I remember being in high school there was a vending machine area close to the cafeteria where you could get a soda from Pepsi and Coke and snacks from Tom's.  You don't see much of the Tom's snacks any more.  I use to get their version of Doritos and Peanut Roll.  Some things were better then.

Bar None is probably my favorite. Not sure if they still make the $100,000 Bar, but that one was good too. Hershey's made a bar in the 90s that had mint cookies in it, I could not get enough of that one.

OMG yes, I love that so much more than the regular. It seems to be available, then not, then available again.

 

I guess it's where you look, the product locator has them available at places like Family Dollar, also pharmacies and supermarkets. But one of the places that's listed as having it is the store where I work. There is no peanut butter Twix there. I go down the candy aisle when I check the doors. :)

 

I have just learned there is a seasonal gingerbread Twix. Please kill me.

The ruler on the wrapper was a stroke of genius.

Peanut Butter Twix, Peanut Butter Snickers are two of my favorites, but I think they are seasonal or something. 

Another one I really loved but no longer seems to be available is Dark Chocolate M&M's.  Purple bag.  Never can find them anymore.

Not a candy bar, but extinct nonetheless:

I can't think of a candy bar that I used to like, but I DO know a certain restaurant that I still wish was around; Hot 'n Now.

Best fries and olive burgers ever! (My family and I admittedly didn't like the milkshakes though.)

And sad too, because it went out of business when I was only seven.

Actually, I think they do (I forgot), but am pretty sure it's sibling thingamajig is not.

Watchamacallits are one of my favorites, Wal-Mart sells them. I don't remember Thingamajigs at all. :(

You probably have some fantastic sweets over there we've never heard about I'll bet. Tell us what we're missing.

We are missing the Cadbury fruit and nut bar, my mother in law used to give me one of those for the holidays and my birthday and I miss it so much.

 

Also Rowsdower, Aero bars are today's Chocolite. The mint ones are aces.
