Since man foraged berries, human beings have always had a sweet tooth but with the latter half of the 20th century man perfected the art of junk food with new techniques in manufacturing sugar, sugar substitutes and preservatives. What does that equal? Enough candy and crap to feed the world population, well, forever. As an 80s kid I was exposed to an unprecedented variety of cavity-creating, diabetes-inducing crap and man, was I on a mission to taste it all! This list includes foods that debuted in the 80s, were common in the 80s or fizzled out in the 80s never to entice again. For 80s Candy click here.
