We ate What?

For many of us, especially those of us parents of a certain (cough born in the 70’s cough) age we grew up eating things that we wouldn’t even think about letting our kids eat. We asked our Facebook fans what was a food item that you were raised on and loved as a kid but embarrasses you now as an adult.

Parents Confess to Food that ate as children

They told us it was meat…

  • Corned Beef in a Can
  • Spam
  • Vienna sausage in a can
  • Hot Dogs – cold and uncooked
  • Braunschweiger
  • Bologna – fried or rolled up with a cheese product slice
  • Steak Ums

It was cutting edge food technology…

  • Easy Cheese, from the can to your mouth
  • Tamales in a can
  • Ham and cheese loaf. I’m pretty certain that wasn’t really ham… or cheese.

We thought this was how everyone ate it…

  • Cucumber sandwiches
  • Hamburger Pea Gravy
  • Salami with cheese, ketchup and pickles

We loved it, but don’t tell our kids!

  • Hostess cupcakes


Spill it parents, what do you look back on and think….we ate what?
