#throwbackthursday: The 90’s: Food and Drink

So this week, we’re talking about 90’s foods and drinks..
I know some of these are still available, but it’s more that they’re not as popular as what they were in their heyday..

  • Sunny Delight – Or Sunny D as it’s marketed now. I’m not convinced, as an adult, that this is ‘good’ for children, but boy, it tastes good! 
  • Nesquik – That bunny and the TV adverts.. Cereal tasted good, it not looking like animal droppings!
  • Um Bongo – Again, I can’t imagine the E numbers in this, but it tasted good. The adverts we’re awesome!
  • Nerds – They used to go everywhere! I liked that there were two different flavours.
  • Squeez it – I used to HATE opening these. It was never as easy as you think they meant it to be. I didn’t think they tasted that good either. They didn’t seem to contain much.
  • Push Pops – I loved these! So many flavours. It was great that you could put then lid on and save it for later too.
  • Capri Sun – These were so good. I used to like the Blackcurrent one. Anyone else think the straw was ridiculously thin?
  • Gob stoppers – These were the small ones, but I remember the proper big ones, that look like something Lush produce for your bath! They really did last a long time though, but once you started, there was nowhere to keep it.. it being sticky!
  • Sherbet Fountain – Packaging has changed, but there still good! I was never a licorice fan, but I loved the sherbet! 
  • Ez Squirt Ketchup – Oh I giggled when I found this! What were people thinking to think of turning ‘red’ tomato sauce green! There was a purple one too?..

So these are foods/sweets I remember, What do you remember?..

    Push Pops! Seem to remember they had the cheesiest adverts EVER!

    Um Bongo is so disappointing now, it doesn't taste how I remember it at all 🙁 x

    Probably was in the 80s not the 90s but we had chips that had ketchup in the centre of them! We loved them, nobody seems to remember them though! Oh and Nestle Secret Bars and Cadburys Spiras!!

    I loved Push-Pops and Nerds. But its even better now as there are so many different flavours. Sunny Delight stripped the enamel off your teeth and I don't suppose its much better now!
    Remember when Starbursts were Opal Fruits and Snickers were Marathons?
    Really enjoying the 90's series. Nothing like a bit of nostalgia.
