Crave Online / Reddit

Companies spent a lot of time designing these masterpieces and marketing them to the public, and all for what?

They got us obsessed with countless snacks until one day they decided to discontinue them.

Here are 12 true snack tragedies that we really want to make a comeback.

1. Planterz Cheeze Balls

Online petitions after online petitions could not bring back these crunchy, stick-to-your-fingers cheese balls. It was discontinued in the early '00s, and Planter's seems to now be focusing on nut-based snacks.

2. Chicken McNuggets Shanghai

McDonald's knew exactly what kids liked, and these McNuggets that came with three delicious sauces, chopsticks, and a McFortune cookie was just one of them. But like many things the fast food chain has offered, it's for a limited time only.

Do you remember the 1986 commercial for Chicken McNuggets Shanghai?

3. Oatmeal Swirlers

The mix of unhealthy and healthy was the only thing that parents and their children could agree on, because mom, you know what, "Swirls just wanna have fun!" This ideal '90s breakfast was just another food fad.

4. Hostess Chocodiles

This is how you devastate children: introduce their taste buds to chocolate-covered Twinkies and later tell them they're not going to be made anymore. Believe it or not, some people still have a box of these and are trying to sell it on eBay.

5. Hubba Bubba Soda

Gum-flavored pop is something you drank on a dare. It was better than eating bugs - dead or alive.
