Do you have a favorite junk food that has disappeared from the shelves? You know – the kind you could eat the entire box – but can’t find anywhere except in a gas station on a lower shelf covered with dust? You know it is old – but hey, it hasn’t expired yet and you LOVE this stuff! Then there comes a time when you can’t even find those lone dusty boxes – and you mourn its loss but move on to other junk food while you hold the memory close to your heart (and stomach) of that favorite treat – always hoping that someday someone would determine that this was really good stuff and worth making again!
Well, today my wish was granted! My son-in-law, who works for ConAgra informed me that they started making Screaming Yellow Zonkers again – and my daughter had informed him that this was one of my favorite indulgences! He’s going to find a couple of boxes for me and I’m going to start looking for it on shelves immediately!
I LOVE this stuff — I’m surprised my children weren’t all born addicted to the stuff since I ate so much of it while I was pregnant with each of my four children. And it wasn’t just a pregnancy food (and we all have those foods which we can’t get enough of during our pregnancy but then can’t stand to even talk about after the baby arrives) – I LOVE this food any time. What’s not to love – popcorn, buttery sugar, crunchy, sweet – everything that makes food worth chewing.
I’ll be waiting impatiently for my box of heavenly goodness — and I might have to start setting aside a part of my salary (and my daily calorie intake) for this treat!
Thank you to whoever decided that it was time to bring Screaming Yellow Zonkers back to life!
