The 80s were my jam. The best years of my life were spent growing up during this decade. Once I finally sat down and binged Stranger Things, I fell in love with all things 80s. We’re watching the premiere of Season 3 this week and planned out some fun Stranger Things to eat from the 80s. Need a viewing party menu? Consider adding some of these 80s era items to your list!
Stranger Things To Eat From The 80s
I loved the 80s so of course, I love how much Stranger Things embraces the decade.
True story: I didn’t watch the show for years, but recently was convinced to sit down and binge it.
Thanks, Tessa, for that nudge!
And if you know me, you know when I find something I love, I fall hard for it. So I’m all Stranger Things all the time right now. That’s how I fangirl!
We’re watching Stranger Things 3 today- all day- happy fourth of July for us!
