What a riot!
Where are these from? Looks like Hebrew or some other middle eastern language.

Japanese snacks are the best, even if they are hilarious!

That is the same brand that makes Pocky! Pocky Rules!

I love this post on so many levels. My mom was a health food nut too. It's likely she wanted us to have a good nutritional start on life, but it's also likely that sugar made her four children (me and triplets, if you can imagine) nuts in a way she just couldn't handle.

So all through childhood we suffered with wheat bread, peanut butter that separated when it sat; carob and Tiger Bars were our big treat and every morning we choked down handfuls of vitamins and sometimes her special shakes which were so unspeakable we've all put them from our minds, but remember they contained Brewer's Yeast.

We'd long for Jif peanut butter, white bread...there was an incident once with a solitary pop tart that was reminiscent of that science movie about pirhanas and the dead cow.

We had a baby sitter who felt so bad for us that she'd smuggle Hershey bars into the house when she came over. Oh, and the time my grandmother decided to make us cookies with no sugar...even the dog wouldn't eat them.

We all grew up big, strong and healthy, no doubt. We went through some serious junk food/refined sugar phases and now I take vitamins every day and make my kids eat vegetables, brown rice and tofu and I haven't bought white bread in 15 years.

*hugs Ruth* You are my sister in deprivation. Oh, how I remember Tiger Bars.

Remember Goober Grape? My fantasy was a breakfast of Frooty Pebbles and a lunch of Goober Grape on Wonder Bread.

Argh, and I posted in the wrong spot, too! I'm new to this, sorry. I do remember Goober Grape! I wanted Pop Tarts for breakfast, or Cocoa Pebbles (Chocolate milk cereal? Heaven.) or Frosted Lucky Charms. Any sugar cereal, really. And pre-blended peanut butter that you didn't have to mix for a half hour. With grape jelly on, of course, wonder bread.

I never even got to trade lunch stuff at school. Who would trade a Rice Krispie Treat for an apple?
