The taste of nostalgia

From fruit snacks to Goldfish, WSS staffers have got all the snacks you crave from elementary school. Watch as WSS staffers try snacks from their childhood.

When we were kids, the food scene was all about the snacks, and there were plenty to choose from. We had fruit snacks, cheese with crackers, Goldfish, Lunchables and the list goes on. It seems that as we’ve grown up, these snacks have gotten lost in the fold. We’ve all tried so many more foods since elementary school, so our tastes are bound to have changed. Now, as teens, do these snacks live up to the hype that had placed them onto metaphorical pedestals as children?

Graduating high school brings back a lot of old memories, and one of the things we’ll never forget about elementary school was the food, whether it was school lunches, homemade lunches or maybe — the snacks. For the choice of our snacks, we brainstormed the snacks that we thought described school lunches, snacks at home or perhaps food you would bring on car trips.

As our snack selections, we chose Goldfish Colors (evidently they were never called “Rainbow Goldfish”), Fruit by the Foot, Gogurt, Ritz crackers with cheese dip, Scooby-Doo fruit snacks and Pizza Lunchables. For our drinks, Danimals yogurt, Pacific Cooler Capri-Sun, Juice Barrels and Sunny-D were selected. With much to taste and many opinions to be voiced, let’s see if they met all of our expectations.
