My sister indulged us on Easter weekend with boxes of Lucky Elephant Pink Popcorn, from the Poppa Corn Corp. What a stream of memories that brought. Unfortunately the flavour is nothing compared to what it used to be forty plus years ago. Back then it actually tasted pink. Now it is a glazed candy coating that tastes sweet and nothing else. The box and the look of the popcorn brought back the most pleasant memories, but the taste was something new and not memorable. I do like that the box contains a nice sheet of glittery stickers instead of a useless plastic toy. Oh well, guess I can't have everything.
Over at the blog Halfway Between Here and There, the author felt opposite to me. Didn't like the old flavour and much prefers the new one.
Have you ever been excited to find a food that you haven't eaten in years, and then when you buy and taste it, it has changed, it no longer evokes the feelings you remember? Leave a comment and share those memories.
