Sprite and Fanta and many other soft drinks in Australia. They’ve gone from being sweetened with plain old cane sugar, to being sweetened with 70% cane sugar and 30% fucking stevia.

Cartoons and it was pretty recent that it shifted. Back in the day every show on Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon was amazing like Courage the Cowardly Dog but now most of them are just easy to produce garbage that only last a few seasons just to get replaced by moe trash.
Doc Marten boots. Used to be UK made and lasted forever. Now they wear out like everything else.
