    I remember something like that, but they had strange faces on them. They would fill those things up so much that some would come out when you twisted off the top.

    I'm mean because you're stupid.

    Ah yes, I remember the P.E coach handing them out on Fun Fridays along with animal crackers. We would get about 5 animal crackers for doing something over the week, I don't remember but it involved running and jump ropes.
    Then my 5th grade year and shit hit the fan. Vending machines gone, no snacks sold at lunch, no Fun Fridays, P.E coach gone, and school lunches changed to watered down newspaper filler... Mashed news potato paper was okay though. =\

    So that's what those were called! When I was stocking juice at my last job I was looking at the kool-aid bottles that looked like those Squeeze-Its and couldn't remember what happened to ones I used to drink as a kid. I knew they started with 'squ' though.

    I remember being so excited to have a cold lunch when my mum bought those things XD

    haven't had 1 in a long, my nephew likes them at H.E.B. u can buy like 6 for a dollar

    Remember them, but don't remember the taste as I'm highly susceptible to artificials

    Reminded me of this, think it only applies to the UK though

    Yes I drank them. My favorite were these though because you could chew the wax afterwards:

    I used to drink the blue because it was my favorite color.
    Now looking at these again, those don't look like bottles. Especially that red one...

    I don't get it. What am I missing. People are calling them 'nuclear waste' and saying 'beyond the obvious'. Is there some widely known issue with these drinks? I mean of course they are unhealthy but surely not worse then Coke or Mt. Dew right?


    I never had anything like that, my mom and I were broke to the point of homelessness when I was of age to enjoy that kid of thing, and even then onve we got back on our feet she wouldn't really ever buy any junk food like that anyway.

    Per piece that stuff is cheap but at kid consumption rates, over time, it adds up to be quite expensive. Especially when you figure that its really just an addition to an existing diet, so regardless of how cheap it is its 100% unnecessary cost.

    Yes. When I was a kid, I had long nails, and all my friends would ask me to dig holes in the top for straws since the tops were so annoying to pry off. :P

    I think I was about 16 the first time I actually had one of these put in front of me. I didn't know what to do with it. I tried to open the top and get the candy out but then it just kind of fell apart. It never once crossed my mind that one was meant to eat or even chew the whole thing.....it was baffling to me.

    Someone is going start linking hard facts in a little bit now that you ask...

    You can still buy them at walmart.

    I bought some out of nostalgia awhile back and they still taste the same (unlike everything else from my childhood "Fuck you Pringles/Dorito's")
    That said I still prefer the original flavor of Hawaiian punch.

    And for the record those little fruit barrels and that jelly paste crap are still healthier than anything with aspartame such as Diet Cola

    Yeah I have not had one of those in a long time... I remember them tasting awful as I got older tho.

    Back when I was a kid, they were pretty widely sold, so yep.
