With this hella cool guide, you’ll reminisce about that glorious decade when Beanie Babies seemed like a smart economic investment and Kris Kross had you wearing your pants backward. Whether you contracted dysentery on the Oregon Trail or longed to attend Janet Reno’s Dance Party, you’ll get a kick out of seeing which toys, treats, and trends stayed around, and which flopped.

So throw your ponytail into a scrunchie, take a swig from your can of Surge, and join us on this ride through the unforgettable (and sometimes unforgivable) trends of the ’90s.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Yes, it's already time to become nostalgic about the nineties. For all those who yearn for the magic days of yesteryears when Braveheart and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective ruled the screen, and Blind Date and Supermarket Sweep kept you mentally occupied, this is the book for you. Ideally read with Totino's Deluxe Frozen Pizza. Editor's recommendation.

From the Publisher
Praise for Whatever Happened to Pudding Pops

"A great nostalgia-inducing gift for fellow members of Generation X."
—Richmond (VA) Times-Dispatch

"With entries like 'John Hughes Movies,' 'Judy Blume Books,' 'Love’s Baby Soft' and 'Pen Pals,' it’s hard not to go into a state of nostalgic euphoria while reading Whatever Happened to Pudding Pops?"
—The Weekender, Wilkes-Barre, PA

"Gael Fashingbauer Cooper and Brian Bellmont are two people who obviously lived through and loved the '70s and '80s. They're funny and sharp, and their passion for pop jumps off the page."

—Whitney Matheson, USA Today Pop Candy

"A pop culture flashback"
—Jen Chaney, The Washington Post

"I was reading this book the other night and just howling at some of these entries."
—Rachel Martin, "All Things Considered," National Public Radio

"...filled with nostalgia memory bombs that will apparently make you want to 'throw your ponytail into a scrunchie and take a swig from your can of Surge.'"
—The Huffington Post

"The language is snappy, the pace brisk, and the research impressive. Cooper and Bellmont know how to dig..."
—Pop Matters

[If] “and you just want to crawl under the covers and relive your youth with something sweet, check out Gael Fashingbauer Cooper and Brian Bellmont’s new book The Totally Sweet 90s.”
—Jen X ‘67

“It’s full of fun trivia and facts about all the games, toys, and pop culture that made the 1990s awesome.”
—How About We
