7 Holiday Foods That Have Vanished From Grocery Stores

Don't say we didn't warn you.

While the holiday season tends to be a time for plenty of cooking and baking, sometimes there's joy in store-bought treats, too. From limited-edition Oreos to peppermint bark everything, the winter months bring plenty of joy to store shelves.

But for every new product that hits your local grocery store, there could be another thing that vanishes from store shelves. Here are a few foods you won't see this holiday season—don't say we didn't warn you.

Gingerbread Pop-Tarts

Back in 2017, Pop-Tarts announced that the beloved holiday flavor was no longer available. Another holiday-themed Pop-Tarts option you won't find is the limited-edition Grinch Pop-Tarts, which were really just strawberry pastries with green icing.

Tillamook won our vanilla ice cream taste test, thanks to the brand's creamy take on the classic flavor. But if you're looking for a holiday Tillamook treat in the freezer aisle, you might be disappointed. Tillamook confirmed that the White Chocolate Peppermint Bark ice cream has been discontinued, to fans' chagrin.


Pepperidge Farm Frozen Pot Pies

Is there anything more comforting than a warm pot pie on a cold winter's day? Pepperidge Farm is leading the stuffing game, but once upon a time, Pepperidge Farm made frozen pot pies, too. Sadly, the savory treats have long been discontinued.


Pepperidge Farm Banana Nut Cookies

Another holiday staple is Pepperidge Farm cookies—there's just something comforting about dunking a Milano into a mug of hot cocoa. But not every Pepperidge Farm treat has stuck around; the banana nut cookies are no longer on store shelves.


Terry's All-Gold Chocolates

Fans of British chocolate will be disappointed to hear that Terry's All-Gold has been discontinued. As one lover of the dark chocolates put it on Twitter, "how dare they?" If you want to snag a box before they're gone for good, they're available from British Chocolate Direct.


Twinings Nettle & Peppermint Tea

Another discontinued British favorite is this Twinings tea, which the company confirmed has been discontinued. There are still plenty of other peppermint teas out there, but the Twinings version had plenty of devoted fans.
