A few years back I went looking for a product called "Vita Crunch" which was a fairly high sugar rolled oats based muesli cereal. It had gone. RIP.
Since I returned to NZ in 2013 I have been looking for a product called Gregg's Seameal Custard, also gone. Not quite ready to RIP this one, yet.
1861 Gregg's was formed here in NZ. I submitted a comment to them via a form and got a copy in my email, which concluded with "Cerebos Greggs NZ" and something about Australia, which made a light bulb go on: It had been sold! Shame on you ancestors of the original Gregg from Northern Ireland! Now it's owned by a Japanese holding company! No longer personal, no one cares.

A link to a current "no stock" page, will be dead in future, I have a copy saved: http://shop.countdown.co.nz/Shop/Produc ... ode=273855
A few photos of old advertising for this stuff, and how it finally looked:
These companies don't seem to grasp that they hold the keys to aspects of our lives and culture that no one else can replace.
