3 foods I wish I could still eat in public


publicfood

Kids get to eat all the good stuff without being judged. I remember the good ole' days when it was appropriate to walk around wearing a Ring Pop. If you were to do that nowadays, people would think you're a weirdo for sucking on a ring — and don't even get me started about Dunkaroos — I miss those. 

1. Scooby-Doo fruit snacks 

I literally used to worship Scooby-Doo fruit snacks. Everyday, after kindergarten, I would come home and eat about three bags. I can't even imagine the amount of Shaggy and Scooby-Doo shaped gummies I ingested. I'm estimating about 700 of them, so my chemical makeup is probably about 15 percent Scooby-Doo fruit snacks by now. I wonder how many odd looks I would get if I were to whip out these rad snacks in a class. Maybe I'll do it on the last day of classes, after which nobody will probably see me again. If anybody asks, I'll just say, "What are you talking about?" This way, I'll look like the normal one — take that.

2. Trix Yogurt

That silly rabbit never gets old. Now that I'm "old", I'm stuck eating Greek yogurt in public so people will think I'm somewhat mature. What people don't know is I enjoy Trix Yogurt behind closed doors. My name is Nicolette Accardi and I love Trix Yogurt. The feeling is mutual, I love eating Trix and Trix loves pleasing my tastebuds. It is a win-win situation. There is no other brand that makes cotton candy flavored yogurt, so a girl has to do what a girl has to do. I can't wait to get home and a enjoy a nice "Strawberry Banana Bash" Trix Yogurt. 

3. Lunchables

There was nothing like eating some miniature, cold, marinara sauce, on something that looked like a flatbread. C'mon, we all know that was not an actual flatbread. Lets not forget about that "gourmet" cheese it came with to sprinkle on top. Luncables pizza is like pizza before it hits puberty. For some strange, odd reason, I miss eating these pre-pubescent pizzas. It even came with a complementary, bite-size candy and beverage. What a package deal that was.
