Food / Drink that has gotten up to 88

Bubble Tape

Monday, April 26th, 2010

Bubble tape was the pretty much the best thing ever when I was a kid, since it meant you could stuff as much gum in your mouth as possible. Sure you could have done this with a bunch of sticks of normal gum, but it’s just not the same.

I think it was supposed to be like a tape measure of gum, which makes sense because all the tape measures in the 90s were being used to make slap bracelets.

Fresca

Friday, August 14th, 2009

Fresca was huge in the 80′s/90′s but mostly amongst kooky and eccentric people. I might be making this up, but it seemed like mostly weird Democrats. What do weird Republicans drink? Tab?

For all intents and purposes Fresca has got up to 88, but I’m sure more than a few weirdos keep it at 87.

Bacon Bits

Bacon Bits are definitely a thing of the late 80′s / 90′s. Maybe they haven’t gotten all the way up to 88 though, I still see them in salad bars.
