    [size=140]80s Foods, Snacks and Candies[/size]

    We're about to get our grub on here, and I'm wondering what you all think are some quintessential 80s foods? If you were throwing an 80s themed party, what would you serve? Booze and drinks count too.  -image-



    Cool Ranch Doritos

    Everyone is reminding me of some awesome products. Do they still make those pudding pops?! Good old wine coolers were a staple item in college. Ate fruit rolls daily as a kid. I remember when they came out with ones that had cut outs in the roll ups.

    The makers of Jolt should receive royalty checks from every dentist in America. Used to guzzle that stuff at sleepovers and play video games all night long.

  10. I wasn't that into the cheese, but had fun as a kid spreading it on the cracker with the plastic stick, easily entertained.

    Sorry Tangie, almost salted your game, hope you enjoyed it on your crackers. I don't think I really ate them in school-- I thought the cheese was weird.

    Here's a very thorough 5min+ review of the product:

  15. ya, i can't find any info on the pb handi snaxks either...i definitely ate them on several occasions. limited edition orange crackers!
    only thing was this blurb on wiki:

    Handi-Snacks were released by Nabisco in the mid 1980s and started with a cheese and cracker combination. These products were intended for consumption by grade-school students with their lunches. Nabisco tried peanut butter Handi-Snacks with crackers but later discontinued that product. With the acquisition of Nabisco by Philip Morris (now Altria Group), the products are now sold under the Kraft brand.

    Definitely used to eat the PB with the bright orange crackers to spread it on. Odd that it's hard to find evidence it ever existed, that can't bode well. Fashionable and sugary: 

    Eat your jewelry with a candy necklace:
    Or wear a tasty ring:
