10 Disgusting “Foods” You Loved As A Kid

All y’all who grew up in the 70s and 80s: Remember all that crap you ate as a kid? How did we escape our childhoods without going retarded?

Before I proceed, let me just say: Sorry young'ins. I didn’t eat Gogurt or whatever it was you threw up throughout the 90s. I was growed up enough to know better.

I’m not talking candy or soda or frozen dinners -- which were the bomb, and which make me wonder how I ingested that stuff without losing a stomach, considering how much of it I ate.

I’m talking about:

Fish Sticks
Probably the least offensive of these foods, fish sticks still need to be called out because they’re called “fish sticks.” Say it out loud:



I think I liked to eat this stuff because, for being fish, they didn’t have much fishy flavor -- indeed, they didn’t have any flavor beyond whatever white sauce my mom would serve out of a jar with them. But they were never my favorite! Not like...

Oscar Mayer Cheesedogs
Hotdogs are amazing, when they’re proper hotdogs.

Oscar Mayer hotdogs are tragic meat tubes constructed from demon seed and hate glue.

But even the manufacturers of these industrial sodium bombs must have shaken their heads at the prospect of serving up hotdogs filled with a yellow, salty paste which they hesitantly labeled “cheese.” Imagine their surprise and wonder when the numbers showed that children across the nation adored these travesties that mock the Natural Order.


McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets
You might not remember this, but before McDonald’s rolled out Chicken McNuggets, chicken was too hard for the tender little mouths of middle-class kids to eat.

I’ll always remember the glorious day when I first sunk my teeth through a chunk of gray and spongy McProtein Mass -- and I'll always remember my pride in being American, citizen of a country in which I possessed the freedom to choose dipping my jellified glob of chicken into honey mustard, barbeque or sweet-and-sour sauce.

Later, I threw up.

Writing the name of That Thing Which Is The Epitome Of All That Is Wrong With Canned Prepared Meals just made me vomit in my mouth a little.

The brain-like texture of the Os.

The sugary “tomato” sauce.

The tiny, tasteless sausage buttons swimming in said sauce.

What the hell was Chef Boyardee thinking? More importantly, how did I ever eat 10 cans of this stuff a week from ages 3 through 13?Yes, I did repeat first grade -- why do you ask?

Fruit Roll Ups
The first time I ate a fruit roll up, I realized there was nothing mankind couldn’t accomplish. We’d see flying cars and cities on the Moon by the time I was a teenager.

Mom didn’t like me eating candy, which is why she fed these things to me by the hour, not understanding that corn syrup (or dried corn syrup, for that matter) and sugar ain’t exactly “100% fruit.”

Hey mom, you know what’s 100% fruit? Fruit. Not that I would have eaten it...

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese
Remember that one kid in the commercials who kept asking why Kraft didn’t name it Cheese & Macaroni?  BECAUSE THE CHEESE WAS A COLORED SALT PRODUCT.

I always knew, in the back of my mind, that something was wrong with Kraft Mac & Cheese. Perhaps it started the first time I saw it transformed from food into a congealed waxy mass after sitting in a dish on the counter for an hour.

But I ate the hell out of the stuff anyway -- this was truly my favorite dish. 

I think the experience must have destroyed something precious in my head, because the first time I actually tried real macaroni and cheese -- you know, something with actual cheese in it -- I was all, yuck, gimme my Kraft!

Capri Sun
Ah, the halcyon days of drinking watered down juice-flavored drink (made from a concentrate of juices that aren’t actually the juices advertised) from a foil bag that included its own straws.

"Made with real fruit juice!" Yeah, all 10 percent of it. Where's the "Made with real high-fructose corn syrup!" warning?

Of course, I really didn't care. It was juice in a shiny bag, after all. Never mind that it didn't taste any good -- I was looking good in the lunch hall. 

Cheese 'n Crackers
There’s nothing more American than topping soda crackers with a chunk of cheese.

