13 DIY Snack Foods from the 90’s

rs_600x796-150430104629-CD20z_PVIAAfh6j OK, I know I’m a little late to the party because it’s already May, but I just couldn’t resist!

If you’re unfamiliar with this meme, here’s a little background: Fellow 90’s kids might remember the 2000 NSYNC hit, “It’s Gonna Be Me” (simultaneously the coolest and creepiest music video ever).


Since about 2012, a variety of memes and GIFs with Justin Timberlake singing the lyric with the misheard caption have been circulating all over the web, particularly during the last week of April leading up to May.

To honor the awesomeness that was NSYNC, I’m gonna take you way back to the nifty 90’s with this collection of DIY 90’s snack foods. From Dunkaroos to Sunny D, you can get a taste of your childhood with this snack-attack of after-school goodness.
