I just remembered 2 other things-
1. Turpenhydrate cough syrup. It tasted horrible when I was a little kid (although I've since found a liquor that tastes like it, orange flavor)
2. Gummy honey cough drops. I don't remember who made them-Smiths or Hills Brothers, I think.

Like another poster said, they did have it last year. It was in a different format though. Last year instead of regular body wash they switched it to a "3 in 1" and it was in with a different set of scents than the ones from the year before. The year before last year was vanilla bean noel & winter candy apple I believe, this past year it was in with Nutcracker Sweet, a licorice one and some other flavor, some kind of gingerbread I think.

Fudgetown cookies (Mother's used to make something close, but I heard they don't make them anymore).

Wispa candy bars (I think that they were made by Cadbury) I know that you can buy them in Epcot at the Twinings Tea shop.

Avon Dew Kiss moisturizer.

Sara Lee Raspberry Danish (frozen).

Marathon candy bar (they were a foot long, came in a red wrapper with a ruler on the back and was just caramel covered in chocolate).

Russel Stover chocolate cream egg (Dad used to buy me for Easter every year). They had like a 3 musketeer chocolate filling. Yummy.

Cookie Crisp vanilla cereal

Fudgies

Nabisco Mystic Mints

Products I've loved and lost:

The original Downy fabric softener. It's the only brand that didn't mess with my allergies. Not Advanced, not any floral or fresh breeze scent. The original! I probably tolerated it since I was raised on it. Now I'm stuck with scent free Downy. I really miss that "April Fresh" scent.

The original Pantene ProV formula. The later editions don't feel the same and certainly don't smell the same. Aaargh!

I did lose these--but Mother's brought them back--Flaky Flix. Awesome cookies! So many people contacted them about that discontinued product that Mother's starting making them again. Hooray!

Silk soymilk with fiber - it had 5 grams per cup instead of the 1 I get with the regular. I wish I could still get it in my area

You'd never find them on the Vicks website, because Vicks missed the boat on these and started pushing their weak imitation product about a year late. I found this out the hard way when I was asking for Vick's Shower Soothers at both Target and Wal-Mart when they first were on the market. Neither store could find them under Vick's. The W-M pharmacy folks pointed me toward the Sudacare Shower Soothers and I was hooked. I tried the Vick's product about a year later and was sorely disappointed.

Shower Soothers were produced by SudaCare which was a division of Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. Sadly, Pfizer has since changed their focus to prescription meds only. I can no longer locate their Consumer Healthcare division on their website.

Luckily, I have a decent stash of Shower Soothers stockpiled. Both original scent and the lavender. The later is a great aromatherapy solution for the shower. Aaaaaah.

For the makeup, make sure you check out ebay. I found my favorite discontinued lippy on there, and bought 6 tubes for a great price. I'm set for quite a while, and have extra to stash in my desk at work and in my briefcase.

I bought DD19 three boxes a couple months ago after seeing it at Meijer. She shared one box with her roommate, but hid the other two.

Campbell's Noodles & Ground Beef soup

The one product that will forever make me long for it, though, has to be Planters Cheez Balls; they had this perfect texture that I've never been able to find in any other brand.

Yankee Candle Green Grass scent. My favorite scent ever.
They discontinued it, I haven't been able to find anything close and wasted money trying.

Glade Glass Scents. They looked like a small glass block like you use in windows, but had a scent in the middle. I loved them, but now can't find them anywhere.

I used to buy these white terry socks at Kohls. I loved them. Comfy and the right height, they no longer carry them and I can't find anything similiar.

Avon waterproof eyeliner. They still carry a waterproof eyeliner, but it isn't the same as I used to use and doesn't stay on anywhere near as well as the original.

I can't remember what they were called, but Peppridge Farm used to make these pastry pocket things that you bought frozen, they were all flaky pastry on the outside and had chocolate in the middle that got all melty when you put them in the oven. Soooooooooooooooooooooo good.

Quality Disney adult clothing.

These are available at World Market if you have one in your area. Marathon bars are called "Curly Wurly" by Cadbury.

I don't have a World Market near me. Is there one near Disney? I will be going there in September (hopefully).
