Some things in life are just given: Sandwiches are better with mayo, and ketchup and mustard are classic hot dog toppings. But not every condiment is as classic as yellow mustard or ranch dressing. Sometimes, brands have tried to improve upon the classic condiment offerings—and failed along the way.

We're taking a look back at some of the discontinued condiments that have been on store shelves or at restaurants over the years. How many of these do you remember?

And for more nostalgia, check out these 15 Classic American Desserts That Deserve a Comeback.

Pico de Gallo is a classic sauce to pair with tacos, but you won't find it at Taco Bell. Instead, you'll have to opt for the chain's mild and hot sauce packets, or you can top your order with guacamole or sour cream.

Trader Joe's Organic Sriracha Ranch Dressing

Another fan-favorite TJ's offering that's gone the way of the dinosaur is this spicy ranch dressing bottle. It was the best of both worlds—hot sauce and ranch—but you can always add a squirt of sriracha to some regular ranch if you're missing this one.
