Oh, shark bites!  I miss those.   Although the great white shark bite was nasty.

That was the best gum for the 32 seconds the flavor lasted.

Gatorade gum was so satisfying. I miss that.

That stuff was pretty good, right up until it lost structural integrity.

P.B. Crisps.  God Damn it, bring back my P.B. Crisps.

Until that glorious day...

Crisps Shells
Preheat oven to 375
2T Unsalted Butter
1/4 C Powdered Sugar
1 Egg white
1t Vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
2 graham cracker sheets finely crushed
1T Flour

Melt the butter, whisk in the sugar.  Add egg, vanilla, and salt.  Stir in graham cracker, then flour.  Spread onto greased cookie sheet in approximately 2x3-4" rectangles.  Bake for 5 minutes, remove from oven, roll rectangles into tubes, return to oven and bake for an additional 6-8 minutes.  Remove from oven and place on cooling rack.

Filling (to taste)
3/4 cup Creamy peanut butter
Powdered Sugar
Coconut oil
Honey

Vanilla Extract
Pinch of salt

The filling should be MOSTLY peanut butter.  Add the first four ingredient until the correct consistency is achieved.  It should be easy enough to squeeze through a piping bag but still hold shape well.  Adjust the sweetness carefully, there's no going back.  The powdered sugar and honey are what will make the P.B. taste like the OG crisp filling, so do them first, then adjust the consistency with the coconut oil.  Pipe this into the cookie shells.

Eat SOON.  These bad boys WILL take up any ambient humidity within a few hours and the cookies loose their crisp.  If anyone has a solution to this, I am all ears.

Purplesaurus rex was amazing. I still occasionally mix up a grape lemonade. Then pour one out for my homies.

College students have no memories of the 90s with many not even born in the 90s.

I'm assuming yours are better than the retail kind, I remember the outside of those being the texture and flavor of a communion wafer.

As has already been said, not all of those are from the 90's. As a C-store owner back in the 90's, I remember some of those being pretty hot sellers. Surge never sold well for me. It may have been due to my location, a couple blocks of the beach, but the 90's were all about the Snapple label (Ice tea, soda, and fruit juices and drinks), and other tea brands trying to get in on the market, like Nestea.
Bottled water was just starting to take off, jeez, if I had a dollar now for every case of evian I sold, I'd own a castle in scotland, lol. I remember Crystal Pepsi. It was weird. Jolt was a big seller, as were New York Seltzer brand soda and Clearly Canadian. Happy you can get those again, even at their salty markup

Purplesaurus Rex got re-released a couple of years ago.

I missed Sharkleberry Fin the first time around, so I was chuffed to finally get to try it.

Jolt gum, also.  When the flavor wore off, a somewhat cocaine-ish medicine-y flavor remained, not unlike... well you get the idea.

1990 is as retro today as 1960 was in 1990.

I still miss Butterfinger Milk and Ben & Jerry's Wavy Gravy.

They were even occasionally combined in a blender.

Likely with the addition of crunchberries.


Why yes, I do have a sweet tooth.

Talking to my cousin who's a couple years older than me, we both started playing guitar in 92.  by 95, we were getting into led zeppelin.  a couple weeks ago I remarked that nirvana is as old as led zeppelin was when we started playing and we just went... damn.

I loved those things.  IIRC they weren't in the market all that long.

Ye olde Burple.  Didn't care about how good they were, there were toys with knock-off Kool-Aid powder in them.

Same. How the hell did my parents ever let that fly?

Oh, right, my dad still thinks scones count as a serving of fruit because of the cranberries.

qorkfiend: Surge was farking awesome


I worked at a restaurant in high school (in the 90s) and we had surge on fountain. The cockroaches farking loved that stuff.

Gross but true story.

Also, Orbitz is owned by the same company that now owns Clearly Canadian. When asked if they would be rereleasing Orbitz, they said something to the effect of "we have original bottles and those blobs haven't broke down. We can't sell that in good conscience".
 
2020-05-11 10:16:28 AM  
Of that list I've had Cherry coke, capri sun and Orbitz. The coke was fine the Capri Sun was very very sugary and Orbitz was an abomination.
