I'm coming up on 33 and do not recall Spira either. And I was very much into chocolate as a kid. According to Wikipedia it was initially available only in the North West and then South West before going nationwide in '89. However I suspect it may have been in limited markets if I never saw it.
I wonder if its something to do with food regulations. I'm the same vein there's an acid reflux pill I used to take called ridiatine or something they've recently discontinued that with no reason too, when I tried finding out why I couldn't find anything at all, but it's banned by the FDA in the US.
Could be, I do recall some food additive getting banned by the EU a few years back because it was found to have carcinogenic properties. The sweet and sour sauce we got from the Chinese takeaway became distinctly less red after that.
Carcinogens was something I was thinking too. I don't drive so I'm cutting down on my carcinogens that way, now let me have me damn prawn noodles!

Do they still do those packs of jelly sweets that were shaped like warriors and monsters and things and they were bright blues, greens and reds and just the sight of them were enough to bring on a sugar rush?
Those yoghurts your mention - Onken Frufoo Yoghurt - s always my immediate answer when this question pops up. Also: Spaghetti sauce flavour Monster Munch Kellogg's Banana Bubbles (the cereal that thinks its a milkshake!) I also remember enjoying red Sunny Delight and a green one. And the grandaddy of the all...
I will second the spaghetti sauce Monster Munch! The nearest thing to that is the spicy flavoured Cheetos.
I loved Smiths Cheese Moments, for some reason they only seem to make scampi fries and bacon fries now.
Can still get some of those jelly packs in the odd corner sweet "shoppes" they have knocking around now. Marina life themed.
Anyone remember those looney tunes strips 😅
Don't forget the WWF ones! WWF crisps too. I used to love the Bret Hart ones. I miss the pizza flavoured pot noodles. I always seem to get attached to limited edition things and miss them. There used to be a blue lynx deodorant that was limited, that I loved as well. Who else remembers when walkers sensation crisps were Inna white bag? And the had lamb and mint flavour 🤤 so good!
