Childhood Favorites

I normally try to leave my emotions and appetite at home when I do the grocery shopping, but lately I have been unable to resist the lure of some of my childhood favorites:

  • Honey Roasted Peanuts
  • Ovaltine
  • Shells and Cheese
  • Cracklin' Oat Bran
  • Peanut Butter Capt'n Crunch
  • And even Spaghetti-O's
It's so fun to eat these newly discovered old treats. It's like reclaiming a few short minutes of childhood with each bite. The next time you are at the grocery store, I suggest you splurge on just one thing that takes you back to when you were a kid. The scientific world might argue that it will cut years off your life, but I would say that it actually gives back a little of the life that has already slipped by.


  1. I love Spaghetti-O's and Danielle doesn't like them too much. I think I secretly buy them because she'll only eat about half and I get to eat the rest! I'm such a bad mommy!

  2. You're definitely not a bad mommy. You just need to embrace your inner child from time to time.
