    I loved those, especially the lemon!

    YES! and the vanilla. Have you had Siggi's lemon triple cream?

    No, I’ll have to look for it. Thanks!

    @5whiteroses :) so good!

    tortilla roll ups with melted string cheese

    This was my go-to meal any time I skipped the family's dinner because I didn't like what they were having 🤣 I was the pickiest of picky eaters 🤦🏻‍♀️

    I'm having something today I haven't had since I was 10 or so: kiwi! I used to love it as a kid but for some reason never bought it as an adult until now. I'm a little curious as to if it'll be as good as I remember it!

    My mom would make them for me with lots of franks hot sauce inside. She also made me pb&j and cream cheese & jelly roll ups for lunches.

    random but this reminds me of something my dad would always make... grilled cheese pepperoni sandwiches on the griddle

    Such a sweet thread and very fond memories

    What I remember:
    My mom's blueberry muffins made from a box with "real blueberries" in a can that I got to help with
    My mom always making our biryhday cakes from a box mix whatever flavor we wanted. Unless they had enough money and we wanted ice cream cake from Dairy Queen
    Dad's " homemade" pizza made using a chef boyardue mix
    Dad's homemade tenderloins
    My aunts fudge and sugar cookies
    American chop suey
    Stroganoff and three cheese box mix
    Spaghetti with poor mans garlic bread= hotdog buns topped with melted butter and garlic salt
    Summer cookouts

    My Dad would make box mix pancakes almost every Ssturday with bacon or sausage. Other mornings was cereal, leftovers, or nothing

    The Frank's hot sauce is different, most kids wouldn't get near the stuff.

    That's exactly what I thought upon reading this. I guess it's all what you get use to eating as a kid.

    Haha, I had strange tastes as a kid. I loved franks hot sauce so much, I would literally dump a half a cup on my chicken, veggies, tacos, anything so that it was swimming in it. I still love it and put it on everything from salads to veggies to soup. I don't like the heat/spiciness of it (I hate other spicy foods) just the flavor. I also liked to pour tons of vinegar on my french fries and drink it straight. I have a strange love for hot sauce and vinegar.

    I like Franks on scrambled eggs. It also makes some of the best fried fish or chicken tenders.

    My big childhood comfort meal was grilled cheese and tomato soup. It had to be Kraft cheese on Wonder Bread--grilled with loads of butter--and paired with Campbell's tomato soup. After a day playing in the snow, that SO hit the spot. We also did something called 'Fast Food Fridays' where we hit up a different takeout place. Parents didn't want to cook after a long work week, and me and my three brothers looked forward to sitting around the table together, playing with our Happy Meal toys or bonding over a pizza. I miss those days.

    My favorite thing after sledding and playing the snow all day was a banquet chicken pot pie and campbell's alphabet soup

    The grilled cheese sandwich and Campbell's tomato soup, sure was good, in fact it was so good I had it for lunch on Friday... and yes it is still very good!
