BC Bloggers Meme #3

It’s BC Bloggers Meme Day and today’s question is:

What food takes you back to your childhood?

There are lots of food that brings me back to my childhood, just because they were my favorites before. Allow me to tell you one by one:

FISHBALLS. Outside our school gates, there would always be this man who had a pushcart where he can cook fishballs. There would be different kinds of sauces in jars where you can dip your fishballs. Yummy!

SCRAMBLE. And there would be another man outside the school gate, who set up the sidecar of his bicycle as a moving store. He had a blender and he would mix crushed ice with either orange or strawberry flavors. A refreshing drink on a hot summer!

CHEESE CURLS. I knew it was junk food, but I was not really interested about the cheese curls,but I was more excited about the kind of toy they had on every pack.

LALA CHOCOLATES. These were the cheap chocolates proudly-made from my little town Guiguinto. There was a rumor that the factory was located beside a funeral parlor, but we still loved it 🙂

SOURBALLS and PRETZELS. Sourballs were candies and pretzels were chocolate-coated sticks (not the ribbon-shaped bread you’re thinking). Both were packaged in a box, and just because they’re in a box, they were favorite Christmas gifts during school parties. Easy to wrap, but I would not want to receive!

    Those yummy junkfoods, of course who doesn’t love those?! Btw, do you know that scramble has made a comeback and is now sold in foodcarts at malls? Super sarap pa rin lalo na yung milk powder on top. 🙂

      Ah you’re from Malolos! Glad to find you here in the webspace! By the way, I’m based in the UAE now so I am not really staying in Guiguinto. We’re having a month-long vacation next month though, and we’ll be staying most of the days in Bulacan! I might have to wait for that manong to pass by too!!! 🙂


      • June 8, 2011 at 2:13 am

        figured that out upon perusing your blog 😉 wow a month-long vacation sounds exciting, you should go visit the places you’ve never been before + go back to those you have, too!
        cool you will be staying in Guiguinto, who knows we might bump into each other whilst doing our groceries, we go to the recently opened Puregold in Tabang + you might just catch manong, too! 😉

          Ah Puregold is already open?! It wasn’t open the last time I was in the country. Baka dun nga din kami mag grocery. Yeah, we’re excited about our vacation coz we usuallu get 3 weeks only. This time it’s 4 weeks! That means we can go around longer! Hope to see you then!

      I am not sure if Lala chocolates were widely distributed before, but they were made in Bulacan. I love Flat tops, too! I think they are still available in the stores.

    It’s nice to see a link to my blog in your post. The new concept of BC Bloggers sure is working out for me! 🙂
    I totally love food, and I dreamt of becoming a chef before but now I am pursuing my future nursing career which will hopefully start before this year ends! Fave ko talaga yung Lala chocolates, I always look for it up to now in sari-sari stores.

      Sarap ng Lala nooh…I’m not sure if it’s still available in the Phils though.

      I wish you the best of luck in pursuing the nursing career. Cheers!
