    So, growing up we were super poor…like heat our house with wood 11 siblings and my dad worked for the steelmill poor. So my mom would make our lunch sandwiches with lettuce instead of bread. It was embarrassing at the time but who would have known my mom was ahead of her time. Now people actually PAY to have lettuce instead of bread with their burger…HAHAH

    Anyway I would have to say my favorite thing in my lunch when I was a kid was an apple. Kinda geeky but I still LOVE apples..and we never got junk when I was a kid. Maybe that is why I love junk so much now.

  • Jessica B.

    My family qualified for free hot lunch, so this is what we had to have all through school. And believe me, the hot lunch by us was NOT good, except for a few things that I looked forward to. My daughter starts school this year, and wants to bring her own lunch, so I can’t wait to think of some special things to include in her box that she’ll be able to remember as she gets older.

  • Melissa

    It wouldn’t be lunch for my daughter unless it included a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I try and try to change things up a little but she insists!

  • Laura

    I LOVED getting to pick out Chocolate Hostess Cupcakes with the white swirl on top and creme filling in the center. The plastic cupcake packaging even made it more special. 🙂

  • My favorite lunch box item was the occasional note that my mom would send as a surprise. Always made my day. I try to sometimes do it for my kids, especially when it seems like they are having a tough time.

  • One of my favorite memories of school lunches are the notes my mom used to send on the first day of school each year. Even with seven kids, she never forgot!

  • Carrie

    I loved it when my mom put tomato soup in my thermos in the winter.

  • Rhonda

    Store-bought desserts were a treat for us. Every once in awhile mom would go to the day old bakery store (Hostess) and buy a bunch of pies, cupcakes, etc. I loved the apple pies (and still do) and remember distinctly the one and only time mom slipped a hostess apple pie in my lunch. I felt like a queen. This was 40+ years ago.

  • Mary

    I loooove yogurt! I put a cup in nearly every day.

  • SeungHee

    My mom always had my lunch balanced in colors and tastes, for example, if she packed rice and some beef then she sould add some yellow pickles that could go with them so that I didn’t have to eat all dry food only.

    By the way, if I won this, I think I would be most excited about that uncrustables sandwich container (with matching coupons!).

    Jello pudding snacks were my fave!

  • TARA

I bought her two as a special treat for her first week back to school (it’s her first year eating lunch at school–1st grade!) They will likely be the only offical lunchables she’ll get this year unless I get a good coupon, but I have lots of crackers stockpiled so we’ll make some of our own. 🙂

  • Jennifer Ivey

    My favorites are still Kudos Bars… if I can ever find them!

    It seems quite a few people liked the same kinds of smacks as I did, hehe. I loved the oatmeal cookies with the cream filling by Little Debbie…I would eat the filling and then eat the cookies!

    My favorite was getting the Fudge Stripe cookies in my lunchbox and then putting them on my fingers!

  • I always loved the thermos that came in my lunchbox – they were so cute! My mom usually filled them with yummy soup or mac n cheese. My other favorite was a sliced apple stuck together in the middle (where the core would be) with peanut butter. We’re not quite to the lunchbox stage yet, but I hope when we get there that I manage to pack a fun lunch for my kiddos!
