The ‘Kid Food’ You Still Love
Maybe it's just nostalgia or maybe it just tastes good, but there are certain food that we loved as a kid that we still love as adults. Most of them are simple and easy, and when you think about it you probably shouldn't be eating them, but you can't help it. I think most people like the 'kid food' because it reminds them or a carefree time. Sometimes smells and taste can do that, so there is probably actually a real scientific explanation for it, but for now I will just say it's because it's delicious.
These delightful little cans of ravioli will be in my pantry until the day I die. As a matter of fact I would like to be buried with a can just in case I'm not actually dead. I know that I can go out to a nice Italian restaurant and get some authentic ravioli, but this is an awesome substitute.
Maybe they aren't actually a kid food, but the fact that you will no doubt throw a few of these bad boys on your fingers to make witch nails does. I don't know what exactly a bugle is made of, but if there is a bag around I am going to eat the hell out of it.
Better known today simply as Sunny D, this stuff is awful and wonderful at the same time. If your like me you think your taking a sip of orange juice and then get a quick surprise when it taste nothing like it. What the hell is Sunny D? Not sure, but it was always better than soda or purple stuff.
Peanut Butter & Jelly
When there is nothing else around, there is always pb & j. Old reliable. I think we always forget just how delicious it is until we are forced to eat it again as an adult. Now if you are feeling fancy you can use chunky peanut butter, but to make it classic you have to go with creamy, and concord grape.
Kraft Macaroni & Cheese
I think this might be everyone's favorite. Kraft mac n cheese has been around for a long time, and will continue to be as long as kids exist. Then we also get to have it as adults. They are trying to make "adult" style mac & cheese, but it's just not the same as the one in the blue box. Just dump that powder cheese in and have at it!
I'm not talking about shredded wheat or oat bran, I'm talking Corn Pops, Captain Crunch and Cinnamon Toast Crunch! The cereals that you use to dump all over the place and then plop in front of the TV on Saturday mornings to go into a sugar and cartoon coma! Personally, I am coo coo for Cocoa Puffs!
