The ’90s Were The Sweetest Decade

Scatter Seeds Of Kindness



If you have a friend worth loving
Love him. Yes, and let him know
That you love him, ere life's evening
Tinge his brow with sunset glow
Why should good words ne'er be said
Of a friend till he is dead?

If you hear a song that thrills you
Sung by any child of song
Praise it. Do not let the singer
Wait deserved praises long
Why should one who thrills your heart
Lack the joy you may impart?

If you hear a prayer that moves you
By its humble, pleading tone
Join it. Do not let the seeker
Bow before his God alone
Why should not thy brother share
The strength of ‘two or three' in prayer?

If your work is made more easy
By a friendly, helping hand
Say so. Speak out brave and truly
Ere the darkness veil the land
Should a brother workman dear
Falter for a word of cheer?

Scatter thus your seeds of kindness
All enriching as you go
Leave them. Trust the Harvest-Giver
He will make each seed to grow
So, until the happy end
Your life shall never lack a friend

Sometimes, all we want is just to go back to the good old days when our biggest worry was to feed our beloved electronic pet Tamagotchi, to when the Fresh Prince was the king, and to when candy was sour, sweet, and simple.

 

We’ve got endless reasons to be proud to be ’90s children, but the sweetest without a doubt was to be found in the candy aisle (and hidden in our night table drawer).  First off, let’s talk about the fact that we had Hubba Bubba Tape, that completely took America by storm and was the first novelty tape.

 

Then there were Warheads, which offered both an epic shock factor and an unbeatable tangy.  We also had the legendary Pixy Stix, which adults never seemed to understand, but we were sure pleased with our flavored sugar packs.

 

When it comes to Nerds, we’re not sure even today how they got their name, but nonetheless, it never stopped us from chugging them down.  Airheads also stole our hearts with legendary flavors such as cherry, watermelon and soul apple. Although we all know that White Mystery was always number one.

 

Despite being too young to get engaged, we always had Ring Pops there for us to help us at least dream.

 

Basically, there’s no debate here – the ’90s were unarguably the sweetest decade of all time.
