    19 Cartoon-Themed Foods And Snacks From The '90s You Might Not Remember

    Because nothing made you want to eat processed foods more than a cartoon face.

    1. Hostess Turtles Pies

    Released at the height of TMNT mania, these delicious treats came with a green crust and "Vanilla Puddin' Power!" center.

    2. Chef Boyardee Street Sharks Pasta


    Somehow mushy pasta tasted better when it came in the shapes of Street Sharks.

    3. Nickelodeon Fruit Roll-Ups


    Fruit Roll-Ups was, and is, already a perennial kids favorite, but having it come in the shape of Doug or Ren & Stimpy, was the icing on the cake.

    4. Mickey's Parade Ice Pops


    There was nothing better on a hot day than these Disney-themed popsicles. Plus, the bonus red or purple tongue was always the best.

    5. McCain Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mini Pizza

    Truth, these pizzas were too different. Green crust and apple flavored? No thanks.

    6. Darkwing Duck Fruit Snacks


    As much as I love Darkwing, I think it was a missed opportunity not releasing a Duck Tales edition.

    7. Yo Yogi Berry Capri Sun


    Yogi tried to get a hip makeover in the early '90s and part of it included getting down with the kids and coming out with his own Capri Sun flavor. It, like his makeover, failed.

    8. Chef Boyardee X-Men Pasta


    OK, I take back what I said before; somehow mushy pasta tasted better when it came in the shapse of the X-MEN!

    9. Eat My Shorts Snacks


    Unfortunately these delicious looking chips (?) were sold only in the UK.

    10. Pokémon Macaroni & Cheese


    Having my pasta in the shape of Pikachu, Meowth, Squirtle, and Jigglypuff is pretty awesome. I only wish they would have added an exclusive card or two.

    11. The Flintstones Soda


    Released in 1994, around the same time of the live-action film adaptation, these sodas came complete with prehistoric pun-names like Limestone Lemonade and Bedrock Berry.

    12. Garfield and Friends Fruit Snacks


    Fruits snacks? Sure, why not. But my real question: Why no Garfield-themed frozen Lasagna?

    13. Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers Frozen Fudge Bars


    I really hope they came with bubble gum noses.

    14. Darkwing Duck: Mysteroni and Cheese

    Again, I like Darkwing Duck, but let's be real, there is only one name in mac & cheese and that's KRAFT!

    15. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cereal


    This was beautiful and yummy blend of Chex and Lucky Charms.

    16. The Flintstones Push-Up with Nerds.

    This wasn't your ordinary Push-Up. Oh no, this was a Push-Up on STEROIDS.

    17. Animaniacs Macaroni & Cheese

    A perfect combination of the greatest cartoon of the '90s and the ONLY mac & cheese any kid should/would want.

    18. Tiny Toon Adventures Cereal


    Surprisingly -- based on the shows popularity -- this cereal never took-off.

    19. Life with Louie Pasta


    All kidding aside, this has to be the most unappetizing cartoon-themed food tie-in ever. Nobody wants to imagine Louie Anderson, while eating their food