But when that cheese is actually a bastard concoction of oil, acids and several different ways of saying "salt" smeared across a dry, tasteless cracker by way of a red plastic rectangle stored in the same package as the snack, well... you can see why people who liked these things loved Chicken McNuggets.

Like me.

Cap’n Crunch
The fact that I ate this stuff makes me so sad now.

Never mind the instant sogginess of the cereal, and the resulting (and revolting) candified syrup that was created from what once was milk...

...what I can’t wrap my head around is why I continued to eat this “food” that continually ripped up my gums and inside cheeks, resulting in gobs and gobs of mouth beef hanging from the roof of my mouth. And then ask for more.

WTF was I thinking?

School Supplies
White paper. Brown paper. Cardboard paper. Elmer’s Glue. Eraser tips. Probably fruit-scented markers.

Somehow, all these things ended up in my mouth. I didn't exactly "love" eating them... but apparently I liked these items enough to pop them in my mouth throughout elementary.

And sure, I never intended to eat them... but yeah, probably 50 percent of the time, they went down my gullet and into my digestive tract. I wonder how many pounds of yellow paint from my chewed-up No. 2 lead pencils ended up on the walls of my tummy?

Man, I was a screwed-up kid...

What gross "food" did you love as a kid that makes you go “Hmmm...” nowadays?

Your Response


News flash but kids that grew up in the mid to late 90's even early to mid 200's kids know all about these foods and grew up on them... not just "you 70's and 80's kids. I am fully aware of all these foods and grew up on all of them and I was born in 96. My baby brother and sister did too and they were born in 1999

My god, that was hilarious! Thank for sharing, indeed.

Guess what? I'm a nineties kid, proudly manufactured in 1994, and these are the same things a typical, red-blooded seventeen-year-old girl will eat daily.

Does anyone else remember candy cigarettes? Man, I thought those were great! Now it's just like eating chalk-it even looks like chalk.

Holy Hell haha, 8 of those things i still eat and devoured in rightous amounts as a kid. I'm 18 so i grew up in the 90s scrafing that stuff down. It kinda makes me scared. This article was amazing ever considered writing parody articles like what The Onion does?

Freckin hulliarious! :) <br />
<br />
You made my morning with the mouth beef comment.

I'd add Ready Brek to that. A sort of sludgy, porridge substitute. I can still remember both the taste and the smell, and there seems to be a paradox there, somewhere. Because although it's the exact same taste and smell as it had when I was nine, my emotional response is incredibly different. What I loved back then, I loathe now. I haven't tasted or smelled it even once in the last decade, so my memory hasn't been updated or compromised by being exposed to the reality - so how is it possible that I've somehow decided that this food is an abomination?<br />
<br />
By the way, I share your opinion on the fourth option - although we called them spaghetti hoops in the UK. And they got a strange sort of retro coolness, when Gene Hunt made a reference to them in the first episode of the UK version of Life on Mars. "I'm 'avin' 'oops."

I would still eat Captain Crunch cereal

Not being American, I don't know all of them in the first place. Also, I was one of those gross kids that actually liked vegetables. LIKED. VEGETABLES. It's not surprising I was an outcast before I knew how to spell the word! :D

With the exception of Cap'n Crunch (yuck), I still eat those foods to this day! I especially love the Cheese Dogs, which my 3-year-old son is now hooked on. Let's hear it for another generation of these foods!

I ate so many Mall-wart corndogs my sweat smelled like the corndogs!<br />
Uck!<br />
Maybe that's why I went make up for all the crap I ate in my teens!

... I still eat captain crunch o-o

Those microwaveable burritos. Loved them as a kid, can't stand them now. I wonder how I ever liked that crap.

i remember "velvita" probably the most sickening so called food around. I ended up weighing 230 lbs and got good and sick. Took 2 years to get the weight off. Never ever againe. Were poisioning ourselves slowly with this crap and sociopathic corporarions are all to happy to help.

Humm the only ones I really recognize from the list above are fish fingers [great when u have have a hangover with tomato sauce in a sandwich-but the ones made from fillet fish not crap] and spaghetti hoops. The only thing I can think back to being totally disgusting was codliver oil and malt, it was like a honey in consistency my mum used to give me on the way out the door going to school- used to burp fish all morning-yuk!

