Tasty Toobs 

The tangy, tomato-flavoured chips were one of the most memorable food symbols of the 1970s, and brought back into production in 2007 after a six-year gap.

But they were then discontinued again by Smith’s in 2015 following the lack of consumer demand.

Australian cricketer Shane Warne took to Twitter to launch a social media campaign calling for the cheesy treats to return, with the hashtag #BringBackToobs.

‘Love toobs and they keep disappearing,’one social media user said.

The triangular icy treats were once a fixture in Australian freezers in the 1990s, but The Daily Juice Co. ceased production of the product in August 2016

Sunnyboys 

The triangular icy treats were once a fixture in Australian freezers in the 1990s, but The Daily Juice Co. ceased production of the product in August 2016.

Their flavours included Glug Cola, Razz Raspberry and Orange Explosion but were removed by the shelves after a ‘sustained reduction in consumer demand’.

‘Best summer treat ever – I have one left in my freezer no-one is allowed to eat,’ one fan of the iconic popsicle wrote.

The ice creams were another 1970s Australian staple, but have also been removed from production in recent years.

Coming in strawberry and caramel flavour, the ice creams had a marshmellow centre and also featured among the most fondly remembered sweet treats this week

‘Bring back my favourite ice cream Triple treat,’ one person wrote, although they wondered whether the treat constituted a snack.

Space Food Sticks 

Inspired by the first solid food eaten by a NASA astronaut, Space Food Sticks were popular in the US before being produced in Australia at a more limited level

Production stopped though in 2014, and Australians were quick to name the extra-terrestrial snack among their favourites.

The Morning Show co-host Kylie Gillies remarked the packaging brought all the memories back, while the food made numerous appearances on commenters’ lists.

Choo Choo Bars

The strong-tasting snack was chose by many of those giving their list of treats they want to bring back, but some revealed they are actually still available in some shops.

‘You can still get them from The English Sweet Shop at Hunter Valley Gardens (in New South Wales),’ one person said.

Milo Bar

It was replaced by Milo’s Energy Snack Bars – cereal pieces dipped in white chocolate – but social media users were quick to call for its predecessor’s return.

‘Bring back the original compacted milo bar,’ one person said.

Jupiter Bars

The chewy caramel, peanut and rice cereal bars are another victim of the manufacturer’s chop.

The bar’s popularity meant it could be had recently on an online lolly shop for the hefty price of $34, but even that stock has now sold out too.

‘Bring back the Jupiter bars – they were so yum!’ one user wrote.  

IN-CRED-I-BITES

Few know the name, but the minute you show an Australian the classic green box the memories come flooding back.

While they were beloved by many, it remains unclear when exactly In-Cred-I-Bites officially left our lives.
