The Week In One Photo

It’s one of those weeks where I’m just going to ramble for a bit since I failed to take any photos other than this shot of the Mom’s Pantry Flashback puzzle my niece put together. I suppose I could have done a photo flashback feature of summer highlights, but I’m honestly too jaded to experience it again. Ok, that might not be true, but I’ve been held hostage by my books and remote control all week. I’m a fan of happy flashbacks and was surprised at all the memories that quickly flashed through my mind looking at this puzzle…my mother drinking Tab back in the 70s…the Twinkies are for dad, have a cookie…the Zingers in my Scooby-Doo lunch box…stealing my brother’s Pringles…The 70s “Mikey Likes It” Life cereal commercial…Searching for the Cracker Jack toy before eating the caramel coated popcorn…A lifetime of only using Heinz Ketchup and Mrs. Butterworth’s Syrup…Kool-Aid over Tang, Froot Loops over Fruity Pebbles, Doritos over Cheetos…Fine dining on Spaghetti-O’s…Breakfast with Tony The Tiger…I’m craving Pop-Tarts and just know that I have a box somewhere in the cupboard…

  1. I recognize some of those items from my childhood, but many were not available – possibly not on sale in the UK back then, or, even more likely, my mother would not allow certain products in the house! I like the image, very colourful, and if you find and eat even some of those, then I hope Harper can keep up as you burn off the sugar rush…
    Have a good weekend!

    • Thank you!🙂 I always laugh when I’m shopping and one of these items ends up in the cart with the thought of how much I loved it growing up to only discover there should be an age limit on some items. Of course, that never applies to pop-tarts, cookies, Cracker Jack popcorn, Doritos, Zingers…Enjoy the weekend!😁


  2. Heinz ketchup and Tony the tiger did make it in Britain , pity Count chockula didn’t. Haha that’s funny. Love this. I have books compiled by Robert Opie who had a museum of British packaging and stuff from previous decades.
