I can certainly respect that. And preserving 'heritage' varieties of food is not only tasty, but important. You never know when that weird variety of carrot that almost no one grows anymore has a billion bushel trait hiding in it. So here's a discontinued food I'd like to try.There may not be a difference between selective breeding and messing with the DNA itself (messing with one part of the code for a trait can cause issues with others), but it's my taste.
my memory of Strongbow is tied to the moment in life where my favorite bar was a honest bar for bicyclists that was then destroyed by sudden hipster popularity.
when it was the bar for bikers they had strongbow, down to earth bartenders and fun shit like trivia. then the bar got popular, they had more and more dj nights and strongbow was replaced by redds and angry orchard. the down to earth bartenders quit and then the bar lost its "uniqueness" and the hipsters moved on to the next fad. bar died last i checked.
redds and angry orchard are shit ciders.
Venom energy drinks, Black Mamba in particular. I used to love these, but I haven't seen them for years and years. I don't think/know for certain if they're officially discontinued, but I'll be damned if I can find any in my area. Even wanting to order online all that comes up are old probably expired cases selling for 70 or 80 bucks.

These? My grandma used to love them as well. I didn't mind a cup once in awhile either.I don't remember the brand name but does anyone remember those canned coffee drink powders that you made using water? They were in a rectangular container with a plastic lid and had different flavors like cappuccino. Man, those were the shit growing up and I don't think I've seen them in years.
