    Fudge Rounds and Star Crunches

    I just remembered that when I was a kid, I had this schedule where right after getting off the school bus, I would ride my bike 1/4 mile down the road to my hometown's little country store and I would buy, for a quarter, a Fudge Round or a Star Crunch, and eat it on the ride back home. Every single day. Like most kids I rode my bike a ton every day so that probably negated the calories, but I just sorta cringe now thinking of the nasty junk I was putting into my little body. Poor past me. At least I have the rest of my life to reverse the bad pseudofood that used to go into my cells!

    Yeah, my mom and I would walk to the dollar store and buy the same stuff, the oatmeal creme pies and similar. I was still eating those until I found about people food just a few years ago!
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I was a swiss roll kind of girl, myself. and we used to ride down a pretty busy highway to a gas station to buy candy. Our parents had no idea.
    It's just another day in paradise
    As you stumble to your bed
    You'd give anything to silence
    Those voices ringing in your head
    You thought you could find happiness
    Just over that green hill
    You thought you would be satisfied
    But you never will-
    Learn to be still

    Swiss Rolls... The food of my teenage years... I forgot about those too! At the commissary on my Army post where I grocery shop, the entire wall next to the self checkout lanes is covered with all these nasty foods, Swiss rolls, star crunches, the whole shebang. It actually grosses me out now seeing the packages.

    Yep oatmeal cream pies... my mom did not like me eating them at all really, but I would ride my bike down to the store and buy them also. Gross. I am pretty sure I would literally throw up if I ate one now!

    Actually, they changed the ingredients one year when HFCS hit the market. That's when the oatmeal creme pies became insufferably soggy and nowhere as delicious, but just as addictive!

    This thread has reminded me of a tribute video by EPIC MEALTIME... featuring "Marshmallow Stars"
    I think it's appropriate.
    (Warning: while I can watch most of this video agape... I cannot watch the end,where they eat the thing, without getting slightly ill. That's my public service announcement...)

    That was epic. My pregnant self thoroughly enjoyed that (but then again I like watching Man Vs Food when I'm not pregnant). I started laughing at the end when they showed it was 73,500 cals. A dark, secret part of me wants a bite...

    I ate oatmeal creme pies with my lunch every school day. I loved those damn things. I tried one a year ago and spat it back out. TOO SWEET.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
