The other week, my friend at the office gave me a piece of my childhood back. It was candy that I haven't seen in ages!
STAY FRESH! Do you remember this? Back in grade school, I used to buy this all the time after lunch. My classmates would even use this as ammo for blowguns! I was in grade school from 91-99 and I have lots of memories! Now, I can't help but reminisce about the food that was back then!
On a hot school day, we'd always get SLUSH PUPPIE! Strawberry was my favorite and Lemon Lime comes in second. You could even mix it back then. This icy treat was pretty awesome. I remember it was located at the end of the Ateneo Grade School canteen and kids would line up for this. It's your typical ice mix with flavored syrup.
The other candy I remember and is still present now is Haw-Haw Milk candy! When I hear Haw-Haw, it's not that red round candy. This is the one with the cow! I tell you, this candy's a winner in my books!
I don't have pictures of the others but I can still remember the famous fried siomai from the grade school pergola. Sadly the pergola's gone!!! The melon samalamig is pretty awesome too!!! How much do kids bring to school as allowance these days?
Damn I miss being a kid...
