Here are some foods that I think came out in 1988. Or I want to say they did?

Croonchy Stars

I don’t remember eating these. I remember the commercials more. There were at least 2 versions of the commercial. One where he got hit in the head by some dough and one where he inflated a star made of dough. Note the conspicuous CGI cereal box.

These were so good. They still are good, but I miss that simplistic old style packaging.

Hi-C Hula Punch

Hi-C’s take on Hawaiian Punch. Note the similar font.

Berry Bears and Shark Bites

These came out the year before I started school. I liked Berry Bears better even though they tasted exactly the same as Shark Bites. PS the great white and the birthday cake piece taste the same.

Squeeze-it

Face bottles (not from 1988)

Squeezit Character Bottles(1) - Copy

I liked this packaging design better than when they put the faces on the bottles. It made them harder to squeeze and drink and because of the facial features it would be harder to get the drink out of the bottle because it would get stuck in all the crevices of the face. They were so hard to open too. I used to open them with my teeth.

Berry Blue Kool-Aid

One of my favorite flavors of Kool-Aid ever! My mom is also a fan of this flavor.

Striped Chips Ahoy!

These were ok. I didn’t like chocolate covered cookies as a kid because they were too messy and melty.

Candilicious

Another product I remember for the commercial than the product. They were short lived so I never got the chance to try some. This is not the first time I wrote about it in this blog.

Vitamin C Drops

These are still around in one form or another.

I’m pretty sure I’ve never eaten one of these, but I wouldn’t mind trying one.
