As I'm turning 20 I always think back how much things have changed, reminiscing about toys and sweets that meant every thing to me in my 90s/early 00s childhood. Man Crates is a company which does wooden crates filled with goodies for guys where you open the boxes with a crowbar!
I thought it was a pretty cool idea and got me thinking, if I had my own crate to jump me back into my childhood. I contacted a week or so ago by Man Crates, asking what I would put into my own little crate of nostalgic goodies. This was the little info they gave me.
'We're mostly from the same generation here at Man Crates, mainly children of the 70's and 80's. One of our most popular items is actually our Old School Crate which is full of nostalgic items from decades past. Often we'll get lost in conversations about the memorable items from our childhood. Everything from the special foods we used to have, such as Jell-O Pudding Pops and Clear Pepsi, to the amazing "technological advances" like Betamax and the Sony Walkman. I'm reaching out to see if you'd be interested in writing a post sharing some of the essential items that would be in your "old school crate." We'd love to hear the key ingredients that made up your wonder years! '
BN biscuits. Because were these not the most tasty biscuits ever? and although they've come back since they just aren't the same. and who didn't get the bn bn song stuck in their head. no one.

Those Gooey Aliens Eggs: Oh How cool we all thought we were back in junior school, the person that 'knew' how to make these guys have babies was the king of the playground, and to this day I don'r know if that was a thing,

Turkey Twizzlers: These were heaven. Though Jamie Oliver caused the complete extinction of turkey twizzlers cause they were made of a lot of rubbish, I still dream about how good these tasted. I'm a Jamie Oliver fan but damn do I miss these.

Saved by the bell Boxset? Oh Boy did I love this show, not sure if you even can get a boxset but I religiously watched this show. Zach was my babe and everything I Wanted. and the show made me hope high school was really that cool. ( it wasn't ). It was a good'n.

Tamagotchi: This little device meant everything to kids when I was younger, I remember avoiding falling to sleep because I was worried about my tamagotchi pet dying while I was asleep, I was pretty into it, But even now I'd love to play and look after my own little guy.
