10. Bubble Tape. We all know there is only one right way to eat Bubble Tape.

Here at The Buzz we actually have 5 different kinds of Bubble Tape. Check them out Here.
11. Mamba. These were HUGE for middle schoolers back in the early 2000’s along with Now and Laters which we also have! These fruit chews burst with flavor, 4 different ones to be exact. Strawberry, raspberry, lemon, and orange. Get some Here.
12. Runts. This candy has been very interesting. The green runt has changed flavor about three times so you never really know what it is.

And if you just want Bananarama we’ve got it Here.
