Remember when we could eat anything we wanted to and not feel gross about it?
Everyone has those foods that they ate growing up. Those foods that you came home to after a long day of school, or that you ate when you were sad or upset to cheer you up. We all may have had different foods or versions of foods, but nonetheless, here is a list of some that bring back great memories.
1. Mother's Frosted Animal Crackers
If you've never had these... I'm sorry but you didn't have a childhood. These aren't like any regular animal crackers - they're covered in pink or white frosting and topped with sprinkles. My friends and I still get giddy over buying these because of all the memories we had eating them as kids.
Ah, the classic Lunchables. I'm sure 1 in 5 kids would bring Lunchables to school. While they may not be the healthiest option, they were so much fun to "make your own food" and it was convenient for our parents. Honestly, I might go buy myself one right now – no shame.
3. Ants on a Log
I'm surprised as a kid that I wasn't grossed out eating these. Not only because it was fake ants on a log, but also because it was a combination of celery, peanut butter, and raisins... Regardless, they were tasty and always made for a great afternoon snack!
4. Girl Scout Cookies
I live for Girl Scout Cookies. Every year, my friends and I gear up for the new season and get excited to buy our box of cookies. However, most of this excitement stems from childhood memories – whether we sold them as kids, or bought them from our friends. A large part of my eagerness to buy them is because it has been a tradition since I was a child... plus it helps that they're so delicious!
5. Otterpops / Freeze pops
Otterpops are so iconic. I remember buying a huge box of them from Cosco every summer and my sister and I fighting over who got what color. They bring back so many good memories from summer breaks and I still love them today.
