OK - there's a difference between favorite snacks and most common childhood snacks. I rarely got my faves. My folks were big gardeners.

Standard snacks were along the lines of peanut butter on cabbage leaves or celery, a left over baked apple with some maple syrup (thought those were horrid at the time - silly me) or a piece of toasted bread with some cheese melted over. I still love those.

So my favorites were not on that 'mom' list and they included cocoa with a dollop of mint chip ice cream to 'cool' it down, potato chips with a chocolate milk chaser and cinnamon toast.

Among countless things,most common were toasted butter and jam sandwiches eaten with cold sweet milk and often dipped in the milk,a jam roll of fried flat bread,potato crisps,corn on the cob,sprinkled with salt,pepper and lemon juice(oh yum),puff pastry crushed and mixed with granulated sugar.Me n my bro used to eat it with spoons.Banana and mango shakes,sugar cookies,cheddar slices.Ok this could take a while but i guess i should just shut up and leave the thread as i'm having those wild cravings to consume some of these things RIGHT NOW.

Summer sausage and creamcheese. Creamcheese spread on a piece of summer sausage and then another piece to cover then cut into little pie slices.

You Pennsilvania folks will know Summer sausage as Lebanon Balogna. (yours is better)

Years later I introduced my kids to it and they agree it rocks.

Black Cow (root beer & vanilla ice cream float)
7-Up over orange sherbert (dreamsickle float)
Milky Way bars

That's the store-bought stuff, for special treats; every day snacks were:
seedless grapes
crackers, plain or with peanut butter
sliced apples (grandma sliced'em for me)
Jello (Mom taught me how to make it myself)
carrot and green pepper sticks

We get by with a little help from our friends
