Me, too. I hate thick burgers, and the hard, or crusty buns they put them
on. I remember Gossage Grill in Chicago - thin greasy cheeseburgers with the buns almost soggy from the grease. YUM!

I miss those Nabisco coconut chocolate chip cookies. I don't think I've seen those in stores for some twenty years.

Real sukiyaki.
Grilled toro the way my little neighborhood sushi-ya in Tokyo made it.
The secret ponzu at a little ryokan in the mountains of Nagano-ken; and they liked me so they told me the recipe.
Typical Japanese breakfast of a bowl of hot rice, a raw egg broken into the rice, a dash of soy sauce, mix it up with chopsticks, and start gathering a bit into a strip of nori seaweed. Oh be still my heart...
We sometimes have sukiyaki, dipping in raw egg the way we eat it. I miss takoyaki from a certain takoyaki stand in my childhood. Ramen from a little ramen shop in Beppu, where I grew up. Soba and Udon from a noodle stand by the train station. Obento box when I used to travel on bullet train to my grand parent's house. Really good Yakiniku(Korean BBQ) from a restaurant I used to work at in Tokyo when I was in college. Been in AZ for over 25 years. If I go back to Japan now, I'd bet I'll miss real home made tamales and green chili burritos.

You mean, there's more than one that tastes like soap?
Do you mean Chiclets?

What about Tart 'n Tinys or Bonkers?

When I was real young my grandmother would make fried chicken and banana cake every Sunday and we would go over as a family. My family moved away at 5 but I still remember the smell. My grandmother died when I was about 10 so I never got the recipe for these things, but sure wish I had.

When I was a kid I used to dip a banana in unmade strawberry jello. Yum! Did anyone else ever do that?
