    Your Favorite Things You Can't Get Anymore

    Used to love a candy called Delfa Rolls. It was like a big sheet of strawberry licorice rolled up and cut into four mini rolls.

    I cannot find them anywhere, even on the internet.

    Anything you used to love but can't get anymore?

    Pom poms made specifically for ice skates.

    And, come to that, those little pom-pom people with the googly eyes and the feet that stuck onto your desk.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I used to have a fondness for Bar None candy bars. Apparently I was the only one, they didn't last very long.

    Oh, and one more you can get in Canada but you will not find in the states: Ketchup Potato Chips. They are surprisingly good.

    Havana Joe shoes, but only because I can't get them in this area. I have wide feet with high arches. My wife says I have "Fred Flintsone" feet. Most shoes don't fit me and the ones that do aren't very comfortable (other than New Balance sneakers). These were the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn, but they're expensive ($150+). Unfortunately, I have yet to find a shoe under $100 that doesn't feel like foot binding torture.

    I also liked marathon bars.

    Affordable good pitchers for small-market teams.

    Heath Bars. Do they even make them anymore?
    "Normal" Baseball cards. There are too many ultra sets and such, last I looked. And last I looked, I could not find a simple "Upper Deck" pack. And, hey - where's my freaking gum!!??

    Made me do a Google search and found the below site that shows a list of discontinued candies. Dom's Delfa Rolls made the list. Vatican mentioned pom poms for skates, but there is also a Pom Pom candy that is on the discontinued list.

    It's a bigger difference for us than it is for you, believe me.

    I'm listing mine in reference to baseball

    1. Watching a Reds team knowing that they are just "being competitive in a VERY tough NL Central" (sarcasm in a goofy old white nerdy businessman's voice) instead of watching a Reds team that is playing for it all!

    2. Listening to Joe Knuxhal instead of this Stewart ****** they hired to replace him.

    3. Seeing Pete Rose and Barry Larkin in a Reds uniform (granted they can't play anymore but I still wish they were managers or something)

    4. A power hitter who could hit 20 homeruns and that was considered one of the best in the game.

    5. Doubleheaders

    6. Marge Schott and her dog!

    7. Lou Pinella or Davey Johnson as the Reds manager

    8. Kids who played baseball from early on a summer morning until their mothers called them in for dinner. Now they just play that stupid PS and Wii

    9. Music supergroups. Why doesn't rock have the GNRs, Black Sabbaths, Van Halens, or Led Zeppelins anymore?

    10. Watching a race on Sundays that had the black #3 driving around the track, a race in the south, and when cars could just bang the hell outta each other and not be penalized.

    Man, I sometimes wish I had the constitution and moral depravity needed to take on a sugar daddy.

    Speaking of which -- do they still still sugar baby candies?
