Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtle Cereal:
The ads were scarse. Hardly anybody could believe such a thing was real. but in 1993, Nestle, Hershey and Butterfinger had their own "chocolate drinks".
I found the Banana-split drink at a 7-11 that was seated just below the temporary condo I was living in, and I fell in love. It tasted just like a liquid banana in my mouth, but with a sweet sensation of Hershey's! I practically lived off of this stuff for a year, when suddenly it was yoinked from the shelves.
Even more curious, the people who amde it swear to God that it never existed, along with another box, which went by the names "Marshmellow" or "Smores" Hershey Drink.
If you're lucky, you can find the Root Beer, Plain, Chocolate and Strawberry varieties, but I promise you, they are nothing like this Banana concoction.
BEFORE YOU START no, I am not referring to the McNuggets you find today. These 1993 ones tasted differently I tell you! This was a different time,
when nobody knew about pink slime ~ because it wasn't being used!! This was also before McDonald's started advertising "Now made with WHITE meat"
raising suspicions as to what the hell I was eating before then. No. These little barely-seasoned morsels had a corn-oil like aftertaste and often
came in a box with two of them shaped like Christmas stockings. And in 1993, I visited a Virginia Beach McDonald's that both did home delivery and took checks. Did you hear that? That was angels singing at the mention. It should actually be a law for all fast food joints to employ more workers, specifically for this very thing. It would turn around the economy overnight, get people off the streets and provide the poor with a cheap alternative to starvation.
They were light, never left behind a mess, and great for the rental. Now I'm curious as to why theyr'e gone. Hmm...
Just a few years ago, my friend Jason and I stayed up all night, talking about how awesome this cereal was. A crispy, light, honey tasting cereal that stayed crunchy in milk. Somewhere, I should still have my Batman bank, complete with sticker eyes and a poorly cut slit in Michael Keaton's head for coins.
I'm a huge fan of mozerella sticks and these were quite tasty.
Items number 32 and 33 on my mother's divorce decree are likely these drinks. My father actually did let me drink two entire jugs of Slimer once, and the sweet, nearly-lime flavor was so intoxicating, that after it made me throw up for three days straight, I went back for more.
drink, which also made me violently ill. Combine the two, and it's brain damage. tasty, tasty brain damage.
The closest thing I have to this now that it's been recalled would be mixing a can of Pocky/Chocorooms and a cup of frosting.
Just about every single person my age wishes they could go back in time for an after-school date with these sweetened cookies in sprinkle loaded frosting.
Often times, people try to tell me that Nutter butters are exactly like PB Crisps. And while the flavor is the same, I must say ... NAY!! NAY I tell you!!
PB Crisps were the staple food of 1993. They were light, little crisps, filled to the brim with sweetened peanut butter. I could down an entire bag of this in one sitting. (My metabolism was high at age 7, so I barely gained a pound that entire year.) Long have I searched, but there are no replacements.
