    Not sure if the supermarkets are doing these any more but I used to love those frozen yiros.....used to top them up with my own salads and they would make an awesome meal. Haven't had one for years now : (

    Been a few years now but still not happy about the Mountain Dew change, was in the states a few weeks ago and it's great to have the caffeine free option. Just wish we still had it here, anyone know if any retailers sell it?

    Nope. I have not bought a single one since they released that energised crap. I do miss it too, but fuck, there's enough caffeine in every damn thing these days.

    Last I saw that usa foods had some in, it was practically as much in shipping as buying the product. Fuck it.

    Watch Cleetus and get an urge for some bartle skeet, look at store shelf..... ..... ffffffffffffffff uck.

    Some independent grocers get it in still.

    There's actually a really good shop in Canberra that specialises in American food like that. But they charge $22 for a 12 pack of cans :S

    Not too bad considering that's less than $2 a can. usa foods had it at $1.69 / can for 12 then add another $14 shipping. I'd totally snatch that $22 option up if I walked into a shop and they had that.

    Maggie 2 minute noodles, Curry. Can't believe they've killed them off, used to absolutely love them.

    Cadbury Roses. They are gone, replaced with something that has the same name but is nowhere near as good.

    Surprised by that, always thought they were extremely popular.

    So what are they now then?

    Different chocolates, same box. Which ones are different Kafoopsy? Or have they just turned Yuck? Streets cornetto turned yuck, they are revolting now, they used to be nice, now they don't even use proper icecream.

    Agreed, their cones always seem stale too, like they've absorbed too much moisture before they were frozen.

    Don't get me started. The cones used to be the best part. crisp, coated in yummy chocolate on the inside, with the little hunk in the bottom. Now it's like something they've scraped off my shoe after I've been up to the chook house.

    So just a concern about health standards with OS produced foods right?