Dont forget peanut butter, honey, and banana sandwiches.

Hilarious! I too have eaten almost everything on your list. I have never ever dipped into Elmer's glue though I do recall gnawing on those yellow pencils.

Haha - the way you wrote this cracked me up. In Australia 'fish sticks' are 'fish fingers'. And my mum used to serve them with mashed potatoes and tomato sauce. WTF. And I dont know what alot of these 'foods' (I use the term very loosely) are, but reading about those cheese hotdog things made me want to vomit for you. And roll-ups are good, but Mum wouldnt let us eat them when we were kids - in case we choked. Maybe we were a little bit too sheltered - she actually wouldn't let us take apples to school until year 7 unless they were chopped up. Again, for fear of choking. The kids with roll-ups were the envy of my primary school life. Thanks for sharing!

memoreis HAHAHAH

I was really enjoying the reminiscing on all the crappy, yet yummy food I ate as a child until I read bambi2004tsu post. A good reminder of the junk that goes into our food. I can still remember the first drive thru we ever went to. It was a Wendy's & my Mom & her friend laughed there as*es of because they thought it was so funny to talk into a box.<br />
<br />
I liked the HoHo's v.s. the Ding Dongs. <br />
Hamburger Helper - Beef Pasta flavor, still eat it.<br />
Tuna Casserole<br />
Yes, I ate SPAM too. Did your Mom ever fry up Bologna?<br />
Don't forget Jiffy Pop Popcorn<br />
Candy Cigarettes

Great list! I never cared to sample the glue, but was allowed rare tastes of the other forbidden fruits. My mother thought she was a saint for keeping "poisons" like Hamburger Helper and Kraft Macaroni and Cheese almost entirely off the menu in favor of the same three or four deathly dry and flavorless (but made from scratch and good for ya!) meat-and-potato recipes she thought she knew how to cook. My jaws used to get tired gnawing through the tough and tasteless tortures she served up. I used to fantasize about going to McDonalds or belonging to a family that sometimes had hot dogs for dinner.

Great post. With the exception of school supplies I ate everything on your list. Reese's Puffs processed lunch meat, pre-pressed burgers with or without cheese, bologna rings(pronounced Boe - Log- nah in my family), King Vitamin ( a suprising WIC approved staple),french fries from fast food places, spam, anything made by Hickory Farms, Velveta, Gogurt, Fruit by the foot, Fruity or Cocoa Pebbles, sausage any kind doesn't matter I ate them all.<br />
<br />
I fondly remember the Spaghetti O's Sandwich my mom used to make us. And I still occasionaly do make them as comfort food

Who all rembers that marshmellow stuff that came in a jar? I think it was called marshmellow fluff. God that stuff was gross but my dad put it on everything. I'm sure that if i even smelled it today, i'd throw up!!!

Haha. This was great. I'm really wouldn't be surprised if some parts of our brains cannot function properly as a result of this diet. That fruit roll up stuff, I think it's still sitting in my stomach. Like gum.

Admittedly I remember when they came out with Chicken Nuggets at McDonald's, until then I was scraping the condiments off my cheeseburger (my mom didn't special order) and covering the taste with extra ketchup. <br />
But really how about Cheese Whiz...esp the spray kind, and the nozzle would hold all that hard cheese stuff and of course we would lick that part off and eat it first...mmm

I laughed out loud reading your post! I had totally forgotten about those hot dogs. I was feeling a bit ill by the end of it, but still funny as hell.

gah so true about cap'n crunch. every time i ate it i regretted it, but my mom didn't let me eat it very often so i took every chance i got, despite the pain...

I've eaten ALL of these. I was born in 1993. I may not have had them at their worst (maybe). though I never eaten school stuff... unless you count paper. the "O's" is probably how I got so chubby. I loved them. Haven't had them since. Lack of better judgment I'd still eat the crunch.

