In this thread, post those food and drink items you used to get, and STILL get, but used to be a HELL of a lot better, for whatever reason. And state your reasons why! I'll start with some examples:
Nowadays, Monster Munch are a shadow of their former selves... tiny, less dense, and with FAR less coat-yer-fingers-in-brown-powder flavouring. Also, no more spaghetti flavour (blue packet)! Travesty.
Not only are the shells less dense (to abide by cruel health laws of pure evil), but now it's packed in this bizarre hexagonal prism container... without a collectible pop-top with a letter on it. Unacceptable.
Okay, post some more, you guys, I know how much you love to reminisce with me, and also the sheer passion for complaining! So what're YOUR foods and drinks that you can still buy, but are shadows of their former selves?
Tooty-Frooties. I used to have a kind-of addiction to them in Year 8-9 (back in 1997-1999), but a couple of years later they changed the recipe, and they haven't been the same since. They're not as sweet for one thing, and the green ones taste strange.
PS. I remember when ice lollies like Feasts and Mini-Milks and Twisters had jokes on the sticks... some were actually quite good, if I remember right. Wish they'd bring them back!

Pretty much everything since the "healthy eating" revolution...fewer e-numbers, making sure there isn't 3482394g of fat in the product, removal of shameless advertising and toys aimed at children...bad times.
