16 Snacks From The 90s You Probably Forgot About

- Page 1

When 90s kids think back on their childhoods, there are some snacks that we always immediately remember: Fruit By The Foot, Dunkaroos, Fruit Gushers, and Nerds are foods we all remember loving. Some snacks, however, just weren’t as iconic, even though we loved them just as much. They were destined to be forgotten almost as soon as stores stopped carrying them. Lucky for us, the Internet never forgets.

Pretty hard to forget this horror showGiphy

1) Turtle Pies

Basically everything in the early 90s was somehow related to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so it makes sense that you might forget some of the seemingly thousands of snack food tie-ins to TMNT. They may have looked a little weird, but they were basically giant green poptarts full of pudding, so how could that be a bad thing?

2) Flaming Hot Doritos

When people think of Doritos from the 90s they wish would make a comeback, most think of Doritos 3D, but Flamin’ Hot Doritos were the real MVP. Sure, there are other “spicy” Doritos that you can get now, but nothing can compare to that sweet sweet spicy burn. You can keep your Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, it was all about these Doritos.


3) Yoplait Trix Yogurt

Yogurt and delicious cereal combined, what could be better?

4) Fruit String Things

We all remember Fruit Roll-ups and Fruit By The Foot, but these were just the best. Slowly unraveling the design was just so satisfying. They were as fun to play with as they were tasty

5) Sodalicious

Why have fruit snacks when you could have what kids really wanted, soda! Out of all the candy no longer with us, this is the one that we miss the most. Also the play on words in their name is just too perfect.

6) Melody Pops

Exactly what every parent wanted, sugar to hype up the kids, and something they could use to make a loud irritating noise. We didn’t care, but I’m sure our parents hated them.

7) Bubble Beeper

Beepers were all the rage in the 90s, but unless your parents were super rich, there was no way you had one. Lucky for us, we had Bubble Beeper gum, which came in a convenient beeper-esque plastic container that you could clip to your pants and pretend was real. In some places, this apparently caused a lot of controversy among parents, since beepers were also known to be carried by drug dealers.

8) Go Snacks

One of many delicious 90s snacks that includes the word "Go" in it's name (see also: Go-Gurt, Go-Tarts), Go Snacks were a fancier (or lazier) way of eating your favorite chips. They were really just bite-sized versions of Lays, Cheetos and, obviously, Doritos 3D's, stuffed in an easy-to-hold plastic container. While we were meant to use the lid as a tiny bowl, we just dumped them straight into our mouths because of course we did. Added bonus: no Cheetos dust to stain your fingers for the rest of eternity.
