The 80s were a great decade to grow up in. Anyone who lived through the 80s probably has their own favorite pop culture memories. You would have lived through the Cola Wars between Pepsi and Coke, which at one point prompted Coke to famously change their formula and come out with New Coke.
If you had to have the latest in electronics in the 80s, than you probably had a Betamax to watch the Star Wars sequels on. If you were going to have a alcoholic beverage with your movie than it would probably have been a wine cooler, which were huge in the 80s. For Lunch you might have "kept your cool side cool,and your hot side hot" with McDonald's McDLT. To get there you might have driven your discount Yugo car that was manufactured in Yugoslavia.
Other Pop Culture Memories from the 80s:
If you were a kid in the 80s than you probably spent your leisure time at the arcade pumping quarters into the Pac-Man machine, or if you were lucky you were playing at home on your Atari 2600 Video Game System. You also probably had a Simon game at home, where you had to watch a series of blinking and beeping lights and then repeat the pattern. Boys in the 80s would play with their Star Wars Action Figures and trade their Garbage Pail Kids cards, while the girls had their Cabbage Patch Kids and My Little Pony dolls.
