Praise for Whatever Happened to Pudding Pops

"A great nostalgia-inducing gift for fellow members of Generation X."
—Richmond (VA) Times-Dispatch


"With entries like 'John Hughes Movies,' 'Judy Blume Books,' 'Love’s Baby Soft' and 'Pen Pals,' it’s hard not to go into a state of nostalgic euphoria while reading Whatever Happened to Pudding Pops?"
—The Weekender, Wilkes-Barre, PA



"Gael Fashingbauer Cooper and Brian Bellmont are two people who obviously lived through and loved the '70s and '80s. They're funny and sharp, and their passion for pop jumps off the page."

—Whitney Matheson, USA Today Pop Candy




"A pop culture flashback"
—Jen Chaney, The Washington Post


"I was reading this book the other night and just howling at some of these entries."
—Rachel Martin, "All Things Considered," National Public Radio

"...filled with nostalgia memory bombs that will apparently make you want to 'throw your ponytail into a scrunchie and take a swig from your can of Surge.'"
—The Huffington Post

"The language is snappy, the pace brisk, and the research impressive. Cooper and Bellmont know how to dig..."
—Pop Matters

[If] “and you just want to crawl under the covers and relive your youth with something sweet, check out Gael Fashingbauer Cooper and Brian Bellmont’s new book The Totally Sweet 90s.”

Présentation de l'éditeur

If you can tell the difference between the Petes in Pete & Pete, know every step to the Macarena by heart, and remember when The Real World was about more than just drunken hookups, The Totally Sweet ’90s will be a welcome trip down memory lane.

With this hella cool guide, you’ll reminisce about that glorious decade when Beanie Babies seemed like a smart economic investment and Kris Kross had you wearing your pants backward. Whether you contracted dysentery on the Oregon Trail or longed to attend Janet Reno’s Dance Party, you’ll get a kick out of seeing which toys, treats, and trends stayed around, and which flopped.

So throw your ponytail into a scrunchie, take a swig from your can of Surge, and join us on this ride through the unforgettable (and sometimes unforgivable) trends of the ’90s.

Remembering the '90s! 7 juin 2013
Par Michael OConnor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
What can you say about a decade that produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, PalmPilots, FARGO, the Ebola virus, CALVIN AND HOBBES, Jerry Springer, the McRib sandwich, Beanie Babies, Jell-o Jigglers, THE X-FILES, Nerf Guns, Thomas Kinkade art, the Spice Girls, Clear Colas and the George Foreman Grill? How about - Whatever!?! Gael Cooper and Brian Bellmont take the reader down memory lane in THE TOTALLY SWEET '90s, a 2013 Penguin Book release.

Cooper and Bellmont dish up the details on 190 "unforgettable and sometimes unforgivable...toys, tastes and trends that defined a decade." As might be expected, paging through TOTALLY SWEET '90S alternately produces laughs and groans at being reminded of Zima, Spuds Mackenize, the Macarena, Cassette Tapes, the Olsen twins, WHERE'S WALDO, Bungee Jumping, Fax Machines, FRIENDS, Jim Carrey, Roller Shoes, Grunge, BLUE'S CLUES, Tickle Me Elmo, Inline Skates, Bubble Tape, Troll Dolls and Martha Stewart. Yet, the tone of the book is affectionate and the authors treat their material with humor and insight.

Pop culture fans and trivia buffs will enjoy TOTALLY SWEET '90S. It will bring back some good memories and maybe some bad ones but, all in all, it's a fun trip. Recommended.

The 90s Were Totally Sweet 2 août 2013
Par Rebecca L. Elson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This review originally appeared on The Magical Buffet website on 08/01/13.

When I was given the chance to review "The Totally Sweet `90s: From Clear Cola to Furby and Grunge to `Whatever,' the Toys, Tastes, and Trends That Defined a Decade" I thought, sure the 90s were fun but do we really need a book devoted to them? I mean, it's so recent. Then it hit me. The 90s were actually quite a while ago. You know, I graduated from high school in the mid-nineties. You know what else? I'm getting seriously old. What the hell universe?

Where was I? Oh yeah, "The Totally Sweet `90s". Holy crap there was a lot of stuff that happened in the nineties and authors Gael Fashingbauer Cooper and Brian Bellmont manage to squeeze it all in to one book! Each entry includes a status to let you know what's going on with it now and also a fun fact. But I know what you're thinking, Rebecca, what's in that fun little book that you'll share?

Hmmmm, shall it be Pogs? Or perhaps "Clarissa Explains it All"? Maybe Zima? Possibly "The Adventures of Pete and Pete"? However, I've chosen perhaps my favorite thing......that's right readers, "Pop Up Video".

