8 Foods We All Had In Our Lunchboxes In Elementary School

90s kids only


Its safe to say we all have certain foods or candies that we see in the grocery store that bring back memories of our childhood. For me being born in the 90s and growing up in the early two-thousands, some of my favorite foods are still around but not as prevalent. I would give anything to be able to live off of lunchables and cosmic brownies again. So here is a little trip down memory lane of the 8 foods I remember loving the most from my childhood. Maybe you can relate.

1. Pop Tarts

Served best for breakfast warmed up in the toaster. Parents would always tell you to only eat one but two was just too tempting.

2. Kid Cuisine

Best lunchtime snack. My personal favorite was the chocolate pudding with the sprinkles.

3. Grilled Cheese

To this day I still enjoy a gooey grilled cheese. Normally made with a slice of craft singles and buttered toast.

4.Sunny D

After a long day of playing outside or soccer practice Sunny D, pumped with sugar, was the best orange drink out there. They were always a treat when someone brought a case of them home.

5.Fruit Cocktail

We were all a little bit of picky eater when we were little but without a doubt when this fruit cocktail appeared on the plate we ate it all. My favorite to pick from the bowl were the cherry slices.

6.Cosmic Brownies

When you opened your lunch box during lunchtime at school if you had one of these sprinkled brownies packaged in there you had the hot ticket of the lunch room.

7. Trix Yogurt

"Silly rabbit, trix are for kids" the color swirl was always really appealing as a little kid and the taste of the yogurt was even better.

8. Baby Bottle Pop

Any excuse to still channel our inner baby. But it's even better because its full of sugar. It used to be a cool thing to carry these around in your front pocket.

The nostalgia of looking back on loved foods hits hard. Hopefully future generations to come can learn to appreciate foods that were loved back in our childhood time. It will be interesting to see what the same type of list of foods will look like in ten to twenty years. So go out and treat yourself to a fruit by the food or dunkaroo because you deserve it.

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.

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.

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.
