The ‘90s were a glorious time for all things fructose and sucrose. Parents packed sugary treats into school lunches with reckless abandon. The lunchroom snack-swapping market was in full swing. The FDA didn’t care about red dye #5, and candy came in every shade of the radioactive rainbow. Sugar highs were a standard part of American childhood, and TV advertisers knew how to make their snacks look x-tremely cool to 12-year-olds. It was, in short, the bomb.
While that golden era is long gone, nostalgic grownups looking to relive those sugary memories can do so at cocktail hour with these bright and boozy drinks, made with three of our favorite ‘90s staples: Gushers, Pop Rocks and Dunkaroos.
