If there’s one thing that Millennials love, it’s remembering all the things they enjoyed from their childhood, in an attempt to escape the stressors of present reality.
And when it comes to stress, what’s better than turning to comfort food?
I’m talking Pop Tarts, Sunny D, Waffle Crisp. The kind of snacks you wished your parents would stock the cabinets with.
Unfortunately, not all snack foods stand the test of time. So instead of visiting the vending machine, let’s take a moment to honor these 14 discontinued snacks millennials will remember.
1. Allow me to break the ice:
WOW, I forgot how strong these guys were.
2. The fancy man’s snack:
You can never go wrong with peanuts. Unless you’re allergic.
3. That’s so twisted:
How could they ever do away with Twisted Puffs?!
4. Speaking of Twist…
Wait, this was a thing? Ew…
5. The real tragedy here:
Never forget. The cereal of cereals.
Too much tart, not enough pop.
7. I love RITZ bits to bits:
Who doesn’t want more “mmm” in the middle?
8. What’s so funny?
100% artificial flavoring.
9. Silly Rabbit:
Trix are forever.
10. Lollipop, lollipop, oh lolli, lolli, lolli:
Paint the town, not your tongue.
11. SWOOPS, yeahahah!
Everything is better when it’s shaped like a Pringle.
12. Pepsi Blue:
I’m addicted to you, but don’t you know that you’re toxic?
13. Is it gum or is it bandaids?
Only one way to find out!
14. Better left forgotten:
Part of what makes Oreos so satisfying is the crunchy, creamy mouth feel.
Ok, so maybe there’s a reason some of these snack foods were taken off the shelf. Not every idea is a winner. Besides, we’ve gotta make room for the snacks of future generations.
But Waffle Crisp. Waffle Crisp deserved so much better.
