    Did you drink these when you were a kid?

    I haven't seen them in quite a while, though they were shown in a PBS documentary last month. I don't think I ever had one, nor can I fathom putting something like that in my body. But apparently as kids we thought they were pretty good. Did a lot of people enjoy these tiny barrels of nuclear waste?

    Yeah, I remember drinking them when I was younger, but not that often.

    Haven't had one in years though.

    Teenies and Big bursts (the large 50 cent version with a nipple on the top). Used to get em all the time when I lived in Boston. Along with 25 cent bags of chips, lol. Teenies were also 25 cents.

    And these. How is it acceptable to sell this stuff to children?

    Yeah! In fact, my husband and I saw some of those at Walmart, and got all nostalgic. We almost bought them just for the hell of it, but I didn't like most of the colors except for red :P

    The real candy rot, I haven't seen anything like this since I was a kid, they were banned I think due to the obvious, this was well over 25 years ago now, but I do remember stuff like this.

    they are hugs right? if so my little sister drinks them all the time... or at least gives them out to her friends
    You're a fine example of how gamer communities have become infested with endlessly whining and bitching, arrogant, opinionated, unreasonable, all the way immature, completely delusional, tendentially psychotic, insulting individuals one really doesn't want to be linked with. And playing with you guys is certainly no fun at all. I don't know where this kind of folks spawns from. Must be a nest somewhere ...

    yep, what breadisfunny said. I remember enjoying them when I was a kid...haven't had them for a long time, but from the taste my brain is remembering, I don't think I would care much for them now.

  15. #15
    Yeah, I had those exactly and remember liking them. Same for Kool-Aid and Capri Sun. I've since tried them all in my 20's and found them all so very disgusting. I can't believe I could drink them.
