Childhood food envy?

Miri1 | Oct 18, 2010 08:13 PM

When I was in elementary school, all of my friends were eating bags of Cheetos and Doritos and sandwiches made with Wonder Bread. None of those were kosher and so I was never allowed to eat them (still can't) and, weird though it may sound, I envied other kids for their carrot sticks. I know it sounds strange, but my mother just would NOT use a peeler to peel the carrots. She used a knofe to scrape them and I was sooo jealous of the other kids who had nice, smooth carrot sticks while mine were so :rough. These days I'm still envious of Kraft mac and cheese but there are kosher brands so I don't feel too left out. What did you envy as a kid? Or even now?
