Childhood snacks have a way of sending you down memory lane that no other food can. They just shoot you straight back to those carefree Saturday mornings spent watching Cartoon Network right before school. Here’s a list of six of my favorite childhood snacks that have been discontinued. I found most of these on Amazon so if you really want to bring up some nostalgia Amazon.con is the way to go!
Yogos were yogurt covered little balls that had either filled with custard or chocolate on the inside in the early 2000s , it was a nice sugary snack for kids with a sweet tooth. I still crave these and found them on Amazon.
Whistle Pops were Lollipops that were made with a hole in them and were popular candies in the ’80s and ’90s. While they were annoying they were also a very fun addition to a normal sucker.
Squeezits were the lunchbox staple in the 80s and 90s. It originally came in four flavors: red punch, orange, grape, and cherry. Then the makers spiced it up and added funny faces with new flavors like Silly Billy Strawberry, Smarty Arty Orange, and Berry B. Wild.
The clear caffeine-free soda was popular in the early 90s. Crystal Pepsi has made some limited time comebacks over the years.
In the 90s Coca-Cola unleashed Fruittopia to the world. While Fruitopia is famous for its flavors it was also famous for the flavors names including: Strawberry Passion Awareness, Tangerine Wavelength, Citrus Consciousness, Fruit Integration, Pink Lemonade Euphoria, Lemonade Love & Hope, Raspberry Psychic Lemonade, Strawberry Kiwi Ruckus, and Beachside Blast. It gave us a fun hippie vibe to it.
