Pizzarias Pizza Chips
> Introduced: 1991
> Discontinued: 2000 (?)
> Maker: Keebler

The launch of these Doritos-shaped chips — in Cheese Pizza, Pizza Supreme, and Zesty Pepperoni flavors — was described by Keebler as “the most successful savory snack debut in the company’s history,” generating wholesale revenue of $75 million in their first year. They were discontinued around the time that Kellogg’s bought Keebler. A BringBackPizzarias Facebook group currently has more than 4,842 followers.

Planters P.B. Crisps
> Introduced: 1992
> Discontinued: 1995 (?)
> Maker: Nabisco

These were cookies in the shape of oversized peanuts. There were three flavors — P.B. (peanut butter), Chocolate, and PB&J. A social media campaign is still trying to convince Planters to bring them back.

Reese’s Bites
> Introduced: 1999
> Discontinued: 2004
> Maker: Hershey

Small chocolate-coated spheres of peanut butter — in effect peanut butter cups in a different form — might have sounded like a good idea, but they turned out to be a choking hazard, so were taken off the market.

Reese’s Peanut Butter & Banana Creme Cups
> Introduced: 2007
> Discontinued: 2008
> Maker: Hershey

These were conceived as a tribute to Elvis, based on what was reputed to be his favorite sandwich (peanut butter and bananas), and the packaging bore an image of him — in younger years — with the legend “Live Like the King.”

Reggie! bars
> Introduced: 1978
> Discontinued: 1982
> Maker: Wayne Candies

Similar to turtle candies in appearance and, like turtles, made of chocolate-coated caramel and peanuts, these were originally marketed as Bun Bars. In an effort to boost sales, their maker renamed them in honor of famed New York Yankees slugger Reggie Jackson. In 1982, a year after Jackson left the Yankees, the candy disappeared. It made a brief comeback in 1993 when Jackson was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
