10 Things That Aren’t As Good As They Used To Be

Can you think of anything that used to be much better than it is today? I can – the Mc. Rib, for one, pickles? What were they thinking? 

Nonetheless, recently someone asked, “What isn't as good as it used to be?” Here are the top-voted responses. 


“Christmas. It doesn't help that stores start putting up Christmas items in October. By the time December rolls around, I'm so sick of it already,” admitted one user.  

Entenmann's Dessert

“Entenmann's Desserts,” one suggested, “Their coffee cake used to be so good.” Another shared, “They were bought out years ago. Same with Stella Doro cookies – bought by Nabisco and started using all artificial ingredients.” 

Home Appliances

Someone stated, “Home appliances designed to fail every five to ten years with the repair being unfeasible.” Another added, “Kitchen appliances. They used to last 20 years or more. Now you are lucky to get seven or eight.” 


“Toys – most are plastic pieces of trash that fall apart after a week of use. Don't get me started on how EVERY girl's toy plays music now and needs batteries weekly,” shared one user. 

Cable TV

One person expressed, “Cable television. Back in the eighties and nineties, it was awesome! I remember at around ten o'clock or so, on Disney Channel, they had Vault Disney, and you got to watch all the Wonderful old World of Disney shows like Davy Crockett and the old movies.” 


“At the risk of sounding like some stereotypical boomer, music. Most music in the top charts in the West is just trash nowadays,” claimed one person.
