90s LUNCH SNACKS, RANKED

Including only snacks in my lunchbox packed by my father or traded in my elementary school lunchroom that I remember eating.
  1. 8.
    Pretzels
    Meh. I need a sugary pick me up at the end of my lunch. Pretzels didn't cut it.
  2. 7.
    Fruit roll ups
    In the winter, they froze. In the summer, they got super sticky and wouldn't unravel. Not an ideal snack, but still better than real fruit* *still don't believe it contained any real fruit
  3. 6.
    Ritz bits peanut butter
    Not a fan. Sometimes my mom would buy these by mistake (I liked the cheese ones). These were usually traded away for something better.
  4. 5.
    Oreos/chips ahoy/nutter butters
    They came in a pack so they're grouped together. Oreos were probably the best of the bunch, but overall cookies were pretty standard so they don't get as high a ranking
  5. 4.
    Smart food popcorn
    For some reason my Mom never bought these for me, so any time I could trade for them was a special day
  6. 3.
    Fruit by the foot
    Very ideal snack because you could rip off a piece to trade and still have some left for yourself.
  7. 2.
    Dunkaroos
    Did you ration out your frosting or eat it all at once? All consumption techniques were acceptable. Cookie and frosting (funfetti all the way!) combo makes it hard to beat, but...
  8. 1.
    Gushers
    Hands down, most traded for snack/snack in highest demand. They came in all kinds of flavors and were the most fun to squeeze and watch the juice ooze out or explode. Several fighting matches were started over gusher trades during lunch.
