Do These Popular 1990s/Early 2000 Businesses/Products Still Exist?

If you're a 90s kid like me you grew up with a lot of iconic things that either don't exist anymore or are in low abundance. See if you can figure out what still exists or has said "Bye Bye Bye," like NSYNC.

  1. Does Blockbuster still exist?

    Before there was Netflix there was the one and only Blockbuster. There was a time where approximately 43 million households from all over the United States had memberships. Now? It's up to you to decide if they are open.

    Yes
    No
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Yes! Hard to believe, but they are still in business as of April 2017. There are 12 locations in the United States remaining, along with 12 in New Zealand, and 27 in Australia. In fact, 8 of the remaining 12 US locations are found in Alaska.

  2. Is Circuit City still around?

    Once Best Buy's righthand competitor, Circuit City has certainly seen better times. Think about the last time you shopped here and tell me does Circuit City still exist?

    Yes! Well kind of. This one's tricky. Circuit City doesn't have any open, physical stores, but Circuit City has recently come back with online purchasing under the title "Circuit City Corporation." Who knew!

  3. Are the Backstreet Boys still together?

    Backstreet Boys or NSYNC? That seemed to be the hot question in the late 1990s, early 2000s. However, think about the last time you were asked that? We already know Justin Timberlake and his former band mates said "Bye Bye Bye," a long time ago. But what about the other half of the rivalry? Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF

    Yes! The Boys are still rocking here in 2017. Hard to believe considering NSYNC broke up in 2002. In fact, they are in the middle of a 4 month residency in Las Vegas as of April 2017! Safe to say they are still "Larger Than Life."

  4. Can you still enjoy an infamous Wonder Ball?

    This was the snack of choice for 90s kids. It was the perfect combination of chocolate and candy. Unfortunately there have been some hiccups with the product. It was withdrawn in 1997 when it originally had toy pieces instead of candy. Many were concerned about the choking hazard the little toy pieces presented. However it came back stronger than ever in 2000 when they replaced these toys with candy. However how exactly is the Wonder Ball looking in 2017?

    Yes! After 12 years off the market it came back in February 2016 with Despicable Me candy. Plus you can still order the originals online if your heart desires 12 year old candy and chocolate. I'd check with your stomach first though.

  5. Can you buy your little nephew a toy at KB Toys?

    You remember KB Toys, don't you? Sure Toys R Us and Gamestop seemed to be the top destinations for 90s kids, but I know I found myself at KB quite a bit. Can you relive your childhood days at KB today?

    yes

    Finally our first legit no. At its peak KB had about 1300 stores across the nation, but it officially went out of business in 2009 when Toys R Us bought them out.

  6. Can you still buy a Harry Potter book at Borders?

    Barnes and Noble is clearly the kingpin in the book retail world, but Borders wasn't too far behind. The company had almost 700 stores during their peak period. However that peak period was over a decade ago. Can you go to Borders here in 2017?

    Unfortunately Borders has closed their "borders," for good. The company shut down for good in 2011, giving Barnes & Noble their trademarks and customer's list.
