Nabisco has discontinued several kinds of cookies over the years, including certain flavors of Newtons and individual brands such as Cookie Breaks, Swiss Creme Cookies and Kettle Cookies. The Hometown Favorites website lists more than 12 discontinued Nabisco cookie lines as of 2015.
Nabisco, short for the National Biscuit Co., is most famous for cookies such as Oreos and Fig Newtons. The company started as a bakery in Massachusetts in 1792, baking and selling biscuits called "pilot bread" for sailors on sea voyages. Pilot bread has since been discontinued.
Due to strong customer loyalty, classic confections, such as the Fig Newton, have enjoyed success and longevity. The company has experimented with new cookies and crackers, some of which were later discontinued. Newtons, for example, were discontinued in blueberry, apple, cranberry and cherry flavors. Butter Cookies, Cookie Break Cookies, Giggles Vanilla Sandwich Cookies, Kettle Cookies, Melody Cookies, Snaps Cookies, Swiss Creme Cookies and T.J. Bearwich Cookies were introduced, but later discontinued.
Wafers are another Nabisco product, one of the first snacks produced by the company. The Brown Edge Wafer is on the list of discontinued items as of 2015, along with savory chips and crackers such as Cheese Tidbits, Flings, Sip & Chip Snack Crackers and Tuna Twists.
