Things that aren’t around anymore that should still be a thing

Starburst California Fruits

starburst

Not Baja.  Just California.

It was quite possibly the greatest combination of Starburst flavors ever.  Red Cherry, Strawberry-Watermelon, Wild Berry, Raspberry.  It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about the delicious juicy-ness.  Admittedly, it wouldn’t be amiss to replace red cherry with mango melon or kiwi banana (speaking of delicious but culled Starburst flavors…), but really.  How do you even try to improve on that bit of awesomeness?  It’s like a fruit-flavor all-star list.  This team could win a candy world series!  And no one remembers that it was ever a thing.  How?  How did that happen world?

I remember writing a strongly worded note about 10 years ago about how Starbursts fans around the world were falling into a state of depression without their California fruits.  Clearly mine was the only letter they received.

But I still remember you Starburst California.  I keep alive the flame of faith that one day Mars Corp will bring your flavors of deliciousness back to store shelves everywhere.

Stay juicy my friends.
