When I was little I would eat Spaghetti-Os as often as my mom would let me. I wanted them for lunch and dinner, it didn’t really matter what time it was I loved Spaghetti-Os. I still have a little tiny thermos from when I was in Elementary school, the one my mom used to pack my lunches, and the inside is stained orange from all of the Spaghetti-Os she sent me to lunch with.
This,of course, was long before everyone started to loose their minds over what parents could pack and couldn’t pack their kids for lunch. Growing up my lunches consisted of Spaghetti-Os or a Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich, a fruit roll up and sometimes I’d get a jello pudding cup or a swiss roll cake. Later on in school I graduated to pizza lunchables but I continued to love my Spaghetti-Os.
However about 5 or 6 years ago Thomas and I really started to look at our food choices more. We started making better choices and put a limit on our processed foods. About 3 years ago we tried the Whole 30 challenge where we cut out processed foods for an entire month and while I hated it with a passion it changed my taste buds.
While I still love some junk food, I don’t go crazy over like I once did. Not only do I not go crazy over junk but some of the taste different to me too.A year or so ago I picked up a few cans of Spaghetti-Os at the store one day. I didn’t feel good and wasn’t in the mood to make anything at all and guess what. While they tasted ok, they were not the beloved Spaghetti-Os that I remembered from my childhood.
I was crushed.
