We all have items we absolutely love and buy all the time. Then the inevitable happens, and the item is discontinued. You find a replacement, but it’s just not the same. Or you reminisce back in time to a cool gadget you wish still was around to purchase. According to an online poll, these are the top-voted items that people would love to see hit the market again.

“Original recipe Hostess treats, Ding Dongs, Twinkies, Hostess cupcakes – they used to be trashy good, now they’re awful. Add in Little Debbie’s stuff, too, the same thing,” somebody divulged.

“I won’t buy spaghetti sauce in plastic containers. It’s bitter. I do wonder what we’re ingesting with all the plastics in use today. I still have glass peanut butter jars I use for leftovers. They impart no taste,” a user explained.

6. Halloween Buckets

“I would love for McDonald’s to bring back the plastic trick-or-treat buckets that the Happy Meals used to come in. They even had a Halloween cookie cutter in the lid,” someone mentioned.
