I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who misses the pop flavored gummies known as Soda Licious. These 90s Betty Crocker fruit snacks have been discontinued for a while now which makes it hard to find much information on them but here’s what I know… 1. They were awesome. 2.

Butterfinger BB’s Butterfinger was one of my favorite candy bars, even though it would aggressively stick to my teeth and the tops of my gums. It seemed like it had much more complex flavors compared to most chocolate bars. So naturally I was excited when the B&B’s were announced. They would be like Maltesers only 10x better. Unfortunately Bart Simpson sold …
. I was inventorying a Dollarama earlier today as part of my horrendous job, and I came across boxes of Wagon Wheels. I thought to myself as I aimlessly counted the quantity: “These things ruled.” That’s it.
I loved pizza flavoured cheese strings. Who wouldn’t? Cheese and pizza. Pizza and cheese. Gotta be a moronic idiot not to like that. Oh, and there’s currently a Facebook petition to bring them back: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Petition-to-bring-back-pizza-flavoured-Cheesestrings/98201148130
If you did not love Teddy Grahams when you were younger, then I’m unsure what exact ailment you had. These things were boss. I actually got mad when I opened up my lunch and Teddy Grahams were not there. Were there any snacks you just had to have in your lunches? Any foods that made you angry when they were missing?
