Secret bars



A kind of delicate lattice with a chocolate mousse centre. Shortlived I imagine due to it's fragility and the high proportion of stock getting smashed to bits before reaching the shelves.

is there a word for the sort of pining you get for something you didn't know about until it was too late?   like an ex-girlfriend's twisted sex fantasies? or baked-beans-pizza? or both at once?

Breakfast slices - these are to bacon what salami is to ham. Used to be available everywhere, but now seemingly only made in Ireland and sporadically available on Sainsbury's or Asda's online-only sites.

Got to love indeterminate meat products where they're careful not to commit to exactly what it is. Reminds me of this;



These may still be available though.

The Welsh word hiraeth kind of covers that.

I'd forgotten all about these! Among my favourite readymade pizzas of all time, it's criminal that they stopped making them.

Nestle Lion cereal. Completely disappeared from shop shelves last month, presumably because it contained a mad amount of sugar.

Wouldn't surprise me if they've been reformulating it for a "now 50% less sugar" relaunch, but it won't be the same.

Pot Casserole (80s spin off of Pot Noodle), the beef flavoured one was better than all of the noodle variations.

Golden Wonder Sausage & Tomato flavour crisps.

A half-decent fish in parsley sauce (boil/microwave in the bag). The few that are available now are terrible, both the sauce and quality of fish.

big 10p bars of green honeycomb stuff covered in fake chocolate
Rice Krispies with hard marshmallow bits in it (came out early 90s back when you could get regular price domestic Lucky Charms)
Milky Lunch bars
Peppermint Pattys, were rare anyway, like a wagon wheel full of mint fondant
Bitz bars, I fucking loved these

edit: McRibs obviously, the ones Rustlers make are quite good though

Can you still buy Fruit Salads? Proper ones, not the soft ones.

How about Wham bars?

Dan cake.

Back in the day you could get some Dan cake any day in the local co-op or Londis or whatever. Haven't seen one for like a decade  now though.

They are, but they seem to be a 'petrol station-only' delicacy. No supermarket space for them. (It's telling that I know this...)

The Heinz Baked Bean pizzas were revived this year, but sold for a limited time and only to gits.

Can you still get those little ploughmans lunches  - cracker, pickled onion and a triangle of 'cheese' in a bag?

I still miss Ainsley Harriott's cauliflower cheese flavour and bombay potato flavour cup-a-soups.

A friend of mine once had one of these then threw it all back up again a few hours later and was convinced it was the pizza that had made him ill. He even set the scene beautifully by saying it looked quite similar before and after. As a result I never tried one and even the thought of them makes me feel a bit nauseous, which is daft as beans and cheese on a jacket spud is delicious.
