Go-Gurt was a beloved 1990s and 2000s lunch-box staple (especially if your mom froze them so they’d be perfectly chilled come lunchtime).

Go-Gurt still comes in the convenient, easy-open tubes for on-the-go snacking, and there are even more flavors to choose from today, like Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme.


Gushers are still a lunch box go-to.

Warheads were a treat for some, and torture for others.

The sour candy was invented in Taiwan in the 1970s, but it didn’t gain widespread popularity in the US until the 1990s. And luckily, the pucker-inducing treat is still widely available across the US.