HA! I was a 90s kid but man I love fish sticks, mac n cheese and spaghetti Os!!!<br />
<br />
My parents fed us some strange stuff as kids... beans and weenies. A can of baked beans with hot dog cut up in it. And Tomato Maccie. Elbow noodles and V8 juice with a little bit of sugar. <br />
<br />
I love that stuff. Its wonder I don't weigh 400 pounds now.. mostly because I still eat all of it!

Ca men jeans<br/><br />
Ca original men jeans<br/><br />
Cavalli men jeans<br/>

This is great! I ate all of this stuff....also, I will proudly admit that I STILL eat Kraft macaroni and cheese. I'll probably end up with cancer in a few years, but at least I'll be satisfied!

@Riversled they still have those sticks! But they don't have the red bit any more because in encourages smoking... Which is true, I used to pretend they were smokes, now im trying to give up smoking, GRRR!

With a little coupon fenegling, I mange to buy two boxes of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese for 18 cents. I'm damn proud of that.

this is hard to show my opion ,because i can give you a good place ,really ,in this world ,save money is the most important thing ,so i show you here ,just have a look

We had Sherbert dips in the UK.. basically a red liquorice straw (with a hole down the middle that soon blocked up with saliva and sherbert.) inserted like a fuse into tube of cardboard filled with sherbert (basically powdered sugar). The idea was that you could dip the liquorice in the sherbert and suck it off. The fact that it wasn't packaged to protect the liquorice stick from any kind of contact nor that the sherbert leaked out, or that the cardboard tube was poorly glued together or the chemicals and artificial colouring used on the liquorice and the sherbert had any way of putting us off. It was yummy, it was cheap and it shut us up for half an hour :)<br />
<br />
It has long been off UK shelfs, no doubt after horrifying the first "modern" food health and safety nazi. Modern kids are poorer for it :(

Yeah, Paste was good, kinda tangy and made your tongue tingle...<br />
<br />
Considering the other things on the list, it was probably the healthiest.

i still eat all of these, but the glue.... i don't find them disgusting at all... in fact... i think i may go get me a fruit roll-up right now.

Spaghetti-O's aren't made by Chef Boyardee... If you want a legitimate Chef snack to harass, I would suggest Beefaroni (with meatballs).

LOL, Im 45 and I still love everything on that list.<br />

HEY! I am definitely a 90's kid and I ate all of that. By the time Gogurt came around I was eating the real stuff. I've started craving some of that stuff again, it brings back memories.. except those cheese dogs-yuck

What about "Otter Pops" which were just dye, sugar and water in plastic tubing! I can't find them anymore, just generic "Flavor Ice", which is the same- except the "characters", my favorite was Alexander the Grape.

Funny... I still eat kraft mac n cheese... a lil trick I learned to 'cover up' the 'odd' taste was to mix it with either Welch's grape jelly.... or some ketchup...... fish sticks were always served with french fries or tater tots... and unmercifully dipped in ketchup..... as were my McNuggets..... My wife loves her SPAM... and Hormel's corned beef hash... both smell like dog food to me......... the pizza of my primary school days came in individual boxes, ( still rectangular) but we had a choice between pepperroni, plain or sausage cardboard ( pizza) sorry..... My step-kids are currently living on Ramen Noodles.....

Ooodles Of Noodles! They were 10 for a dollah back in the day. Forget fish sticks....what about Spam!

Fish sticks?

These sound rather like what we call 'fish fingers' here in the UK. I have no objecion to them, although I haven't eaten them much in adulthood. They were perfectly acceptable, especially eaten with sliced bread and peas.

Anything involving pasta which has been put in a tin is gross!! I've never had 'spaghetti-O's', I don't even know if you can or could get them here because It's never occurred to me to try. Not that I'm a gourmet, but anything involving cooking pasta and putting it in a tin can is bound to end up producing limp, flaccid, texture-less stodge. I have had this kind of thing, but not for very many years...

Important note: Spaghetti-Os are a Campbell's product, not a Chef Boyardee product.

Spaghetti-Os are not made by Chef Boyardee they are made by Franco-American.

