Let's be real: '90s candy was the best candy. Hands down, no argument, don't @ me. Because why would you settle for a peanut butter cup when you can have a gummy shark?

1. Nestle Wonderball

These things were delicious! I begged my parents for one on like a daily basis.

2. Baby Bottle Pop

The commercials for these were almost as good as the candy itself.

3. Gummy Sharks

As a kid, I could eat an entire bag of these in one sitting. They were the best things to ever exist.

4. Gummy Pizza

OK, these things really didn't taste that great, but they were such a staple of the '90s, I want to see them back on shelves just for old time's sake.

5. Nerd Ropes

The day these left shelves, I'm pretty sure I cried. RIP.

6. Warheads

Don't lie, you were totally the cool kid in class if you could handle warheads.

7. Push Pops

These also made it look like you had some wacky lipstick on, but hey, they were so good, who really cared?

8. Pixy Stick

Nothing like some flavored sugar for a mid-afternoon snack.

9. Fun Dip

The RazzApple Magic Dip was the best because it turned green, people! GREEN!

10. Runts

I bought these from every 25 cent turn machine ever. Then, one day, they just sort of left all of those candy machines... never to be heard from again.

11. Bubble Tape

Let's face it — gum was cooler when you cut it.

15 Kinds Of Ice Cream From Around The World

Countries have their own creative twists!

Who doesn't love ice cream? People from all over the world enjoy the frozen dessert, but different countries have their own twists on the classic treat.

1. Italy: Gelato

Gelato, perhaps one of the best-known varieties of ice cream from around the world, has less fat, more sugar and less air than other frozen desserts.

2. Turkey: Dondurma

In Turkey, dondurma’s elastic and stretchy texture and resistance to melting make it extremely popular with street vendors, who play with the ice cream before serving it to customers.

3. Japan: Mochi

The small ball is actually ice cream in the middle surrounded by a sticky rice cake.

4. Israel: Halva

The Israeli treat is made with sesame flavored halva, a compact honey-like candy, which is popular across the Middle East and Asia.

5. Iran: Faloodeh

Ice cream in Iran is often served with pasta noodles, rose water, lime juice and pistachios.

6. Germany: Spaghettieis

Germany’s take on the dessert is a spin on a dish of spaghetti: vanilla ice cream is run through a pasta maker to mimic spaghetti, strawberry sauce is drizzled on top to mimic tomato sauce and coconut flakes, shredded almonds or white chocolate is used to mimic the Parmesan cheese.

7. Mexico: Paletas

Paletas are extremely similar to popsicles, except that they must contain fresh fruit to be classified as such.

8. India: Kulfi

Kulfi is similar to ice cream, though its increased density and creaminess allows it to be molded and served on a popsicle stick and topped with pistachios.

9. Thailand: I Tim Pad

Thailand’s i tim pad, which is often sold by street vendors, is the rolled ice cream that has become a novelty dessert here in America.

10. China: Fried Ice Cream

Though supposedly invented in the United States, fried ice cream has become popular in Asia, and the Chinese version uses ice cream flavors like green tea and red bean, fried in a tempura batter.

11. Greece: Pagoto

Greek ice cream is a mix of gelato and dondurma, which makes sense considering its location in relation to Italy and Turkey.

12. Philippines: Sorbetes

Although it sounds like it, the Filipino dessert is not sorbet. It is cheese-flavored ice cream made with coconut milk and served in a bread bun.

13. Malaysia: Ais Kacang

The ice cream variety found in Malaysia and Singapore is actually shaved ice topped with cooked red beans and evaporated milk.

14. South Korea: J-Cone

The cone, made with crushed corn, resembles a churro, and ice cream is served on both ends of the J-shaped cone.

15. United States: Everything

The U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia and New Zealand have everything that you can imagine. Just think of all the varieties we have: the typical hard ice cream, frozen yogurt, Dippin’ Dots, soft serve, sorbet, Italian ice, custard ice cream, sherbet, snow cones, ice pops, milkshakes, ice cream cookie sandwiches and those skinny ice pop things in the plastic that you have to cut and no one knows the name of it, but you know exactly what I’m talking about.
