What foods bring back memories for you?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I was just wondering this as today I went into a newsagents and was merrily greeted by old school sweets and penny sweets that I havent had for years.
Reminded me of the days at school when my mum would give me and my bro and sister 15p each to spend on sweets, and how far we could stretch it..
I came out the shop with £2 worth of milk bottles, cola bottles, strawberries, flying saucers, liquorice whips and anything with sherbert on it..

What foods remind you of stuff?

    those breads with huge diameter, so it makes a giant slice, with butter and honey on it, and then sliced into squares. I used to eat it like that with a fork! Mummy did even cut the crust away!!!

    ahh, the memories,...

    Them cheese puff things that I think are called 'Crunchie Puffs'. They're a bit like Wotsits but in smaller childsize bags. We used to get them at Nursery during breaktime. Those were the days, eh?

    Granted they lost their animal shape, I don't care. My parents used to buy them for me all the time, and me only. I wouldn't share.

    I think I"ll go buy some later today

    I used to like the cereal lucky charms, has no memory attached to it though as such.

    Mountain Dew reminds me of being about 11 and walking round with my friend by her house.

    Toast with lemon curd in a 'sandwich' style reminds me of being little at my Nan's. I had it this morning :D brought back lovely memories.

    Nutella bars and any nutty chocolate reminds me of going on the german exchange though its more the smell than the taste.
    and crisps with lots of dip on reminds me of sleepovers at a friends house where we always have piles of food :)

    and turkish delight but it's all wrong now - they REALLY don't make it like they used to

    That's because Cadbury's make it now, not Fry's.

    Really? I know Cadburys have their own turkish delight bar, but I'm pretty sure the Fry's version is still out there.

    ETA: Mini milks and hubba bubba also bring back lots of memories!

    Yeah Fry's do still make Turkish Delight, just Cadbury's brought their own chocolate bar version out aswell.

    Feckin' love Turkish Delight, Fry's, Cadbury's, it's all good.....
    But the well old skool Turkish delight without chocolate in like the Turkish style boxes with loads of icing sugar on are insane in the membrane!

    Refreshers (as in these, but the sweeties were good too XD)
    Cherryade
    And also these

    Remind me of when I was at primary school and paying for them with 5p coins from my piggy bank XD. The shop was just round the corner, so at break times about 4 of us were allowed to go with the teacher and buy stuff XD.

    Chips in a cone with loads of salt and vinegar remind me of school discos. We used to go the local chippy after the discos.
