22 Foods That Millennials Immediately Think Of When They About The '90s

We all have nostalgic foods that when we eat them or think about them they immediately transport us back to a certain time and place. For example, when I think of Quiznos, I'm immediately transported back to the early '00s — and I can practically taste the raspberry chipotle sauce (which I was addicted to) that I'd ask for on my toasted turkey sub.

And recently, Reddit user u8miladoo touched upon that very subject when they asked The '90s subreddit: "What Food first comes to your mind when you think of the '90s?"
