    Uh Huh, and It Really Burns My Llama

    They used to make these awesome low fat choc chip cookies when I was a kid, they were wonderful and the only cookies I was allowed once mum found them. The were around for like a year and then they removed them from our supermarket. Then the company stopped making them at...

    I Think It's Unfair Competition

    Some things I can understand.  When Starbucks pulled their heavenly elixir Chantico from the market, it was because most coffee drinkers just didn't have the taste for drinking a melted dark chocolate bar.  I have unusual tastes, and I accept that. But when Campbell's...

    It's Happened So Many Times

    I can't even remember everything I used to like that is no longer sold at the store. Most recently it's been my favorite *gasp* lotion. I've had to give up lip balms, food, drinks, shampoos, you name it, they've taken it from me. It's so not fair. The thing that's really...

    Whoopass, For One...

    Let's see. There's Whoopass, the best energy drink there ever was- based on a Japanese formula. Then there's Kombucha Wonder Drink, which I have actually found occasionally afterwards, but it was in cans, and the metal made it taste nasty. Then, SoBe, oh good lord! First they got...

    Where Did You Go?

    My Skittles Bubblegum is gone  D: It used to be everywhere but nowadays I can't find it no matter what store I'm in.  That was the only bubblegum I really liked and it was wonderful because I can't eat Skittles, so it was like vicariously eating them.  But now it...

    This infuriates me. A good example of this occurred a year ago, when I went into a bath and body shop, and purchased a bottle of Chocolate fondue perfume. I loved it so much, that I went back to get another bottle when it ran out, only to discover that they no longer sold it...

    It's nice to know I'm not alone! It is even worse when you move to another country and think 'Oh no, X product that I always use is not available here!' Miraculously you find it, but aren't happy for long because the next time you go to buy it, you find it has vanished and is...

    Every Time I Find Something I Like...

    Every time I find something in a shop that I like, the shop decides after a few days/weeks/months that it's not worth selling any more. Don't you just hate that?

    I Am the Curse!

    It never fails! Once I find what I really love, it's gone. *POOF* Just like that! Is it in the next aisle?  Maybe they just moved it. NO Are they temporarily out of stock & awaiting shipments? NO IT'S JUST GONE!  DEAL WITH IT! :(

    They had a perfume several years ago called Perceive. They carried it in both men's and women's lines. I loved it. It's my favorite. However, they decided to discontinue the women's line, but kept the men's. I'm sad, I can't find anything comparable to it that I like. Although...
