25 Snacks That Prove The '90s Was The Greatest Ever Decade

Remember when you could find £20 in a packet of Walkers?

Posted on

1. In the '90s, people weren't afraid to be bold with their flavours – remember Aero Cappucino?

2. There was also the orange Crunchie, gone but not forgotten.

3. And the Wispa Mint, which never came back when the original and Wispa Gold did.

4. Back in the '90s, we were still blessed with the presence of ice cream flavour Chewits.

5. Walkers crisps were more fun, because they were named after footballers.

6. And sometimes you could find a little blue packet inside and win £20, which was the most exciting thing ever.

7. The '90s were the days when KitKat would give you a FIFTH finger – that's a whole fist.

8. And Smarties came in the best size – giant.

9. Also, everyone knows that Smarties were way more fun when you got to pop the little lid off them – they just have a boring cardboard flap now.

10. Sunny D was worth risking turning orange for, because it tasted so much better.

The new stuff just isn't the same.

11. And Cartoonies existed, which made the world a significantly better place.

12. Since the '90s, all of our favourite white chocolate treats have been mercilessly killed off, like the Cadbury Snowflake.

It was the Snowflake, and then it was the Flake Snow, and then it was just gone.

14. Wotsits were so much more than just cheese flavour.

15. And remember the Echo bar? That's gone now, probably forever.

Such an underrated chocolate bar.

16. You could get citrus Polos, which were at least as good as regular Polos.

17. And for some reasons you could also buy just the holes – and they were great.

18. The '90s were the decade of Frufoos – come for the yoghurt, stay for the toy.

Hardly anyone remembers these, even though they were the best.

19. They were also a time when you could get Monster Munch that tasted like beef burgers, or turned your tongue blue.

It almost certainly wasn't natural or good for you, but we didn't care.

20. Even better – ICE CREAM FLAVOUR MONSTER MUNCH.

21. Penguin Flipper Dippers were the ultimate lunchbox treat.

22. And Doritos came in 3D, which means they were at least one whole dimension better than the boring 2D ones.

23. Not only were all our snacks better in the '90s, they were bigger too.

24. Freddos, to be fair, are basically the same, except for one very important detail.

25. But the biggest crime of all? Cadbury thinking it was OK to scrap the Taz bar, and call it a Caramel Freddo.
