Its time for another quiz. A quiz about our immature years.this doesn’t have anything to do with this post but this someecard is just brilliant.
Don’t worry, its not a lame Cosmo quiz or the kind you get in school although there is mention of school in this post so brace yourself.
This is an easy guide to the type of kid you were by the type of lunches you packed.
Time to judge our former selves by our former lunches:
If you had: Lunchables…..
At the time, you were really excited about this, but now you look back as an adult and realize that the Lunchable varieties became increasingly questionable with each successive incarnation. You basically mocked the idea of pizza by spreading an overly salted pizza sauce over a pathetic cracker with a plastic stick that that looks like it was stolen from the handi-snack packs.I have a feeling lunchables and handi-snakcs came from the same mothership
It was only a matter of time before anti-childhood obesity groups and health advocates stormed the Lunchables bastille in the name of all things saturated and salty.
If you had: Sunny D
Wow, you your taste buds were in some kind of comma.
I never understood the Sunndy D commercial when the kids were all being active and ADD and then run into the kitchen to open up the fridge and they yelled:
“What’ve got in the fridge?! Oh, we’ve got some expired milk, grape soda, gravy, wheatgrass juice, and SUNNY D!!!!”I’m, actually, that purple stuff doesn’t look too bad.
Yea, moron. Of course Sunny D will be a better choice than all those things. Sunny D tasted like cough syrup and if you got some in your lunch, you either had parents that didn’t know any better or your taste buds were asleep.
If you had: Leftovers
If your lunch contained chicken parm or lasasgna that your parents made for dinner the night before, congratulations, cause you were probably me.“Here, Eden. I was also too cheap to get tupperware but at least these will take the shape of your cubbie nicely!”
I was totally that kid with parents too lazy and non-American to bother putting peanut butter and jelly on some bread no matter how many times I begged. Having such werid fancy food that was cold got me a lot of eye rolls from my peers and totally useless lunch-trading goods.
You never had to worry about being picked for kickball or scoring another desirable item from another kids lunch.
Because if you had Koala Yummies, you reeked of coolness. You had everyone’s attention and affection. You knew that a fun and sweet snack was way beyond fruit roll ups and gushers. Koala Yummies were quirky yet not cloyingly sweet. They were gold when it came to trading. But why on earth would you trade a cute, delicious, and chocolate filled delight?So cute, you almost don’t want to eat it.
Nah, totally kidding, you could easily decapitate those bears.
That’s right, you wouldn’t.
If you had: Capri Sun
Your parents bought into the whole “all natural” marketing scheme only to be fooled by the hilarious sugar content that made these pouches essnetially liquid crack for children. If you were lucky to actually get that yellow straw into the silver pouch, your were probably revered by your peers as some sort of wizard.
(kind of unrelated: you were also probably captivated by the Alex Mack rip-off commercials in which active kids morphed into some silvery form of the juice.)
If you had: Carrot Sticks
You were deprived of the luxury of having goods to offer for intense negotiations around you at the cafeteria. \
You secretly wish those carrot sticks would be Cheetos one day and you’d often close your eyes as you munched on raw healthables and imagine with was Cheetos or any chip.
But it wasn’t and you felt like a rabbit.
On the bright side, very pretty eyes.
What did you have in your lunch as a kid? If it wasn’t on my list, what do you think it said about who you were?
