Back in the days when people still watched TV on the TV, there was actual joy in catching certain commercials between reruns of Rugrats. Svengali-ed by these ads, you'd wrap up Saturdays by pushing all sorts of amazing '90s junk foods to your mother, certain that adding this to lunchtime would change your young life forever. This wasn't actually the case, but there's no question that there were plenty of primo '90s snacks that left a lasting impression... despite them being debatably gross as hell and/or extremely unhealthy.
That's right, rip off your rose-tinted nostalgia goggles and you'll realize real quick that a lot of our favorite snacks from the '90s were exercises in chemical-ridden trash that relied solely on novelty and novelty alone. It was primetime for junk food, just a bit before parents became aware that hey, maybe we shouldn't be feeding our kids Juicy Pizza Blasters just because a cartoon raccoon thinks they're radical. You know, that whole thing.
