About This Quiz

Do you ever check out one of those lists online that brings up stuff from your childhood and run across a snack you haven't had in years and think "oh man, I used to love those?" Then you wonder what the heck happened to your favorite snack from when you were 12 that you haven't seen in years.  

Snack food doesn't always have the longest life, sadly. Some snacks only last a couple of years and then it's gone and forgotten until one day you come across a quiz like that that brings it up again. Snack nostalgia is great!

Thanks to the half-life of your average snack, we've developed a pretty solid method for guessing a person's age based entirely on their snack food history. From Fruit-by-the-Foot to Fiddle Faddle to Funyuns and a whole bunch of others that don't even start with the letter "F," we can put together a pretty accurate profile of who you are and where you've been in life. Or at least when and where you stopped to munch on something.  

So let us know which of these delectable snacks of yesteryear, or maybe even just yesterday, you've tried and we'll tell you exactly how old you are. Take the quiz and see!
