Missing and/or discontinued candies

Has anyone seen After Eight mints recently? Apparently Nestle has not discontinued them but any store nearby that lists them is showing that they are out of stock. They usually appear in the local grocery stores around the winter holidays but I don’t think I have seen them in the last 3 years. Not sure if this is pandemic related, local distribution issue, or something else.

Just had a quick look at one of our supermarket online lists and they seem to be readily available so I wonder if it is perhaps a regional shortage?

I'm sitting here looking at a my annual box of them.  My mother loved them and they were always her "Santa gift", so when I saw them this year, I had to buy them.  I found mine at a candy store that sells everything from nostalgia candy to high end chocolates and stuff from all over the world.  But I'm pretty sure I've seen them at other stores, too.
