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.


Cadbury Eggs

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

Silly Putty was literally the best Easter toy, ever. I mean, why else would it be packaged in little, plastic eggs?
