'90s Snacks That Must Be Brought Back

One day we will all sit down and tell our grandchildren about the time when cartoons were plentiful, bell-bottoms were fashionable, and the snacks were like crack-cocaine.

Posted on

1. French Toast Crunch

Although French Toast Crunch was discontinued in the U.S. in 2006, it is still being actively distributed and sold in Canada. Why it hasn't been smuggled across the border and sold in the black market is beyond me.

2. Dannon Sprinkl'ins

When this product hit the market in the early 90s, Dannon told the New York Times that Sprinkl'ins were going to create a "new generation of yogurt eaters." $43.9 million dollars later in annual revenue indicated that they were right.

"I'm sorry but would you like some yogurt with those sprinkles?"

5. Mickey’s Parade Ice Pops

These Disney ice pops were the pinnacle of flavor, form and function until they were unjustly snatched from the hands of children in the early 2000s. You can't even buy them on eBay anymore. Cruel world.

6. Dunkaroos

Betty Crocker severely scaled back production of Dunkaroos in the 2000s, making them almost impossible to find. If you're lucky enough to find a box of these frosted dream packs, dunk safely my friends. Dunk safely.

10. Butterfinger BB's

These heavenly chocolate peanut butter balls were discontinued in 2006 but later brought back as Butterfinger Mini Bites, the not-as-good and less exciting version of the original.

12. Planters Cheez Balls

The discontinuation of Planters Cheez Balls was the most tragic disappearance of all the 90s snacks. In fact, there was such public outrage over the shortage of cheese balls that 90s kids everywhere have banned together to write a petition.

If you too have suffered from sporadic shakes, sleep apnea, or other health problems due to the lack of cheese ball consumption, I invite you to sign the petition to bring Planters Cheez Balls back to American shelves.
