2007 Departures: Grape Pop-Tarts and other junk food faves

Gosh DANG, the pusher man.

In general, it's best to avoid developing addictive relationships with junk food. The Unwritten Law of the Marketing Universe seems to dictate that as soon as a product develops a cult-like following, the company making the product ceases production.

The companies will tell you it's because of low demand. That's of little succor to the many thousands of people who buy and consume the beloved product. Call it the twisted troll logic of supply and demand. In a market of multi-millions, a few hundred thousand fans don't add up to economies of scale.
