If you had a Lunchables at school during lunch time, you were the hippest kid in the cafeteria. If you don't think so, fight us. Nothing beats the joy of opening up that pack of moderately to highly unhealthy treats and letting the other kids know you're better than them. Your brown sack lunch is lame, Dylan. Go home.
Anything called "Pizza and Treatza" has to be the coolest thing in the entire world. It's in the name.
And hey, look, it's got a whole 12 grams of protein. The health!
Over the years, Lunchables came out with some pretty amazing flavors for your mom to feel guilty about giving you. Let's take a stroll down memory lane.
If you didn't think about what these were made out of, then they were the best lunch you've ever had. Also, we never noticed that the ketchup had starch added until just now. Mmm, ketchup and starch with our mystery meat. Honestly, we still wouldn't care. Nothing would stop us from eating these.
You know what was particularly fun about this combo? You could tell other people it was not yo's. You know, like nachos? We're sorry, we had to. But seriously, nothing was as good as slamming that cheese dip into your face and then eating everything else separately. All party of the healthiest lunch you can get your hands on.
We'll be honest with you. It was kind of hard to find a picture for this one. Perhaps because Lunchables wants to erase the confusing evidence that they're a brand called Lunchables, and are making breakfast foods? Can we have Dinnerables, too? That way we never have to prepare a meal ever again.
Our only wish is that there were more hot dogs. These little mini ones didn't really even add up to one hotdog. You get the Hershey's bar to make up for it, though. Even though that was small as well. But hey, that's kind of the whole gimmick of Lunchables.
There's nothing that's as fun to say as "Lunchables pizza kabobbles." Seriously, try it. As you can also imagine, they were fun to eat, too. Stick a pretzel through your chicken nugget and cheese, and you're the kabobble master.
You didn't live your childhood if you didn't spend lunch stacking these guys as high as you could and seeing how many you could eat at once. Oh, you were busy eating broccoli and being healthy? You're in really great shape now? Still sucks to be you.
8. Lunchables with Smoothie: Deep Dish Pizza With Pepperoni
Not only do you get deep dish pizzas for lunch, you get a smoothie, too. See, Lunchables isn't all unhealthy. They're giving you a sugary, sweet smoothie to wash down your pepperoni and cheese. Good ol' Lunchables. Always had our backs.
If you ever felt your pizza was a little light on the cheese, then this was the lunch for you. You could even win a trip to Australia just by eating a delicious pizza. You were the envy of the whole school yard, especially those kids who just had regular old pizza.
Yes, breakfast is back again in a confusing yet delicious way. "Fun to eat, no need to heat," was the motto of these guys. Yet you knew that if there was a microwave around, that you were going to heat them up anyway.
There's mini hot dogs, so it only makes sense that there are mini burgers. The only thing that could have possibly made this better was mini pickles and mini lettuce. But you had your mini ketchup and mini mustard, so it was all good.
Everyone knows that the ultimate way to make something awesome is to use a "z" instead of an "s." Lunchables knows that all too well. They were venturing into some new territory here with wraps, but it's Lunchables, so obviously we're going to eat it no matter what.
Who needs Subway when you can whip one of these babies out of your lunch pale? You became the ultimate sandwich crafter when armed with this lunch. We could have killed for a little mustard and lettuce, but you can only fit so much into a tiny little box.
Here we have it. Possibly the most classic Lunchables of all time. Everyone parted the way for you at the lunch table when you walked up with this guy in your lunch box. You could savor three whole pizzas and about two pepperonis per pizza to boot. This right here is the height of all school lunches.
Every now and then, Lunchables broke from their tried and true methods of putting tiny foods into a box and calling it a lunch. You still got your turkey stackers in this box, but you also got to, er, mess with your mouth. You could try the sour tongue teasing fizz on its own, or, as pictured, pour it all over your turkey. Yum!
