Won't Miss #30 - Japanese cheese
There are two kinds of Japanese cheese. There is the real and the very expensive sort sold in tiny packages for insane prices, and there is processed cheese. Processed cheese, far and away, dominates the marketplace and real cheese is generally available only as cheddar, Gouda or mozzarella. For every dainty pack of real cheddar, there are at least 3 types of plastic-wrapped slices. The processed cheese isn't bad, but it isn't great.
I won't miss the sea of processed cheese and limited varieties and great expense of real cheese.
