Some adults long for the amazing foods of their childhood, but out of fear of being judged, choose not to indulge. Here is a nostalgic ode to the foods that made our childhood special and the many reasons why you should still enjoy them.
Hey, adults need variety in their packed lunches, too. With these you get crackers, meat, cheese, and something sweet. And the pizza ones are best!
Who cares if SpongeBob is on the box? Yogurt in a tube is efficient and delicious.
Fruit Roll-Ups, Fruit by the Foot, etc.—they’re all pure genius and should be enjoyed, no matter your age.
Gummy bears, gummy worms, Sour Patch Kids—these don’t have to be just a memory. Dig in and enjoy.
Adults deserve to have juice on the go, too. And juice in a pouch is way cooler than juice in a box.

Trix are not just for kids. Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Frosted Flakes, Cap’n Crunch—adults deserve fun cereals, too, regardless of the goofy cartoon characters on the box.

Kangaroo-shaped graham crackers with their own icing dip is sheer brilliance. The only catch is that they’re hard to find nowadays. Amazon.com is one place you might find the great snack.
Sure, they’re graham crackers shaped like teddy bears, but they’re so good and come in the best flavors, like honey and cinnamon. Until they make an adult equivalent, we’re going to continue to shamelessly buy these.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to enjoy a quick, light meal that has variety—even if it is a kids’ meal.
Even though a lot of people consider these fish-shaped crackers a kids’ snack, it’s totally okay for grown-ups to eat these.
