    A grilled cheese sandwich is not adult food?

    I didn't even know they still made Spaghetti-O's until a month or so ago when I was slumming around in Save-A-Lot stocking up on ramen noodles and bagged rice, and they had jumbo cans on sale for a buck.

    It's no longer "Franco-American," now it's Campbell's.

    Somehow I got curious and Googled, and apparently Campbell's, which had owned Franco-American all along, decided in the early 1990s they wanted to go for "brand consistency" and consolidate under one corporate name, so hasta la vista Franco-American and hello Campbell's Spaghetti.

    Christ, as a kid in the 1960s and 1970s, we ate Franco-American every week (sometimes more than once -- it keeps for days in the fridge). I was never real big on Spaghetti-O's, I usually went for just regular spaghetti, but up until high school I ate that stuff all the time.

    I bet I hadn't had a can in 30 years but I grabbed a couple cans and threw 'em in the cart. Had some the next night, and it was still damn good.

    I looked at the label, and while it certainly wouldn't qualify as health food, it was lower-calorie than a lot of the other crap I eat.

    Did anyone else go through this phase the first time you lived on your own where you bought a bunch of kids cereals that you'd have otherwise been ashamed to eat as an adult?

    Or was it just me?

    Pop Tarts.

    I still get a taste for Froot Loops from time to time.

    Apparently not, though that certainly didn't keep me from enjoying one for lunch today.

    I eat peanut butter sandwiches at least four days a week. Love 'em.
