Candy corn (got so sick one Halloween from eating too much around 6 yrs old), can't eat it ever again. Even the smell can make me nauseous.

Patty, it's a good thing you gave up those Slim Jims - I heard on the news the other day that a "freak" accident at their processing plant killed three people and they have stopped production indefinitely. They expect a shortage of Slim Jims...

LOL, I really can't figure out WHY I used to like them anyway. It has been about 25 years ago.

There's a reason we used to like these foods if you're as old as me and lived some places I have -- they simply were the few options! In recent years I've tried to revisit some of those childhood favorites. What a laugh. I used to love those Chinese dinners in a can (Chung King I think; chop suey?), Dinty Moore beef stew, Kraft macoroni and cheese, and various hamburger helpers. Now? well, I can make a better version of any of them. BUT, that said, it is more expensive to make it from scratch than use these way-over-salted versions. And, to be fair, hamburger helper stroganof was something that made me think (in my teens) that this might be a good thing to learn to make from scratch, and I'm still known among family and friends for my great stroganof. But I think the hamburger helper version costs a fraction (yes, even buying good quality beef) of what the fresh ingredients cost me. OF course, now to me they just taste like a lot of salt, and I'm a salt-a-holic. If it is too salty for me, y'all better watch your blood pressure.
