15 Candies From the 90s That Need to Come Back

1. Life Savers Holes
Life Savers, as we all know, are manufactured by creating solid disc-shaped candies, and then cutting out the center holes. It's a very expensive process, but if you can think of a better way to make ring shapes, we'd like to hear it.

2. Shark Bites
Sharing your Shark Bites during lunch was always tricky. I don't mind if you take a yellow or green shark, but if you even so much as touch the great white, we're no longer friends.

3. Bubble Beeper
Many doctors in the 90's chose to carry Bubble Beepers instead of regular beepers. Those MDs have since lost their licenses.

4. Butterfinger BBs
We're very sorry to report that somebody did lay a finger on your Butterfinger BB's. Their name was Nestle, and they discontinued these bad boys in 2006. Sure, they later introduced Butterfinger Bites, but those are shaped like cubes, not spheres. What is this, prison?!

5. String Thing
The 1990's were a golden age for gummy candy innovation. And String Thing was at the forefront of that movement, pioneering the revolution of making the candy look... kinda squiggly.

6. Melody Pops
Melody Pops boasted that you could "play real music." That was a bit misleading, but the phrase "play only one high-pitched tone that will drive your parents crazy" was too long to fit on the box.

7. Tongue Splashers Bubble Gum
Tongue Splashers gum came packaged in full-sized paint cans.  You know what else comes packaged in those? Paint. Don't mix up the two.

8. Twix Cookies-n-Creme
The cookies-n-creme flavored Twix, much like its chocolate fudge brother, was only around from 1990-1991. I managed to save a few bars, but for some reason 28-year-old chocolate doesn't appreciate in value like I had hoped.

9. Garbage Can-dy
These candies taught us what raccoons have known for years: garbage cans are a great place to find delicious treats.

10. Nestle Quik Candy Bar
Unfortunately, the way this chocolate bar most lived up to the name "Quik" was in regard to the amount of time it spent on shelves before being discontinued.

11. Jumbo Nerds
These have been out of stores for decades. Nowadays, the only Jumbo Nerd you'll find anywhere is named Harry Knowles.

12. Bar None Candy Bar
When Hershey's decided to split this candy bar into two fingers and add caramel, it was one of the biggest mistakes in confectionery history, bar none.

13. Nestle Magic
Inside each ball of Nestle Magic chocolate was a fun toy. Consumer groups freaked out about this, claiming the toy posed a choking hazard. By that logic, you know what else is a choking hazard? Everything at Toys-R-Us.

14. Dina-Sour Eggs
While the packaging made these candies appear hollow, they were actually egg-shaped jawbreakers. So, when your parents told you that candy would damage your teeth, they were talking about these guys. Ouch.

15. Nestle Alpine White
The problem with advertising that a new candy bar is made with "superior quality" is that, after it's gone, we can never go back to normal chocolate again without feeling cheated.
