Oh, the '90s. It was a decade that really was all that and a bag of chips. A time when you were most likely to be found downing a pack of Gushers or mini pizza bites while you listened to music on your portable CD player. While you might immediately be able to close your eyes and remember what that first bite of a Cosmic Brownie tastes like, have you ever wondered which of these snacks was truly the worst, health-wise?

Think about it—the 1990s was a time when just about everyoneate processed foods that came in bright colors and fun (aka artificial) flavors. Not even breakfast was safe. (Just think about the cereals that seemed more like a dessert and Pop-Tarts you most likely started your morning with!) This is all just a nice way of saying you were eating loads of sugar. Your nostalgia might come calling when you're grocery shopping and you find yourself wandering down the snack aisle, gazing over at the snacks from your youth, but there is one option that wasn't a good idea then, and still isn't.
