    We all have one, green Hostess Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pies with yellow Vanilla Puddin' Power, Barnum's Circus Animal Crackers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cereal, Shark Bite Fruit Snacks, Ice Cream character heads with Gumball eyes, WWF Superstars of Wrestling Ice Cream bars with 4 ounces of Vanilla Ice Cream, a rich Chocolate coated backside, and a giant Cookie imprinted with one of six beloved Wrestling Legends...mmmh.:p 

    A food lost to the ages. One that brings back the memories of a much simpler, much younger time. Memories so vivid, we can almost taste the forgotten treats still on our buds. Hostess Treats, Fruit Snacks, Cereals, Ice Cream, Candy, Bubble Gum, Jello, Cookies, Crackers, Chips, Pizza, Pastas, Drinks, Sandwiches, Fast Food...the list goes on. But alas, all good things must come to an end...

    What are YOUR favorite Childhood Foods of all time? From ones that no longer exist, to ones that still grace the market shelves today!

    DISCUSS.

    The break cake cupcakes. They had a referee on the box but I think they are out of business.

    I usually didn't like fruit candy gummy snacks...but I did like those Shark ones. I always saved the greatwhites for last!

    Hershey chocolate bars. Remember when they wrapped them in foil and paper?

    Ring pops. I know they still exist, but my fingers are too big now :( . Plus if I had a green one, when I was done with the sucker part, I became Green Lantern.

    Remember those Teddy Graham sandwich cookies from years back? I loved those. E.L.Fudge. I could eat an entire bag of those things. And they're even better now that I'm a coffee drinker. Ridiculously awesome dipped in coffee.

    Ohana beverages and Count Chocula cereal I can remember having at some point as a kid. Other than that, I can't remember any foods or drinks that I had while growing up that I no longer see in grocery stores.
