OMG YES!! i drank that *all the time* I was just wondering the other day if they still make it or not!
I have not looked in ages. The new flavored waters are DISGUSTING, taste like fake sugar. I bought one by accident once and threw it away.
We have chocolate MaltOMeal here, I might even have a box in the cabinet. you can get it on wic here. I THINK Maypo is around too.
My grandma's friend watched me for a day once, took me grocery shopping, I remember I told her I was going to *DIE* right there in the *STORE* if I could not have some Strawberry Shortcake cereal.
(fast-forward 20-some-odd years and I have an almost 3 year old who would very likely say the same thing!
and there probably *is* SS cereal again, I don't know since I don't buy the sweet cereals. My kids in general don't know what they are and since they love plenty of other *ahem* crap, I'm not going to enlighten them anytime soon!
Chocolate footballs. My grandpa used to buy me these chocolate football candies.
And my grandma used to let me eat the extra chocolate stars when she made these cookies with chocolate stars on them....I want that recipe just so I can do it and let my kids eat the extra stars
The brownies in the chicken TV dinner.
DooDads. In the days before Chex Mix was available in the store, whenever we went on long car trips, my dad bought this snack mix in a box called Doodads. It really wasn't all that different from chex mix though, it even had the little wheat things.
The last time I went to the store I actuallly looked for Dakota Style (local brand) cheezy puffs and they were not there. They are *the best* cheezies, SO MUCH cheezy stuff. I am going to be IRATE if they quit making them.
Ben and Jerry's Rainforest Crunch. And the Oatmeal cookie dough. I ate the Oatmeal cookie dough all the time when I was pregnant with, it must have been DS1 and actually wrote a letter to BnJ complaining because I was on a major jones pg with DD and could NOT find it. (or maybe it disappeared while I was preg with DD...it just doesn't seem that long ago that it was not around at all when I was pg with her!)
actually quite honestly a lot of stuff i ate is around, I just don't buy it anymore because I recognize it for what it is--junk. (Toaster Strudels anyone?)