"The 1990s were all about multitasking, and music videos were no exception. Why just veg out in front of an ordinary video when you could watch a video paired with "Beavis and Butt-Head" commentary or one adorned with "Pop Up Video's" cartoony word bubbles?

The best pop-ups told you something hilarious like one on a Rick Astley video pointing out a dancer who never learned the steps, or confiding that the director and producer had a two-hour fight about whether Astley should roll up his sleeves. Awesomely, the writers of the pop-ups seemed to have the same bemused contempt for the music industry as the rest of us, never failing to point out where the producers cheaped out on a set or the singer was replaced with a stand in.

Watching "Pop Up Video" was like kicking back with your friend with your friend who worked as the third director's assistant and letting him dish about the scene where Meat Loaf fell off his chair or snark that Dexys Midnight Runners fired their drummer midway through the shoot. The pop-ups were like musical footnotes, but footnotes that were more often entertaining than the real text.

Status: "Pop Up Video" popped off the air for a time in 2002 but was revived by VH1 in 2011.

Fun Fact: "Pop Up Brady" gave the pop up treatment to old "Brady Bunch" episodes. One pop-up on the famed Kings' Island episode claims Robert Reed saved the cast's life by spotting a poorly mounted camera that would have flown off a roller coaster and possibly killed the actors."

With concise, but entertaining write ups, that include updates on where they are now and tidbits of trivia; "The Totally Sweet 90s" is a great party book. An amusing stroll down memory lane, reminding us of the good ("Clerks"), the bad ("Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), and the ugly (Gak).

Ahh, the Memories! 15 mai 2014

Another great job by Gael Fashingbauer Cooper! Though I'm more of an 80's kid and identified more with the previous book ( "Whatever Happened to Pudding Pops?") , this book brought back a lot of memories from high school. The writing style is perfectly worded and hilarious, basically describing things the exact way many of us would. I really wish the authors would come out with two or three more books per each decade (80's and 90's), as there was so, so much to remember and limited space in each book.

I enjoyed "Whatever Happened to Pudding Pops", the other book in this series so much I had to get this one too. Because of my age I related a bit more to the previous book, but still got a lot of fun out of Totally Sweet 90s, memories and laughs, good book to share with others.
Are the 90s Worth Remembering? 19 avril 2015
Par DACHokie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Unlike other historical eras, the 20th century is mostly defined in decades. Whether it be the “roaring” 20s, the war-ravaged 40s or turbulent 60s, each 10 year cycle seemed to leave a definitive cultural footprint on the path of (American) life. I admit that I’m partial to the decades of my childhood/college years (70s and 80s) and still maintain a historical interest in previous decades, but, I simply can’t stand the 90s. THE TOTALLY SWEET 90s, while humorous and informative, seemed to validate my negative sentiment of a decade where style firmly overtook substance on almost every level (a trend that started in the 80s).

THE TOTALLY SWEET 90s is an A-to-Z encyclopedia that covers a myriad of iconic toys, foods, clothes and entertainment that defined a decade probably more memorable for its projected doomsday ending (Y2K) than the preceding 10 years. Each entry consists of a brief description in which the authors inject their own sarcastic take on the subject matter, followed by a current-day status update and an informative fun fact. The authors have provided a nicely organized 1990s time-capsule with plenty of research and several photos to jog your memories. I must credit the effort in developing such a comprehensive list that includes many forgotten/obscure items (Surge Soda and Gak) on top of the obvious (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). As expected, there will be those disappointed in the exclusion of some 90s-related item that only a handful of people care to remember, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a more comprehensive list (for crying out loud, even the “It’s Pat” movie is mentioned in the book). I do wish each and every entry included a photo.

Even though I enjoyed the light-hearted trip down memory lane, the ongoing list of mindless techno-junk (Tamagotchi and Furby), completely unnecessary food experiments (Doritos 3-D), music (“Macerena”) and fads (Beanie Babies) started to annoy as well as rationalize my disdain for the 90s. I was reminded me how mindless things started to get; when things began to matter more than people. A decade defined by “Riverdance”, Jim Carrey, the Spice Girls and Zubaz is something I’d rather forget. Sure, the decade wasn’t all bad, after all it did deliver “Seinfeld” and Snapple, but those gems are buried in a mountain of sludge that includes “MMMBop”, the Ebola Virus, OJ and the “boxers or briefs” debate.

While the 90s weren’t memorable for me, I find THE TOTALLY SWEET 90s to be a nice resource documenting that moment in time … for better or for worse.
