Children of the ’80s and ’90s, we have a treat for you this morning! Former host of Nickelodeon’s hit game show Double Dare, Marc Summers, will be joining us in studio this morning to talk about the golden age of Nickelodeon and being part of a show that helped define a generation.
In honor of his visit this morning, we decided to mix up a batch of the gooey, green slime that became synonymous with the show and part of Nickelodeon’s history forever.
For years, the ingredients of what made up that green slime has been kept under wraps, but in recent years, Marc himself gave a little insight to what really went into the slime kids of the 90s all dreamed of getting covered in.
Now the host of Food Network’s Unwrapped, Marc revealed to Gourmet Live that the base of the green slime was all just common food items most households have in their pantries.
“The base was vanilla pudding, applesauce, oatmeal, green food coloring, and by the third day, anything else that was on the obstacle course,” he told them.
So without further ado, here’s how to whip up your own batch of the famous Double Dare slime at home:
- Vanilla pudding
- Green food coloring
Make vanilla pudding according to package directions, as well as the oatmeal, and let cool. Mix pudding, oatmeal, applesauce in a large bowl and add in green food coloring until you get the desired color.
