You Can Feel Like a Kid Again With This '90s Candy From Amazon Prime
As everyone around me gears up to head back to school for the year, I'm reminded of the days — in the '90s — when I was also headed back to school, with my lunch all packed and hopefully a sweet treat inside my lunch box. You see, I'm an '80s baby, so candy in the 1990s was my everything.
I loved Laffy Taffy and Bubble Tape, and it comes as absolutely no surprise to me that I can still find all those '90s gems online today. Thank heaven for Amazon Prime making life a little easier. Amazon stocks all of my favorites that can be delivered to my doorstep in a mere day or two, and I highly recommend all my fellow '80s children start shopping for their favorites right now as well. Even though we're officially adults now, we can still feel like kids at heart with some Warheads and Nerds, right?
Crispy M&M's debuted in the '90s before disappearing and making a triumphant return. These chocolate-coated crisps are the perfect little bit of crunch and are impossible to stay away from.

I remember numerous times where I'd shove inch after inch of this supersoft gum into my face just to keep the sweet flavor going. Thankfully, the bubblegum tape had plenty inside each package.

Baby Bottle Pops
These baby bottle suckers may have been a bit weird — because what adolescent wants to have a bottle? — but it didn't stop me. They were also fun and interactive since you had to lick the pop, dip it, and shake it to get the fruit-flavored candy powder.

Boston Baked Beans
The Summer we were building our family pool, I spent nearly every day at the city pool instead, and Boston Baked Beans were my go-to treat. Though these candies have been around for decades, they were really popular with my friend group, because they were candy-coated peanuts, which made us feel like we were eating something a little more substantial than just candy. And they were delicious.

I was obsessed with the supersour flavors Warheads came in and was always determined to hold them in my mouth for as long as possible without wimping out, thus resulting in a very high tolerance for sour candies.

Super Ropes are like licorice that never ends. Who wouldn't want a three-foot-long licorice rope to tote around all day? I did it often. The Red Vine treat tasted just like a fruity Red Vine, but it just kept going and going and going.
