Grab your favorite breakfast foods from the '80s, and get ready to celebrate. It's been 30 years since The Breakfast Club first premiered in 1985, but it remains one of the most iconic films of all time. On Saturday, March 24, 1984, five students reported for detention. But even after 97 minutes of sheer film genius, we never really found out what the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess, and the criminal actually ate for breakfast.
But at least we can take some guesses. To celebrate the iconic film in the best way possible (with food), we've put together a list of 11 breakfast foods that would right fit in during the 1980s — and are just as tasty today.
