Subject: 90s snack food you can no longer find

Written By: Trimac20 on 02/18/06 at 5:59 am

Is there any snack food (I'm talking an actual type of snack food, not just a brand.etc, that was widely available in supermarkets) that was common in the 90s but is nigh impossible to find today? One example I can think of here in Australia are the Crunch Muesli Bars (made mainly by Uncle Tobies, but different brands) which I remember as a kid but haven't seen for ages.

Oh gosh, there was this one fruit snack I remember, it was called "Fruit String Thing" by Betty Crocker.  It was a "string" that was fruit flavored candy, and it was laid down on a piece of cardboard (looked like a picture, or was sometimes just a swirl), and you peeled it from the cardboard and ate it--good stuff.

Yeah...I remember the heyday of fruit snacks in the mid-90s when I was in elementary school. Everybody showed off their fruit roll ups and fruit wrinkles competitively...I always felt left out for not having them. And Gushers were much more common until the early '00s. Also, remember the Cap'N Crunch commercials from the mid-90s? I remember them being very distinctive.

Another few snacks from Australia that were around in the early 90s that you can't get anymore were Muncheros (which were just corn chips shredded into smaller pieces & with sea salt on them & Arnott's Nix Nax(spelling?). They were both from about 1993 & weren't around for long if i recall.

Yeah, I only see them in 7-11 strangely enough (I wonder if that's just a South Bay thing, LOL).

This is more early '90s, even late '80s, but does anyone recall a snack mix called Doo Dads? They're basically identical to Chex Mix etc, but I always thought it was a teeny bit better.

P.S. Not a snack food per se, but I miss the old logo for Doritos in the pre 1993 era or so. More boxy and plain, but I liked it. :D

I always Roll-ups (like Muesli Bars) were a distinctly Australian thing, but then again, I don't know much about roll-ups at all. I do remember how they would stick to my teeth and the roof of my mouth how my fingers got all sticky from picking at my teeth (from saliva mixed with sugar). They advertised them as if they were real-fruit pieces; they just happened to taste like candy.

I haven't seen Shock Tarts in any regularity in a long time, but now and then you can find them around here. Orbits, I remember when that stuff came out, and everyone thought it was the coolest thing in the world. Combos are drowning us here, they're still pretty popular.

Sno-Caps?  If you're talking about Sno-Caps they actually were around in the late 70's, I think... then they disappeared (as far as I know) for a long time, and reappeared in movie theater snack bars during the 90's... They come in the same type of package as Goobers and Raisin-ets.

I agree with those who said Dunkaroos.  My mother always thought they were too sugary so I had to go to my friend or cousin's house to get my "Dunkaroo Fix". 

Another of my favorite candies from the ninties were Cry Baby Tears, which were shaped like tear drops and had pictures of all these characters with sour faces on the back of the box.  I haven't seen them in years.

The chocolate-filled koalas used to be called Koala Yummies. They're sold as Koala's March now. They're made by Lotte, a South Korea-Japan conglomerate. For some reason they stopped selling them in the US but they're back now. If you can't find them in a store you can always order them at lotteusainc.com

I remember going to the San Diego zoo a few years ago when I was out it CA on a choir trip, several months before the Koala Yummies had shown up in MN again, and me and a few friends more or less freaked out when we saw them at the gift shop by the koalas. I bought two and brought one home for my brother.

I thought I had lost Dunkaroos for good when I suddenly found them stored box among box on the second to bottom shelf of my local Coles Supermarket in the snack foods/lunchbox aisle.

I was insanely happy.

One food for me was Goldfish. Originally done by Petteridge farms (?) in America, a company over here in Australia adapted them and they were great but one day they just kind of vanished. It was really sad cos I really liked the tomato flavour. Oh! *bounces up and down exitedly* and mixing the cheese and tomato ones in my mouth. Tasted like crunchy cheese pizza if memory serves.

And Tang. I know that's still around here somewhere, I just haven't had it in ages (since the 90's) and it reminds me strongly of that time in my life

I loved those--at first under the chocolate layer there was a toy ball with a Disney figure inside.  After a few years they got rid of the toy ball/figure and just started putting candies under the chocolate layer.  They weren't as exciting after that.

Maybe a lot of kids were accidently swallowing the ball under the chocolate layer(?)

About 1990 to '92 or so, back at the height of the Ninja Turtles craze, Hostess was putting out a vanilla-pudding filled pie (just like their chococolate pies or lemon / apple / cherry pies) with a green glaze frosting on them.  I believe they were called Turtle Pies - or at least, that's how my best friend, Doug, and I referred to them.  The vanilla pudding was supposed to be the toxic "ooze" that mutated the Turtles, and we loved the hell out of those things.  They even had the Ninja Turtles on the wrapper.  Good times.  Good tooth-rotting, high-calorie  times.

And of course, let's not forget the classic Jolt Cola.  Someone mentioned "Surge" but I think Jolt still stands as the all time balls-to-the-wall over-caffinated originator of the "power cola."

"Hey, you can't talk about food products of the 90s without mentioning Crystal Pepsi:

http://crystalpepsi.captainmike.org/crystal_bottle5.jpg


"It had to be the biggest soft drink fad of all time. A transparent version of Pepsi's regular cola. And it was a mega-flop, too.

"I remember it came out in the summer of 93 with a huge marketing blitz. They wanted people to think it was somehow more 'pure' than regular cola because it was clear. The ads on tv featured the Van Halen song 'Right Now' and imitated its video.

"But it didn't catch on. It tasted just like regular Pepsi, except it was a bit weaker. It felt funny, because it tasted like Pepsi but didn't look like it. Hardly anything memorable. It was gone after about a year.

"My mom bought a few cases of the stuff for us, so I had the chance to drink several cans of it. Whenever I think of 1993, I always think of Crystal Pepsi."

I swear the shape changed the flavor of the chip...the cooler ranch ones...mmm...I can still taste them.

I've been looking all over the internet for the name of these one cookies my dad would buy like 8 or years ago. They were cookie "sticks" or something and the sugar ones had sprinkles but they also had chocolate chip. I was young when I ate them so I don't remember what they're called but they were soooooooo so good.

Also, Koala Yummies were the sheesh..as were dunkaroos. Stuffed bagel bites may have been early 2000's but mmmm.

last night i was trying to remember a snack food that i used to take in my lunch... it only came in playing card sized bags and my best way to discribe it is flavored crunchy barley... it wasnt barley tho i don't think... but it came in ranch, bbq, salt & vinegar flavours. I also think there may have been a pizza flavour, but i don't remember... the packages were all different colors based on the flavour, just like cornnutz are now...

I liked something called Wise chips. Those were really good, but I think they got take off the market because of a chemical in them or somethng. All I remember is that the new said it called "anal leakage"  ;D and they just disappeared from the stores around here.

Not that I'd want to continue eating anything that caused anal leakage, but I had no side effects myself.

Ah, Olestra

A great idea defeated by an overly-broad FDA warning.  To this day, all you have to do is mention "anal leakage" and the first word that pops into people's minds is "Olestra".  And vice-versa.

You'd pretty much have to eat a bag or two of Olestrachips a day to have any troubles.  But because it was a possible side effect, people blamed the product any time they had the sh!ts.  And anybody who was watching their weight probably wasn't eating a bag of potato chips a day to begin with, so cutting the fat content of the chips wasn't going to result in immediate or significant weight loss.

But the marketing.  Unless you were selling laxatives, that FDA warning was the kiss of death.

(And then there's the whole "Activia" bio-active yogurt thing, but that was about 15 years too late to save olestra-based fried food.  Again, the people who want bio-active yogurt to help their poop... aren't the target market for potato chips.  And the people who eat potato chips aren't particularly interested in having their food act as a laxative.)

I remember some instant popcorn - called "Pop Quiz" or "Quiz Pop" - but when you put the bag in the microwave everyone was supposed to guess what color it was, then you'd open it and see who was right.  I don't think the color added any flavor to the popcorn, but it sure was a lot of fun to do when friends were staying over!

And this is more 80s, but I miss the Disney ice creams, the vanilla and chocolate Mickey faces and the popsicles shaped like the different Disney characters.  Those were so good!

Yeah...I remember the heyday of fruit snacks in the mid-90s when I was in elementary school. Everybody showed off their fruit roll ups and fruit wrinkles competitively...I always felt left out for not having them. And Gushers were much more common until the early '00s.

Oh man... I saw a Gushers commercial recently and got all nostalgic. I remember my mom used to pack my lunch with either Gushers, Fruit Roll-Ups, or Fruit by the Foot. (It was a foot of fruit! Or, well, fruit-like substance! All rolled up in a ball! And you unrolled it and ended up with this long-ass string of wax paper!) That actually reminds me... does anyone remember that gum that came in a long string, all rolled up, almost like Scotch tape? You'd get this roundish plastic package and you'd pull some gum through the little hole with a serrated edge to cut off a piece? What was that called?

