Your favorite childhood snack(s)

Let us reminisce of our favorite childhood snack(s)!

Mine...

Peanut butter and syrup sandwiches
(In adulthood, it is peanut butter and honey...with a spoon!)

Ramon noodles on a slice of bread

Ok. No laughing now.
I used to like lettuce (iceberg) on fresh Wonder Bread with some Miracle Whip and maybe a dash of salt.

Another one was a banana with Miracle whip and chopped nuts on top. My mom would serves the banana sliced in half lengthwise, on a lettuce leaf with the rest of the stuff instead of a salad sometimes.

And of course a tomato sandwich or a cuke sandwich. Being a little kid mine was a half a sandwich.

In the winter, hot chocolate and toast with the toast used to dip into the hot chocolate. She used either PDQ or Nestles powder.

Cheese & crackers, head cheese (aka soulze) sandwiches, sardine & onion sandwiches - pretty much anything except peanut butter & jelly or any of the other "sweet" things. I was always a "savory" child - lol!!

we didn't snack at all when i was growing up. we had nice hardy three meals a day and that was it. once in a while and not very often we would make choco chip cookies and have a few of those.

Well, frankly. we HAD to have "snacks" growing up - lol. We lived towards the eastern end of Long Island, NY, & my father commuted by train to Manhattan every day. That meant he left the house at 5:30 a.m. every morning & arrived home between 7:30 & 8:00 p.m. at night. So we kids had breakfast, lunch at school, & a substantial "snack" (sandwich, soup, both, whatever we wanted etc., etc.) when we got home from school in the late afternoon (around 4:30 or so), & then had "dinner" when dad got home around 8-8:30 p.m. If dad phoned that he was going to be extra late, then we sadly had dinner without him, but this was life. And it was just this "life" that enabled us to grow up in the fabulous environment that was waterfront Long Island. Dad sacrificed a lot for us. But we really did need substantial "snacks" in this sort of lifestyle - much more than just "cookies & milk".

Mostly fruit, although my grandparents used to have these candies. I do not remember anything about them except they came in a black tin. I remember loving them though.

I was a savory kid and still love anything savory over sweet..One of my favorite things was when my grandpa would come in from the store he would bring fresh french bread still warm..I'd cut off a big hunk and put on mayo and slices of garlic, go out under the big tree in the back yard with a book and enjoy life.
