So my cousins 30th birthday is coming up and I had the idea to get together a basket of popular food we had growing up! I have started a list, but I wanted to see what other things you ladies could add! Some things on my list may not be available in stores, so I will need alternatives! SO come on, add your favorite foods from the 80's!!! Here is what I have so far:
fruit stripe gum
little hug drinks
cool ranch doritos
pop rocks candy buttons bazooka gum
(yes, most everything I came up with was candy...I LOVED it! Still do actually! :) )
Canned fruit halves with cottage cheese in the middle of each half. I have no idea why, but my mother made those for EVERY get-together. They're not that good, but surprisingly not nearly as disgusting as they sound. I don't think I would actually serve them.

@theprincessmommy I love all the sugar cereals!!! Always have, always will. DH thinks I need to stop. Tough. And have you ever had capn crunch french toast??? So good!!! We used the crunch rries and had "berries" on top of ours! lol http://www.thehungryhousewife.com/2012/07/capn-crunch-french-toast.html
And as much as Spam grosses me out, that would be hilarious!!
Didn't Little Caesers also come wrapped in a paper wrapping?? I remember that from sports banquets, I think. lol And I remember zotz!!!
This is the list of candy that comes in the 80's gift basket they sell on Amazon:
