We all have a favorite food from our childhood that just isn’t around anymore. Sometimes it’s for the best–that cereal or instant mac and cheese just may not taste good to our palates anymore, and we should remember it fondly through the eyes of nostalgia. But every once in a while, you find out something you loved is still around, just hard to find.
Here are a few nostalgic items that are alive and well–they’re either sold in other countries or are just hidden in small drugstores. Lucky for us, we can get them all at Amazon.com!
I loved Alpha-Bits growing up, and was convinced they were discontinued. I’m thrilled to have found them online–I just need to find a few more friends to go in on the purchase with me, since it’s only available in packs of four boxes.
Speaking of sugary cereals available in packs of four…
Mr. Geek tracked these down as a Christmas gift for me a couple years ago, and they’re just as good (if not better) than you remember. Also available in honey graham and chocolate.
…Because who wouldn’t want weird gummy dinosaurs in their oatmeal?
Apparently Crispy M&Ms still exist in Germany. Man, those things were addictive.
I haven’t tried these before, but apparently they’re pretty nostalgic for some folks. This case comes with half peanut butter, half chocolate flavors.
Did you used to have those fundraisers in your elementary schools with the giant lollipops that came in every flavor imaginable? Here you go. You know your 10-year-old self would want you to have these. (I’ve also seen these lollipops at random seaside gift shops and drugstores.)
What food do you miss from your childhood?
