People Are Reminiscing About Their Old School Lunch Boxes From The 90s
It's September (believe it or not), kids are all back in school and us adults over here are getting nostalgic about our own back to school preparation.
Remember the week before you were due to return, you'd go shopping for the 'good stuff'. The uniform was the boring bit that you didn't really care about - the main event was the pencil case, school bag and, very importantly, lunch box shop.
There were so many stacked up along the aisles. The crucial element was all in the exterior - were you going to go for one of your favourite films like Jurassic Park or Aladdin? Maybe you'd choose your favourite band such as the Spice Girls or S Club 7. There were just too many options.
Now, 90s kids all over are reminiscing about what lunch box (or bag) they had, gloating about whether it had a matching bottle - because that was another crucial deciding factor.

A woman called Melissa took to Twitter to share a photograph of her 90s lunch box which was Forever Friends - strong choice, Melissa.
She also opened the conversation up asking what everyone else chose back in the day and the response has got us all nostalgic.
One person responded: "YES, I had this one! I also had a Barbie love heart one and when I got my first boyfriend aged ~seven, we used to say "I packedlunchbox you". Secret codes. I'm sure everyone was fooled."
My mum used to whine about the plastic ones not keeping cool enough so I had this snazzy thing for years. Bring back Bang On The Door :joy: pic.twitter.com/8P0UxqQPe8

Another strong option was Garfield and, when someone boastfully tweeted that they had it, another replied: "Oh I'm so jealous! That's the one I wanted. I was a British kid at a Canadian school on an American army base. Everyone had these. I think I might have had the flask by the end of my time there. So cool."
The reminiscing got one person a little riled, she wrote: "Mine was Thomas the Tank. So was Brian's - f**king Brian; he KNEW which was which and STILL tried to take mine and pretend it was his, because he'd picked half his sticker off. I HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN BRIAN."
We could totally bring this back. I'm going to rock up on Monday with my brand spanking new Peaky Blinders lunchbox and my next will be Game of Thrones. You saw it here first.
