Tastes like nostalgia.

1. Dunkaroos were the BEST snack, especially when you had a little bit of icing left over:

Betty Crocker / Via

Although no longer available in the US, Dunkaroos are still sold in Canada! So if you're looking to get your hands on these sweet treats you'll need to take a lil' trip.

4. You only drank Hi-C Ecto Cooler Juice Boxes to see how green your tongue would turn:

Minute Made / Via

Although they returned for a short period of time along with the remake of Ghostbusters in 2016, they're sadly no longer available.


7. When the ice cream truck rolled around, you marched right outside to get your Mickey Parade Ice Cream Bar:

Good Humor / Via

Unfortunately, the parade has ended for these bars, but it will continue to march on in our memories.


10. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cereal kickstarted every Saturday morning with a mouth full of woven "ninja nets" and marshmallows:

Ralston / Via

Unfortunately, this sweet cereal is no longer available for purchase, but man, do we miss it.

11. You probably tried to convince your parents that Soda-Licious fruit snacks were a healthy alternative to soda:

Betty Crocker / Via

They have since been discontinued, but there is a huge movement online to bring them back.


13. Once the Blastin' Green and Funky Purple Heinz EZ Squirt Ketchup came out, you refused to use regular ketchup ever again:

Henz / Via

Let's be real, your fries tasted so much better when you dipped it in EZ Squirt. Petition to bring it back?

15. Nothing was better than competing with friends to see whose mouth turned a darker shade of green from Fun Dip:

The Willy Wonky Candy Company / Via

To this day, kids still experience the joys of powdery goodness and dyed mouths.

19. Your parents probably never let you bite into a Wonder Ball, but that didn't stop you from ripping into that chocolate to see the treat inside:

21. Potato Sticks made you feel like your were eating French fries, but you were really just munchin' on some chips:

French's / Via

Although the serving size was technically for a small family, you still ate the whole can by yourself.

22. Finally, Doritos 3D were basically the best chip the world has ever seen:

Frito-Lay / Via

All the flavor, all the crunch, and probably your favorite Dorito since the launch of the Cool Ranch flavor. Maybe one day they'll bring them back for us.
