The Best 90s Drinks We All Hoped To Find In Our Lunch

- Page 1

Remember the days when your mom or dad would pack your lunch? Now most of us are packing our kid's lunches and I couldn't help but notice, the contents are far less fun than they used to be.

Sure, now they have Kool-Aid Jammers, and Minute Maid juice boxes, but they're also missing out on some key drinks that got us excited to open our lunchbox in the cafeteria.

While we all remember flipping through the latest issue of Tiger Beat as we watched MTV in our bedrooms, many of us have forgotten about some of the best drinks of the 90s.

12. Mello Yello

Coca-Cola's answer to Mountain Dew, this citrus soda had us wanting more and bouncing off the walls during our childhood.

11. Jolt Cola

The name says it all in this one. This was an energy drink that gave you the motivation to make it through those sleepless nights when your project was due the next day. While this may be gone, it has since been replaced by energy drinks. I think I prefer Jolt over Redbull, though.

10. Crystal Pepsi

Having only lasted a year on the shelf, this drink still managed to stand out in my mind as a staple of the 90s. The concept of clear soda not only looks futuristic, but had the same great taste we all loved.

9. Capri Sun

This was a lunchbox essential in the 90s. It was literally only three gulps before it was gone, but in those moments, the drink was divine. While we remember it fondly in our childhood, they are still available today. They've actually been around for 46 years, so hopefully they have no plans of leaving us yet.

8. Nestle Quik

Do you have a craving for chocolate? I think I ingested more of this stuff than I would ever be willing to admit to my adult-self. We all remember the struggle of stirring it just right so all the powder wouldn't settle to the bottom of the glass. Now that they have the syrup and its call Nesquik, it just seems like today's youth are cheating themselves out of a valuable life skill.

7. Orbitz

If you lived close enough to the border, you may have come across this beautiful drink that looks like a 70s table lamp. Orbitz had little orbs floating inside the drink which made it fun to drink and watch. Maybe this contributed to my love for Bubble Tea later in life?

Brendan Fraser Opens Up About The Real Reason Behind His Disappearance From Hollywood

We all remember watching Brendan Fraser in the movies he made when we were kids. It all started with Encino Man, but our obsession with his movies would only grow and grow over the next few years. It seemed like he was in every movie, playing the hunky yet funny star of all the greatest action adventures and comedies from our younger years. But suddenly, his career seemed to get a little bit out of control. The quality of the movies wasn't up to snuff. There were no more hits like George of the Jungle or The Mummy, instead we


10 Things You Miss From Your Childhood, Even Though You Pretend Not To

Y'know those things we all loved in the 90s but pretend to hate? We don't really hate them. It just seems like something we have to say when we're talking to everyone else about "how lame" everything was and how things are better now. Well LISTEN UP. They are not better. Things now are dumb and confusing and all around not cool. Do I sound like a cranky old lady when I say this? Yes. Do I care? Not even a little bit. Maybe it's because all the things we do or have now relate to being an adult, but


The Internet Has Been Blessed With The Trippiest Wendy's Training Videos From The 80s, And They're Gold

Oftentimes when you start a new job you have to go through a training period. This usually entails reading manuals, shadowing a colleague, or watching training videos that will help you get a good grasp of your role so you can perform your best. However, as we've all come to learn at some point in our lives, workplace training videos can be really boring. The voice that narrates these videos is often monotone and the acting is almost always poor, unless it was created by Wendy's in the 80s.
