Have you ever had a favourite product that just sort of, disappeared? From the stores, I mean. Boy, does that ever drive me crazy. We have had several disappear lately, so if you are from Ontario (Canada) and you know where I can find these things, please let me know!
My boys like waffles and pancakes for breakfast. Not something I really want to start their day off with, sugar and white flour, but I have found in the past Eggo Plus Fibre waffles. I used to be able to find them in three different flavours; cinnamon, plain and blueberry. Now, I can't find any at all!! I don't get it. I really thought the trend towards eating more whole grain foods was really picking up, so why get rid of this product? Perhaps it's just where I live, but I can't find them in any of the grocery chains around here. And I know, just because it says plus fibre doesn't make it whole grain, but it does make it a healthier choice than the regular kind.
DH really enjoys the Nature Valley Maple Flavour granola bars. I can find many other flavours of Nature Valley granola bars, but these specific ones seem to have disappeared as well.
L will occasionally eat tomato soup. I got him onto this because he liked the Heinz brand of Spiderman soup. It is essentially tomato soup with Spiderman shaped pasta in it. Now, of course, I can't find it anywhere! I can find Heinz Spiderman Pasta, but this is not soup, you see.
Occasionally, I will pick up So Nice soy milk, usually around Christmas when they sell their version of egg nog, called Noel Nog. I like it because I'm lactose intolerant, and I've not yet found a lactose-free version of regular egg nog. However, I used to come across the same brand of soy milk with other flavours such as cappuccino, or chai. I know, yuck, soy milk, but these were quite good. Alas, I never see these around anymore.
Well, that's my rant for the morning. Not terribly interesting, but I felt like writing my annoyance about these things.
