Discontinued Snacks That Remind Us Why Childhood Was So Good


Everyone had their favorite childhood snacks that you couldn’t wait to see when you opened up your lunch box. Unfortunately, many of these snacks have been discontinued and sent to the land of misfit snacks. So, prepare your tastebuds as we take a trip down memory lane.

These little packages of heaven were the best snack to get in the lunch box. One side contained little kangaroo shaped cookies, while the other contained a scoop of delicious chocolate or vanilla frosting. The perfect combination to make it the perfect lunch.

Most of the line of Hostess treats were quite delicious, but there was always something special about the Suzy Q’s. It was like an ice cream sandwich that you didn’t have to keep in the freezer. It was always a treat when mom caved in and let you get these little guys.
