Totally Sweet 90's

"It's not a toomah." - If that phrase means anything to you, pick up a copy of The Totally Sweet 90s: From Clear Cola to Furby, and Grunge to Whatever: The Toys, Tastes, and Trends That Defined a Decade by Gael Fashingbauer Cooper and Brian Bellmont. The book lists, in alphabetical order, things that will help jog your memory of living in the 90s. It also lists a status for each item (Jerry Springer is still on and has over 3600 episodes), and a fun fact, (Lisa Frank is a real person and her children are named Hunter Green and Forrest Green).

It was a lot of fun to be reminded of my favorite Nickelodeon shows and how much clear cola I drank. Overall I was able to "remember" most items listed, though it did list more than its fair share of Saturday Night Live skits. I think this book would be perfect to read with friends while discussing your favorite memories; entries are broad enough so those who came of age in the 90s and well as those born in the 90s will find something to bring a smile to their face.
