Where to Buy Your Fave Childhood Snacks You Can’t Get in Stores
Some of our favorite foods and snacks, both from our childhood and beyond, have unfortunately made their early way to the grave. Reminisce about these unbeatable and irreplaceable snacks and know that with the power of the Internet, you can still buy most of them online (you can really find anything on Amazon).

Perhaps the absolute best snack to find in your lunch box or at summer camp, even when the ratio of cookies to frosting was SO off, Dunkaroos was rudely taken away from all children who love copious amounts of frosting. Dunk away after purchasing them here.
You were without a doubt the most popular kind in the lunch room when you opened up your lunch box to discover Sprinkl’ins yogurt (I know I was). Everyone would crane their heads toward my lunch to see what color or shape sprinkles I had that day and everyone would gasp in awe when I stirred the sprinkles into my yogurt to create a rainbow of pure happiness. You can buy a pack for $2.99 (if you dare) here.
French Toast Crunch
Cinnamon Toast Crunch may triumph now, but French Toast Crunch ruled in the days before. Spend a casual $30 on a box of cereal here.
Heinz EZ Squirt Ketchup
I’m really not sure what ever propelled my 7-year-old self to insist on purchasing ketchup with names and colors to match like Blastin’ Green, Funky Purple, Stellar Blue, and perhaps the scariest of all: Mystery Color. Revolted doesn’t even begin to cover it. You fortunately (or unfortunately, for some) cannot purchase this “exotic” condiment, though you can buy a plush version here for nostalgia’s sake.
With a description like “obviously very old,” you can take your chances ordering them here. But when you’re desperate, you’re desperate.
Ritz Handi Snacks
Kraft really figured out that all kids want to do is spread a Velveeta-like substance called “cheez” over crackers. Yum. Buy it here.
It may have been colorless, and it may have been caffeine-free, but Sprite Remix was loved by all. May you rest in peace. And maybe even purchase one (even if it’s flat…it has been 10 years after all) here.
Clearly Doritos wanted to create a food of the future, but their take plummeted into the chasm of failure. Buy them here.Find all 13 of your favorite childhood snacks by heading over to Spoon University.
