About This Quiz

No matter when you were born, you've likely enjoyed your fair share of junk food in your life.  It's a rite of passage for any kid to spend the little money they can scrounge down at the corner store on just the worst food imaginable.  Back in the day that was penny candies and Moon Pies and other antiquities of junk food's bygone era.   Today it may be Doritos and Skittles and about 15 different kinds of M&Ms.  Your grandkids are absolutely going to be eating sugar-coated Mars rocks, just wait and see. 

Because junk food is such an ever-changing thing, you can figure out some things about a person based on their junk food proclivities.  After all, if someone tells you they used to take Cragmont soda and animal crackers in their school lunch, you can have a good idea they haven't been to school in the last decade because who ever heard of Cragmont soda? Did we just make that up?  Ask your parents. 

So here's the deal, you answer some questions for us about your junk food preferences, and we'll tell you what decade of life you're currently enjoying.  It's just that simple.  Junk food - it's the key to knowing your fellow humans!
