Netflix’s latest hit Stranger Things has people binge-watching the 80s supernatural drama, but they didn’t know it would make some of us super nostalgic for the decade’s popular canned pudding.
If you’re too young to remember, the 1980s were full of now-iconic things like fanny packs, big hair and jelly shoes. The show does an amazing job of capturing the decade down to the very last detail – Hunt’s Snack Pack chocolate puddings.
While holed up in a school, two of the main characters Lucas and Dustin find a fridge full of the canned dessert.
Fans loved the throwback canned pudding and have been asking Hunt’s to bring back the old-school packaging. Of course it was changed because kids kept cutting themselves on the cans, so maybe today’s plastic packaging is fine.
If you haven’t started watching the show, what are you waiting for? It has so much to offer including Winona Ryder nailing her character’s complex nuances.
“There’s a line in the show where someone says [of her Stranger Things character], ‘She’s had anxiety problems in the past.’ A lot of people picked up on that, like, ‘Oh, you know, she’s crazy.’ And I’m like, ‘Okay, wait a second, she’s struggling.’ Two kids, deadbeat dad, working her ass off. Who wouldn’t be anxious?” she told New York Magazine.
