Remember back in the day
There used to be no better feeling that opening your lunch box at break time and discovering some chocolatey goodness in there. If I’m being completely honest I used to scoff half of my lunch before the clock even struck 12.00! We were absolutely over the moon when it came to discovering the wonders that your mum put in there for you. I think we can all agree that the highlight of any packed lunch was definitely Billy Bear Ham. However, it was very rare that we were lucky enough to have this on our sandwiches. It usually took a full-scale tantrum on the floor of Tesco to get your mum or dad to buy you this!
We definitely couldn’t complain when it came down to which biscuit we were going to have. There were endless amounts of chocolatey treats on offer for us at Tesco stores, whether it was a Gold bar or a Breakaway we loved it.
If you weren’t on the packed lunches, then you were blessed with warm school dinners…
Of course if you opted out of the good ol’ packed lunch (this was usually mums who couldn’t deal with the stress of tantrums in Tesco) – then it was school dinners for you! If you were on school dinners then you used to show off to those on packed lunches that you were getting warm food and they had to settle for squashed sandwiches. But, in reality we weren’t really getting the good end of the deal… I never thought I’d see the day when someone mixed corn, pretzels and chocolate milk, but hey this was the 90s and anything was possible!
Then you had to think who to sit with.
Once you had grabbed your packed lunch you had to think about who you would be sitting with at the lunch table. There was always the weird kid that sat by himself (you know, oversized school uniform passed down about 3 generations), the bitchy girl crowd and the computer geeks. The geeks laughed a lot and snorted (yeh, that used to put me off lunch too). This was such a dilemma because back at school your friendship group managed to changed at the quickest rate ever. Which meant you really did struggle. The other annoying thing was that at certain schools people on school dinners weren’t allowed to sit with those on packed lunches – that just made everything more awkward for everyone. There was also that one kid who used to live off the scraps of everyone else’s dinners…
Anyway, let’s cut to the chase. Time to take the quiz. Compare your results to the following:
- 15 – Snack God
- 12-14 – Snack King
- 10-12 – Snackaholic
- 8-10 – Serial Snacker
- Less than 5 – Get outta’ here!
Some people have done really well..
Others not so well…
So, do you think you have what it takes to guess the supermarket treat without the wrapper? We never really observed what we were eating because we used to just scoff it down. There are a few questions in this quiz that are purposely there to throw you – so beware of what your answers are! Not only will this quiz take you all the way down memory lane, but it will also make you extra hungry for a cheeky Echo bar or some Lunchables.. so beware!
Good luck, enjoy and don’t forget to share your results with us!
