Top Ten Foods that Have Changed Their Taste or Ingredients Since the 1980sYes I know your taste buds change over the years, but these products have factually changed their ingredients and quality (adding preservatives and other additives, moving from sugar to high fructose corn syrup, removing certain fats and lards, and using cheaper ingredients to cut production costs and increase profits) since the 80s.
They were a lot softer and practically melted in your mouth. Now they have a stale taste and weird texture. Also overly sweet now from the fructose. Pretty much all Hostess products are guilty of this and are gross to me now.
I heard that they taste very bland and sweet now.
I don't eat these anymore and I'm glad.
Anyone remember when they came wrapped in foil? Anyways, they use to have more "crunch" to them back then and now the chocolate seems to be of lower quality.
No, they're not the same, but they do have a lot of different kinds now, lemon, birthday cake, apple pie, raspberry cream, all of these are good.
That sad, I loved them
The move from sugar to high fructose corn syrup has made them sweeter.
Mexican Coke has real sugar.
A lot of companies moved from real maple and sugar to artificial maple flavoring and fructose. I won't eat it unless it's real maple syrup nowadays which costs about $10 for a small bottle. The artificial stuff is nasty.
I don't like oreo cookies anymore, and why would they ever make one with tide pod cream? that is just STUPID, I will never buy them.
Stale taste with less crunch and overly sweet now.
I don't eat these anymore, but I imagine they're one of the few that has probably improved. They moved from artificial cheese to real cheese.
Their cakes and donuts ingredients have been cheapened (hard, stale and overly sweet product) and they're not as good as they used to be.
I used to love the coffeecakes, but they don't have anything in them anymore, and yes all of their products are always stale.
The peanut butter is way different now. Cheap and generic tasting.
I loved geting reese cups for halloween, but sadly there are not good anymore.
I love this candy still but I don't think it uses real peanut butter
Use to taste "fresher". The preservatives and cheaper ingredients actually took away the fresh taste and again the fructose makes them too sweet.
Way too hard, they make my mouth bleed.
I loved this stuff, now it's horrible.
Even the logo is worse now. Anyways they taste less cheesy.
I think they are still good.
Who even likes this crap? it's not even good! it tastes like cough medicine.
Too sweet and tastes like the generic brands now. Probably the cheap ingredients and preservatives.
I added this because it just doesn't taste the same anymore I think it's because it's not tree ripe anymore, they don't really have taste or even juice anymore, apple's, plum's, pineapple's, grape's, I miss good fresh fruit.
I used to love this on christmas morning, now they taste awful, and they need more iceing.
