Fruitopia was a brand of fruit-flavored beverages introduced by The Coca-Cola Company in the early 1990s. It is not longer available in the U.S.  However, after some research, it seems to available in Canada in juice box form.

Crystal Pepsi was a clear cola soft drink introduced by PepsiCo in the early 1990s. It was essentially a caffeine-free, colorless version of traditional Pepsi, and and it was discontinued in the mid-90s.

Kudos Granola Bars were a popular snack product introduced by Mars, in the 1990s. It was at one time my go-to snack.  These granola bars were known for their sweet and crunchy texture held together with a layer of caramel or chocolate.

Orbitz Drinks were a unique and short-lived beverage product introduced by The Clearly Food & Beverage Company in the mid-90s. These drinks were known for their distinctive appearance, featuring a clear, gel-like liquid filled with colorful edible balls floating within the bottle. Kind of a soda boba!

Waffle Crisp Cereal was a breakfast cereal produced by Post. It was known for its small, waffle-shaped cereal pieces that resembled miniature waffles. By popular demand it is back!

Rice Krispies Treats Cereal was a breakfast cereal that was a spin-off of the popular Rice Krispies Cereal, made by mixing Rice Krispies with melted marshmallows and butter. It is still available!
