About This Quiz

We all had our favorite childhood foods. Some of us grew up with a sweet tooth and would sneak various candies, such as Mike and Ikes, behind our parents' backs. Others miss the savory treats, such as pizza bites. 

Every generation has those unique treats, so iconic that the mere taste of them brings members of that generation back to their childhood. For Baby Boomers, it's often Fruit Stripe gum, which is known for its distinctive zebra patterns. For Gen X, it's Jell-O Pudding Pops and Reese's Pieces because E.T. featured the candy so prominently. As for Millennials, they had Push Pops, Teddy Grahams and Kudos bars. Xennials find themselves caught between Gen X and Millennials, but that simply means that they got to taste some of the best foods from two eras. 

Xennials may be unique, but they are not the only ones to have tasted foods from several generations. There are many foods and drinks that are timeless. Most people alive had Pop-Tarts, Kool-Aid, Jello-O and Laffy Taffy as children. 

Are you ready to find out which generation your favorite foods place you in? Let us guess if you were a child in the '60s, '70s, '80s or '90s! You could find out that you were born in the wrong decade!
