About This Quiz

Whether it's vegging out in front of cartoons with a strawberry Danimals yogurt, or chewing yards of Bubble Tape after school, the treats that defined our childhoods still have a warm and fuzzy place in just about everyone's heart. The 1980s and 1990s were classic times for comfort food. There are dozens of discontinued favorites that we would give our right eye to have put back up on the shelves.

From Little Debbie Snack Cakes to fizzy Clearly Canadian sodas, our childhoods were fed with some of the most creative foods in the world. During these decades, cereals went from ordinary and boring to extraordinary. Plenty of them featured miniature versions of our favorite cookies, and they were all studded with marshmallows and injected with enough sugar to keep us going through recess. 

The freezer was a treasure trove stocked full of goodies. Kid Cuisines and Toaster Strudels sat side by side, just waiting to be popped in the microwave and enjoyed while watching "The Goonies" for the 20th time. Our summers were flavored with icy pops and pastel sherbets, as well as Viennetta, the fanciest ice cream on the planet.

Step back in time to the golden years of your childhood, and let us guess your actual age with this delicious quiz that is sure to get your stomach rumbling.
