Childhood food memories have a profound impact. No meatloaf will ever be as good as your grandma’s meatloaf, even if your grandma’s meatloaf wasn’t actually that good. But some food memories are so tied to a time, that they won’t be repeated. Commercial foods are taken off the market, fads come and go, ideas about nutrition change, and the result is that some food memories will remain just memories, sometimes for the best. But nostalgia is a cozy feeling, so it’s nice to revisit food memories, even for foods you’d never eat today even if you could. Here are 15 foods you’ll probably remember and your kids will probably never have.
What about you? What are your favorite, or not so favorite, food memories?
