    I do. I remember coming home from school and having Chips Ahoy and milk and watching afternoon cartoons. Good stuff.

    Peanut butter sandwich, on Old Fashioned Holsum brand (“holey”, not thin sliced enriched sandwich) bread.

    satisfied,
    with a fish on the line...”

    I wonder if I ever did a whole bag in one setting.

    go back: For me, getting home from school was a milk shake I made in our "blender" with ice and ice cream, sometimes add some banana or peanut butter, or both. Then, watch ABC after school specials, or game shows, or Gomer Pyle USMC, F Troop, etc.

    Both my brothers were a lot older so Pork Rinds, Slim Jims and Beer was a possibility.

    I do this, too. Right before their parents come to pick them up!

    In my 20's on of my sisters made me kinda mad... but I didn't say anything, the next time I watched her kids, I brought a gift! drum set... about 4 boxes of girl scout cookies and a gallon of milk and the big box of nestle's quick. I bought those kids a trampoline too (couple months later)... this is not as funny because you don't know her...

    When her kids were little *4 of them, she would wake them up on christmas morning, bathe them, spruce them up, put them in clean jammies and then film them 'getting up'

    I very much enjoyed blowing that up whenever I could.

    my sister eventually returned to being pretty cool. Her kids all grew up and became really interesting and cool people and still call me 'uncle fun'.

    My favorite munch-out in high school was a huge mixing bowl filled with Frosted Flakes, then covered with Ovaltine and milk. Intense sugar rush.

    Someone taught me years back to put Chips Ahoy! cookies in the microwave for a short burst (15-20 seconds). They come out soft and gooey.

    Many times as a kid I would polish off a sleeve of Fig Newtons and a bunch of milk, and I was skinny as a rail.

    Milk is still my favorite non-alcoholic beverage.

    No. But I do remember when my kids were young in the 60’s and 70’s and had those.

    i've always wanted just the oreo cookie and not the corn cream. the cookie by itself dunked in coffee is perfect.

    i'd give that to coffee, but milk is pretty up there. a cigarette with a glass of good whole milk works just as well as a cigarette and a coffee, hahah.

    This is a constant topic in my family. I stayed with my Great Grandmother a lot and there were always a few things she fed me.
    Oreos, Vanilla Wafers and Orange HI-C in the giant can. Also the Oreos were always stale. That is still how I eat them. Anytime I buy some I leave them open for a few days to let them get soft.

    Unfortunately, no, I do not remember that, possibly because I was born in 1999. :lol:
