Man. Will someone end 2016 already? I’ve been muttering these words to myself every day since January, and, thankfully, I won’t have much longer to say them. The year’s almost over, after all. But what a year it’s been! Taking my idols left and right, celebs who gave me my first big break and taught me it was okay to be weird. Terrible.

I’m afraid that food has not been immune to the great death rattle of 2016, either. It's a year that's seen many culinary casualties—so crank up some Sarah McLachlan tunes and take a trip through all these products we lost in 2016. Keep in mind that many products are discontinued without formal announcements; so long has their death march been that they just saunter off into oblivion with no one caring.

The McWrap

Wraps from McDonald's? Nope. Not happening.

Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Golden Honey Nut Flakes

"Where is My Husband's Crunchy Nut Flakes Cereal?" asked Barb to Kellogg's 10 months ago. Barb, it's gone. I'm sorry. Ugh.

Firestone Walker's Double Jack, Opal and Wookey Jack Beers

"Dwindled from distribution." Folded. You're telling me that two jacks couldn't even save these? Despicable.

$300 Keurig KOLD Soda Machines

"Hasta la vista," as they say.

Hi-C Ecto Cooler

Well, this once-defunct juicebox drink was briefly revived for two seconds to commemorate July's Ghostbusters reboot. And now, in a matter of days, it's going to be discontinued all over again. Incredible how history repeats itself.

Never had a chance.

The Chick-fil-A Spicy Chicken Biscuit

Not so "spicy" anymore, eh?

Awful news.

Pringles Chile Y Limon

It’s a shame, really.

Who didn’t love some of these Cadbury bad boys straight from Heathrow Airport? Well now they’re gone, so bye.

Sorry to see you go.

Zest and Habitant mustard pickles from Canada

Loved these cuties. Tiny things, prickly, floating inside a jar like wondrous creatures.

Campbell’s Fresh Brewed Keurig Cup Soups

Single-serve soup from a Keurig? If I'd heard of it before, I'd have asked you to sign me up, and pronto! I guess it's too late now, though. Didn't make it in time.

Hormel Spam Snacks

Spam snacks, spam snacks. Dried bits of spam, spiced with teriyaki or bacon. Now decaying in a dumpster. The worst.

Ugh.

We're bound to have missed something. What discontinued food do you miss most? Let us know in the comments.
