    Had this discussion with family members while on vacation...what foods or other items did your parents have in the house when you were a kid that you would NEVER allow in yours today.

    My list:

    Miracle Whip
    Instant Coffee
    Marshmallow Fluff
    Tang
    Velvetta
    Margarine
    Ovaltine.

    Anyone else?

    To name a few:

    Wonder Bread
    Miracle Whip
    Velveeta
    Canned vegatables
    Margarine
    Oscar Meyer balogna
    Swanson TV dinners
    Chef-Boy-Ar-Dee anything
    Nestles Quik
    Devil Dogs

    Of course, if I wasn't married to a health Nazi, I'd probably still be eating/drinkng most of the crap on that list.

    I don't have a problem with spiders.

    But earwigs get no mercy.

    Snakes, mice and/or cousin too!

    neither in my household as a kid but that is what came to mind from the thread title.

    and Lard...my grandmother from Alabama used to fry her fried chicken in Lard.
