These have been described as “poppable” versions of traditional Hershey candies like peanut butter cups and chocolate almonds.

It was an experiment away from candy bars and towards treats you can eat on the go.

They were marble-sized pieces, always sold in a small tubular bag.

Most of the line was discontinued in 2006, Mashed reported.

A discontinued grocery account on Twitter is dedicated to creating snacking memories based on foods people loved but are no longer selling.

The account made a post via Hershey’s Bites, which mentioned they were discontinued due to choking hazards.

In the comments section of the tweet, they expressed their loss for the candy line.

“I felt like these were overpriced and tasted a little different than what I wanted, but they were worth devouring,” one comment read.

The account responded with their personal favorite way to eat the posted treat.

“They tasted great mixed in a bucket of popcorn at the movies,” the response said.

Some people were surprised that the candy was removed from the shelves so long ago.

“Here’s one I didn’t know was out of production,” one tweeted.

“That’s why I haven’t seen her lately,” echoed another.

One person mentioned the same issue with Hershey’s mini line, which has the exact same concept as the bite pieces, just with a different name.

The line includes mini peanut butter cups and so-called Hershey’s drops, which are marble-sized chunks of chocolate.

“How were they a greater choking hazard than these?” A tweet was read as photos of the Hershey airdrops were shown.

The company launched a new line of similar candies that are still sold under that name today "Mini" instead of "bites"
