A trip down memory food lane


One more reminiscin’ entry before I sign off for the weekend. If you are familiar with any of the food below, it’s probably because we share a culture, a generation, or a quirk. These are snacks I loved as a child. Each one has a special memory attached to it. I’m certain you have your own fond memories of these too.

  • Nabisco Choco Mallows.
  • Puffy Cone. This one had a marshmallow puff on the cone that was coated with chocolate. I can’t find this in the market anymore.
