** Shakey's Pizza pretty much went the same route as White Castle in the late 90s. The franchiser sold all the assets, with most of the restaurants being sold to and repurposed into Domino's Pizza stores.

The franchiser sold all the assets, with most of the restaurants being sold to and repurposed into Domino's Pizza stores. This despite the chain being quite beloved that locals generally thought it's pizzas as ''almost'' as good as Pizza Hut's and the fried chicken almost as good as KFC's.

** Malaysia is another country where automobiles are cases of this, partially due to an unfair import law that enforces a 300% import duty on imported vehicles, put up by the government to "protect" local automobile manufacturers such as Perodua and Proton. This means imported cars costs four times as much as they do in other countries- oftentimes, jacking up the price of affordable cars in the rest of the world to extremely unaffordable levels in Malaysia, inevitably forcing all but the richest Malaysians to buy local. As the result, the higher end market cars generally do not make it in, while affordable market cars are made unaffordable to many in the country.

** Wendy's has been a pretty weird case in Malaysia, intermittently fading in and out at irregular intervals. They entered the Malaysian market in the early 80s, but closed a lot of their restaurants save for a few on the east coast of the peninsula and several in the Borneo states when the early 90s rolled around. Then they went full-scale again in the early 2000s, but started shutting down restaurants again in the early TheNewTens. However apparently they're getting a second (third?) wind and are slowly reopening at new locations in the country.

* The Kinder Surprise Eggs are famous for being banned in the United States, due to a law from the late 1930's that forbid non nutritional content in foods. Slightly averted recently in March 2013 with the release of a similar product called Choco Treasure Eggs, which are made in the ''USA'' and has a different design to avoid the similar fate. Unless Kinder Surprise Eggs adapt Choco Treasure's design, the Kinder Surprise Eggs themselves will still be a NEFY in the US.

Unless Kinder has also been cleared to sell a version of the Surprise Eggs adapt Choco Treasure's design, called the Kinder ''Kinder Joy'', which is already being sold in various equatorial countries, in the US as it is conformant to FDA laws, however the original Surprise Eggs themselves will still remains banned.
** On that note, it should also
be a NEFY in said that the US. original Surprise Eggs are also not sold in Equatorial countries as chocolate melts quickly in those areas and the eggs can quickly degrade into a gooey mess if not refrigerated or consumed quickly enough.
