When I was a kid, Easter was a huge deal. The Easter Bunny (my parents) went all-out every year with baskets full of candy, pastel-colored plastic eggs and small knick-knacks overflowing with fake, bright green grass.
So, to cure my nostalgia (and yours) here’s a list of things that all ’90s kids hoped to find in their Easter basket on Sunday morning.
What could be better (or weirder) than chocolate eggs filled with an ooey-gooey, creamy center? On Easter Sunday, absolutely nothing.
Lip Smacker Lip Gloss
Whether it was liquid, roll-on or in chapstick-form, Lip Smackers were the trendiest lipglosses of them all. And you definitely had every flavor imaginable. I can imagine middle-school me smiling across the room at my crush while peeling my hair off of my shiny (sticky) lips now.
Smarties Hard Candy Necklaces
For a reason I still cannot explain today, I really enjoyed chomping food that was not only on a string, but on a string that also doubled as a bracelet or necklace. Shout out to candy-stained necks everywhere.
Fruit Stripe Chewing Gum
Fruit Stripe was colorful and delicious. Bonus, each pack came with temporary tattoos.
Silly Putty was literally the best Easter toy, ever. I mean, why else would it be packaged in little, plastic eggs?
