Retired/Nostalgia Food thread
those fuckers really knew how to market to kids
The new ones just aren't the same.
They just don't make em like they use to.
i mean if you're gonna come out of the gate with popsicles
The company that made these went out of business in the early 90's, they may never be enjoyed again but those of us remember must keep remembering the slime slurps
I've never seen those particular flavors of Five Alive or them in juice box form. But, my family got the cartons and the frozen cans of concentrate pretty often. Kroger nearby still has the concentrate cans.
I miss 7up popsicles. Both original and cherry 7up flavor. Nobody remembers them when I mention them, so maybe my area was just a test market. Definitely not just frozen 7up, so, I'm not sure ow to replicate them.
Crunchie Nuggets, I would eat these til I died, they were better than normal crunchie bars, and the crunchie rock variant they have now sucks ass.
Oh wow. The boku guy was probably one of my earliest memories. I remember thinking it must be a grownup drink cause I had no idea what he was talking about.
>went out of business in the early 90's
But they where around until the late 90's/very early 00's. How? Did a massive stockpile sit in a storage somewhere after the shutdown?
Holy shit, I completely forgot that these existed.
I miss these so much.
"00's kid" now a thing.
Born in 87 here.
Kill me already.
>completely unrealistic definition of what "hackers" can and do, do.
Pick one please.
It's one of the worst rated movies in the world. Master of disguise has higher ratings. The ONLY thing redeeming about that movie is your see Jolie's nipple for a split second.
even if they brought em back they wouldnt be as sour
Got these up in the north east. Not sure if they're regional or not though.
Being older than 30 doesn't make anyone younger than you not an adult nor incapable of reminiscing. You're just getting old and, worse yet, whiny about it.
I caught the tail-end of all of the "90s kid" stuff and while it's cool to be reminded of stuff from when I was 4-5 years old those memories are very faint and the trend has reasonably expired.
Damn, that just took me back.
Do original formula four lokos count? The new ones are just plain shit, the old ones were shit too but at least the old ones were shit that got you turnt
I always loved these. My friend used to have these and those Little Debbie Nutty Bars (which are absolute god tier) and we would eat them all the time. My parents never really bought those junky sweets. Crispy peanut butter anything is good.
I assume that it's the same as this? This stuff turned my teeth black.
They still make Uh Oh Oreos, its just boringly packaged now
Lol I saw those in big lots earlier today debated in Getting them big lots sells discounted products that's why they have weird products for sale so cheap when a company is about to stop selling a product they lend it to big lots I don't know the system I just read something about it on their website
I will never not be sad seeing one of these
>tfw dad would always buy me and my brother some when we went to get groceries at the small local market
>you will never again eat them while watching cartoons
>you will never again finish the chocolate for a tangy/sweet buzz light year face shaped colorful candy
This kills the man
Did you know licorice increases estrogen output in men?
Do you know any licorice loving men who ate it growing up and seem.. girly?
I remember chowing down on these about a decade ago, but I honestly can't remember if I liked them or not.
The most nostalgic food in my life. My mother always bought me a box of these at the store when I was 4-5 years old. Now she's bat shit insane :/
>changed the shapes back into the bullshit no fun allowed balls
>changed the recipe for "a new fruity flavor"
I cant even call it my favorite cereal anymore. Just look at this bowl of fun.
I fucking hated animal crackers. they were just dry, nasty tasting bread, something about the flavor and the locations I had them in was depressing.
but then I had animal cookies with the sprinkles, holy fuck those made me happy
>Once widely available in theU.S., it is not distributed anymore in the United States. Five Alive is, however, still widely distributed inCanada(particularly in Quebec) and in theUK, as a plastic bottled or canned drink, also in 250 ml cartons suitable forvending machinesor as a frozenconcentrate. Also available in 1.89L cartons or 2.44L plastic jugs), as well as 200mL tetrapak boxes.
I remember they held a promotion at rite aid where you could spin a wheel and win a prize. Ended up getting a really good soccer ball, but left in the backyard and my rabbit pooped all over it.
This thread reminded me of a happy meal I got back in the early 90s. Must have been 92-93.
The "toy" was a bag of tree seeds. I planted a tree, an elm tree I think, this was in GA, so there were pine trees everywhere and it really stood out as it got bigger each year.
Being the stupid kid I was, I planted it too close to the house, we moved away and when I was in town Id drive by my old house to see the tree still getting bigger.
The new owners cut it down around 2011 and it made me sad.
Alas the inexorable march of time has failed to cease at precisely the moment when you and you alone were capable of longing for years not so long past that their memories and your feelings for them could be recaptured with a mere image of an advertisement for brightly colored, mass-produced sugar and salt clusters. Woe to the day when your generation's snackfood is not as well remembered as the next generation's junkfood.
>Used to be a fat little shit at school
>Mom would always pack 10 Uh-Oh, Oreos into my lunchbox
>Always ate every bite
>Started getting bullied for my weight one day
>Uh-Oh Oreos became the main target of it
>Kids started picking on me by making me do something wrong then smacking an oreo on me and saying ''UH OH OREOS!"
>for example they would throw an oreo at me while I was drawing or writing and say 'uh oh oreos' when I made a mistake or smear my ass with normal chocolate oreos then say "anon pooped his pants! Uh Oh! Oreos!"
>grew to hate these oreos because of them
>my last ever memory of that school is crying in the nurses office because I scraped my knee and turned around to see a little man made out of uh oh oreos and the other kids saying ''he tripped you, uh oh oreos!''
At this point I'm sure it's just nostalgia fogging my memory, but I remember eating these all the time as a kid and I thought they were just the absolute god-king of all candy bars. To this day, nothings ever really come close to how much I enjoyed these things.
I didn't expect that. Sad ;_;
Reminds me of a childrens story I read where a young tree dreams of being turned into a treasure chest full of riches but instead it's chopped down and has a sad existence as an wooden manger for livestock. But then one day the baby Jesus is born and sleeps in it and the tree is happy.
I don't know if these are discontinued but I can't find them in my local stores.. the icing was fantastic.
I remember coming home from a hard day in the third grade to an empty house. Turning on YTV to watch Video Arcade Top 10 and breaking out a box of these bad boys.
Sometimes if I think reeeal hard aboutt hem, I can still taste them
They still make them, they're bad now.
They've been slowly changing the recipe for years.
The icing is fuckin' garbage now, it's less sugar and more artificial bullshit and flavoring.
The little crackers arn't even gramcrackers either, they are gram FLAVOURED crackers now and they're horrible hard little fuckin' things.
These were so god damned tasty.
this thread has been remixed by dj chopped and skrewed
>I scraped my knee and turned around to see a little man made out of uh oh oreos and the other kids saying ''he tripped you, uh oh oreos!''
That is some brutal fucking next level banter.
god fucking shit anon, are you me?
>i can still vaguely taste them if i think hard enough
I don't have nostalgia for cheap junk food and i feel sorry for all the victims of child abuse in this thread. I think being in a loving foster home would have been better than getting poisoned with artificial chemicals by your munchausen-by-proxy parents.
That said, when I was fairly young (5 or 6 maybe), my parents used to make these in big batches, and I'd even take them to school sometimes.
Then we moved and somehow the iron got lost in the shuffle. I guess krumkake wasn't a huge priority or maybe pre-internet the irons weren't the easiest thing to acquire. I occasionally have the commercial version when I have the opportunity and the smell makes me nostalgic. But it's still not quite the same. It will never be the same.
Man, this thread has some drpaved nostalgia.. Altoids? Really?
Liked the picture of the gay couple and the black kid though.. Just imagine the cat thinking in some narrator voice like a geico commercial. Words are not allowed to describe such things, as they may offend some feminist/activist that wants to be locked up in a cage and raped by rhinoceroses then left to die. But words are not needed. Pictures say more than words.
Anytime my mom took me to our local Blockbuster i would ask her to buy me these. I didn't like hard candy at the time and these were heaven for me in terms of sweetness and gummy chewiness. They stopped stocking them a year or two before Blockbuster closed and it honestly made me sad to see them go.
I hear they still make them but the recipe isn't the same. Heck, they brought back Toast Crunch, another nostalgia favorite of mine, but it too has suffered recipe mix-ups. It just doesn't taste as good as i remember.
Miss these 90s flavours of Monster Munch that even came with free tazos. Remember tazos? Holy shit it's just not the same anymore. I'm sick of the "OLD" new monster munch wannabes, "it's great to be back on pack," yeah you've been back on pack for like 5 years now, FUCK OFF!!!
Beef burger and the limited edition vanilla ice cream flavour were great too.
They still make these, they can be found primarily in dollar stores. They're amazing and you should try finding some. I also like their "smoothie" peanut butter coated peanut butter cups, which you can sometimes find in dollar stores as well.
There's nothing even memorable about the 00's other than 9/11. Seriously, what "defined" that decade??? I don't remember anything unique about the fashion... (emo kids?) Cars(still look the same!)??Music (just sounded like late 90's pop and nu metal!)??
Seriously... What defined that decade other than a terrorist attack?
Newgrounds and Toonami.
All day, errday
>you will never be a middle schooler again
90's Walkers just looked more appealing.
Its not the same anymore if its in a plastic bottle
german reporting in
Yeah. Pizzerias, O'boises, Tato Skins. They were all great.
Still make em bruh
I literally just had one
Oh fuck, when I was a kid my dad would take me to dave & busters every year for my birthday and I would always buy like four of these things with my tickets. I would squirt half of a tube into my mouth and just sit there in ecstasy.
>mfw i pass these every day at the convenience store
are they really that good? i always envisioned them as standard tortilla chips with green coloring and an insignificant amount of added flavor.
I have no idea what the name of these candies my grandma used to get are. They were tiny and black about half the size of tic tacs and mostly flat. They were bitter and tasted like black licorice slightly.
I loved this for the 3 weeks or whatever it was available
TRIPLE BERRY SHOCK
They probably still make these, but since we're on a nostalgia trip...
They'll never make gummy sweets as good as these again.
>tfw had it ever occurred to me that saving the box, even just the box itself with all these limited-time cereals could probably net you a small fortune these days I'd be rolling in it by now
>ecto cooler is coming back
I'm definitely buying at least one pack. If it ends up being as good as nostalgia remembers, I can honestly see myself getting a bunch of it and risking a diabetic coma by having at least one every day.
they gross & i like gross
n my stockings
use to be in 7/11's
>mfw dis bread
mah shizz rite thur
seen them wouldn't want 2 b dem
i eat so much of these and I'm in my 30's
First thing I thought of.
Anyone else remember the Thirst Crusher?
Christ, I feel like I could cry. Back in high school Super Walmart sold these in a vending machine for $1 each. They all had unique names like Nirvana, Drive, and Power, and some absurd phrase or reference under the cap. My favorite was Orange Carrot Elixir. Now they're ALL fucking "Elixir". The ones that are left. RIP Dragon.
I bought them less often when the vending machine stopped stocking them. Walmart had them shelved, no refrigeration, at $1+tax. Then they raised the price to like $1.25 or $1.50 or some shit. When they started using plastic bottles, that was the last straw.
>Give it back! This isn't right! That was ours!
