Meals & Snacks That Will Only Make Sense If You Grew Up In Britain

By Ange Arnal 11 months ago

1. Square Pizza and Chips

Remember running through the school corridors to try and get to the front of the canteen queue? This Friday special was an absolute delight.

2. Fish Finger Sandwich

The best sandwich of all time. Frankly it's a travesty that this hasn't been added to the Tesco meal deal yet.

3. Red Leicester On Toast

It was just a better cheese to put on than cheddar or any of the other varieties. For some reason it just added that extra little bit of flavour.

4. Turkey Twizzlers And Potato Smilies

Before Jamie Oliver came along and totally ruined it all, these were the absolute best thing in the entire world. RIP.

5. Spaghetti Hoops On Toast

Yes, beans on toast are fab but these take it to a whole new level. Pasta on toast. It's just more special.

6. Crisp Butty

Slather some butter on bread, sprinkle on the crisps and then do the crunch down. Ah perfection.

7. Chippy Chips

Friday night rolls around and your parents couldn't be bothered to cook and so the announcement was made that we were having *drumroll please* CHIPPY TEA! *Crowd cheering noises*

8. Iced Buns

I mean, yeah it's bread with icing on which wouldn't exactly be considered a showstopper on the Great British Bake Off but somehow it is still the tastiest thing ever. Especially those fancy ones with the jam in the middle.

9. Chips, Gravy And Mushy Peas

Oh. Wow. We always consider the option of chips and curry sauce. But mushy peas and gravy is just the cheekiest chippy option.

10. Fake Cigarettes

Why did shops even sell these? A weird thing to sell to kids, but we weren't complaining when we felt untouchable pretending to smoke them...

11. Mini Cadbury's

Why does everything mini just somehow taste better?

12. Party Rings

Filling your plate with these at a party buffet, before your Mum put a sausage roll on to balance things out...

13. Mr Freeze

Letting these to melt and drinking the leftovers was a joy like no other.

14. Iced/ Chocolate Gems

Did anyone else used to pick off the iced bit and eat the biscuit separately? Just me then...

15. Cadbury's Animals

These were an absolute go-to as a playtime snack- even if you did get about 4 in a pack.

16. Choc Dips

Running to the tuck-shop after school for one of these was the highlight of the day. They might have been skimpy on the chocolate, but they were good while they lasted...

17. McCain Micro Chips

These and Fries2Go will forever remind me of childhood, despite them literally just being chips. There's something so nostalgic about these...

18. Billy Bear Ham

This couldn't be less appealing these days, but back then it made your day having Billy on your butty.

19. Viennetta

This and artic roll just has childhood written all over it.

20. Mini Milk Ice Creams

Not being allowed to go to the ice cream van, but having some of these in the freezer was the only compromise .Which brings back the best memories for you?
