There’s nothing that takes you back to your childhood more than the nostalgia of adverts – other than maybe eating a cheesestring or playing on a Tamagotchi.
Because as a kid, being able to quote or sing along to the most popular ads on TV made us seem *really* cool, right? (No? Well, this is awkward … )
We thought we’d take a trip back down memory lane and search out some of the biggest adverts from the ’90s and noughties. Keep an open mind – some might not seem quite as polished as you remembered them being – and you’re in for a treat.
1. McCain chips
Yeah, we’d have gone with chips too – food over family members every time.
2. Jaffa cakes
If you don’t still do “half moon, full moon, total eclipse” when you eat jaffa cakes are you even a ’90s kid?
3. Accrington Stanley Milk advert
It was recently recreated using vodka it’s that good an advert.
We probably thought it as a kid and we definitely think it now … why the giant belly? Why?!
Have you had your Weetabix?
This is probably the best use of a song out of the lot. And it’s now going to be in our heads all day long …
7. Club biscuits
One of those adverts we’d totally forgotten about … there are not enough Club biscuits in our lives today.
Are you team orange or team mint though?
You know when you’ve been tangoed … but well, there’s no denying this advert is a little bizarre.
9. Kellogs Corn Pops
We have two questions. 1. What on earth happened to Corn Pops? 2. Why does this music sound like we’re in a club?
10. Opal Fruits/Starburst
Chosen because of all the drama the name-changing caused … Let’s all take a moment to remember Opal Fruit. R.I.P.
All together now: P-P-Pick up a penguin.
Alright, we were getting on a bit by the time this advert was on our screens, but it can’t be missed out because everyone at school was talking about it. Genius.
13. John West salmon
“Look! An eagle!”
Surely you remember this chocolate rollercoaster …
15. John Smith
How was that for a trip down memory lane?