And speaking of gum, who remembers Fruit-A-Burst? I remember they had Mint-A-Burst, Cinn-A-Burst, and Fruit-A-Burst. I loved Fruit-A-Burst because it actually tasted like fruit, unlike Juicy Fruit, which was/is just blandly sweet. (Juicy Fruit is neither juicy, nor fruity. Discuss.) But then they gradually phased out Fruit-A-Burst, even though they kept selling the other two flavors. That was unfortunate.

Ritz Air Crisps. I remember during the summer of 1998 I spent the vast majority of the time with my niece and my nephews because it was the last few months I had left in my hometown. I bought those for them a lot and they, as well as me loved them. I graduated highschool that May and was gonna be heading to college so I wanted to get as much time to spend with them as I could.

From the UK

Sky ice-cream bars. They had chocolate on the outside, and inside, a layer of ice-cream with the centre a bubbly chocolate like Wispa. My dad used to get them all the time and they were delicious.

Fish 'n Chips - little biscuits that tasted like fish and chips. I wish I could still buy them but I'm not sure they were as good as I think I remember them, kind of fish-tinted specs kicking in!

Secret bars from Nestle. They had chocolate on the outside kind of like a 'nest' pattern and a creamy, Walnut-whip centre. I had wikipedia this one to remind me of the full details. I think I only ever ate one and wasn't that impressed.

Feast ice-cream bars without the stick. They were the best, so much better than the original one on a stick, the only one available now. This is the one I miss most of all.

Squeeze Its - fruit juice drinks that came in small plastic bottles with weird twist off tops. they had different names for each flavor like 'smarty arty orange' and 'mean green puncher'

Corn Nuts - small bags of roasted corn. came in all kinds of flavors.

Jones Soda - popular as hell in Vancouver in 1998 - 1999. I still drink them today lol

Hot Rods - thin pepperoni sticks made by schneider. Actaually pretty good considering how cheap they were. I still find them around here occasionally

My faves that have been mentioned:

Bugles (I still see these, but never in the GOOD flavors, cheese and ranch)
Combos (Still see these in Cali, but not in many flavors)
Pizzaria's (I can still remember that taste, so addictively GOOD)

And I gotta bring up a few new ones,
Nintendo Cereal from the 80's, 2 cereals in one box, separate bags, I remember them being good, but I was like 5
Josta Cola, probably the first soda to have Guarana in it, it was purple with a panther on the bottle and tasted like banana-peels
Red Devil, an early energy drink that didn't make it
Ecto-cooler juice boxes!  so poisonously good!

Also, I could use help to remember the name of this one cereal that was kinda like mini-wheats but with fruit in the center, like strawberry filled, and they were about the size of chex, but wheat-ey.  I'd kill for some of them.  I think Nabisco made them?

Fruit Stripe Gum, or any of the nostalgic Bubbleicious flavors(cotton candy..etc?) def can't find those anymore. Or Bubble tape!

Oh yeah and Bugles were a huge favorite of mine growing up, especially cheese flavored..mm!

There was also this cracker called "Munchies" or something, they were ranch flavored. I know there's a Munchies snack mix today, but it's not the same thing. The crackers were like octagon shaped and had ridges..I dunno I loved them lol.

Half snack food half cereal it was hidden treasures basically captn crunch with this pink filling in some of the pieces and the others didn't have any they stopped making it but it was sooooo good in like 1993


Hidden Treasures!!!!!!  I was searching google for the past hour trying to find this specific thing I was remembering from being a kid. I just had a vague picture of an outer some kind of yellow coating and pink 'yogurt-y' creamy center. It has been driving me CRAZY!!!!!!!  Thanks so much for ending my crazy rampage. Thank you Thank you! I was searching forever, I think you and I are the only ones who remember them..haha

  On another note, remember Alpine Whites? I think Nestle made them, they looked just like a Nestle Crunch. They were white chocolate with like almonds or something. SO yummy
I actually saw 3D doritos a few months ago at Walmart but they only have jalapeño cheddar now. The 4 or 5 times I've seen them in the last 10 years it's always that flavor. Or maybe it's just my bad luck, as I hate that flavor. I still buy them and eat them on principal though.
Dunkaroos, how I miss you! I've talked about that one a few times over the years.
And it's not a snack food but it's related, I miss The Noid! The old Dominos slogan Avoid the Noid. Crazy little red guy with long ears. Back when your pizza was free if it took longer than 30 minutes to deliver. Ah..the good ol' days.  :)

Wow...alot of these are bringing back some sweet memories!

