Gee, perhaps it might have to be that I've finally found food that gives me the "WOW" factor and leaves me craving for more but the next time I go up to the shops to get some more either the following scenarios play out;

A: The particular store doesn't carry that item but one of their other stores across town does but isn't worth making the drive over just to get said item.
B: The item gets discontinued, replaced with something where quality has hit rock bottom and no longer wants me having more.
C: Item gets discontinued outright with no replacement.
D: It isn't as good as I had it the first time.
E: Just by luck the store does carry it but is out of stock at said store.

For example I got these Buffalo style chicken tenders the other day from ALDI and it's probably the most spiciest buffalo style meat I've had in a while close to Woolworths Buffalo wings in terms of spice but I visited a different ALDI store yesterday on the way home from work and they only had regular (Non-flavored). Bummer as I was planning to get some again.

Companies that bow down to a small minority of a small minority group to change the name of their product. Let's hope most will boycott them.

@ScaniaGrenda I know what you mean. You find a favourite product and they inevitably get discontinued, altered or they stop stocking it. I'm mourning the loss of so many products like SPC ratatouille canned tomatoes I used to pour on my pasta with fried salami. I still miss it to this day.
Another is this imported Asian Ayam brand canned fried mackarel in chilli. I used to mix that with canned tomato to pour on pasta and it was equal favourite with the aforementioned Ratatouille tomato with salami.
Ayam of Malaysia discontinued the product about 20 years ago. Bastards!

Speaking of discontinued food Swift, It was a time I was a younger person (talking under 10's, can't remember specific age for the life of me not that it matters) and I use to love Arnotts Tiny teddies (honey ones?). Well apparently one day they discontinued them and I was disappointed, they got rid of their most popular flavor and replaced it with ???.

Anyway I have this faint memory of my grandmother saying because of her they re-added the Honey Tiny Teddies back onto the market, whether that is true or not I can't confirm. I must've had them once after that and then never again and outgrew them and no longer had a desire for them.

What I eat is thankfully not affected by the common discontinuation, just more so difficulty of trying to obtain the 2nd time around or the next time I buy them their not as good as the first time I've had them. Anyway I got more of those Buffalo style tenders today so I'm pleased & set for the weekend.

I hear ya, ScaniaGrenda! I hate it when something comes on the market and it tastes so good then they discontinue it due to "poor sales!" - Mum is the same. This is the same with certain cleaning products......

Often these products returns years down the track as 'new products'.

My wife and I often comment on these products that disappear " Discontinued due to popular demand ". Happens so often.
I was particularly fond of a product "McCormicks Rosemary & Garlic Wedges' a spice powder flavouring that I'd put over vegetables and wedges that I'd bake. Was just under $2 and was a great flavour topping. Suddenly disappeared off the planet !

Reading these last few emails got me worked up again, so I've sent off an email to the manufacturer.

Thanks for stirring me into action.
