Snack attack flashback

For reasons unknown to me, yesterday while packing I had a memory flashback of two of my favorite things to eat when I was but a wee child growing up in the 80’s. Actually, I probably do know why they popped into my mind…my entire childhood was practically spent packing and moving. No wonder I was having flashbacks of random things.

Anyway, does anyone remember these??

I loved these cookies and begged my mom to buy them for me. What kid wouldn’t love cookies with laughing little faces on them?? Plus, there were prizes inside! Ah, the good old days where you got cool prizes in your cereal boxes. My favorite prize of all time was a multicolored crayon thing. It was long and had individual layers of colors. C’mon, I’m not the only one who loved these, am I? I searched for a picture of what I’m remembering but couldn’t find one. This is the closest I could find…

Man, I love crayons.

And remember this cereal??

 

kaboomIf you’re family was a hippie, organic-eating-only family, you-got-Lucky-Charms-only-on-your-birthday-and-in-your-stocking, (sad!) then you for sure wouldn’t find these in your cabinet. But in my house, sugared cereal ran supreme. And these fun, brightly colored circus-shaped marshmallow bits were my fave. He’s proof that clowns don’t have to be scary. They can be delicious.

Anyone else have any favorites from their childhood?

Who can forget Kaboom! I was in Big Lots about six months ago and they had boxes of Kaboom. I bought one (no telling how old it was) just for ol' times sake. When I was little, my brother shoved Kaboom up his nose and I had to extract it. Good times...

Packing and moving your whole childhood? Why? Sounds like my life...so sad...

That cereal looks pretty intense, as do those giggle cookies...any good in milk?

Loved Kaboom...even though I probably ate it many moons before you! Boo-beery was one of my favs too. I see it once in a while (around Halloween and HAVE to feed that memory)! Gotta go see if I can find some now!

***Remind me to tell you my cereal anti-prize prize story sometime***

Did you know that you can make those multi-colored crayons??? If you want to know how, message me on FB and I'll tell ya!

I'll back you up a decade to the 70s. Beans and Franks from Campbells were a lunch staple -- and Spoon Candy from Jello! Loved that! Why did they ever stop making it???
