13 Snacks Every ‘90s Kid Wanted

Created December 8, 2016
Fruit Gushers
Blast from the past! One bite and you’ll feel like you’re right back in your parents’ station wagon on the way home from T-Ball. Because nostalgia is the best flavor.

Still Going Strong

1. Fruit Gushers

Fruit Gushers

The jury’s still out on whether these taste better eaten one by one, or smushed together into one giant Super Gusher (you know you did it).


2. Bugles


Food for thought: Were you really a ‘90s kid if you never put Bugles on the ends of all your fingers?


3. Trix Yogurt

How’d they get those colors?!


4. Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars

You know this was the snack you pulled out of your backpack every. single. day. Thanks, Mom!


5. Fruit by the Foot

Three feet was never enough.


6. Chex Mix

Chex Mix

You knew you’d found your true BFF if they liked the piece you always skipped. (Rye chips: very polarizing.)


7. Fruit Roll-Ups

Fruit Roll-Ups

Between the peel-out shapes and the temporary tongue tattoos, these were everything.


8. Pizza Rolls

Pizza Rolls

There was no greater joy than opening the freezer when you got home and finding a box of pizza rolls inside. And let’s be honest — there still isn’t.


9. Go-Gurt


The snack that made you realize those spoons were just holding you back.


10. French Toast Crunch

French Toast Crunch

Like all the best things from the ‘90s, this snackable cereal made a major comeback in the 2010s.


Gone But Not Forgotten

11. DunkAroos


These have gone to the big snack cabinet in the sky, but our friends at Betty Crocker have a DIY copycat version that’s as good as the real thing.


12. Squeezeit


Kids today will never know the pure happiness of a Squeezit in their lunchbox. Remember those bottles that had faces? And the color-changing flavors?


13. Shark Bites

Shark Bites

Tiger stripe shark 4-ever. 


Truth: There’s no such thing as too many snacks.
