Consider the Gusher. A misshapen succulent nugget of pure deliciousness, bursting at the seams with a droplet of divine... goo. The Gusher is everything a '90s snack needed to be: its mind-numbingly sweet, it's colors are cool, and you could never just eat one package.
If only adult life could be as simple as enjoying a Gusher sandwich (a pack of Gushers smooched between two strawberry Pop-Tarts) while simultaneously debating the cinematic merits of the Goonies vs. Hook and finishing spelling homework under the lunch table. Each and every Gusher was bursting with potential, just like we were back then. That's why I'll always love them -- they remind me of what I once was, and where I'm going.
Also, if you got the goo in someone's hair, it was great and totally gross.