I loved Cheeto's Paws.  I think the last time I bought a bag was in 1994 or early '95.  If they brought those back, I'd have to stock up on 'em for sure.

Someone mentioned "Bon Bon" ice cream.  I used to love the ones that were chocolate flavored covered in chocolate (and I loved the commercial too... "the thing about a bon bon...it's almost always gone-gone").  :-D  I recall seeing a package of vanilla bon bons in a grocery store in Honolulu around mid 2005.  Haven't seen the chocolate ones in a loooooooooong time though.

Quick question... Do any of you remember the small foil wrapped hollow chocolate trucks they used to sell @ Shell stations?  This would have been around '89 or '90.  The Shell station was the only place that had them.  Anytime I had to fuel up my car, I'd always grab a couple and they were all kinds of deliciousness!

I've looked around for what the name of these were everywhere. But, I cannot find out. So, maybe you all can help.

I know they were out in late 95 and early 96, because that's when my mom got remarried and I ate them when we first moved in with my stepdad.

They were some kind of cookie. They had a chocolate filling like a Hershey's Kiss in the middle. They were shaped like kisses as well. But, had a cookie shell. And, they were coated in chocolate and sprinkles as well. They also had a vanilla filled flavor.

They may have been regional. I'm in the Eastern/Central part of the US.

Anyone know?

EDIT: Nevermind. I found them. They are called Fundamentals! God, those things were so good. I would probably sacrifice my left foot to go back in time and get some.

Okay, there's a snack-bar from the early 90s that I can't find any mention of online. They were called Donna Reed Snack Bars or something, and it definitely used The Donna Reed Show (from the 60s) as its main selling point. I have no idea why they would do that in the early 90s, perhaps because it was on Nick at Nite at the time. Anyway, they were your standard not-so-healthy granola bar type, with strawberries and such in it. It tasted like a Special K cereal bar, which is what I just ate that jogged my memory of this snack item. I cannot find any mention of it anywhere, and I'm positive it exists. I have a very vivid memory of seeing the commercial, wanting it, and then my grandmother taking me to buy it. Anyone remember these?

To the original posts ages ago concerning the fruit filled strawberry wheatie things, I found the answer...

In the 1990s, Kelloggs sold "Strawberry Mini-Wheats" which contained strawberry filling in the middle. Although discontinued, and most people colloquially refer to "Frosted Mini-Wheats Strawberry Delight" as "Strawberry Mini-Wheats" now, the new "Touch of Fruit in the Middle Mixed Berry" mini-wheats very closely resemble the original "Strawberry Mini-Wheats".

I was talking about these to someone, ran across the ancient threads, and decided to revenge my statement and provide an answer.  Sorry I was 5 years too late.... ROFL

I'm so glad that someone else remembers the Cookies n Cream Twix! I had them one summer at a day camp that my friends and I all went to when we were kids.....probably 92 or 93. After camp I used to always ask my mom if we could have one and she swore they didn't make them. We looked in the grocery stores all over. Haha, glad to know I'm not crazy!

Here are some of my other favorites (disclaimer, they might still make some of these, but I haven't seen them in ages)

*Tart -n-tinys
*Checkerboard Cheetos ( I still look for these everytime I go to the grocery store in hopes they'll bring them back)
*Smarties Pops (we used to get these at the rec center where we played softball as kids)
* Not sure of the name, but they were candy powder filled plastic fruits (also a ball field candy)
* Sprinkle Spangles
* Choco Tacos
* My sister and I loved HYpe stripe gum......especially the commercials with the zebra.

You thinking of Bubble Tape.  We always had contests of who could fit the most 'tape' in their mouths.

Someone mentioned Surge earlier, but anyone remember Kick soda drink.  It'd be similar to Vault nowadays  Also, the 3D Doritos were the bomb, absolutely amazing.


I'm pretty sure Bubble Tape is still around.  My daughter has gotten it quite a few times from the gas station.

