Blizzards, Slurpees and Frostys? Even if you’re watching your waistline now, these are all indulgences you at least experienced when you were a kid, right? Well not one of my best friends. I can’t say that she grew up “sheltered,” but her parents definitely kept her away from all the hyped-up products that flooded my Nickelodeon commercials. As we drove down a chain-ridden road today, we took great pleasure in saying, “Hey, have you ever had this? What about this?” and let’s just say, I felt bad for her and all that she has not tried.
1) Dipping McDonald’s fries into a Sweet and Sour Sauce/Ketchup combo (it sounds gross, I know, but let me tell you it was great!)
2) Sour Cream Krispy Kreme donuts
3) Rainbow Ice Dippin’ Dots
4) Nik-L-Nips Wax Bottles
5) Strawberry Soda and Vanilla Ice Cream Float!
I feel like this list could go on and on… Luckily, you can find A LOT of your childhood faves at this site: http://www.hometownfavorites.com/ if you ever want a sweet taste of true nostalgia.
