    Yes! As you can tell from the cheesy Ebay photo, mine is Happy Daisy lotion from Bath & Body Works. To my dismay they stopped making it about 4-5 years ago. For awhile it was still offered on from the clearance warehouse, but even that has now stopped. The only place I can now find it is (of course) Ebay and I end up spending $25 - $30 on average for a bottle of it. I have no idea why they stopped making it, the bidding is always fierce for the auctions, so it was obviously popular. Plus, it was one of the few scents B&BW carried that didn't make you smell like some kind of food :)

    I used to love Bath & Body Works tangerine spice lotion. I don't shop there anymore and I think it's because they stop making the products that I like.

    I don't know if Chewy Sprees qualifies in this category, but I just can't find them anymore! It's so sad...

    "Magic blue pills", I think they were Dimeatap decongestants. Yanked off the market because morons were making meth out of them. Cleared my sinuses (blue pills, not the meth) and cured a hangover.

    Crystal Pepsi! That was one of the most unique sodas I ever had, plus it had the cool commercials featuring Van Halen's "Right Now."
    My wife, though, said she thought it tasted like kerosene. I never knew she drank petroleum products!

    Also, I really miss Acorn slippers. They were wool sock-style slippers with a genuine leather sole. I still have my old pair from 20 years ago; my wonderful wife keeps sewing them up for me...

    The Body Shop is notorious for pulling good stuff because they don't have a big enough demand for a particular product...they used to make this line of Ayurvedic products - one was called kapha and it was so great...I still have some of the lotion left...

    Once when I was much younger my mom gave me some make-up she didn't want and one of the items was a wonderful lipstick in a rust color that became my favorite. When it got low I tried to find a new tube of it but the company was french and no longer making that color. I still think about it sometimes when I'm trying to find new lipstick.

    Pepsi in a 16oz glass bottle! I'm sorry, but it just tastes better from a bottle than from a can or god-help-us a plastic container.

    Every damn Nike shoe I've ever liked gets changed as soon as I wear them out. If you like it, buy two or three cause you'll never see it agin.

    Blueberry pop tarts without the frosting. All I can find without the frosting are strawberry (sorry, I will not do imitators).

    Tootsie Pop made a product that came in a roll like lifesavers but were essentially tootsie pops without the stupid stick pointing out of your mouth at people.

    yup, "Surface" cologne...the best ever...I've been buying a new bottle onlinee every couple years when I find one...

    Oh, I forgot about Wacky Wafers. They used to come in a roll like Sweet Tarts. I so loved those things. I bought a roll every day in college! I still ocassionaly see them in a weird shaped box, but they are strange little shapes and you get about 1/4 of them you used to get in the roll. I still buy them, but I always feel like I'm getting ripped off.

    Always tennis shoes. I get trail running shoes because they are amazing and I can make them last for years but when I go to find a new pair...sigh.

    Also clear Pepsi. My mom would only give me a quarter in my lunch except on pizza days. I used to save my pizza money from monday and spread it out over the week so I could buy it at lunch. They should bring it back for an anniversary or something.

    Oooh. Happy Daisy was my first scent! Try finding it on the BBW website- sometimes you get strangely lucky. As for why...probably not popular enough, and BBW was still in its infancy if I recall. We're constantly adding new frangrances, but none new have been discontinued discontinued in the two years I've been there. As for non-food- I can suggest plenty...
