Whatever Happened to . . .

Every now and then I wonder what happened to a product that seemed to just vanish without a trace.  Here are some products I enjoyed but went “ghost”:

Remember this “jewel” ? I was a big Nokia fan back in the day and had owned a couple of their phones. Nokia was the “Chevrolet” of cellular phones, mine had fallen down stairs, did somersaults in store parking lots and not so much as a button missing. This Lumia was close but no cigar.

As a hobby photographer, I primarily use my phone instead of  another camera because one it’s always with me anyway. I can appreciate where Nokia was going but a cellphone is for calling first and then pictures.

Remember this one??

I forgot about these ! ! I liked that they were made with flour, maybe that was the problem since most tortilla like chips are made with corn. Memories (le sigh).

and now . .

I introduced this fragrance many years ago to my daughter and she fell in love. Vera has now branched into home decor and weddings and hasn’t made fragrances in over 2 years much to the dismay of my “Song Bird”.  It was great while it lasted.

Finally, this product:

I loved these, especially for handling raw meat. They were really absorbant and you just toss them when you’re done.


Reminiscing until next time.
