9 Discontinued Canned Foods You'll Never See Again
Whether you're stocking up on shelf-stable food during the pandemic or just wanting something on hand for those days when you don't feel like cooking, canned food is a staple in the pantry. Some canned options like tuna or beans can be included in healthy recipes. Others, like canned soup, are often loaded with sodium and preservatives.
And while it's hard to imagine a grocery store without a canning aisle, not everything that comes in a can has proven itself. Here are some of the most outrageous canned products ever.
Don't miss out on these 15 classic American desserts that are deserving of a comeback.

Progresso soup flavors
To be very clear, you will still see Progressos canned soups in the store - there just aren't as many options as there were before the pandemic. In July, Bloomberg reported that Progresso had removed 40 types of soup from its range. And while the full list of flavors discontinued isn't available, it may contain one of your favorites.
Smurfs Chef Boyardee
Chef Boyardee is still on the shelves, but the Smurfs are a thing of the past.
Campbell's Pepper Pot Soup
Cans of Campbell's soup
Campbell discontinued this soup years ago, but you can still find many recipes for Philadelphia pepper pot soup on food blogs. We love this pepper pot soup recipe from The Spruce Eats.
Franco American Macaroni and Cheese
Macaroni and cheese
Canned mac and cheese may not sound appetizing to you. But there is serious nostalgia for this canned delicacy in some circles.
Trader Joe's Vegetable Chili
Chipotle chilli with black beans
We strongly believe Trader Joe's has discontinued some of its chilli offerings, including the fan-favorite vegetarian chilli. Fortunately, you can still get vegan chilli tins at Amy's Organic.
Whistles & Daisies
Hornhorn snack in the serving bowl
Launched at the same time as Bugles in the 1960s, these snack crackers came in both cans and boxes (and yes, they were daisies, not daisies). Shaped like the flowers and pipes of train drivers, they have not stood the test of time, although bugles still exist today.
Dinty Moore Meatball Stew
Cans of Dinty Moore beef stew
You can still find Dinty Moore beef stew, but you'd be hard pressed to find the canned meatball version of this Hormel classic.
