@miss-spunkin: I LOVE macaroni and cheese and chicken nuggets.  My husband actually prefers the dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets.

I still love Kraft mac and cheese and ramen noodles with a fiery passion but gave them up when I became healthier. I do still allow myself a McDonalds Happy Meal every once in a while though- I love the chicken nuggets! They are the perfect sized meal for me. I love that you can get apple dippers with them now, too.

Oh and Nilla wafers. I loved them as a kid and still love them now- but now I dip them in 0% fat Fage greek yogurt- so good!

@heather25: I’m with you, I hate ramen. I still love a pb&j sandwich with a glass of milk.

Franco American Raviolios!  I ate them on occasion as a kid, and it was always a treat.  If someone bought Chef Boyardee instead I’d be sad.  Raviolios were also mainstay of late night dorm food in college, and now they are so rare in NY that I buy 5+ cans every time I spot them, and heat myself up one as soona s I get home 🙂

@miss-spunkin: cheese sandwiches made on a keiser roll with mustard mayo and pickles….brings me right back to high school since i would get one of these sandwiches in the cafeteria nearly everyday. also, flamin hots and cheese dip. and lastly, i do not believe ill ever get sick of bologna sandwiches, but, its gotta be made in a very specific way. my great grandmother babysat me as a little girl and she would make me bologna and cheese sandwiches for lunch everyday. it was made with white wonder bread, miracle whip (which i hate in general, this is the only time ill ever eat it), a slice of kraft cheese and oscar meyer bologna. now i want one….damn it!

I grew up with McDonalds as a treat once every 3-4 months, and I still LOVE it!  I also like elbow macaroni in my tomato soup and campbells sirloin burger soup over rice (we had that all the time at my gramma’s house!)

The only “kid food” that I really don’t like anymore is most of the candy (sour anything eek) and cake–Little Debbies makes me want to puke–and the overly processed stuff. I can eat chicken strips, but regular McD’s chicken nuggets, bleh.

The other stuff…I’ll eat it, but it’s usually not my favorite. I’ll eat ramen, but I want to dress it up. I’ll eat Kraft MacnCheese but I’d rather have fancier baked stuff. Even fish sticks I can eat, but I’d much prefer tilapia and wild rice 😀

So, it’s not really that I don’t like the old kid stuff, I just have adult version that I like better now.
