Snacks were a big deal growing up; as a kid you probably snacked often. But chances are, now that you’re older, you probably haven’t munched on the sugary treats from your childhood in quite a while.

We’ve rounded up 15 of your favourite childhood snacks that you may have forgotten about that you can still buy today. Grab a pen, you may want to add some of these to your grocery list.


Rebecca Harrington/Tech InsiderKids today can still get yogurt on the go.

These were perfect on the go; I recall many times eating this en route to school, or on the way to a sports practice. Go-Gurt still comes in the convenient, easy open tubes, and I imagine it’s still a popular favourite amongst school-aged children.


Flickr/theimpulsivebuyNow they even come in sour.

The oh-so memorable commercials of people eating Gushers and then turning into fruits may not still be around, but this snack still is. Now in super sour and single, specific fruit flavours, you can still grab a box of this childhood favourite snack at your local grocery store.

Cheese balls

Rite AidYou can still eat these by the handful.

Utz Baked Cheddar Cheese Balls were a savoury and vibrant treat of our youth.. Whether you had them for an in-class holiday party in elementary school, or by the pool as a snack in the summer, this favourite childhood snack still comes in the same big tub, and still is a hit with most.


Coca ColaFeel free to pack a juice box in your office lunch.

While McDonald’s may have gotten rid of Hi-C, Walmart and most other grocery stores have not. Hi-C juice boxes were a childhood favourite of many, and those little juice boxes pack a taste that just can’t be matched.

Fruit Roll-Ups

AmazonYou can still unroll these.

These were basically in everyone’s lunch box on the daily, and lucky for us, this snack can still be bought today, which allows our taste buds the opportunity for a trip down memory lane. And now, strawberry (the original flavour) isn’t the only option.

Fun Pops Fruit Flavored Freeze Pops

Wal MartTastes like summer.

These were the number one pool party snack back in the day. Freeze Pops come in so many different flavours, ensuring there’s something to satisfy everyone. And let’s be honest, you can never have just one.


HeinzThere are tons of varities.

For less than $US2, you can still buy one your childhood favourite snacks – Lunchables. From mini pizzas to turkey, cheese, and cracker sandwiches, Lunchables still exist and even in more options than before.

Trix Yogurt

Sure, Trix may be for kids, but those of us who enjoyed Yoplait Trix Yogurt can still indulge in this treat today. It’s not particularly easy to find, but some grocery stores do still sell these swirly, flavorful snacks.

Bagel Bites

HeinzThey come in bigger options than ever before now.

This after school and sleepover must-have snack can still be bought today – now in bulk, 24 and 48-packs, which wasn’t an option decades ago.

Kid Cuisine

WalmartYou can still pop a few of these in the freezer.

Kid Cuisines are basically the “Happy Meals” of the freezer section. These were a fan favourite because they always had a dessert or something sweet included, too.

Dino nuggets

TysonWhy eat normal-shaped nuggets?

The actual brand I personally grew up on were the “Tyson Breaded Shaped Chicken Patties Fun Nuggets,” but I’ve always referred to them as dino nuggets. Chicken nuggets always have been, and likely always will be a preferred snack for children (and grown-up kids at heart like myself too). You can now get dinosaur-shaped nuggets in about five different brands.

Pirates Booty

Who doesn’t love popcorn? Especially when it’s salty and cheesy. The parents who brought Pirate’s Booty as the after-game snack were always a hit.


HazelthePikachu/ FlickrWarheads make you pucker up.

Warheads were a childhood snack for some, and torture for others. Warheads gave you playground credibility; the more you could eat at once, or the number of Warheads you could eat in a certain span of time gave you cool points. This pucker-inducing, sour candy was a childhood hit.

Teddy Grahams

Flickr/theimpulsivebuyThere are tons of new flavours to try.

These teddy bear shaped cracker cookies still come in a slew of sweet flavours, some old and some new. They didn’t disappoint twenty years ago, and they don’t disappoint today.

Handi-Snacks Sticks and Dips

WalmartSome come sweet, others savoury.

Whether you’re craving a salty snack or a sweet snack, Handi-Snacks have you covered. From crackers and cheese, to oreo sticks and frosting, Handi-Snacks always hit the spot. This childhood favourite can be found in most retailers and grocery stores today.
