Batang 90s (even the 80s and 2000s) are blessed with snacks that were born during the past decades ago. Although a few of these were gone or became rare in the market, some of these food are still available today.
Here's a list of candies, sweet and chewy treats Batang 90s once loved:
Ricoa’s Curly Tops & Flat Tops
|Curly Tops & Flat Tops|
Flat Tops and Curly Tops were both created by the same company. Taste wise, they both tastes the same and the only difference is that Flat Tops have flat top surface, while Curly Tops have curly ridges and a small swirl on the top. Curly Tops can only be bought in a box and cannot be retailed per piece like Flat Tops. ORDER A PACK OF FLAT TOPS & CURLY TOPS HERE
|Haw Haw Milk Candy|
Haw Haw is a sweet milk-flavored candy with a smooth-like texture wrapped in its iconic mint green and white packaging. It's eaten like a lollipop wherein you slowly savor its rich and creamy taste. Haw Haw is the true definition of how Pinoy milk candy tastes like! ORDER A PACK OF HAW HAW HERE
LOOKING FOR KITCHEN OR DINING NEEDS?
Here are the best options to shop for your kitchenware and dining essentials:
Cloud 9 Chocolate Bar
Cloud 9 is more like a pinoy counterpart of Sneakers. Cloud 9 is a delectable chocolate bar produced by Jack ‘n Jill and is one of the most famous chocolate snacks in the country.
|Cloud 9 Chocolate Bar|
The chocolate bar has been a favorite of Pinoys, with its familiar layers of creamy caramel, soft nougat, and crunchy peanuts covered by a thick coating of rich, milk chocolate. Today, Cloud 9 is now available in various flavors including the Salted Caramel, Overload and more. ORDER A PACK OF CLOUD 9 HERE
Before Potchi was even conceptualized, we had Orange Swits, the purveyor of local sugar-coated jelly treats in the country. Better brush your teeth after, though. They’re a little clingy. ORDER A PACK OF ORANGE SWITS HERE
|White Rabbit Candy|
If you grew up in the '80s or '90s, chances are, you enjoyed many a piece of the milk candy known as White Rabbit. With its nostalgic white, blue, and red packaging, the Chinese candy holds a special place in the memory of many Filipinos. ORDER A PACK OF WHITE RABBIT HERE
Kendi Mint candy is one of the classic hard candies from the Philippines, evoking nostalgic memories in Filipinos of all ages. In fairness to this candy, it doesn’t changed a bit! It still has the same packaging, the same logo and is still manufactured by the same company Candyman Inc. ORDER A PACK OF KENDI MINT HERE
Viva Caramel Candy
|Viva Caramel Candy|
Viva Caramel is essentially hard caramel-flavored candy wrapped around soft chocolate paste. The hard caramel has more of a buttery taste, while the soft inside has more of a rough cocoa taste to it. Interestingly, Vi-Va (possibly a term taken from two names) candy is manufactured by Candyman Inc, the same company behind Kendi Mint. ORDER A PACK OF VIVA CARAMEL HERE

|Annie’s Ube & Langka|
Another classic pinoy treat is the chew pastillas Annie’s Langka and Annie’s Ube. Langka and Ube-langka candies are products by the Annie Candy Manufacturing in Imus, Cavite.

Frutos Soft Chewy Candy
Frutos is more likely to be considered as our cheaper counterpart to Fruitella or Sugus. Frutos are available in many different flavors and the covers will vary depending on it. Interestingly, Frutos is still available in its classic packaging but they also come up with special flavors with special foil packages. ORDER A PACK OF FRUTOS HERE
Mik-Mik Milk Powder
|Mik-Mik Milk Powder|
Amusingly enough, the fine white grains of milk remind us of a different, more notorious white powder and the effects are similar too: an addicting type of sweet bliss that’ll make you oblivious to the rest of the cruel world. You won’t even realize that you’ve gone through a whole packet, too. No to drugs, yes to Mik-Mik. ORDER A PACK OF MIK-MIK HERE

Choc Nut is a trademark for a candy bar manufactured by Annie's Sweets Manufacturing and Packaging Corporation, a Philippine-based company.

Nothing like a good old name change to turn things around. The formerly popular menthol candy once ran circles around the competition with its refreshing blast of mouth-to-throat mintiness. Several years later, Storck was revived as Starr but still featuring that same good-feeling mintiness inside the same green packaging. ORDER A PACK OF STARR HERE
Peter's Butter Ball

Jack N Jill Chocolate Pretzels
|Jack N Jill Chocolate Pretzels|
In the Philippines, we have a different pretzel. The crispy pretzels are covered in rich chocolate and is more like a cheaper version of Pocky.
