Truthful Tuesday

I sometimes wonder if I'm solidly stuck in the past. I love throwback anything. And it would seem I'm not alone in that since everything is getting remade these days. From sitcoms (Fuller House) to sci-fi dramas (X-files anyone?) and fashion (high waisted, boot cut jeans) to video games (NES Classic!) what's old is certainly new again. And I as a consumer am EATING IT UP! Quite literally. Which leads to today's confession.
Last night, whilst left unattended, I discovered that Planters was bringing back Cheez Balls. Now, do I need to eat Cheez Balls in my current 25 lbs too heavy state? Nope. But it was late, and no one was watching me. So I pre-ordered myself a case of them. A CASE! Why a case you ask? Because I couldn't pre-order single cans. Plus, supposedly it's a limited time release. I mean, I can share with a friend... maybe. Probably not. #getinmybelly

Has anything come back from  your youth that you're excited about? What do you think of so many things getting remade or re-released? Also, raise your hands if you just ordered yourself some Cheez Balls!

    1. Right? I had actually looked for them not too long ago, because I didn't know that either. But I'm really happy they're back!

  5. It should make you feel better that you are the targeted consumer. It's not your fault! They bank on your nostalgia.

    But fake cheese anything is the bomb right?

    1. They're pandering to my weaknesses! And yes, real cheese, fake cheese, whatever as long as it's cheesy!

  6. I was so excited to see Crystal Pepsi when it came back (maybe last year?) and it was terrible :( I hope the Cheese Balls are everything you remember and more.

    1. Haha! I actually remember Crystal Pepsi being terrible, so hopefully the Cheez balls will still be what I recall!

  7. lol at the case of cheese balls! Hopefully they are as good as you remember. I can't remember if we had those back in the day...(I'm in Canada).

    Love throwback stuff - just got one of the NES classic mini consoles. So fun (but man am I rusty at the games!)

    My sat radio is on 1 of 3 stations - prime country (80s and 90s) or the 80s or 90s station...
