    These were like crack. We moved to North Carolina from LA when I was 17, and every time I would come home for a visit I’d hit Safeway first thing, grab a bag, and eat myself sick!

    If we had ice cream I would come home from school and eat 1/2 gallon straight from the carton.

    The other day I remembered eating sugary cereal, usually Captain Crunch or Quisp (remember Quisp and Quake?) and then taking the leftover milk in the bowl and pouring it into my hot chocolate.

    I had the recollection when I was having lunch with my parents, and my dad was eating tomatoes with sugar.

    No idea what a bag of chips ahoy is.
    Milk was a luxury in Greece in the 60s and not widely drunk (I do remember the red Carnation evaporated milk tins in our pantry that was the norm since it was introduced by the red cross rations given to the starved population after the 2nd world war and the 4 year civil war that followed it).
    I do remember the slice of bread covered with a teaspoon of sugar and the raw beaten egg ,also with sugar,given to me by my granny as a treat on weekends and the home made lemonade, again with tons of sugar that my mom made daily during the summers.

    What? No one misses Ovaltine.
    BTW - I thought it was the greatest trick ever played on kids of the 60's. Marketed perfectly; including a secret decoder ring but tasted awful.

    Nope. Mom was into healthy food and cooking real meals for everyone. I appreciate it now.

    Around fifteen years ago, I tried explaining the drug culture of the 1970s as I experienced it to some twenty-something co-workers. I don't think they believed me.

    Uncle Fun is a nickname we should all strive to deserve!

    I thought that was the only point of becoming an uncle. Of course, this only works if you were smart enough to not have kids, yourself. Be that as it may, just realize that "Uncle Fun" is generally assumed to be a euphemism for "Uncle Money" ...

    When I was a kid in the 80's, it was a bag of Doritos and a Pepsi that I alway wanted.

    I looked for the first advertisements, expecting to find a pirate theme, but gave up. This will have to do:

    I've always said an uncle (the best kind, anyway) is halfway between a parent and a sibling.

    You appreciate what, not eating cookies and milk as a kid? My mom cooked healthy food too, but I was a kid and foolishly ate cookies. Jeez.

    If there were cookies in the house your mom wasn’t like mine at all.

    French fries, ketchup and a nickle bag would do me fine.

    "Post Toasties" not even "Corn Flakes" those were too expensive. Sometimes, If I was lucky, I'd get "Corn Pops" We had our milk delivered to us then too.
    We used to hunt the railroad tracks for bottles, and return them for the deposit. Which we would immediately use to buy candy. "Pixie Stix" anyone?

    One of my brother's is Uncle Cha Ching. One brother is not involved with the kids at all... even his own. One brother is the grumpy drunk uncle. we all have our role. I think I'm pretty generous with my nieces and nephews, but not to the degree Uncle Cha Ching is. (he has no children)
