One of the perks to working at the Glam office in Brisbane is the endless supply of snacks. Candy, soda, string cheese, crackers, cereal, bagels, cookies, fruit & veggies platters...you name it. I have a serious love/hate relationship with the kitchen here. If ever I have a sweet tooth or need a mid-day snack, I know I can count on the kitchen. On the other hand it's hard to resist. Emily and I face the dilemma that is "the glam kitchen" on a daily basis: Do I eat a bagel this morning? Is this bag of pretzel's absolutely necessary to get me through the day? It's someone's birthday, which means I should participate in the celebration by eating cake. Seriously?! (I have yet to win the epic battle against morning bagels).
Yesterday I was pleased to find a new addition to the office snack drawer: strawberry fruit roll-ups. I haven't encountered a snack like this since my elementary school days. I was so excited that I proceeded to be a selfish hoarder and snagged a bunch for my desk drawer. Such enthusiasm over fruit roll-ups got Emily and I to brainstorming some of our most missed childhood snacks. When is the last time you've had any of these classics from the 80's/90's?