Ok This is stupid. Um how about something besides a rant about junk food. Maybe something journalistic or scientific?<br />
<br />
And anyways Cap'n N Crunch doesn't get soggy right after you put milk in it. It's amazing. I'm offended.

Perhaps its only regional to my area, but a childhood food that my mom would serve? Scrapple with Dippy Eggs. I think about it now and groan. Scrapple is made of all the parts of the pig that don't get used in hotdogs. I'll wait while you go HUH? EWWWWW. but we all thought it was delish. And of couorse sunny side eggs (called dippy eggs cause you were supposed to dip your toast in them)<br />
<br />
Of your list, you forgot Elios Pizza. That card boad stuff they served in the school cafe and again, Mom would serve at lunch on the weekend.

Oskar Meyer I have a feeling that these probably originated in Europe. Visit Vienna, visit a wuerstelstand (sausage vendor) on the street, and one of the choices you will be offered is a 'Kaesekrainer'. This is a sausage which has cheese in it. When the sausage is heated up, as it is, the cheese melts. When you bite into it, the cheese goes<br />
<br />
***Squit!***<br />
<br />
right onto your jacket. The resulting stain will, if it's a dry-clean only jacket, take a visit to the cleaners' to remove it. <br />
<br />
Moral: Don't eat Kaesekrainer in your best jacket!

I actually still enjoy McNuggets. They taste different now then when I was a kid. I only eat them maybe once every month or 2 though. Not every weekend like when I was growing up and my family had to bribe me with something in order to get me to go to church. I also like Kraft mac and cheese as well though I can't remember the last time i've eaten it. And speaking of Capri Sun I just bought some last weekend since I hadn't had any in years. They're pretty tasty still. Never cared for fish sticks though. I also did lick glue once when I was little out of curiosity. Didn't taste very good.

I still love mcdonalds chix mcnuggets

Wow! Enjoyed your talented post and the pics! But hey, I miss the Kraft mac and cheese of the 70s. I remember it was THE lunch of choice for us kids all summer long. It was truly tangy and flavorful. Sometime in the early 80s, the formula changed to something weak and nearly flavorless and never recovered (like many a talk show). It just isn't the same anymore.

I agree. Although, I never ate glue, but spent a day at hospital for food poisoning from disgusting burgers.

it wasn't necessarly just food, but the a loaf of break soaked in sounds gross but i used to eat it like no tomorrow.

Ew, those things are gross.

This made me laugh out loud. I recall all that stuff.....especially Kraft Mac and Cheese...a total "kid" staple. I never cared for Cap't Crunch...or any of the Crunch cereals that came out after that either. It was too sweet and did make your milk taste like syrup...yuck. Since I am a child of the 70s...I wonder if anyone out there remembers a snack food inspired by NASA astronaunts.....or so we were lead to believe by the commercials for it....Space Food Sticks....? They offered different flavors, chocolate, vanilla and I think caramel too. They were in individual wrappers and had a semi-sweet chalky taste to them. I suppose they weren't filled with anything even remotely healthy either...but my friends and I....being from Florida...the home of the space program...we thought they were awesome! Funny thing is....I seriously doubt kids today would be interesting in tasting such junk unless they paraded it out as a "must try" on the Disney or Nick channels. :)

Loved Charleston Chews!! Used to buy them frozen solid at the pool I swam at......What about Space Sticks? Hardly anyone I run into remembers those......Another by-product of the Space Age.

How about Charleston Chews? :)

Veeana Sausages. (or however the hell you spell that.) I use to love those little things...after reading what was inside of them i told my dad i was gonna be a vegetarian :) and Lunchables. Ew.

watch ¨Meet your Meat¨on youtube people.<br />
Those ¨chicken nuggets¨from McDonalds were grind up peices of beak, nail, and other inner parts of chickens. You didn´t think they were using breast for the chicken nuggets did you? <br />
Hotdogs? Same thing...hoofs, snout, tongue, whatever is the cheapest way to make this very processed hotdog. <br />
Cheese and crackers? the cheese they use in these things has the same ingredients as plastic. Its exactly the same as eating plastic. <br />
Don´t feed this **** to you children for god´s sake!

