These chips are an all time favourite snack. It is still loved by everyone and not just your usual 90’s kid since forever, because “no one can eat just one.” A 90’s kid would remember stacking two pieces together and having it like a burger. Another way to have these chips were with dahi ka dip, which we still love doing.

2. Pringles

Pringles is an American brand of delicious potato and wheat based stackable chips owned by Kellogg’s or as the 90’s kids know it as “the only brand that never sold air”. There are a number of flavours found these days, but plain salted and sour cream and onion were always enjoyed by the 90’s kids.

3. Peppy Cheese Balls

Whenever we had a cheesy craving, cheese balls came to our rescue. Every 90’s birthday party was loaded with cheese balls, because we were too cool for jalapeño poppers.

4. Peppy Piknik

These chips were not just eaten at picnics (hah!) but also on those days when we didn’t want to eat spicy chips. The sweet and tangy flavour, could never stop us from munching them. And the portions inside those bags were a lot!

As kids, we remember eating Cheetos and collecting all the Tazos that came inside packet. This particular flavour was the spiciest of all the flavours. But we would still stuff our mouth with it, because it was just so damn good.

This brand launched in India. The delicious taste, their cute little advertisements and comic strips at the back of the pack, always got us excited to buy these yummy packets. These pudina flavoured potato chips can never go out of style.

10. Crax

Yes, you remember it right! It is a ring-like snack. The kids used it to put on their fingers like a ring and then ate it. If one kid started putting them on, the other kids would follow to do the same. It was like eating delicious edible accessories.

11. O’Yes

Every 90’s kid would remember stuffing their face on these puffs. They were available in only 3 flavours, and we could try two of those flavours in the 10 rupees that we saved.
