7 Snacks That Will Take Any 2000s Kid Back To Their Childhood

It has been over two decades since the 2000s generation was born, and now their childhoods are part of the past. But even if it only feels like yesterday, it has probably been a while for many of you to have seen or been reminded of some of the most iconic snacks and drinks our parents would pack for lunch. So let's reminisce and take a snack down memory lane! Let's see if any of these ring a bell:

1. The best mini snacks were the Gripz.

Gripz were the mini versions of our favorite snacks and they had three original flavors, including the chips deluxe cookies, cheez-it crackers, and the graham cracker. They would also have some other flavors like nacho chips and rainbow chips deluxe cookies. This snack is still popular and available at Walmart today!

2. Sink your two front teeth into a huggie.

Hug fruit barrels, or "huggie" as we kids used to call them, were popular fruit flavored drinks. They are still quite popular today and you can still buy them at local grocery stores. Were you the kid who sunk your two front teeth into the foil top or were you the kid you had to remove the whole foil covering before you sipped the drink?

3. The Kellogg's Yogos Bites will forever be missed.

These fruit flavored yogurt bites were the snack that tasted like a candy. They were always popular, but apparently not popular enough. There was also controversy with the recipe, so it was discontinued in the late 2000s.

4. Scooby Doo snacks made dog inspired food cool.

These bone shaped crackers might look like a treat you'd give to your dog, but no they are for kids! The themed crackers were always a fun and interesting snack to have, and are still available in most grocery stores today.

5. Did you gush over these Gusher gummies?

Do you remember the burst of flavor you'd get when you bit into a fruit Gushers gummy? They are still thriving after the test of time, so if you forgot how they tasted, go buy yourself some and find out all over again!

6. Mini breadsticks and cheese dip were in everyone's lunchbag.

How come these are still around, but you probably haven't seen one of these since your last day at elementary school? While they never looked that exciting, they were definitely a pleasant surprise for a snack!

7. The popular Yoplait yogurt made even a picky kid want to eat healthy.

Trix yogurts were the only two colored snacks that made kids forget that they were eating healthy. While Yoplait still has some swirled yogurts today, the Trix ones have been discontinued mostly, but you can buy them in bulk from some online vendors.

Now you probably have some nostalgia from being reminded of your favorite snacks from your younger days. So go walk back down memory lane, or just your local grocery store's snack aisle, and go snack away!

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
