While in the cooking aisle of my grocery store checking out packaged cookies, I was reminded of how much I miss Circus Animal Cookies, which got discontinued last year when Mother's Cookies filed for bankruptcy (although Kellogg's has said it plans to reintroduce some favorites). In hard times, many products — from Archway Cookies to Zima coolers — have gone the way of Crystal Pepsi. What discontinued products do you still crave?
Good news for you Lush lovers out there: The British fresh-cosmetics company is temporarily bringing some of its discontinued products out of retirement. This is fantastic development if, for instance, you've been hoarding your carnation-infused Potion body lotion long past the "sell by" date. (Really, though, if you've smelled this stuff, you know why I keep a stockpile!)
You can order these fan favorites now, and Lush will whip up a bunch of fresh batches for delivery in September. These oldies but goodies are on sale only through Monday, June 25, when they'll head back to the body-care retirement home.
