Where Are They Now?

I tend to get attached to food and beverage items that have a short life.  #MajorBummer

In fact, I’m almost scared to try new things out of fear that they won’t last long.  OR if it’s a restaurant I like, I will go at least once (or twice) a week, alone and with friends, to ensure that the place stays open!

Recently, I was enjoying a “travel pack” of Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups…

 …and after I polished off half the bag in one sitting, I fondly remembered these delights:

I LOVED these!  They also came in mini form.  I wasn’t necessarily a fan of Reese’s Cups (at some point, they changed flavor and I haven’t liked them for awhile) but the cookie portion was INCREDIBLE!!!!  Occasionally you could find me cutting off the chocolate parts and just eating the pb and the cookie.  Or just eating the cookie.

And I can’t help but wonder why they left store shelves and if they’d be back anytime soon.

I’d like to credit myself with brining things back.

In 2012/2013 Caribou Coffee released the Salted Caramel Budino and it was DIVINE.  And short lived. So I kept emailing Caribou Coffee to bring it back.  If I made a purchase and received a survey, I added “bring back the salted caramel budino”.  Well, shortly after the Salted Caramel Budino left, so did 3 of the stores I would frequent.  It was a sad, sad, time.

WELL, the other day, I received this fantastic email:

Enjoy 10% off a real caramel drink

SALTED CARAMEL BUDINO’S ARE BACK!!!!!  And that means that the Caramel High Rise AND Caramel Hot Chocolate options are going to be incredibly tasty as well!  I LOVE that Caribou Coffee first adjusted their vanilla to be REAL vanilla (not some chemical crap) and now they are providing REAL caramel!  I mean that’s just sugar/butter/cream and it is SO WORTH IT!  It really is worth paying a little bit more for quality!


Anything you miss and/or have tried to bring back?  Were you successful?
