I can still picture it like it was yesterday…
When I was a little kid and we lived in suburban Chicago, our mom would pile us in the car and take us ice skating at a rink a few towns over and Wednesday nights.
And after the ice skating…it was time to hit Taco Bell.
Now, we didn’t eat out very often, so going to Taco Bell was a HUGE deal and an enormous treat. And I still like it!
The 1980s and 1990s were a great time for fast food restaurants and people took to Twitter to take about those glory days after posts about how Wendy’s used to have a yellow color scheme…and things took off from there.
Let’s take a look!
1. Burger King kid’s club!
That was some good stuff.

I wonder if they’re worth any money…

8. Whoa, I don’t remember these.
Gonna have to get on eBay tonight…
My only contribution to today's "Yellow Wendy's" burst of fast food nostalgia is that my parents still have all four of these. pic.twitter.com/NqDe5I8q8U

They were quite tasty, as I recall.
