When we think back on the golden era that is the ’90s there are a lot of things we miss: the beauty products, the fashion and, of course, the food. We’re not talking about your mom’s home cooked dinners (although we could totally go for one of those right about now), we mean those snacks and lunchtime goodies with catchy commercials that popped up in between episodes of Clarissa Explains It All or Hey Arnold. You know, the ones you’d beg your mom to buy when you accompanied her to the grocery store. If you’re up for a stroll down memory lane, scroll on down to reminisce with us about the best junk foods of yore.
1. Dunkaroos: The little frosting covered cookie was pretty much the king of lunchtime. Classmates would make some seriously tempting trades to get thier hands on one of these little packs.
2. Gushers: These super sweet treats were the crème de la crème of fruit snacks. You can bet we savored every last one of these little gems.
4. Pizza Lunchables: When your mom packed you one of those ham, cheese and cracker Lunchables it was a good day. When she packed you the pizza lunchable it was close to a miracle.
5. Crispy M&Ms: We mourned the loss of these sweet treats for a while, but apparently M&Ms heard our cries and revived the crispy chocolates.
6. French Toast Crunch: Forget the real thing, we were all about this cereal version of the beloved breakfast food. Like crispy M&Ms it was sadly discontinued in 2006 but has since risen up from the snack food graveyard. (Photo via General Mills)
7. Trix Yogurt: Go-Gurt was cool, but Trix yogurt reigned supreme. The flavors were delicious, but the best thing about them was definitely the different colors you could swirl together.
10. Kool-Aid Bursts: Let’s be honest, after a long day at school all you really wanted to do was come home, put on some cartoons and chug one of these guys.
