There are a some ~choice~ food dishes that grace the dining table during the holidays. Some of these items are timeless additions to party spreads while others are, well, frozen in time. Like a Swedish fish in a bowl of jello. Needless to say, there were some bizarre foods that we ate at '90s holiday parties. If you're ready to go back in time, hop on this magic school bus of nostalgia with me to revisit the gone but not forgotten foods of classic '90s holiday parties.
Every decade has food trend obsessions. I mean, will we one day find smashed avocado smeared on toast an odd pairing? To be fair, I can't wrap my head around the retro jello salads of the '60s so it wouldn't be shocking if the next generation refuses a bite of something we currently cherish on menus and in the kitchen. Perhaps you look back at the food of 90s holiday parties and shudder. Or, on the contrary, you wonder why such plates went out of style or were ever discontinued from production. Like Oreo O's cereal. I'm all for bringing morning bowls of that dessert for breakfast back! Either way, there are certain foods that you could always count on being served at parties in the 90s — whether we loved to eat them or not.
