Lunchables may have been an iconic DIY school snack kit from the late 80s, but the Lunchables Cookies and Frosting packs have endured up until just recently. If you were a kid of the 80s, you must remember these fondly and are sad they are no longer available.
These delicious decorate-your-own-cookie kits came with two semi-soft cookies and sweet spreadable icing that made for a delicious treat.
Smurf Berry Crunch and Smurf Magic Berries
A breakfast classic, Post's Smurf Berry Crunch was a fruity red and blue cereal that came out in 1983. With the Smurfs being painfully cute, blue creatures, they had their own animated T.V. series from 1981 to 1989 and first appeared in a Belgian comic strip in 1958.
As they rose in popularity, they eventually got their own fruit-flavored cereal, with colored bright red and purple, and the box featured Papa Smurf about to eat a spoonful. Smurf Magic Berries made their appearance with mini marshmallows a few years later.
When Baby Shark was about to attack the candy aisle, we knew what to doo doo doo doo. You can technically still buy Shark Bite gummies from Betty Crocker. But kids nowadays will never know the thrill of finding a rare great white shark in the package of sweet fruit punch treats.
The limited-edition cereal was described as "berry fin-tastic with delicious berry flavor, soft marshmallows, and a crispy crunch with every bite.
The caffeine-free, transparent soda U.S. had a short run in the early 1990s. Crystal Pepsi was initially launched by Pepsi as a response to the growing concern for purity among its customers. However, this version of Pepsi failed miserably due to the following reasons: Taste - Even though it claimed to be like Pepsi, it didn't taste as sweet.
It was unique, but it didn't taste quite like Pepsi. Because it is something that instills some severe nostalgia, Crystal Pepsi has made some limited-time comebacks in the past few years.
Life Savers Holes
These bite-sized Life Savers pieces hit the candy aisle in 1990. The candy's name has to do with its shape that resembles that of a traditional ring-style life preserver that we know as a "lifesaver." They came in a variety of flavors like minty Peppermint and island fruits, yet they were still markedly different from Tic-Tacs.
In 1991 they did face a recall after there were reports of kids and teens biting off the flip-top plastic cap.
