58% similar. I do miss Cheese Tidbits. I never ate Koogle, but I chose it because I can't decide whether or not I like Nutella. It's one of those weird foods for me. And I'm glad that Planter's gave up that line. None of them were very good IMO. I've eaten them, but they were probably cheap so it's what my mother bought.

Wish they would bring PizzaSpins back. They were so good. There are no pizza flavored snacks. I've looked and I just can't find any.

You got 83% similar

Totally forgot about Tidbits. They were good.

On the one with Marathon vs. Snickers that looks like the coupon that came in the Sunday paper comics for a free Marathon bar. I had 2 paper routes at the time and took a bunch of coupons, probably 50. I never ate another Marathon after that.

This proves one thing, snacks have gotten tastier and more creative although I'm not sure there any healthier

I got 66% similar to everybody else's answers. I chose Smurf-Berry Crunch over Trix because I remember loving that cereal as a kid back in the '80s ❤️. And I chose the original Yoo Hoo over Nesquick because I remember Yoo Hoo back in the '80s and it was delicious 😋! Not like the Yoo Hoo of today.

Nesquick doesn't even taste the same anymore. Back in the '80s, Nesquick used to come in tin cans and it had much better flavor to it compared to today's Nesquick that comes in plastic containers and just doesn't taste the same. The other one that I chose that was different from the popular vote was String Things. They were pretty good when I was a kid 🙂.

And the last one that that I chose that was different from the popular choice was the peanut 🥜 butter spreads. I chose Koogle over Nutella. I've tried Nutella and it doesn't taste good at all. I never had Koogle but it's gotta be better than Nutella and that's why I picked it.

This was a pretty fun poll, MeTV 🙂👍!

I agree with you on Nutella. Terrible taste and too thick

I do not drink Pepsi I Just had to choose one I drink ice tea
Coldnorth slister 15 months ago
I love unsweetened iced tea. Southerners seem to like sweet iced tea. Whenever we go south in the winter, if order unsweetened iced tea the waitress says I bet your from a northern state. Well that and my accent I suppose. Lol
Glornt Coldnorth 11 months ago
I'm completely Southern and don't like my tea sweetened.

75%. Never heard of Banana Flips (and wouldn't eat them, anyway--love bananas themselves, can't stand anything banana-flavored). Love both cherry Pepsi and Crystal Pepsi--liked Pepsi Berry, too--and I grew up on Nestle chocolate milk. The closest I ever got to Yoo Hoo was trying it once (only once) in the late 70s/early 80s and a vague memory of my dad saying he used to deliver it...I think.

I also grew up with Nestlé chocolate milk. I tried YooHoo a few years ago and it tasted like a very watered-down version of chocolate milk. Wasn't crazy about it.

Can't find Tid-Bits anywhere.... Now wondering where the TID came from..

50% Half of the stuff I've never heard of, and I don't consider breakfast cereal as snack food no matter how much sugar it has in it.
Coldnorth jd4862 15 months ago
I love dry sugar pops for a snack anytime. Right out of the box, no milk
Moverfan Coldnorth 14 months ago
Any kind of cereal straight out of the box! It's much better when there's no chance of it getting soggy.
Gossemer 15 months ago
Meh 50%. Honestly the corn chips were so similar it didnt matter which you ate, I picked Fritos because that was always the gold standard for corn chips. LOL the Fritos jingle was better too. " munch a bunch of fritos".
Moverfan Gossemer 15 months ago
I don't remember Planters corn chips at all--I may have eaten them, I just don't remember. Now Planters cheese balls...those I remember...went through cans of them (yum yum yum)!
Gossemer Moverfan 15 months ago
Ah ya definitely. Think I've seen them still. But haven't tried them. Wonder if they are still good?
Moverfan Gossemer 15 months ago
I haven't seen them in years, so my only advice would be to check the expiration date on the can. (And I'd they are still making them, tell us where we can buy them--I loved those things!(
Peter_Falk_Fan Moverfan 15 months ago
Planters brought them back a couple of years ago. Google "Planters Cheez Balls". About half of the reviewers say they were disappointed. They say that something has changed (either taste or texture). The $2 ones on the Big Lots website were 'out of stock'. I would like to try them again and see for myself.
Gossemer Peter_Falk_Fan 14 months ago
Lol, that figures, they always have to mess with success. Ah well, like they say " ya cant go back".
Gossemer Peter_Falk_Fan 14 months ago
Figures. Almost got excited to try em again. You'd think a company like planters would be quality consistent

I had a banana flip about 3 years ago on a trip out west. Can't remember what town we were in when I saw them in a mini mart.

50% similar. The only one I wouldn’t really want to choose were the #11 ones.

Toastettes always tasted like a mouth full of Crisco.

* I was out on a public street when a local cop approached me to verify that I wasn't drinking from an open can of beer. At that time I was drinking Yoo Hoo
Coldnorth RedSamRackham 15 months ago
What’s yoo hoo
Moverfan Coldnorth 14 months ago
Chocolate water, pretty much...
Coldnorth Moverfan 14 months ago
Thanks, never heard of them
Coldnorth 15 months ago
The banana flip is the 1 I miss most. Those were tasty. Twinkies are good but don’t taste the same as I remember
IndianaRockz Coldnorth 9 months ago
Little Debbie Banana Twins are pretty good if they still make them.
I agree those greasy little Twinkies do not taste the same.
