Any company that made kids' cartoons in the 90s wanted nothing more than to get our hard-earned money (or more likely our parents's hard-earned money), and what better way to do that than by advertising the hell out of your show?
Of course there were toys, games, books, and all the usual stuff. BUT, if you're anything like me, chances are the things you remember best are the delicious treats that they encouraged us to get at the supermarket. In particular, these 15 snacks are some really fond memories.
I'd definitely much rather pour myself a box of Fruity Pebbles than actually watch The Flintstones
They even had their own ice cream! Remember Push-Ups?
Or their own juice boxes, which tasted way better than those chewable vitamins
Remember heating up one of these bad boys in the toaster oven?
Back when our favorite canned pasta crossed over with our not-quite-favorite giant mutants
They even did it for an entire team of mutants!
Seriously, these next few snacks might actually be better than their shows...
These delicious green monstrosities
When our favorite "fruit" snack got even better thanks to our favorite cartoons!
Anyone remember when we could literally eat Bart's shorts?
I barely even remember Life With Louie, let alone that he had a pasta from a Chef Boyardee knockoff
What's better than macaroni and cheese? Mac and cheese shaped like MARIO CHARACTERS of course!
Of course there were real Scooby Snacks
Now you could even eat your favorite living toys! ...Wait
These absolutely insane-looking Simpsons Pop-Tarts
And of course, these unintentionally creepy Ninja Turtles ice pops
Going trick-or-treating when you're a kid is probably one of the most important days of the entire year. When else are you supposed to get a whole bunch of free candy for little to no effort? I mean, I guess there's Easter and Christmas, but you know what, with Halloween you get to wear super fun costumes and pretend to be whatever you want. Those of us who enjoyed trick-or-treating as kids probably developed quite the sweet tooth, that often makes us crave some of the delectable snacks from our childhood. But here's the problem, some of our favorite candy
Who else remembers eating a big ol' bowl full of Trix cereal in the morning before packing your lunch and heading off to school? Trix was the perfect cereal to eat, because a lot of us felt like we were tricking our parents into thinking it was healthy. Sure, we're eating sugary cereal, but it's fruit-flavored so obviously it's not as bad as Cocoa Puffs or something. Boy, were we wrong. Well, now we're all old enough not to care, we can eat sugary cereal if we want because guess what, cereal is delicious. But there's been one thing missing
We've said it before and we'll say it again, Pizza Hut is truly excellent. No, they aren't paying me to say that, but if they want to, I'm ready to make a deal. Back on track though, Pizza Hut has been around since 1958, and in their 60 year history they have managed to create quite the empire. Sure, a lot of other pizza places have come and gone in that time, and maybe they aren't as popular as they used to be, but Pizza Hut will always hold a special, pizza-shaped place in all of our hearts. If there
I don't know about you, but for me, Pizza Hut wasn't just a restaurant. Pizza Hut was a magical place that only existed when you got a straight-A report card or had a birthday. There wasn't a location nearby to my town, so going to Pizza Hut was an event. But I think that even those who went more often still know all about the power of the Hut. Going to Pizza Hut doesn't seem like it's as big of a deal anymore, if anything people tend to forget it exists. But those of us who know the truth and
