Almost everyone recalls their first bite of a delectable Dunkaroo, dipped in confetti-colored creme. Maybe you even washed it down with a caffeine-loaded, citrusy Surge, or followed it up with a giant bowl of Mud N' Bugs cereal. Remember when Trix was still fruit-shaped, or when Altoids had tangy fruit flavors? Do you recall your first taste of Planter's Cheese Balls? Or the decidedly superior French Toast Crunch? Or the perfectly gooey, melt-in-your-mouth Rice Crispies Treats Cereal?

These tasty discontinued foods will give you serious nostalgia, and make you wish you had a time machine so you could go back and stockpile your favorites, or just get one more taste of one of these treats. The drinks and snacks of the 2000s were loaded with some of the most unforgettable flavors and textures of all time. Although these snacks are sadly no longer with us, they will live on forever in our memories.
