Default Childhood Treats

I made my ultimate childhood breakfast treat this morning (other than eating dessert).
Cinnamon toast.
What was yours?

One of my favorite childhood treats was called Junket. It was sort of like pudding but much lighter. Came in vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. It was in little boxes and you mixed it with milk. Anyone else heard of this? Do they still make it? Wonder if I'd still like it--yep! Anything chocolate I'd like LOL.

Cinnamon toast was a rainy day favourite treat in our house when we were kids too. Another one was a dippy poached egg with toast soldiers.

I love Cinnamon toast! The other day I had some Hawaiian punch , had not had it in decades... once in a while when I was a kid we got one of the big cans , and would all sit down on a Saturday night for a movie on TV with a big glass of Hawaiian Punch. and maybe some popcorn. That was big living !

My favorite to this day is Onion dip and potato chips. My mom used to send us to the hayloft in the barn on rainy days with this treat. I love the smell of hay, rain and patter of rain on the tin roof. Now that I'm older, I realize it was survival for her to send 4 kids out to the barn from the house. But it seemed like such a treat then.

Buttered toast dipped into chocolate milk. And root beer from the root beer stand.

It was a treat for us to get a sugar cube to suck on!

Dream Whip, a powder that made a mousse-like dessert. Merri-Mints, only came out at parties and we were only allowed a couple of them.

Does anyone remember Zarex - syrup that came in a glass bottle and made something like Kool-aid.
