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 While this may be gone, it has since been replaced by energy drinks.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?

'Backdraft' Is Getting A Sequel 27 Years After The Original, With Only One Of The Original Stars

Few movies have given us as exciting of a look at the life of a firefighter as Backdraft. The Chicago-based thriller followed the fire department as they take on some big fires and some big drama.The cast was really impressive, and included big names like Robert De Niro, Kurt Russell, Billy Baldwin, and Donald Sutherland. With such an impressive cast, you'd expect a guaranteed hit, but it received mixed reviews. However, despite the mixed reviews, the movie made a good chunk of change at the box office and now they are trying to make it happen again. Universal PicturesThat's


'Men In Black' Reboot Reveals Who They've Cast As The Stars Of The New Movie

I know, I know, no more reboots! Everyone is sick of our favorite movies getting made over and over again, but Hollywood seems to be out of ideas and they've got to make something. This time it's going to be a remake of arguably the best Will Smith movie ever: Men In Black. Sony plans to go the Jurassic World route, and introduce new characters in the already established world. So I guess it's not so much a reboot as a spin-off. The new movie is not set to feature either Tommy Lee Jones's Agent K or Will Smith's Agent


Founder Of Toys 'R' Us, Charles Lazarus, Has Passed Away At 94

Going to Toys 'R' Us was literally the highlight of our childhood. Each and everyone of us would run through those sliding doors and would immediately turn into little Tasmanian devils and tear through the store as though we had no knowledge of manners. The reason that we got to enjoy this epic experience was because of Charles Lazarus. Lazarus founded his company in 1948 and every since he has watched his company grow. That is, until this week. The first toy store he opened was not called Toys 'R' Us, but instead "Children's Bargain Town." He knew that the


Middle-Aged Man Has Collected Over 5,000 Barbies, And My Inner Child Is Getting Jealous

Collecting Barbies was basically the most important thing to me when I was a young girl. I probably had more than a dozen, and I loved each and every one of them. As I grew older, and I didn't want to play with Barbies anymore, I slowly let go of my collection, passing them down to younger cousins and selling them at garage sales. I don't have any left now, but sometimes when you see the commercials it gives you that little warm nostalgic feeling. One man however, went ahead and decided that his desire for nostalgia would trump all
