Old School Snacks

Look familiar? Did you eat “Ants on a Log” growing up? I actually did not, but we happened to have the three key ingredients in our cupboard and fridge this week (well, I used almond butter instead of peanut butter), and I couldn’t help but indulge in such an old school treat.
This snack got me thinking about what I ate religiously growing up. I was, and still am, a cereal fiend. I really can’t buy the stuff too often because I always plow through it at lightning speed. I’ve likely eaten more than my weight in Granny Smith apples dipped in peanut butter, and PB&J sandwiches. And, I vividly remember going through a period where I melted string cheese in the microwave and then proceeded to eat in slowly by pulling apart the melty strands with a fork. That snack still sounds kind of good now!
So I’m curious, what did you eat growing up? Do you still eat it? I could still eat apples and peanut butter and PB&J sandwiches all day long and I’d be perfectly content.
