14 Snacks All '90s Kids Miss

These discontinued snacks were some of the best in the '90s. Not only did they make our school lunches more enjoyable, they tasted great! I always wondered what the reasoning was behind discontinuing all of these delicious, popular items that all '90s kids loved.

1. Dunkaroos

Nothing was better than opening your lunch and finding dunkaroos. You got to dip graham crackers in frosting? It was the best thing, but usually you only ate the frosting.

2. French Toast Crunch

This was brilliant. A cereal that tasted like french toast. The cereal was discontinued in the 2000's, but was introduced to some stores recently!

3. Gushers

Mouth watering gushers were so juicy every time you bit into one! They always got your hands so sticky after eating a handful, but it was worth it! Thank goodness these are still around.

4. Wonderball

You got two different types of candies in the Wonderball! The small tart candies were enclosed in a huge chocolate ball. You got the best of both worlds, and nothing could be better.

5. Fruit By The foot

Fruit By The Foot was a foot of delicious fruity goodness. You were able to eat a whole fruit by the foot in a little less than a minute.

6. EZ Squirt ketchup

Available in three different colors, EZ Squirt ketchup made eating eventful! Kids loved the idea of putting purple ketchup on their french fries, or dipping their chicken nuggets into a green ketchup.

7. Baby Bottle Pops

The sweetness of the Baby Bottle Pop powder dipped on the sucker itself was delicious! Sometimes stores even carried baby bottle pop crunch, which added an extra layer of a sweet crunch topping.

8. Cosmic brownies

Cosmic brownies were always a bonus in your school lunch. The chocolate brownie was topped in multi colored sprinkles, which made a perfect match for your sweet tooth.

9. Push Ups

On a hot summer day, push pops were the perfect snack. Usually Fred Flintstone appeared on the packaging.

10. Hubba Bubba Ouch

This bubble gum came in a packaging similar to a bandaid. Hubba Bubba bubblegum put three flavors in every box!

11. Little Hugs Fruit Barrels

These fruit flavored juices were perfect for a warm neighborhood drink! They came in a variety of flavors to quench your thirst.

12. Go-Gurt

Go-Gurt was perfect for school time lunches or a snack on the go. It was easy to take with you, and it was easy to eat, no messes! You could even put them in the freezer and have a frozen Go-Gurt, which was refreshing after a hot day in the sun.

13. Altoids mango sours

These sour treats were everyone's favorites at your local grocery store. I never knew why Altoids stopped making these sours because they were always such a popular item!

14. Mini Ice Cream Cups

These were everyone's favorites birthday snacks. When it was someone's birthday, you knew these mini cups would be the snack of the day. They usually came in chocolate and vanilla or strawberry and vanilla.

Although some of these are still available, we will miss what is not and remember the days where our taste buds were in heaven!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
