Lunchables for adults
Oscar Mayer

Remember those pre-packaged sandwich kits from childhood? Well, they are no longer a thing of your past. 

Oscar Mayer is introducing P3 Portable Protein Packs, which are re-branded versions of Lunchables for adults. If Oscar Mayer is taking a trip down memory lane, we wouldn’t mind a few of these snacks from the past being re-introduced for adults as well.

Kraft Handi-Snacks: The nutritional value may be questionable, but these small packs of crackers and "cheez" dip still have a sweet spot in our childhood memories.

Bugles: We would love for General Mills to make an age-appropriate way for adults to place Bugles on each of their fingers before picking the snacks off with their teeth.

Bubble Tape: Remember the days when tape wasn't a mundane office supply, but was instead hot pink and tasted like candy?

Fruit-by-the-Foot: Savor the foot-long sugar bomb and enjoy the nostalgia that comes with each bite.

Dunkaroos: Bring back the naivety that allowed us to dunk cookies in rainbow frosting and feel no guilt.

Smucker's Uncrustables: It's difficult to not feel like an elementary school student (or just plain lazy) when dining on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that's been handed to you with no crust.

Fun Dip: It's hard to look respectable at the office when you're dipping a sugar stick into flavored, colored sugar. But oh, that sugar rush (and crash)!
