    I have a long (totally causal :hmm:) history of finding some foodstuff or other that I can't get enough of, only to have it vanish from all shelves within a 12-month or less.

    Latest to go are Sainsbury's vegetarian hotdogs :( All the flavour of rubbishy hotdog goodness without worry of lips and arse.

    What are you hankering after that no one else wants?

    I would!

    Where can I find them? (Tell me at risk of them not being available for much longer :D )

    Are lentils unpopular?

    Kale, I can see (though I like it).

    I love them! :D
    To be fair though, I like most meals in a sandwich.

    I don't like cauliflower at all but that is just personal taste.

    The 'unpopular' foods I like are more junk foods like the Peperami, Pot Noodles and such. Not sure if they are popular in terms of availability and such?

    Tesco's have disappeared as well :hmm:
    I tried Fry's vacuum packed ones from Sainsburys and they're rank. :(

    a_chap When the world came apart, where were you?

    Plenty of things I used to love when I was a nipper now seem to be unpopular:
    • tripe and onions
    • devilled kidneys
    • cod roe
    • chitlins
    • soused herrings
    • jellied eels
    • whelks
    • brawn

    RubyToogood can't remember what goes here

    Those were basically the same thing as these: Tivali vegetarian hotdogs
    Available from a supermarket or wholefoody place near you.
    I should point out they are of Israeli origin if this is something you are aiming to avoid, but I suspect the Sainsburys own brand ones were too.

    The Sainsbury's ones were my alternative to Tivali.

    I don't eat meat any more but in memory I miss goblin hamburgers - the ones from a tin with gravy, shiptons meat paste and corned beef hash. Classy

    Been thirty odd years since I have. Loved the goblin steamed puddings, more for the pastry really.

    For the US posters: I like scrapple and used to get shit for ordering it at work which didn't bother me one bit.
