    Try getting through this without buying Lunchables.

    1. Dunkaroos

    AKA glorified animal crackers in icing.

    2. Fla-Vor-Ice

    What was better than foot-long ice pops that you could sword fight with?

    3. Toaster Strudel

    You probably ate these whenever Mom was too lazy to make breakfast...which was far too often.

    4. Wonder Balls

    Apparently these prize-filled balls were a serious choking hazard, but they were fun while they lasted.

    5. Ellio's Pizza

    PSA: Add a little garlic and red pepper flakes and you can turn Ellio’s frozen pizza into some quality stuff.

    6. Uncrustables

    TBH this is the most genius invention of all time. Why do any sandwiches have crust?

    7. Rice Krispies Treats Cereal

    After causing about a billion cavities and a trillion sugar-induced temper tantrums, this wonderful cereal finally went extinct.

    8. Linden's Cookies

    For some reason Famous Amos still gets the spotlight, but these were legit.

    9. Ouch! Gum

    Just what the doctor ordered.

    10. Gushers/Fruit Roll-Ups/Fruit By The Foot

    Instagram: Metalheadmunchkin08 / Via Instagram: @metalheadmunchkin08

    You had at least one of these three fruit snacks in your lunch box every. damn. day.

    11. Dinosaur Eggs Oatmeal

    Instagram: Welovethe90s_ / Via Instagram: @welovethe90s_

    Literally what could be cooler than a T. rex hatching in your oatmeal?

    12. Squeezit

    Instagram: Welovethe90s_ / Via Instagram: @welovethe90s_

    Truthfully don't even want to know what chemicals were in this.

    13. Oreo O's

    Instagram: Nobody_hj / Via Instagram: @nobody_hj

    This isn't cereal. It's crack.

    14. French Toast Crunch

    Instagram: Mangosteen73 / Via Instagram: @mangosteen73

    OK, so it's decided. The '90s was the greatest cereal decade of all time. Hands down.

    15. Sprinkl'ins Yogurt

    Instragram: Retrostorage / Via Instagram: @retrostorage

    They turned your yogurt into tie-dye sugar and it was freaking awesome.

    16. Scooby Doo Fruit Snacks

    Instagram: Nb_kinda_girl / Via Instagram: @nb_kinda_girl

    Let's be honest: You never, ever shared the blue gummy.

    17. Handi-Snacks

    Instagram: Sheisnikki / Via Instagram: @sheisnikki

    Still sold at your local CVS, in case you were wondering.

    18. String Things

    Instagram: X_Gabbie_X / Via Instagram: @x__gabbie__x

    Admit you were always disappointed when Mom packed you a String Thing instead of the usual Gushers.

    19. Lunchables

    Instagram: whati8b4i8it

    The OG of lunchbox food. No shame if you still buy these from time to time.

    20. Kudos

    Youtube / Via

    They were just candy bars disguised as granola.

    21. Jell-O Pudding Bites

    22. EZ Squirt Ketchup

    Instagram: officialwiztid / Via Instagram: @officialtwiztid

    Even a diehard ketchup lover probably gets a little queasy looking at this godforsaken condiment.

    23. Fudge Stripes

    Instagram: Giuila_mangano / Via Instagram: @giulia_mangano

    Unclear why these ever went out of fashion.

    24. Dippin' Dots

    Instagram: Amber_stiffler / Via Instagram: @amber_stiffler

    How did these stay frozen in the cup and melt on any other surface? Looking for answers.

    25. Gummy Hamburgers

    Instagram: Arvi_pasha / Via Instagram: @arvi.pasha

    Fact: Nothing is more adorable than mini gummy food.
