I pulled out my heaviest parka for only the second time this year. It's this big down filled coat I bought at the Gap many years ago, and the only time it gets worn is when it's super cold like this, or I have to shovel snow or I'm sitting outside of Target with my friend on a cold November morning waiting for a CD. It's a serious warm jacket and I'm glad I have it. It serves it's purpose and has for many years now!
But anyway, before I risk turning this into nothing but a weather blog, let's change the subject. I read a list this morning a friend posted on Facebook of the Top 25 Foods You'll Never Eat Again - things that have pretty much been discontinued and were nothing more than a passing fad. A couple of things on the list stood out to me - Crispy M&M's and Surge pop. I loved Crispy M&M's! They had this like Rice Krispie type thing on the inside of the chocolate and they were so good. I used to sneak them into the movies. I was sad to seem them go. Surge on the other hand - man I could not stand that stuff. But it was huge when I was in high school and it was ever present at any of our all night lock-ins because it was basically Coca Cola's answer to Mountain Dew. And I'm pretty sure I would choke it down to impress the boys or something. Blech! Anyway, here's the link to the list http://www.buzzfeed.com/daves4/25-foods-youll-never-eat-again It's an interesting read that I think most 80's and early 90's kids will appreciate.
Apparently I'm just in a nostalgic mood today, all this reminiscing! Although it does make me curious, are there any discontinued food items that you miss?
Oh right, this is a fashion blog - ha! Um, my outfit was chosen more or less on it's ability to keep me warm today. Hope you're all staying warm too if it's cold where you are!
