Beloved discontinued snack could make a comeback as company responds to customers’ demands for its return
A SNACK that quickly became a fan favorite among shoppers may be making a return, according to a response from the article’s creator.
One person who couldn’t get enough of the savory treat recently took to social media to ask the company that used to make them.
The conversation started on Twitter courtesy of AboutFacts Account that has 13.5 million followers and frequently provides quick facts and questions for its audience.
“Which discontinued food/beverage items would you heartily return?”, the verified site tweeted.
A spectator fast answeredcampaigning for General Mills peanut butter boppers.
“@GeneralMills bring them back!” the user pleaded while including an image of the product.
The food company then issued a response that likely gave some fans of the discontinued product hope for the future.
“We will let our team know that you miss her!” wrote the official report from General Mills.
According to the company’s website, Peanut Butter Boppers was first released in July 1985 and went under the Nature Valley brand name.
They were also “available in fudge chip, honey crisp, and peanut crunch flavors.”
The snacks were a peanut butter filling with crunchy outer layers wrapped around it, shaped like a small tree trunk.
However, General Mills described the product with more panache and detail.
“The melt-in-the-mouth snack consisted of a soft, creamy real peanut butter core encased in delicious crunchy toppings and sealed in a foil pouch for freshness,” the company wrote.
Just 90 days after the product’s launch, it accounted for a staggering nine percent of the US snack food market.
It’s unclear when the product was discontinued, but it was sometime before Betty Crocker posted a recipe for the “copycat” version of Peanut Butter Boppers on her website.
It’s unclear if this item will really make a comeback, but General Mills has been made aware that it’s missing, especially for kids growing up in the mid-1980s.
Unfortunately, a few other fan-favorite items from multiple retailers appear to be staying off the shelves for now.
As The US Sun previously reported, Aldi recently confirmed that a few sweet treats have been off the shelves since 2019.
A customer pleaded for the return of the in-store counterfeit Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies.
However, the retailer confirmed that it would not be coming back.
“After a thorough examination, we can confirm that these have been discontinued and are no longer available,” said Aldi.
The same was true of Benton’s Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Kroger also confirmed the discontinuation of its staple Brown Gravy Mix, which infuriated customers.
The sauce mix remains out of stock on Kroger’s website.
Though Kroger shoppers can apparently pick up a pack of house-brand sauce mix for just 50 cents.
