25 Foods You Probably Haven't Eaten Since You Were A Kid

Life was so much simpler then, and rich with high-fructose corn syrup.

1. Pizza Lunchables

This is probably one of the more horrid things to eat as a kid, never mind in adulthood. Who thought cold pizza sauce on pita bread was a good idea is anybody's guess.

2. Anything made in an Easy-Bake Oven

LOL, like your food ever turned out like this. It was either way overcooked or way under, yet you still ate it because COOKING!

3. or a Queasy Bake Cookerator

At least it was true to its name.

4. Bazooka Bubble Gum

It looks like an eraser and tastes almost the same (for the ten seconds it has flavor, that is). You really only ate these for the comic in the wrapper, which was usually just as disappointing as the gum itself.

6. Yellow cheese slices

The term "cheese" is given great leniency, since it tastes almost the same as the plastic it's wrapped in.

7. Fish Sticks

As a kid, I had fish sticks on the regular. And then one day they pulled a Keyser Söze and — poof!— like that, they were gone.

8. Crackers 'N Cheese Dip

You could never get the cheese-to-cracker ratio right, so you were inevitably left scraping the cheese with the red plastic thing. And if you dropped that red thing your day was ruined, because how else would you spread your cheese dip?

9. Super sugary cereal

Now it's all whole grain this and flaxseed that. Plus, Kashi doesn't have toys in their boxes, so extra bummer.

OK, maybe you had a few cans in college, but you were probably drunk when you ate them so that doesn't count.

13. Jawbreakers

As an adult the words "jaw" and "break" should not be in any way associated with the food you are eating.

These were more sugar than pie, but you were a kid and that was fine by you.

More pure sugar but with the addition of a pure sugar dipping stick. This is like a speedball for children.

18. Kid Cuisine

Having Kid Cuisine for dinner was like getting the chef's table at Le Cirque: basically the most baller thing you could do.

Remember when it was just Quik? Ah, the good old days of never quite mixing it enough and being surprised with chocolate dust bombs in your mouth.

20. Blow Pops and Tootsie Pops

Both were a dentist's wet dream since they meant more cavities for you. Just pick your poison: gross gum in the middle or gross chocolate. How all kids don't have false teeth is beyond me.

21. Mini box of raisins

Yes, I'm sure you've had raisins not too long ago, but when was the last time you opened up a tiny box of them? Fourth grade, that's when.

Why these aren't appetizers at every party is beyond me, because they rocked as a kid and still do.

23. Wax bottles

The truly hardcore would pop the whole thing and chew on the wax as if it were chewing tobacco, which is a habit that is never too early to teach children.

Just tell the cashier it's for your "child" who "really, really wanted one."
