10 Childhood Snacks That Need to Be Brought Back During Quarantine

Staying at home sure makes me hungry… and nostalgic. Thanks to Dunkaroos for coming back in full force when we truly needed them. But what about those other childhood treats. Here are the top nostalgic snacks that need to make comeback.

1. Planters Cheez Balls

Last year they came back for a limited time, and now more then ever I’m craving that neon treat. Sure you can get the generic giant tub of cheese balls from Target, but nothing beats that cute little can and with flavors like White Cheddar and Nacho Cheese, you can even pretend you snack like an adult.

2. Squeeze-its

Don’t lie. You know you want to add vodka to them.

3. Doritos 3D

Isn’t food already 3D? Yes. But nobody asked you Patrice! Weird shape chips… I’m in.

4. Sour Gushers

I heard a legend that say these still exist. But I don’t believe such tales… oh wait. Just found them on Amazon.

5. Mickey’s Parade Pops

Let’s face it. You aren’t going to Disneyland anytime soon. So why not suck on your favorite character? This just in… you can’t. They were discontinued. Like my hopes and dreams of day drinking at California Adventure. 

6. Crystal Pepsi

Literally the only time I ever got excited about Pepsi. 

7. Life Savers Holes

Remember the good old days when we used every part of the Life Saver and never let even the holes go to waste. Not like these wasteful days we are currently in where everyday millions of Life Saver holes go to waste. Oh… They just make them in the shape and there’s no waste. Whoops.

8. Push Pops

It’s summer. It’s hot. I want to add them to fruit punch and die in a sugary coma.

9. Vienetta

Do you like lasagna? Do you like ice cream? Then why not combine them with this discontinued fave. What’s for dinner? Oh I’m just having a slice of Vienetta Lasagna.

10. Mother’s Cookie Parade

A parade of cookies in my mouth. Yes please! While Mother’s cookies are still available, they never brought back the variety pack which was a Cookie Parade of joy. All your favorite cookies in one bag. Bring it back, bring it back don’t take it away from me.

I say bring it all back. Bring back the joy. Bring back the fun food. We need it right now. I want to chill in my backyard with a Squeeze-it spiked with Zuma and a bag of Cookie Parade listening to NKOTB. Heaven.
