Food memories from yesteryear...

Recommended Posts

.... the good, the bad and the outright rank.

Vesta meals. The forerunner to the microwave meal, a taste of exotica (so we thought at the time), even though it was disgusting it was a topic of conversation at school.

Berni Inn: Remember seeing my sister chomp through steak diane, but it looked like cat vomit. Can't remember us ever receiving  exactly what we asked for. I've not touched steak since then.

Stuffed avacados and baked alaska is another.

The first Wimpy bar opened in my area. That was fine. A touch of Americana.

The Vesta Paella wasn't too bad.

Not food as such but I remember buying sweet cigarettes as a child.  A bit out of favor these days.

That's over-egging it a tad I would say. However, they were a useful standby for hungry students.

Heinz beans-with-pork-sausages on toast was a useful student stand-by. Still occasionally eat them but the sausages ain't what they used to be.

Never developed the taste for the spaghetti variants.
