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

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

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?

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
