54. Nerds – Who will ever forget this classic treat? Nerds is one of the most iconic candies from the 80s not just here in the Philippines but world wide. Nerds consist of various flavors and colors, ranging from extremely sweet to extremely sour; often, the two flavours in one box will contrast, and a single flavor may even exhibit both extremes. You can also buy smaller boxes with single flavor.
55. Zeb- Zeb Corn Puff – Zeb Zeb is definitely one of the classic pinoy snack that will bring much of your childhood memories. Defined by its classic yellow packaging with the famous white and green striped zebra (hence the name) with a blue tail , Zeb Zeb is one of the snacks that kids from 90s used to enjoy! The improved version has softer corn puffs and the cheese flavor is much noticeable.
56. Pompoms Cheese Flavored Curls – Another classic pinoy snack from the 80’s that we can still enjoy today is Pompoms. Dubbed as the “poor man’s Cheese Curls”, Pompoms is one of the few old-timers still available today. This salty but yummy Pinoy chicheria reminds us of those carefree days of watching afternoon kiddie shows.
57. Softee Chewy Candies – Softee’s profile may not be as huge as Frutos but you can safely say that it is a lighter version of Frutella and Sugus. It is more chewy, less sweeter yet richly flavored candy. It comes up with various flavor such as Lemon, Strawberry, Pineapple and Orange. Softee is still available today in their classic packaging notable for its less vibrant colors.
58. Mony Mony Powdered Milk – I was quite surprised to see this old school powdered milk snack! Mony Mony is notable for its unique packaging. The powdered milk is placed in cute colorful bottles that resemble a miniature baby feeding bottle.
59. Peter’s Butter Ball – Butter Ball is definitely one of the classic pinoy candies that will bring so much of your childhood memories. The candy is well known for its butterscotch-y goodness. Peter’s Butterball is still available today and it is very interesting to note that they still got their original packaging notable for its simple creamy brown packets adorned with orange stripes.
