RememBear This: Teddy Grahams
Oh Teddy Grahams, how you bring back simpler happier times. If we could all smile like the Dizzy Grizzles. I must say though, this box confuses me a little. Look how happy he is. Doesn’t he know he’s going to be eaten? Well maybe he isn’t going to be consumed but why then is he holding his brethren up to be chomped on? I guess survival of the fittest right? If he can get you full off his buddies he’ll make it out alive.
I always felt like I had to enjoy these because of my namesake. That’s not to say that they weren’t yummy in my tummy but I sort of felt obligated. I guess similar to a mother that has to enjoy her 4 year old’s breakfast in bed made on Mother’s Day regardless of what it is or how it tastes. I also felt this way about gummy bears but I didn’t actually enjoy them that much. Now Disney’s Gummi Bears on the other hand were/are/will always be tremendous. I freakin’ love that show. I recently bought them on DVD. Thank you Disney for releasing those, I’m forever grateful. Now if only I could get me some of that Gummi Beary Juice!
“We just want to eat, tasty teddy grahams. Scrumptious bunch of bite sized bears, full of golden graham. Oh let them be, your teddy grahams. (Delicious graham snacks in honey, cinnamon and chocolate.) Just want to eat those teddy grahams!”
Does enjoying these make me a cannibal? I hope not. I loved getting these in my red Spiderman lunch pail (are they still called pails even when they are plastic…I guess it’s just a lunch box), whatever the variety, regular, honey or chocolate. They once had a banana flavor! They also apparently have chocolate chip and oatmeal. I have yet to get a tasty taste of these though.
Not that I necessarily found pleasure in it but I would always bite their stinkin’ little heads off first and I know I’m not alone in this. I think it’s a natural instinct to do that. One thing I did not realize is that they have two designs, legs closed/hands up and legs open/hands down. This I did not know.
What’s your favorite animal inspired treat or snack?
Sorry for the poor quality but do you remember the Teddy Grahams Cereal! “Wake up everybody! Wake up! You’ve all been sound asleep woo, here’s breakfast bears to eat.”
