9 Discontinued Canned Foods You'll Never See Again

Whether you're stocking up on shelf-stable foods during the pandemic or you just want to have something on hand for the days you don't feel like cooking, canned food is a pantry staple. 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 the canned-food aisle, not everything that comes in a tin has stood the test of time. Here are some of the most outrageous discontinued canned foods that have ever existed.

Pumpkin Spice Spam

This was a limited-edition flavor that came out in 2019. And while Pumpkin Spice Spam sounds pretty horrifying, it apparently sold out in a matter of hours! Maybe the people at Hormel were before their time. Check out the most popular pumpkin spice foods on the shelves now.

Progresso Soups

To be clear, you'll still see Progresso's canned soups at the store—there just won't be as many options as there were before the pandemic. In July, Bloomberg reported that Progresso has cut 40 types of soup from its offerings. And while the full list of discontinued flavors isn't available, it might include one of your favorites.

Canned mac and cheese may not sound appetizing to you. But in some circles, there's serious nostalgia for this canned delicacy. If you're looking for the best boxed mac-and-cheese, we tried a few of them and this was our shocking favorite.


Trader Joe's Vegetable Chili

We have it on good authority that Trader Joe's has discontinued several of its chili offerings, including the fan-favorite veggie chili. Fortunately, you can still get vegan chili cans from Amy's Organic.

Whistles & Daisys

These snack crackers, released at the same time as Bugles in the 1960s, came in cans as well as in boxes (and yes, they were spelled Daisys and not Daisies). Shaped like flowers and train-conductor whistles, they didn't stand the test of time, although Bugles are still around today.


Dinty Moore Meatball Stew
