    Super random, but does anyone who was a kid in the 2000s remember those yogurt-covered cluster-like snacks that came in pouches?? They were like crunchy... chocolaty and strawberry. I'm searching but can't find any pictures!

    You have me thinking of nougat clusters.

    I dont remember those, but I am still trying to find someone who remembers these mini cinnamon rolls they made. They looked like mini cinnamon rolls but were made with oats. I was 99% sure it was quaker, but could not find it after looking for ages on google etc. They were a small snack pack with like 5 dime sized oat baked cinnamon "rolls" with icing. I used to microwave them and they were delicious!

    I'll help you look! I'm still searching for what i was looking for... so hard to explain but I can taste them on my tongue... very light texture. Cloudy... clusters. I think they were available in chocolate, strawberry and vanilla.

    You guys. I feel like I’m going crazy... am I imagining this product?! Idkkk. 😩 they were like the yogurt clusters in some cereals, but super airy and would melt in your mouth. What the heck

    Ripe tomatoes, right off the vine! (I am with you @lynn_glenmont !)
    Also blackberries and muscadines, right off the vine, so warm and sweet!
    Cold milk, drunk after you first shook the jar to mix the cream back in.
    Homemade rum ice cream!
    Thin pancakes (not crepes, but not fluffy American standard pancakes) with a bit of powdered sugar and some lemon juice.
    Homemade fudge.
    My dad's homemade black-bottom pie!

    Oh, I forgot about homemade fudge!
    My older brothers would make it before I was allowed to use the stove, but they never let it cook long enough to set. So we would eat it out of the pan with spoons, or pour it over ice cream while still warm. Mmmm.

    They made them in peanut butter and cinnamon sugar. They were so good.

    Kraft Deluxe Macaroni Dinner, with bacon on it finished in the oven. Still make this when I'm in a bad mood.

    Mom's cookies. I've got the recipe and they just aren't the same as the ones she made. She would bake a batch and put them in our stockings at Christmas. Got them well into adulthood. I miss those.

    Another few things I was thinking about...

    Mom used to make "cheese crisps" that were my FAVORITE! I used to eat them for dinner or night snack all the time. (tortilla crisped on a pan topped with melted cheese) and I would put tons of franks hot sauce on them.

    Also these specific brand of chicken nuggets with the heavy breading. They have a signature taste I can still remember. Again with tons of hot sauce.

    And my favorite oatmeal as a kid.

    Also these. My aunt was always "on a diet" and had the southwestern chicken and sesame chicken south beach diet wraps in her fridge all the time. I would always have them when I went to her house because they were SO good.
