seems to please one generation after another.
Other candies have had their ingredients reformulated. Corn syrup used to be a main ingredient in candy. Today a lot of it has been replaced with high fructose corn syrup because it cuts cost. It's a different form of sweetener than basic corn syrup, so it alters the original recipe. That's why some candy brands might taste different than what you remember as a kid.

Some discontinued candy that you won't be eating anytime soon include the Marathon Bar, Seven-Up Bar, High Noon Candy Bar, Black Cow Sucker, Good & Fruity, Reggie Bar, Sugar Mama, Powerhouse, and Milkshake Bar.
Savor every bite of candy, because one day you might have to rely on your memory if the manufacturer stops making it!
