The 90’s were fun. We had boy bands without irony, Lisa Frank, and the best freaking snacks. However, all good things must come to an end. With America’s latest bid to get healthy and the general decline of snack culture (that’s something we just made up), some of our favorite treats have become a thing of the past. However, some of our favorite lunchtime vices are still available in grocery stores. Plus, if you get creative and scour Amazon, you should be able to find the rest (we’re looking at you, Dunkaroos).
