Velveeta cheese for snacks. Take the roller-slicer thingy, and cleave off a hunk. Then listen to Bruce Marsh do a commercial to make a fabulous french cuisine meal using only Velveeta and Kraft Mayonnaise......

How about fish fingers and minute rice? My favorite kids in the kitchen dinner.

Then of course for the adults, there were the ever so amazing Kraft food commercials with casseroles for the overworked housewife. Eyes bugging out, visions of the PERFECT meal awaiting the return of the provider at the end of a busy day, danced through their minds. The kids had the fish fingers and watched horror movies after dinner in the recreation room.

As a youngster in the early 50's my favorites were sushi, sahimi and sukiyaki. We couldn't have these when dad was in town but we sure planned for those opportunities when he left town on a business trip! I would also sneak some each time my buddy and I took the train to Tokyo on weekends.

Mine was, taking a bite of a Malted Milk Chocolate bar, and a sip of Coca Cola, and enjoying the explosion that was going on in my mouth, been years since I have had that experience, think I just might go to the store and get the necessary provisions to recreate that awesome youthful memory.

Thanks for recreating that memory for me with the start of this thread...

Would that have been a Cadbury Malted Milk Chocolate bar?

Yes indeedy. I once smoked 10 of my Dad's unfiltered navy cut players. Must have been about 10. At 15 a friend and I got into Dad's rye whiskey. BAD move, I have never really been able to stomach it even 50 years later, except for hot toddies. Then it's medicine.

Salt Rising bread, toasted with lots of butter. Haven't found that anywhere for years... wonder if they still make it?

Every so often my grandfather would make sandwiches with my grandmother's homemade bread and fried cow's brains with horseradish and Coleman's mustard. I come from a fairly poor family and we ate a lot of food others wouldn't touch like mutton or pigeon.

Local market sold smoked carp every year just before Christmas. At that age, better than salmon.

Sounds like the stuff my husband used to have to eat. He did refuse the cow brains and tripe. To this day he is not fond of any food which looks grey, especially pigeon.

My mother fed too much tuna fish and raisins to us and I can't stand them now.

I seem to have an extreme fondness for fruit. We had cherry trees (my favorite), apples, pears, plums and an endless amount of berries. I do believe we love what we ate as a youth.

P.S. If it was any good to start with.

Along these same lines, what foods that you disliked were you forced to eat as a child and then later in life decided that you had grown to like?

There were taverns in my home town that specialized in brain sandwiches. My Dad always ate them with a big slice of onion.

My Mom made the best pies ever with the flakiest crust that would shatter when you touched it with a fork. We'd pick the blackberries & suffer the scratches, spiders & snakes to get enough for a deep dish pie or a cobbler. My aunt's pot roast was the best I've ever eaten.
I also loathe those little hard Sun-Maid raisins that my mother stuck in my lunch box. Nobody would ever trade me a Snowball or Twinkie for those nasty things.

Don’t care much for raisins either but do like them in oatmeal cookies but I would have traded Snowballs or Twinkies for them. Very Happy

Oh, good one: pate of any kind, hot pickles, snails, meatloaf, pot roast... however, I will never like cod tongue nor liver of any kind, no matter how much bacon it's buried under.

My Mom was a PHD type. We were just happy getting food LOL. I think we had
ten meals over and over. My Mom still hates to cook. I guess Maine Yankee Pot
Roast still rings my bell after thinking about it.

Worst thing ever, Limburger cheese. The stench was enough to stifle a coroner.
Second worst thing, liver.
Third worst thing sweetbreads in white sauce. GAG.

The truly horrible thing back in the days of children are to be seen and not heard was the lame brained idea of feeding the kid the exact same food that they hated until it either went bad or the kid gave in.

In my case I never gave in, and due to contamination of the refrigerator my beknighted mother was forced to throw it out. Eventually I did get her partially trained.

You’ve just eliminated some of my favorites. I would surely die from the lack of nutrition without tomatoes. How would you make a “Bloody Mary”? Hahaha!!!Very Happy

We were expert tomato thieves growing up. We would scrounge a nickel for those Morton salt and pepper shakers and cruise the back alleys to raid people's gardens. Ate more than a few ears of raw sweet corn too.

When we were kids, we used to sneak into a farmer's field and steal corn. One time he told us, "Hey, you kids take all the corn you want." That ruined it for us. Don't know if he was just being nice or if it was psychology on his part.

I remember how we all, even our parents loved the “Sweet Pea” harvest time. We lived on a curve that was just enough that if a truck was going to lose some it would be there. To this day I love peas.

We also use to glean the potato fields; my father’s theory was if you’re busy there is little time to make trouble, looking back, he was probably right.
