17. Hi-C Ecto-Cooler

Launched in 1987 to promote “Ghost Busters,” this drink was only supposed to last as long as the series. It was so successful, however, that the juice box flavor survived the series’ 1991 cancellation. The green ghost Slimer left the box sometime around 1997, but Minute Maid did not discontinue the product until 2001.

18. McDonald's McDLT

18. McDonald's McDLT

The McDLT was pretty brilliant. It was a deconstructed quarter-pound burger with the lettuce, tomato, and mayo all served in separate parts of a double-sided polystyrene container to “Keep the hot side hot, and the cool side cool.” That way you could avoid hot lettuce and tomato oiled down by burger grease and mayo. The item was discontinued some time in the ’90s.

19. OK Soda

Despite the slogan “Things are going to be OK,” the cola-flavored Ok Soda was discontinued in 1995, only two years after being released, though it did have a small cult following.

20. Wonka Oompas

20. Wonka Oompas

Now used as the name for its fruit candy, Wonka Oompas were once a chocolate and peanut butter candy produced in the ’70s and ’80s.
