Quiz: Do You Remember These School Cafeteria Lunches from the ‘80s and ‘90s?
Ah, remember those school cafeteria lunch menus that were sent home? The ones that determined how many lunches mom needed to pack this week?
With back-to-school season sneaking up, we started feeling just a little nostalgic for those cafeteria classics. (And who ever thought we’d say that?)
See how many of these classics from the ‘80s and ‘90s that you remember — or, heck, maybe even count the ones you still see today on your kiddo’s school lunch menu!
Rectangular Pizza - Arguably the safest option on the menu, no one packed lunch on rectangular pizza day.
Mixed Fruit Cup - The old faithful fruit cup was a common cameo in most cafeteria lunches, but somehow, we never got sick of it.
Nachos with Cheese - Can anyone really believe nachos with cheese was considered a lunch entree?
PB&J - Ol’ faithful, there’s simply no substitute for the classic PB&J.
Milk in Cartons - Is grade school the last time you drank milk from cardboard?
Salisbury Steak - For when you were craving microwavable TV dinners at lunch, the Salisbury steak had you covered.
Chicken Nuggets - Is it just us, or did cafeteria chicken nuggets always sound better when you saw it on the menu than they actually tasted?
Fish Sticks - Were fish sticks the best? Of course not, but they were hard to mess up and just needed ketchup.
Sloppy Joes - For those who forgot their lunch or were feeling brave, everyone’s cafeteria had its unique version of Sloppy Joe.
Corn Dogs - Like nachos with cheese, it’s crazy to think this ballpark snack was at once considered a lunchtime entree.
Tater Tots - In my opinion, fries were better. But tots were always a popular option and a great bartering tool if you wanted to trade with kids who packed that day.
French Toast Sticks - Were French toast sticks, powdered sugar and syrup a healthy option for cafeteria school lunches? Of course not, but we never missed French toast stick day.
Bean and Cheese Burrito - Hey, some people liked these, and we aren’t here to judge.
