Looney Tunes fans call for return of discontinued treat from ‘golden age of snacks’ that many ‘lived on’ as kids

LOONEY Tunes fans are demanding the return of their favorite discontinued afternoon snack that hasn’t sat on the shelves in over twenty years.

In the 1990s, young children and cartoon fans would often see their favorite TV series characters on the sides of fruit snack boxes at their local grocery stores.

Popular snacks included Scooby-Doo, Bugs Bunny, Donkey Kong and the iconic Tasmanian Devil.

For the past few weeks, Looney Tunes fans have been reminiscing about the after-school treats, with one Twitter account dedicating a post to Tasmanian Devil Fruit Snacks.

Manufactured by General Mills, gummy bears came in a variety of flavors, including strawberry, grape, orange, and cherry.

They came in a variety of shapes including a hurricane, the face of the Tasmanian devil and the word “Taz”.

Discontinued Foods (@snack_memories) regularly publishes posts on premium foods and snacks that are no longer available for purchase.

“Tasmanian Devil Fruit Snacks (1993-1995): After reviving his popularity thanks to the animated series “Taz-Mania”, the classic Looney Tunes character received his own line of fruit snacks in the shape of his face, his spinning “tornado”, and the word ‘Taz’,” the report Postedshare a picture of the nostalgic box.

Several fans raved about the treat in response to the post, recalling its delicious taste.

“OH JESUS, I’ve lived on this. I was really deep in Tazmania,” wrote one Twitter user.

“Oh those were good,” said another.

“The ’90s were the golden age of fruit snacks,” added a third.

“I remember the tornadoes were really good,” wrote another.

It’s unclear if General Mills has plans to bring the favorite snack back.

The company did not immediately respond to The US Sun’s request for comment.

General Mills is responsible for a line of popular sweet treats for children across the country.

Unfortunately, not all of them stay on the shelf for years, so many think back nostalgically to the snacks from their childhood.

One of the favorites was the Fruit Roll-Up Stackerz, which weren’t a single sheet, but small circular pieces.
