I know I'll miss Cheetos, coffee for damn sure, toilet paper, air conditioning, the microwave, Ravioli's, the washing machine and probably hot showers too.
I think they'll be a way around some like the hot shower and turning someone else into a washing machine (har har), but I don't think anyone's going to make more Cheetos.

I'd stock up more, but their shelf life is so short, why bother.

Real coffee, Riding my motorcycles, long hot endless showers or bath when ever I want..
Working on the last one think I can make that happen.
I have lived in places in my life where we were without for extend periods of time. so I have an idea of what it maybe like.

Maybe not endless or whenever you want, but hot showers and bathing can happen. They sell sun warmer showers for starters designed to be hung and warmed by the sun. A person could make one for sure. Than a person could boil water and transfer it too. Make a bathtub out of lots of things. Even dig a hole in the ground, line it with plastic sheeting, fill it with water and let the sun warm it. It can be done, there's just going to be some ingenuity and work involved.

The wife thinks the cans of gas are for the generator. Nope. The bike. Wood is for cooking, blankets are for warmth, candles are for lighting, gas is for the bike.
Don't tell her. ;)

chocolate... gotta be honest i'm gonna miss chocolate and other sweets that i just wont be able to have. stock up on coco powder/etc but sooner or later it's gonna run out. just cant grow coco in ohio...

running water. i mean i dont mind handpumping water but i know once it comes to HAVING to do it or no water then i will get over it and miss just the turn of a faucet handle. i lived for 2 years having to haul water in 5gal jugs. thats water for everything. you really dont realise how much water you use until ya gotta carry it all.

What will I miss the most ? Well, going to the store and buying groceries would be my main things. Of course I have preps in the way of food put away, but not the same as fresh fruit, meat, dairy products and the like.

Well I don't drink coffee so that is no problem. We can get a hot bath or shower so not really a problem there, I believe what I will miss the most will be the everyday contact with friends,relatives and the outside world. I guess that is something I would get used to but would miss it. Telephone.....

This reminds me I really need to stock up on coffe and sugar more. And refine my coffee over an open fire brewing system. I may miss coffee the most.

I certainly won't miss the crazy rat-race, heck I might even PREFER a quiet, serene post-apocalypse world!
Some people in 'Survivors' felt that way too, check the last scene of this clip from 6:20 where they switch OFF the new electric lighting because they prefer candles..:)-

If the world truly ends, we'll all be dead. Right?

In that case, I would miss:

Warm blankets
Pajamas
My dogs
That feeling when you're really tired and your head finally hits the pillow
My kids giggles
The Walking Dead, especially Norman Reedus
Coupon deals and easy access to stuff via the stores
Longs baths with a good book

Chinese food
Add that to my list. Man do I love Chinese food. I know what we get is Americanized, but I will miss it. I'd just about marry a nice (and smoking hot) Chinese girl who could cook just for that.
