Let’s go back to the days when accessories were edible, Altoids weren’t just breath mints and the things in your lunchbox could make or break your reputation.
1. Handy Snacks
Cheese and crackers for those days when we were feeling particularly classy.
2. Cosmic Brownies
There was no doubting that your mom loved you if you opened your lunchbox and found one of these.
3. Fruit by the Foot
You can’t go wrong with “six feet of fun!”
4. 3D Doritos
Remember these? Only the “cool kids” had them.
5. Green Ketchup
This stuff really took off when Shrek came out.
6. Baby Bottle Pops
We were too old to drink from bottles but too young to be embarrassed by these.
7. Wonder Balls
Sometimes there was hard candy inside. Sometimes there was a toy. Choking hazards weren’t a thing in the 90s.
8. Pizza Lunchables
We thought these were the greatest thing ever until we opened the package and remembered that it was only stale crackers and plastic-flavored toppings. And some of us still thought they were the greatest thing every.
9. Capri Sun Pouches
Not only were these refreshing beverages…
…they made great handbags too.
We were all afraid to try these because the commercials made us believe that they would turn our heads into fruit.
11. Candy Cigarettes
Because encouraging childhood smoking habits used to be okay.
12. Hubba Bubba Tape
One of these was enough gum to share with everyone in your class.
13. Smucker’s Uncrustables
Because nobody likes the crust.
14. Push Pops
It was lipstick. It was candy. It had a nifty pen clip on the lid.
Mmmmmm…tangy. But actually disgusting.
16. Ouch Bubble Gum
Three flavors of gum in a Band-Aid tin. What more could we ask for?
What’s the only thing that can make animal cookies better than they already are? Frosting.
18. Candy Necklace
It matched everything you owned because you could snack on the colors that clashed.
19. Cheetos Cheese Puffs
These are still a favorite but now we’re more careful about what we touch with our cheese-coated fingers.
20. Altoid Citrus Sours
Remember when Altoids weren’t just breath mints?
21. Hamburger Helper
The best days were the days when Mom and Dad only had time to make Hamburger Helper…and the days when the helping hand visited your school.
22. Reese’s Swoops
Remember when Reese’s and Pringles had a baby and, for a moment, there was world peace?
23. Old Logos
We all remember the day we went into the grocery store or drove past a Taco Bell and did a double take. Let’s face it, we’re still not used to the new ones.
