Snacks

If Dubai was a car, it’d do 0-60 in less than three seconds.

It’s gone from a hazy, b in less than 20 years, and it seems set to continue to grow in ways still unimaginable.

Not enough appreciation is given to to the Dubai classics though – in this case, the classic snacks. Sure, your local Carrefour may stock the new jumbo Kit Kats, but a Kit Kat will never be a Pik-One. You’re yet to find a juice you like more than Areej, and you can’t understand why people would choose a bag of Lays over Chips Oman (fools).

So here’s a throwback for you to get you nostalgic about the snacks that ruled your childhood.

10 VINTAGE SNACKS THOSE WHO GREW UP IN DUBAI WILL REMEMBER…

1. Areej

Ah, Areej. The only cocktail you’ll ever need.

Snacks

2. Choki Choki Chocolate Paste

Ah, those were the days… when chocolate paste was eaten out of a tube and not scooped straight out of the jar with a teaspoon in bed on a Saturday afternoon.

Snacks

3. Unikai Strawberry Milk

Milk out of a carton will forever be better than milk out of a bottle. ‘Great look, great taste’.

Snacks

 4. Melody Pops

The best part about Melody Pops wasn’t eating them, it was proceeding to annoy everyone with the whistle inside for the next 20 minutes.

Snacks

5. Hobby Chocolate

The best (and the cheapest) nutty chocolate.

Snacks

6. Chips Oman

Named after the noise you make when eating them!

Snacks

7. Ice-Pops

We’re not sure what we preferred more. Eating it, or eating it and then sucking on the plastic wrapper for the next twenty minutes.

Snacks

8. Mr Krisps Cheez Balls

We’re still not sure why Mr Krisps is shaped like a cob of corn, but man he made it easy to get cheezy.

Snacks

9. Emirates Pofaki

Dubai’s take on cheese puffs (coming in packs of 25 so no one needs to be left out).

Snacks

10. Runts

Tasted so much like actual fruit you could convince your mum they gave you vitamins.
