This brought back memories of snacking on Newman's Own cookies and Panda Licorice from the Albany, NY Co-op. My parents bought me Gushers and Oreos, too, but it's the weird 'healthy' stuff that sticks out. And yes, I do still spend a lot of my income on those things today. I recently had the brilliant idea to only buy expensive snacks in order to discourage myself from snacking. It's turned out exactly how you'd imagine it would turn out. Great article!
