We have an old family VHS with the original commercial.

My wife just came home with a Stouffer's creamed chip beef package, upset it didn't come with bread. When I said it's like Freezer Queen! She had no idea what I was talking about. By the time my older brother and sister moved out my mom stopped cooking family dinners so she always kept these in the freezer for me whenever I wasn't eating with them or liked what she was cooking. They made for a quick after-school meal before I went off with my friends for the night. I remember they would go on sale, for like 10 cents each, and my parents would come home with a shopping bag full. These days I get an On-Cor meal if I'm hungry for cheap meat in gravy. Pretty much the same thing if you ask me.

I remember Chew man chew gum it had a unique taste to other gums around I recall. I got it via a vendor dispenser machine next to a corner shop up against the brick wall. Orange oblong wrapped gum for 1p. Oriental faced chap with hat on and Oriental writing on either side of face. Recall hard to chew for while but then you got the unique taste of gum. It was a taste which gave it something decidedly tad more than some others. Inside wrap was a fortune I remember.

Ingredients: Bell Peppers, Salt, Cornstarch, Monosodium Glutamate, Sugar, Onion, Yeast, Garlic and Red Pepper. I saved an empty package because I check every now and then to see if I can buy it someplace. I loved it so much.

My wife and I just had a Strawberry Cream Kolache from Weikel's Bakery located in Texas... You can order them and have them shipped... My wife said it reminded her of the old McDonalds Cheese Danishes... https://www.weikels.com/bakery/kolaches
Carnation Breakfast Bars, Comment by Karl on January 11, 2019 - Report this comment
Eating these bars after school are among my favorite memories. They used a lot of partially hydrogenated oils that weren’t up to public scrutiny from a health perspective, which is why they were pulled permanently from the market.
