Since I got such overwhelming response from my last Random posting, (Thank you, Gladys! I don’t know what I would do without my faithful Reader) I decided to do it again…
*Stuff They Don’t Make Anymore That I Really Miss
Pillsbury Toaster Strudel CHOCOLATE flavor: These are really good strudels, but chocolate was the best. I’ve seen the TV ads promoting these things as being something healthy to give your kids for breakfast. You can’t fool me: these are pure SUGAR! So why not make them CHOCOLATE and really make ‘em good? Don’t know why they discontinued them.
Pepperidge Farms Blueberry Turnovers: My absolute favorite flavor of turnovers. Used to get them all the time. The other flavors are OK. In fact, they are very good. But I want blueberry! They stopped making them! Why?? I haven’t seen blueberry turnovers in the regular bakery section of any store, either. What’s the deal???
Beef Noodle Soup:
Everybody loves miniatures. They’re so CUTE! “Look at that little ceramic turtle! Only as big as my thumb nail! Isn’t it CUTE?” “Look at that little tea set! Isn’t it CUTE?” “Tiny Sticky Notes! How CUTE!” Well, I happen to love miniature consumables, i.e. FOOD and DRINK. Here are some of my favorites:
Booze—how cute are those little airline bottles?? I LOVE toy booze! And they hold just enough to make a decent drink serving. Very expensive, though. Especially if you have to ride on an airplane to get them… They are available online and in some liquor stores, where they are STILL expensive. But they’re SO CUTE!
Soft drinks—Also expensive are the little half-sized cans of soda. The main place I would see them was in nursing homes and hospitals., but they're in stores now. Cute, yes, but just not enough volume for me to bother with.
Pickles—LOVE TOY PICKLES!! They’re usually called “baby”, “cocktail” or “snack size” but to me they are toy pickles. Yummy AND cute! What more could you ask for?
Watermelons—I have just recently seen the toy watermelons in the stores. They’ve had small sized watermelons before, but I thing the ones on the market now are even smaller. Have no clue what they taste like. BUT THEY ARE CUTE!
