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??
If 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?
