Ito ay para sa mga kahenerasyon ko…
Before I fell in love with Pringles, Lays, Ruffles, Pic-Nic, Tostitos and all those expensive and imported junk I was just a sari-sari store fanatic. The pleasure I get from my imported junkies was never new at all… as a matter of fact, several years ago I can satisfy my taste bud with just 1 peso in my pocket. Yes! I am talking about my Childhood Comfort Snacks. (I know a lot of you will agree with me)
Most often the not, it comes in a very nasty packaging with weird character prints. Madalas nakapabitin sa mga bintana ng sari-sari store. If you’re unlucky pa nga, chances are makunat na ang nabili mo. It ranges from 50 cents to 2 pesos each. Unhealthy. Pero Delicious. Nostalgic!
I seriously miss munching them…
POM-POMS – number 1 in my list. I am happy to know that this is still available. Eto ang salarin bakit madalas kulay orange ang mga daliri ko nung bata pa ako. Munching them is like breathing.
WONDER BOY – I have a feeling that this snack is already extinct. I tried asking & looking around but the result is heartbreaking. This flat, salty potato chips is sobrang nakakaadik.
My appeal to the manufacturer of Wonder Boy.. please.. please… bring this back!
SWEET CORN – Need I say more? This snack is sweet and corny & I love it! Available in small pack, which I like better and the big one in decent foil pack. The good news is, it is still available.
NUTRI STAR – After not seeing this snack for such a long time, I was doing my SM Grocery one time & I saw it sitting in one of the unnoticeable rack. Napasigaw talaga ako sa tuwa at nag hord. I remember purchasing 18 pcs. of it. After a week of consuming all the 18 pcs., I lost him again. No longer available.
This sweet & salty star shaped chichirya is certainly one of the best. Available in 2 flavors, the red one as seen in the picture is Chicken BBQ and the Blue one which I forgot what flavor.. for I always go for the red. Please tell me where can I find it.
ICED GEM BISCUIT – Its color might attract you… but its look is really as amazing as its taste. I don’t crave for this every single day when I was a kid, but there are times that I really love eating them, especially the icing.
HAW FLAKES – Also know as OSTYA because it looks like . I used to portray the role of a priest while eating this.
This sweet and sour fusion Chinese candy is certainly delicious. I still eat this even up to now.
PRITOS RING – Aside from its delicious salty taste, eating this is fun! It became a norm & a habit of everyone, to put every piece in your fingers tsaka kakainin.
LECHON MANOK – I know how huge the fraction of MSG used to create this snack… but I can’t help it… it is so delicious. Its crunch and meaty taste makes it very addictive. And yes, I can see you nodding.
