90's Nostalgia

Sunday, November 06, 2016
Today's post is a little different because it's all about 90s nostalgia and that's one of my favourite things to read about because…all the feels!  90s food was quite, unusual, especially school dinners, turkey twizlers and of course sweets/candy.  I had to have four temporary fillings as a child so obviously I loved sweets! Here are some of my favourites:

Rainbow Drops/Rainbow Dust
Rainbow drops were a relatively constant item in my school lunch box, they not only look cute but they were sweet and moreish. I don't actually know what they are made from (oops!) but they were so good. Also rainbow dust in the small tubes were a school disco stable, along with candy watches and necklaces!

Sadly as I'm a vegetarian I cannot now eat Haribo because they contain gelatine but during primary school and high school I loved them! I always had a mini pack of Haribo in my bag and my favourites were definitely the sour cherries.  The equivalent that I have as a treat now are the Marks & Spencer veggie sweets, particularly the Colin the caterpillar sour sweets.

Again another sweet that I can't eat now because I'm vegetarian, why do so many sweets I love have to contain animal gelatine? I used to love the twisted pastel rainbow flump marshmallow -  who didn't! I want one now!

Bubble Gum
Hubba Bubba chewing gum/bubblegum was one of my favourites at school because of the sweet, liquid centre and the sugary berry flavours as well as the chewing gum in a roll, I can't remember what it was called now but it was a rare treat after school.

There are so many sweets from the 90's and 00's that I could mention but I thought I should limit it to only four otherwise we would be here all day! However I did love skittles, sour sweets of any kind, Parma Violets, Drumstick lollies, Wonka chocolate and so many more! This is a sponsored post.

Did you eat any of these as a child? What nostalgic food/sweets did you loved?
