Kids Taste Test Lunches From 1900 Through 2000, And We Watch Their Hilarious Reactions

"Nobody eats this. I eat what's trending."

What did you pack for lunch when you were a kid?

In a new video for Bon Appétit, kids taste test brown bag lunches from various decades throughout the 1900s until they land at a typical lunch in 2000. 

Throughout the video, the kids have very mixed reviews of the brown-bagged lunches, some of which feature spamwiches, pickles, Cheeze Wiz, bologna, and Twinkies. 

For example, the kids test a lunch reminiscent of the 1910s: some milk, an apple, a tomato sandwich, and pickles.

"It tastes like sadness," one boy says. "I think it's how they made hamburgers back then."

Later, after trying a 1950s-style lunch, complete with a meatloaf sandwich, potato salad, and Cheese Wiz, an interviewer asks one girl what she would say if her mom packed this lunch for her.

She responds:


"Thank you for the effort, but I'm not really into this kind of thing."

At least she's polite about it.
