Discontinued Food from the 1990's that we remember
Start writing a post

Oh the 90's and the 2000's, who doesn't remember these glorious times? I'm so glad that I was born during that decade and got to experience everything from fashion to technologically and to amazing food!

Yep, you read that correctly! Food from the 2000's were all over the place with a variety of strange creations and taste. See how many you can remember while strolling through memory lane. This isn't even half of the list but fear not, a part two may be in the future!

Pepsi Blue

This is something that I wish I remembered what it tasted like. My Mom loves Pepsi so I remember getting it but not the taste. It was branded as berry so I assumed that it tasted like blueberry or even blue raspberry

Wonder Ball

Okay, so they still make wonder balls because I found one last year. It isn't the same, the excitement us kids had when these came out is gone. The little candy or stickers found inside of a ball of chocolate was amazing

Doritos 3D

OMG, Doritos 3D were so good. They didn't taste like the chips but the cheese was extra that it like exploded in your mouth. Why are these off the shelf?

Heinz Colored Ketchup

Ketchup

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/490470215639758010/?lp=true

I swear to you that my Mom had all of these ketchups. They may look nasty or unappetizing but trust me, they tasted exactly like ketchup, they just looked like they came out of a Power Rangers show

Pepsi Twist

https://www.influenster.com/reviews/pepsi-twist-23

Once again I wish I remembered what Pepsi Twist tasted like. Right now it sounds really good so I think we need to bring these back for nostalgia. Who knew Pepsi got so snazzy back in the day

Bubble Beeper Gum

Beeper Gum

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/3870349651521961/?lp=true

Look at the packaging, I mean what kid didn't want beeper gum? Between the little messages and bright, neon colors, I don't know what the best part about the gum was.

Ouch! Bubble Gum

Ouch Gum

https://www.reddit.com/r/nostalgia/comments/8gy1eo/hubba_bubba_ouch_bubble_gum_the_best_gum_i_swear/

Who doesn't remember the little tin of gum that looked like band-aids when you opened it up? I can't remember if these were sour or not but I always wanted it for the tin

Altoids Sour

Altoids Sour

https://www.reddit.com/r/nostalgia/comments/6ifzvg/altoid_sours_dont_know_why_they_were_discontinued/

These things were beyond sour that I don't think I officially ate one fully. My sister had them and I hate anything sour so I tried it. Let's just say it took awhile for your mouth to recover from these

Fruitopia

Fruitopia Machine

https://www.reddit.com/r/nostalgia/comments/5osfji/fruitopia_and_its_classic_vending_machine/

I would do anything for Fruitopia right now. At my local high school they had a vending machine of it and my sister would bring me home the peach one. It was so good and I will forever be in mourning

Sprite Remix

Sprite Remix

https://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/cult-snacks-that-have-made-a-comeback/14/

Oh Sprite Remix, how I truly did not like the taste of you. I think I tried the Aruba one and it was pink. I think it was berry like or something and my Mom gave the whole case to my sister's friend because she loved it and we didn't

Trix Yogurt

Trix Yogurt

https://www.reddit.com/r/nostalgia/comments/8zchxw/trix_yogurt/

Silly rabbit, where did this yogurt go? It was cool considering that the yogurt was two different colors until you mixed them together and made a strange color

String Things

String Things

https://www.change.org/p/general-mills-bring-back-fruit-string-things

Again I don't remember liking String Things. Sure, they were cool to make different things out of but the more you ate them the more blah they got

Bubble Jug

Bubble Jug

https://twitter.com/bubblejug1

Who sat there one day and came up with powder gum? You would think that you would just swallow the powder but no, it really turned into bubblegum. This was so cool when I was like 7 years old

Blues Clues Applesauce

Applesauce

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/328973947765600109/?lp=true

Blues Clues Applesauce was one of the best foods I ate as a child. It tasted like berries and was so good, I can remember eating it during the hot days in the summer. Can Blue come back and bring this with her?

Kudos

Kudos Bars

https://www.reddit.com/r/nostalgia/comments/1aiavg/the_hell_happened_to_kudos_bars_they_were/

Kudos were sold at my middle school before the whole health thing went into effect and all us kids loved them. They were pretty much a chocolate granola bar but these had a different taste to them

Dannon Sprinklins

Sprkinlins

http://the-foods-we-loved.wikia.com/wiki/Dannon_Sprinkl%27ins

I completely forgot about this yogurt and I want it back. Before we had all those add in yogurts, these were the first for us kids. The sprinkles would mix and change the color of the yogurt…OMG

Oreo Caksters

Cakesters

https://www.amazon.com/Oreo-Original-Cakesters-Snack-Packages/dp/B000TFSM92

The vanilla kind were so much better than the regular chocolate oreo. They weren't too sweet (Though they had too much icing) and disappeared not shortly after its release

Reeses swoops

Swoops

http://www.mikescandywrappers.com/swoops_reeses0104.html

Pringles or chocolate, you decide. I'm not a big peanut butter person but these were good yet messy considering they would melt within five seconds of holding one chip or piece

Jell-o Pudding Bites

Pudding Bites

http://dlisted.com/2018/06/08/hot-slut-of-the-day-1628/

Oh the pudding bites. I had the strawberry and vanilla and no thank you. There was something strange about eating pudding in gummy form like that

Philadelphia snack bars

Snack Bars

http://dlisted.com/2018/10/28/hot-sluts-of-the-day-202/

I always asked my Mom to buy these and I honestly don't know if she ever did. They just looked so good and I have no idea what happened to them

Jif Sensations

Peanut Butter

https://www.flickr.com/photos/thedamnmushroom/2610152458

I am mourning the loss of this peanut butter as well because I would die for a jar of it right now. The berry PB was so good on crackers that I wish I could still taste it

Skittles Bubblegum

Skittles Gum

https://www.reddit.com/r/nostalgia/comments/6y5zii/skittles_gum/

Skittles or gum? We all know why these things were taken off the shelf. Once it was in your mouth you had no idea what to. Do you swallow it like a skittle or keep chewing at nothing until it dissolved?

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Netflix

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

276067
Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
