15 Food Items Every 2000s Middle Schooler Was Addicted To

Yes! Mom packed me a Capri Sun.

Bon Appetit

1. Capri Sun

I still have a weak spot for Cherry Capri Sun, because every time I take a sip it's almost like I am 5 years old again playing outside and stopping for a quick drink break.

2. Graham Crackers/ Teddy Grahams

We are going way back to preschool with this one, where things were simpler and the biggest heartache was when you didn't get the cool crayon box with the crayon sharpener built into it.

3. Goldfish

Still a staple in my diet, these were/are the best. Since I work in a daycare, I am around them constantly, and probably 90% of kids bring them daily to get some fuel after playing an intense round of tag.

4. Chicken Nuggets

I'm not talking about dinosaur nuggets, because I do not remember ever eating them, but you really cannot beat the classic nugget.

5. Shaped Macaroni and Cheese

I couldn't tell you why, but I absolutely love the shaped Macaroni, i.e. Spongebob, or Star Wars, or Frozen. It tastes 100 times better than normal macaroni and you always knew that it was a special day when mom came home with shaped macaroni and cheese.

6. Lunchables

It was never a field trip day without this staple lunch. The pizza one was the best lunch that I could ask for, and it was just as great as having the day off of school .

7. PB&J

This is the first thing that I learned how to "cook" as a kid, and it still shows because at the age of 21 I still make this multiple times a week. However, I absolutely have to have grape jelly, otherwise it isn't a true PB&J. Don't fight me on this.

8. Spaghetti O's

This wasn't my favorite as a kid, but I know I ate it pretty often. Kids love easy foods, and I'm sure my parents loved that I liked it.

9. Popsicles (either Flav-or-ice, or Push Pops)

These were the absolute best when it was 100 degrees, and running through the sprinkler. You could get so many different colors, and it just screams summer time. There was nothing better than sucking out all of the juice at the bottom of the Flav-or-ice!

10. HUGS

These were the little barrel juice boxes that actually aren't that great nowadays but they rocked as a kid. We used to get giant boxes of them, and I swear the whole box would be gone in a day. The whole neighborhood would come around and hang out at night, and the kids would all grab their hugs and hang out with each other and our parents.

11. Dunkaroos

Graham cracks + vanilla frosting + sprinkles = most popular kid at the lunch table.

12. String Cheese

Cheese that you can peel. Brilliant.

13. Chocolate Milk

We all got this during nap time when we were way young, so it was practically programmed into our minds as a treat even as we grew older.

14. Gushers

Fruit snacks that exploded with more flavorful goo. It's not rocket science.

15. Pizza

This was served on Fridays and symbolized freedom in addition to being delicious.

No matter what stigmas you held about therapy before this year, I'm sure 2020 has affirmed that we could ALL use a nice long therapy session. Between wildfires that took over an entire continent, a global health crisis, and what's sure to be one giant circus of an election in the United States, we need help and we need it now.

The fact of the matter is, therapy has been a helpful, valid resource long before the world decided to become one giant dumpster fire. Having a safe space to discuss what's going on in your life, worries you have, and struggles you're facing has become a very normal thing for individuals' mental health.
