Sunkist made these little fruit chews. The originals were the best before they became real chewy. They even sold grape or strawberry in their own packs!

These were great! They tasted just like grape juice and had the best waxy consistancy. This was before moms really bought their kids fruit snacks. If you could talk her into buying you these your were singing all the way home from the store.

Aaron Neville always looked like he had a fun fruit stuck to his cheek...

I used to carry these with me on bike rides with my friends. We would play superheroes and these were our "power pellets".

Me and my friend would use the fun fruits with the board game Frogger. Whenever you landed on a fly, you got to eat a fun fruit!

Fun Fruits, Quackers, and Fruit Wrinkles were my favorite snacks growing up. (Nehi Peach was my favorite drink)

OMG, I loved Fun Fruits. I need some right now! My sister and I used to put them on our nails as "Lee's Press-on Nails" (LOL) and then eat them. LMAO @ the Aaron Neville comment! Remember the yogurt covered ones? Mmm mmm

When I look back on my childhood, I'm kind of vaguely horrified about how many of the snacks I ate had absolutely no redeeming nutritional value at all, and most of the ones with the word "fruit" in the name had little if any fruit. I also can't help being nostalgic about them, though, because they were so good! I used to take them out on bike rides, too, and eat them while riding around the neighbourhood. (And I think I made up a game where they had some kind of magic power, but I can't really remember what it was...)

oh, it's so satisfying to know I'm not crazy. No one else in my family remembers the yogurt covered ones. I miss them so much!

These were the best part of my lunch at school, every day. The ones in the goofy shapes had a different texture that were never as good as the plain, original, pellets. And, yes, the Yogurt Supremes were awesome.

I miss the original fruit pellets sooo much. Please bring them back. The snacks they have now are gross. My friends and I always had them after play time outside, this was over 20years ago. I would buy them for my kids today if they made them still :-(

Fun Fruits Were Actually Made By Heidi Co. (Makekers Of Jujifruits and jujubees). My Father Worked For Them And Brought Home 2 10 Lb Bags Of Them. I Used To Puthandfuls InA Ziploc For School Each Day. So Freakin Yummy.

We're talking about the Sunkist ones which came out in 86 or 87 and were available in cherry, strawberry, grape, and orange

I've been searching and searching for my childhood favorite food... Soo sad they don't make them anymore :( :( BRING THEM BACK!! Gushers are the closes things I've found but nothing like the original fun fruit. Forget all those fruit funnies out there now - way too bland!

Those were PLENTY OF TASTY 😋 Like jellybeans but with a bolder flavor, a fruity taste that knocked you sideways with its fruitiness