Dude, you should write a humor book. You have true comedic talent. Seriously.

Remember when Ding Dongs were wrapped in foil...and we would "peel" all the chocolate off until it was just a little round cake with the creamy filling holes punctured in it? And what ever happened to those candy cigarettes with the tip painted red? Kids have it rough now days!

Yes lets not forget <br />
Tang the drink of Astronauts<br />
<br />
or chocolate covered frozen bananas<br />
<br />
since the made Chicken Nuggets healthy I can't stand the tast<br />
<br />
or it could be I just hit that magical age

My weakness as a Child was always HotDogs. I use to open them up and have half the package gone before we got home from the store. My Mother didn't like taking me to the store with her when she got Hot Dogs. They are still my Favorite, they are great. so is Mac, and Cheese. I am still a Kid At Heart.

U are a great writer.U had me laughing from start to finish. I cant believe i used to wear and eat candy necklaces and bracelets. We would play all day, getting dirty and sweaty while wearing the jewelry and everv now and then we would bite a chunk out of the candy. God.. what was i thinking?

I forgot about those! So true - and so gross now I think about it!

wow I STILL eat those things<br />
<br />
I still love those<br />
<br />
you left out Peanut butter and jelly<br />
<br />
yum yum

When you spend half of your life stuck behind the desk and sent someone out to the corner to grab some food, you'll see fish sticks and chicken nuggets appearing from time to time. <br />
<br />
White paper, brown paper, cardboard paper, elmer’s glue, chewing gum eraser tips, fruit-scented markers, staple pins, inks....all these things ended up in my mouth too.

I hold no grudge against those foods. Although I do remember all of them. Some of them I never did like. Others are still good. Although i never ate the glue, I just spread a la<x>yer on my hands, and then peeled it off when it was dry. I thought it was cool. <br />
<br />
But honestly, I save all my grudges for those toys which looked good in commercials but were just cheep and disappointing in real life. THOSE are something to still get worked up about! lol

ah i love love love this!! i wasnt raised in the 70s or even in the 80s and i ate all these!! great child hood memories....well except the spaghetti o's....i still wanna puke just hearing the name!! i loved the "cheese and crackers with the red stick"....i think i was raised in the wrong time haha


I grew up in the '90s, and I knew what all that stuff was! Of course, I know what Go-Gurt is too, but I ate it all! And I still drink Capri Sun by the way.

Spam is still around, Nancy. It's as gross as it ever was.<br />
I bet if you Google it...yikes! all kinds of recipes :(

Great post! <br />
Are you too young to remember Spam? Now, that was/is gross.

Chef Boyardee, Mrs. Paul, Oscar Meyer, Franco American.....they are all living large somewhere!

School supplies! LOL, too much, duderama!<br />
<br />
*scary thing is, I still eat quite a number of those's more than a little frightening!*<br />
<br />

Oh yes, I remember these 'yummy' treats as a child... and I lived through it although I have to wonder, will I develop some unknown illness as a delayed result of this stuff?!?!? <br />
<br />
I especially loved the Cap'n Crunch even though after eating it, the roof of my mouth would feel as though a slasher had taken a machetti to it!<br />
<br />
As for the Mac'n'Cheese, I'm sorry to say that one day my children may read a story similar to this and relate! <br />

thats cute :)

I thought I was the only person that ate those foods. Might explain my stomach problems.... Hmmmmmmm

Thanks!! Great story..I cackled out loud!!!!!!!!!

Wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

Glue was good when I was in kindergarten. Paste, well, only the weirdo kids ate paste at my school. ;)<br />
<br />
Thanks for the laugh and reminding me of my childhood... the good, the bad, and the ugly!

OK, fish sticks really do scare me.... but when it comes to Kraft Mac N Cheese (or Cheese N Macaroni as it got upgraded in the late 80s), ain't nothing better than when you cut of hot dogs and add that to the mix.<br />
<br />

Ugh. I always hated fish sticks.
