Quick, what are the first three things that pop into your head when I say the words “Pizza Hut?” For me, it’s wholesome evenings out with my family, thick crust pizza, and those massive iron pans that they used to bring pizzas out in. However, the Pizza Hut from yesteryear now only exists in our memories and photos.

Ricky Cobb, the founder of the Super 70s Sports Twitter account, created a viral thread about Pizza Hut nostalgia. The thread got more than 95.2k likes and over 20.9k retweets and people shared their own memories about what the pizza chain used to be like.

We’ve collected some of the most nostalgic memories about Pizza Hut, dear Pandas, so enjoy it while it’s piping hot and fresh. Scroll down, upvote your fave pics, and let us know what you miss about Pizza Hut. Oh, and when you’re done, have a look through Bored Panda’s list about McDonald’s nostalgia from the ‘80s and ‘90s right here.

From the exterior and interior to the glassware, children’s literacy programs, and the price of the food, Pizza Hut used to be an entirely different beast. Or, as one Twitter user put it, “To some, it was just a Pizza Hut, but to us, it was a Pizza Home.”

Staying relevant in the world of pizza is a nonstop battle. According to CNN, pizza-lovers tend to flock to whatever restaurant has the best promotions. So to stay in the game you have to make changes. Even to the things that you love.

One teeny example: Pizza Hut announced in 2019 that after 3 years of research and development, it changed its pan pizzas for the first time in 40 years.

The crushed ice was the best part. When I think of Pizza Hut from my childhood, I think of the slushie ice.

In a previous interview with Bored Panda, Ricky, the founder of Super 70s Sports, told us that he started the Twitter feed more than 5 years ago as a hobby.

“Figured I’d try to entertain my friends and make some new ones. It has been an incredible experience. I’ve always loved comedy, sports, and nostalgia. I thought some other folks might too. But I never would’ve thought over 300,000 followers was realistic,” he said. Ricky’s account is now closer to 400k followers than 300k and the number of fans keeps growing.

According to Ricky, he wanted to blend his love of nostalgia, comedy, pop culture, and nostalgia in one place where people can “share some laughs, interact, and enjoy a sense of community.”

It does seem that an emphasis on aesthetics has been lost over time and you can apply it to nearly anything. Remember when cars were actually beautiful or cool? Now everything is the same.
