The 90’s was an awesome decade. The snacks were cheaper, tasted better and were always at our disposal. The real question is how many of these have you tried?
1- Super Magic Gum
This gum was probably one of the most exciting things about our childhood. I’m not sure if it was actually magical though. Now, all we have is Trident and Chiclets!
Bistek, bistek, bistek, naw! Chocolata Gersy wakla el gaw. Bounty ain’t got nothing on this!
This chocolate wafer biscuit is probably the best kind of wafer biscuit out there. Bimbo kan ye3’leb 2gda3 Loacker.
4- Corona Chocolate
Mmmm. Milk chocolatey awesomeness! Tastes of childhood goodness!
5- Batouq Gum
This multicolored gum pack allowed you to have 4 different flavors so you never get bored!
6- Tiny Size Chiclets Gum
And if four flavors weren’t enough, Tiny Size gum allowed you to mix and match multiple colors and flavors in one pack.
7- Mandolin Chocolate
The taste of a Mars bar, with the flavor and flair of Egypt. The one and only Mandolin chocolate!
8- Star Chocolate
Star chocolate was the crunchiest chocolate bar in existence, a wafer covered in rice crispies and chocolate. Yum-yum!
9- Ramba Gum
Apparently, our generation was really big on gum for some reason. These gumballs were all kinds of fruit-flavored fun.
10- Samba Wafer
This wafer had the power to make you go “Ah yanni ya5wati!” And if you don’t believe us, watch their ad:
11- Chico Bon
For the Egyptian version of chocolate M&M’s. 27san men el 2gnabii.
12- S & S
And this is the Egyptian version of peanut M&M’s.
13- Shame3dan Wafer
The original Egyptian wafer since 1988!
14- Nawa3em Biscuits
These were the ultimate tea biscuits. Dunking them in your tea was quite possibly the best thing that happened to you and your tea!
15- Best Juice
These juice packs meant we got to carry around our fruity freshness. If only we could figure out how to put the straw in.
16- Lolita Popsicles
Dealing with the heat was so much easier with these lovely little popsicle sticks!
Honorable Mentions (Photos not found): Chipsy Karate, Drums Popcorn.
So how many of those have you tried? We realize that zaman el sha2awa is long gone, but at least with these snacks we know that it sure was sweet!
