And then last month, one day I was in Dollar Tree. And there before me, was a 5 pack of Ssips. Was it the same delicacy that I remembered? The boxes were not the same black color as in high school, but I had high hopes as I put some in my cart.
Sadly, this story does not (so far) have a happy ending. I went to three Dollar Trees and have yet to locate anymore 5 packs of Ssips. I have a sneaking suspicion that I bought a 5 pack that was produced back in 1990 and was about to expire this spring. Maybe it was the last one in existence! Why oh why didn't I buy more than one?!?
How about you, readers? What special treat from your childhood would you be excited to see on the grocery shelves today?
