Lunch time as an adult is just not half as great as it was when you're a child.


Limp lettuce leaves and barely hot soup don't even come close to the lunches of yore. I mean, check these guys out...

1. Billy roll

Coloured ham. Delicious.

2. Frubes

Giving a toddler a messy tube of white goo. What could possibly go wrong?

3. Dairylea Lunchables

Heaven on Earth.

4. Cheese strings

Did they even contain any real cheese?

You know what, we kind of like the mystery.

5. Sunny D

Banned by every dentist on Earth at the time.

6. Smooth 'n' juicy

Aka 'that weird orange juice and milk drink'.

7. Ribena

Purple drank FTW.

8. Babybel cheese

The (other) fake cheese that was as tasty as eat as it was fun to play with.

(And hard to open).

9. Iced gems

The delicious sugary treat that became famous more recently due to young lads cutting their hair in this fashion.

Just to confirm that the world did indeed lose its mind in 2016.

10. Individually wrapped plastic yellow cheese


11. A happy animal a top a wheel of cheese

So. Much. Cheese.

12. And finally, Cheese and sticks
