Chubby Bunny (1999)
Some of these fads are just so completely perplexing that you can’t figure out how they got started in the first place. Specifically, “Chubby Bunny,” which became popular in the late 1990s. It’s a game where each player has to stuff marshmallows in their mouth and say the phrase “Chubby Bunny” without swallowing, chewing or spitting them out. In 1999, a group of girls playing the game at Chicago’s Hoffman Elementary watched in horror as 12-year-old Catherine Fish choked to death on four marshmallows while playing. What an awful way to go.
