1.     Scooby-Doo Fruit Snacks

More than watching the afternoon cartoon TV programs, nothing more made children of the 90's rush back home than the gummy-scented snacks that filled the air upon opening the package. How can anyone forget the green Mystery Machine flavor? Also, did you know adults who miss eating this decided to explore the right way of eating this Scooby Treat

The thick-cut, round meats from the package plus a few crackers and other combine-it-yourself ingredients seems like to solve any problem in life.

Nothing makes us feel more special than food especially made for us, exerted with effort. Remember when your mom never ran out of ideas on what to make with your pancakes next? Breakfast didn't get any better than that!

4.     Pigs in a Blanket

As a kid full of imagination, a bite-sized hotdog wrapped in crescent roll dough is not just hotdog wrapped in dough-it's art and we really treasured every bite! (and said sorry to every piggy.) We wish these are the ones they serve in business meetings. Why not try this Grown Up Version Recipe? 

5.     Easy Cheese

Before whipped cream in can rose to fame, Easy Cheese was the bomb. You were a cool kid when you bring one to school and take "squirts" in between classes.

6.     Spaghetti O's

Maybe grown adults found it weird that kids during that time adored flimsy round noodles swimming in some neon red colored sauce-but we didn't care, and we still don't care. But we care about the recent choking controversy! Yikes! 

7.     Chicken Patty

The happiest school day was the Chicken Patty for lunch day! Never mind that two pieces of limp bread hugs a thin slice of processed chicken don't cater the nutrients we needed, it was delicious, that was what's important!

8.     Go-Gurt

What we loved about this goodness is when we eat it straight from the plastic tube!

9.     Dino Nuggets

Because of the amount of shaped foods back when we were kids, it makes  you wonder, who said adults don't need them in their grown up life? Remember feeling dominant over dinos when you rip their flesh with your teeth?

10.  Hot Pockets

It was hot--literally!

You are not a true 90's kid if you didn't get your tongue burnt after eating hot pockets fresh from the microwave! We loved it nonetheless.
