Monday Musings with Sassy: Human Food Grief

Kitties - Since Mommie has been completely grief stricken over the news that the makers of Ding Dongs is going out of business, I decided to be nice and let her hijack this blog AGAIN!  Actually, to tell the truth, I am a little sad about the whole Ding Dong thing myself.  Oh, not because I eat them, but because I have discovered the following math formula: 

The More Ding Dongs Mommie Eats = The More Soft Padding in Mommie's Lap for me!

All of this has started Mommie to thinking about other foods that are no longer made that she misses such as: 

Big John's Baked Beans
 
 
Keebler's Chocolate Fudge Cookies
 
Mommie was not able to find a picture of these, but they were chocolate fudge sandwich cookies that had a slightly salty flavor.  Wonderful for dunking!
 
 
Farm Rich Vegetable Sticks
Assorted pieces of vegetables in a yummy (and probably fattening!) coating.
 
 
Does your human have any foods she/he wishes was still available?

The lady says she remembers when she was a kid there were these meatballs in gravy in a can. They tasted really good with spaghetti.
She hasn't seem them anywhere for over 40 years.(yes, she is that old).

Our Mom just has snacks she chooses not to eat anymore (for years and years!) and *sad ears* one of those was Twinkies.

Oddly, my human has no real food memories. I say oddly because she does like food! She just forgets about it if she has not eaten it in a long time.

Personally, I miss the original version of the Nutro gourmet chunky food - you know, before the big recall. That is when I started being really picky about food.

Mommy says Heath bars USED to be good (40 years ago) but they are just cheap imitations nowadays.

Hmmmmm!! She can't think of anything off hand!! I just wish I could have fresh cooked chicken breast every day!!! >^,,^<

The mom says Keebler used to make these cookies that had chocolate and caramel and nuts and she would buy them and eat the whole package in one sitting. She can't remember what they were called. She misses those cookies...though not all the weight she would gain!

Hey, we just heard that the Twinkie might be saved! YAY!!

My Human never met a food she didn't love. But good news for your Mom--looks like Hostess will be reskewed after all! Ding-Dongs and Twinkies for all! Now if only they made a nice fish-cake....

Nerissa said...

There are no more cookie making Keebler elves? My peep never knew! Oh, now she's so sad...

Now, let's see... The peep says she's most upset with the boxes of Turkey stuffing she used to get to use in various concoctions of hers. Oh, they're still available all right but... now they contain turkey or chicken stuff whereas before, they didn't and were vegetarian. Now, she can't make some of her favourite things like her cheese & onion and cheese & tomato balls. MOUSES! Why do peeps have to make my peep miserable like that?
