    found out today they are discontinuing to make my husband's favorite chips they are only made in this area of northern Ohio so anytime a relative came back they stocked up and took them home. The company says they are no longer cost efficient to make. The company has made them for over 30 years and then was bought by another company now they are no longer

    The same thing happened years ago to my family's favorite chips... They bought cases of them before they were discontinued... and doled them out sparingly :D:D:D

    Happens to us also. When Healthy Choice first came out with their frozen entrees they had fish. It was so good. Just when you find something good, they discontinue the line. Oh well!

    I thought that only happened to me when I finally would find something my daughter liked. Whether it was food or clothes!

    That's the story of my life. Whenever I like something, it gets discontinued.

    This is a big joke in our family. If a food comes in several "flavors", the one we like the best is always the one that is discontinued first. Now when DH and I both like a particular "item" of food, we fill the pantry with it.....just in case!

    potato chips were invented in a restaurant on the shores of Lake Loughberry, the reservoir for Saratoga NY. A man was complaining that his fried potatoes had been cut too thick. So the chef sliced them paper-thin and exclaimed - I hope these are thin enough for him!!! true story - my grandmother was Saratoga county historian.

    I hate finding anything like this, that I like anymore, cause, sure enough, pretty soon they discontinue it, or my flavor anyway. Not fair, but not much we can do about it, right...

    A number of years back Nabisco stopped making my favorite cookie and it near broke my heart. It was the Hey Dey and I figure it was getting to expensive to make considering what they had to sell for. The other day I found a recipie for them on lne to make a copy cat type. Going to give it a try.

    Now THAT'S an oxymoron!

    I got so annoyed with Bath & Bodyworks I told the manager I refuse to shop there anymore. I should probably write the company, too. They are constantly introducing new fragrances, but then they turn around and discontinue them! Why should I even bother trying their new ones - they'll be around less than a year!

    This happened with a type of pickle that was so close to how Mom used to make. (Remember I am from Germany and pretty persnickety where pickles are concerned.) Oh well, the taste buds WILL adjust and hope you find decent replacements.

    Diamond Almonds used to make a flavor called "Sweet Maui Onion". Holy smokes, were they good. I can't find them on the shelves anymore in the can, only occasionally in single serving snack packs at a Grocery Outlet.

    I thought I just saw the dill pickle chips at our FM the other day. Hmmm-I'll have to look again next time I go.

    I know that when I find one of my favorites at Big Lot, I had better stock up, that has been discontinued.

    When companies discontinue a product, they sell their inventory to places like Big Lot.
