I miss Ludens Honey Cough Drops! I can't believe they're gone. i bought Halls instead, yuck in the extreme! I couldn't get that foul taste out of my mouth.

I think Ludens still makes cherry cough drops. I'll see if I can find those.

Meanwhile, I discovered Ghirardelli's Unsweetened Cocoa. OMG - so much better than Hersheys. I had assumed all cocoa would be the same. (I see Saria coming after me with a bat). I mix it with sugar and milk mmmmm.
How about you? Anything you miss and what have you discovered?
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,

Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
Ricola has a honey throat lozenge.

I miss the original version of BHRG.

Magnum double caramel ice cream bars. Sounds like a condom name though. LOL.

Um, this just made me want cough drops. Cough drops remind me of being a kid.

I miss Alpine White. Also reminds me of being a kid.

4a, mbl, low porosity, normal thickness, fine hair.
I still miss Salon Selectives Loosely Defined. It was the single best hair product ever. It's probably been almost 10 years since it was readily available but I still long for it.

miss that stuff terribly. Also Vidal Sassoon detangling cream rinse.
Curls spiral curl cream. I used that stuff for almost a year, and it was perfect. I got great, consistent results no matter what the weather. I never once felt the need to try anything else.

And then she changed the formula. It was okay after that, but not as good.

And then she stopped selling it all together, and I've refuse to even look at Curls products since.
Eres o te haces?
I miss Sauer spices and extracts. No, it was not the best brand in the world but it was the only brand sold in my local grocery stores for many years. Nothing has tasted the same to me since they pulled them from every store shelf. Even other brands of black pepper seem lacking.

I'm not sure if it was discontinued or if they are still being made and distributed.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

Ooh, and the great new product... Revlon Photoready 3D Volume mascara. I had mentioned, on a mascara thread, that this would be my HG if it were waterproof. The original smudged far too much.

They finally made a waterproof version!!

Almost Home cookies. Those were the food equivalent of crack. They were soft and chewy, unlike most other store brand cookies that are hard and taste like cardboard. They haven't been around in about 20 years and I still miss them.
Fine haired, low density, highly porous curly kinky lady

I always loved their paprika. Potato salad has not been the same without it. Same goes for different cakes with extract. It's not horrible, but its not the same childhood taste.

PSF Gentle Cleansing Castile.

I'll have to come back to the new product part.

I'm going to pretend I didn't read anything about cocoa.
spring1onu and curlypearl like this.
The original Herbal Essence shampoo from back in the 70's. It was horrid for my hair but the smell was so good. I can still smell it.
Cinnamon Bubs Daddy gum. Super hot and flavorful. They might still sell it online but there's no way it tastes like it used to.
I don't think there's anything I miss more that Cover Girl Marathon mascara. Have spent a fortune and have found nothing close.

I love all the different kinds of dark high % cacao chocolate available in any grocery store.
In Western PA
Found NC in 2004. CG since 2-05, going grey since 9-05. 3B with some 3A.
Hair texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
Suave & VO5 cond, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

Fifi, if there's any Sauers stuff you want, put a list together & PM me - I'll gladly get it & send it to you.

Jeep, oh my word, I l.o.v.e.d. the old, dark green Herbal Essence shampoo fragrance! I can still smell it and the old-time Breck shampoo also.

A product I miss is the Herbal Essence Humidity Defying gel that was available when I first joined this site. It was the only hair product that worked for me consistently AND all by itself. Boo.

Completely unrelated to any of the above, a new product I love is Sally Hansen Diamond Flash fast-drying top coat. I *think* missbanjo recommended it on the nail polish thread. Great stuff.
