Any self-respecting 90s kids remembers Gushers! They were in everyone’s lunch box. But why did they go away? It’s time for them to make a comeback!

If you grew up in the 90s or the early 2000s, you most likely either had Gushers in your lunchbox or wish you did. There is no other fruit snack like Gushers. While the outside is gummy and fruity just the gummy bear, the inside packs a juicy punch and surprises you no matter how many times you eat them. Every little hexagon-shaped piece gives you a fruity and sweet sugar bomb on your tongue and what kid can resist that?

But Gushers don’t seem to be as popular as they once were and that is a complete shame. Why have them only be for kids? Why let them just be a memory from your childhood? They’re still delicious! It’s time for 90s kids who are now adults to take back the snack and start enjoying them again.

And there are way more flavors than there was when we were kids. It’s not just the basic flavors anymore. Now they have tropical flavors, sour triple berry shock,  mixed flavors where the outside gummy doesn’t match the flavor of the inside, and mood morphers that change your tongue different colors.

It’s time to reintroduce some fun back to lunchtime, especially if you work at a less-than-stellar job. What better way to do that than by grabbing a bag of gushers when you’re having a bad day?

Gushers have been an underrated food for too long and need to be brought back into the lunches of kids and adults alike. Everyone loves gummy bears, why not give some love to another gummy snack? And with Gushers you get that extra punch of flavor every time you bit into one.
