I'm saturated. So here's a lighthearted thread.
What food takes you right back to being a kid?
Mine might be salad cream sandwiches on cheap white bread! Yum.

It's got to be Monster Munch and pasta with grated cheese.

Milk. Before Thatcher took it away that is grin

Banana sandwiches! I hate them now. Condensed milk. Bread and butter. And oxtail soup strangely enough.

Glitter - not... not together? Right??!

Dandandandandandandan Wed 07-Jun-17 15:20:37

Oh and mine - angel delight!

Omg op we used to have salad cream sandwiches.

My mum is Welsh though and now has altzimers sad so for me it's bakestone batter sizzling on the hot plate.

Great thread idea

Angel Delight and - separately - vegetable rice. And that chocolate sauce that froze on contact with ice cream. Ice Magic?

ImADingleDangleScarecrow Wed 07-Jun-17 15:23:49

Pink or green custard. You'd have to pay me to eat it nowadays though.

YouWouldntLetItLie Wed 07-Jun-17 15:23:50

And any amount of bread.

When I think of the days when going on a diet meant entire days of wholemeal bread, beans and jacket potatoes instead of declaring your house a carb-free zone, I get very nostalgic.

I always wanted that magic chocolate sauce! My mum wouldn't by it though.

@Dandandandandandandan haha no! And butterscotch angel delight is the best thing ever in the world.

My fil often makes a selection of puddings when we go for dinner. There is usually a jelly, blancmange (!!!), rice pudding, Angel delight etc.

I hate most of them.

Also heavily pregnant at the moment and have been craving that weird chocolate custard you used to get at school. Even though I hated it!

Raspberry ripple ice cream (when it came in blocks & actually had ripples) with squeezy raspberry, strawberry & chocolate sauce on - the jif (or jifesque) squeezy containers shaped like the fruits.

glitterglitters Wed 07-Jun-17 15:27:25

Oh god yes! Block ice cream. And those teddy bear wafers!
