Are you nostalgic for the comforting foods and drinks of the last millennium? If you grew up in the 90s, then easy bake ovens, Nintendo consoles, and Bop It were staples of your childhood memories. While plenty of these brands are still around today, many were left behind in the 90s.
One user on a popular internet forum was thinking about how good things used to taste. Here are the top responses.
Pizza Hut Buffet
Who remembers sitting at a Pizza Hut to enjoy their all-you-can-eat buffet with a pitcher of root beer?
One user shared: “Nothing will ever come close to that ambiance.”
Another user commented: “Those breadsticks in the restaurant were on another level.”
While many Pizza Hut locations still offer a lunch buffet, it’s nothing close to what it used to be.
Pizzerias Chips and Clearly Canadian
You might not have seen this combo in a very long time! While a few users stated that they still sell both Clearly Canadian in some stores in the Midwest, they are far from plentiful. This rare find is a hard one to still find!
One user commented: “Confirmed! Still taste the same.”
Jello Pudding Pops
These sweet pudding pops were a staple of many children in the 90s. While they were discontinued, they were reintroduced in the early 2000s under Popsicle. However, they stopped making them later due to lack of demand, ending the pudding pops forever. While you can’t buy them directly in the store anymore, they sell mold kits at Walmart.
You might not recognize this brand name, but you won’t soon forget the colorful fruit on every package! Fruittopia took over many of the school's lunch lines and was a popular drink in the 90s. Coca-Cola ultimately decided to discontinue this beverage because of a lack of sales. However, many of their most popular flavors later became the Minute Maid flavors you know today.
Every gas station and grocery store had shelves of this popular ’90s drink. A beloved drink for many Reddit users, this one was thoroughly missed!
One user shared: “The Energy flavor in the glass bottle was my go-to, I spent way too much money on those.”
Burger King Whoppers and Fries
While it’s no secret that you can still go through a Burger King drive-thru to get these beloved favorites, the flavors aren’t the same as in the 90s. While some commenters claim they prefer the new fry taste, many still long for the days of lower prices and more flavor.
One user shared: “Burger King fries were the best fries in the world in the late 90s. Then they said “nah, we hate being elite” and changed them to maybe the worst.”
Other users reminisced about days of dollar whoppers and the unique and amazing flavor of the fries.
Book It! Personal Pan Pizza
Kids of the 90s might recall getting a personal pizza reward from Pizza Hut if they read a certain level of books.
One user shared: “My kid’s school still does Book It. The first time he brought home his free personal pizza voucher, it was a total flashback for me.”
While your own kids can still experience this magic, it’s only for kids.
