The Aztec was basically a less sweet version of the Mars bar, it was made up of a similar combination of chocolate, nougat, and caramel but the sugar content was a little less.
It had serious substance, but it was just not as good as the Mars bar, which had the same ingredients. The Aztec bar deserved a better fate but tragically, it faded into oblivion a few years after its arrival.
Upon the first bite, the Marathon bar tasted like any other candy bar. Coated in chocolate and with a chewy caramel filling, there was one thing different about this bar - how long it took to eat it.
While eating and even after you were done eating, each bite would stick to your teeth for a week. After less than a decade on the market, skimpy sales triggered the discontinuation of the Marathon bar in 1981.
Astros were truly fantastic. They were chocolatey and crunchy, but a totally different beast than M&M's. Cadbury's Astros were little orbs of biscuits covered in milk chocolate and a crispy shell.
But evidently, these weren't beloved enough, because they were taken off the shelves sometime around the late 90s. What was the cause? Most likely, they just weren't as good or as high publicized as M&M. Sad!
Sometimes the minty flavor of chewing gum doesn't last long but lives on in our memories, through its legacy. This was the case with the Beech-Nut gum, which was an early staple breath freshener that hit the shelves in the early 20th century.
After a few decades, thin slices of gum fell out of favor and were soon discontinued. Nowadays, chewing gum is delivered in little bite sizes that come in foil blister packs.
Another fallen comrade in the long, storied history of candy bars. The Whiz bar first appeared in stores in the 1920s as a chocolate-coated marshmallow bar. It relied on slick advertisements that consisted of catchy tunes and a five-cent price tag.
Even though Whiz Bars didn't stand the test of time, they did bring about a revolution. The head food technologist behind Whiz Bars went on to invent an apparatus that totally changed the candy-making game forever.