Kick.  That was the best and the drink I miss the most.  I used to ride my bike to the store in high school (early 90s) and buy it for 39c.  Then it went to 49c, but I could still find a lot of 39c bottles if I dug.  Then it went to 79c.  Last time I had it was in 1998, a girl I dated at the time bought me a case of it.  Yes Vault is kinda similar, but it's not the same.

Vanilla Coke.  Pretty sure I bought one last month and have bought quite a few in recent years.  Actually 5 years ago I never even heard of it.

Combos, they're everywhere.  They came out with a new (at least to me) salsa flavor a few years ago.  Tastes ok if you can get past the glue smell.

I miss Pringles Butter & Herbs, but that was 80s.  What I miss from the 90s is the Pringles cans where the lid would conveniently snap onto the bottom of the can while you were eating them.  They must have changed the can to use less steel, but it bothers me because now I have to hold the cap or it gets lost.

I remember that Pringles can, but it was a useless invention to me.  Once I took the lid off, I'd buzz through the whole can.  That's why I don't buy Pringles anymore!

I never liked Combos.  Too processed.  They were always hard and crumbly and something in them made me feel ill.

I still resent Ben & Jerry's for doing away with Bovinity Divinity.  It was milk chocolate and white chocolate ice cream with milk chocolate and white chocolate cow-shaped candies.

Can't even find a good picture of the carton!  Most retired Ben & Jerry's flavors (Dastardly Mash, PBJ, Chunky Monkey, Chubby Hubby, etc.) was stoner ice cream.  Too many gimmicky mix-ins that did not compliment the ice cream.  BD was nice and smooth chocolate with just the right amount of chocolate pieces in it.

So, two of these are drinks, one's a condiment, and only one is truly a 90s thing (and not early 2000s), but...Pepsi Twist (with the lemon flavor?), Fizzies (fizzy fruit tablets that dissolved in water), and the colored ketchup that Heinz used to make?

That's Dunkaroos, and like a previous poster said, are still found at Dollar General an dperhaps some other places. I agree that I miss Doo Dads (actually it came out in the late '80s), and it seemed to get harder and harder to find in the late '90s/early '00s before finally disappearing around 2004. At least I enjoy my Chex Mix (actually the Stop & Shop store brand tastes better).

In 2006 Nabisco released an updated successor to Doo Dads called Mixers, with the ritz bitz without any topping the only difference between Mixers and Doo Dads.

Fundamiddles...these little rectangular shaped things that came in individual snack bags.  The outside was like a cross between chex cereal and a graham cracker, and the inside was filled with a hard chocolate.  Someone else mentioned these as being called Fundamentals, and I think that they were actually Fundamiddles; oh, how I wish they'd bring these back!  Why do they discontinue things that are so unanimously popular!?  :(

Oh I wonder wonder what's in a Wonder Ball... what ever happened to those?


I loved those--at first under the chocolate layer there was a toy ball with a Disney figure inside.  After a few years they got rid of the toy ball/figure and just started putting candies under the chocolate layer.  They weren't as exciting after that.

Maybe a lot of kids were accidently swallowing the ball under the chocolate layer(?)


Actually, candy with toys inside of them were banned un the U.S... I just read about it yesterday.

The War On Chocolate Eggs has been going on for a few years now:

FDA, Import Alert 34-02, Detention Without Physical Examination of Confectionery Products Containing Non-Nutritive Components

"Import Alert 34-02 was created as the Agency was made aware of a product called "Kinder Surprise Eggs", and similar articles containing imbedded, non-nutritive objects, being offered for sale in the United States. The imbedded non-nutritive objects in these confectionary products may pose a public health risk as the consumer may unknowingly choke on the object."

Pursuand to this, CBP has been proudly trumpeting their success: Don't Be "Surprised" by Kinder Eggs: Seizures Double.  From around 30,000 eggs to over 60,000 eggs last year!  Rejoice, citizen, your government's productivity has been doubled!

And lest you think they're going after big-time smugglers and importers, no, they're going after vacationers who have the temerity to bring back adulterated products.  Seven-page letters requesting permission to "formally authorize the destruction" of the Kinder Egg, or a $250 storage fee to contest the charge, and threats of $300 penalties if you're ever caught with one behind the star-spangled curtain. 

So here's to the FDA, CPB, CSPA, and everyone else working together to bring choc and awe to whose who'd dare threaten their children by bringing home a Kinder egg.  I feel much safer now.  Don't you?

O say does that star-spang'd banhammer yet waive,
O'er the land of the fee,
And the home of the safe!
