    I'm a coffee guy, but cappuccino flavored gum sounds gross and counter intuitive.

    What would you put on the list?

    After turning my girlfriend on to sticky toffee pudding, I went looking for Haagen-Dazs' version of it. (It had won some TV show contest to become its newest flavor a couple of years ago.) I was very disappointed to learn that the flavor had been discontinued. it was damn good.

    So, so glad I'm not alone in my love for Purplesaurus Rex Kool-Aid. Just sitting here, I want to punch a kitten over the notion that someone thought it was a good idea to discontinue that flavor.
    And the link on the asylum.com article pays greater tribute to P-Rex than I ever could:

    McRib shouldn't be on the list. It's not discontinuted; it's just a "limited time only" thing they have every year for about 3-4 months. Actually, I kind of think that's smart thinking on McDonald's part because I think it convinces people that it's better than it actually is just because it's much different than anything else they have and the fact that you can only get it for a short period of time each year.

    McRib is McNasty.

    I haven't drank (drunk?) soda on a regular basis for a little over a year but I swear to everything that is holy that if the powers that be brought Pepsi Blue back, I'd buy 300 bottles of it.

    Pepsi Blue was amazing.

    I still crave Hi-C Ecto Cooler, which I haven't had since I was a kid.

    I forgot about the Magic Middles. Holy shit, those were epic. One delicious gangbang in my mouth. (I kid, I kid)

    If those can be discontinued, nothing is safe.

    Pepsi briefly made a version that was spiked with lemon flavor that was good.

    As for me:
