Carton of Minute Maid's Five Alive and a cup of Orange Julius
14 Foods From The '80s You Probably Forgot About
Orange Julius
Founded in 1926, Orange Julius was around for decades before its peak in the 1980s. The drink soon made its way into shopping malls across the country.
After its purchase by Dairy Queen in the late '80s, Orange Julius began using more artificial flavors. Unfortunately, Dairy Queen is now phasing out the drink altogether.
Hi-C Ecto Cooler
Recognizable by its rectangular juice box packaging with Ghostbuster’s notorious Slimer on it, the neon green Hi-C Ecto Cooler was a popular drink in the 1980s.
While the drink briefly returned for the release of 2021’s "Ghostbuster: Afterlife," Hi-C Ecto Cooler was rebranded in the late ’90s as 'Shoutin' Orange Tangerine.'
Sizzlean — a combination of turkey, pork, and beef — was marketed as a healthier alternative to bacon and became a household name during the '70s and '80s.
The product was sold widely throughout the '80s and '90s, but it lost much popularity as the low-fat era began to die out. The product was officially discontinued in 2005.
Jolt Cola
Launched in 1985, Jolt Cola was known for its high caffeine and sugar. It was said to be a pushback against all the "diet" soft drinks coming out at the time.
Jolt filed for bankruptcy in 2009. The drink had a brief reboot in 2017 and became a Dollar General exclusive before eventually fading out of sight for good.
The chocolate-covered Carnation’s breakfast bars were brought to market in the mid-'70s and became more popular in the 1980s and early '90 before being discontinued.
There were two attempts to relaunch the breakfast bars; the first was in the mid-'90s, and then in 2014. However, neither attempt was very successful.
