I miss the red dyed pistachios.  Except that my red fingers would stain the onions when it was time to switch them out on my belt, as was the fashion of the time.

brigid_fitch: I had a revelation while standing at the deli counter one day.  Land O' Lakes American cheese was on sale and everyone was on line buying it.  After hearing the guy behind the counter ask each person "yellow or white" every time, it dawned on me:  What the hell flavor is yellow?  Why am I eating this crap?  Looked it up online and found that American Cheese started out as a Colby/Cheddar blend but is now so processed it really can't be called cheese.  Screw that--I can buy colby & cheddar myself and make way better grilled cheese than Land O Lakes stuff.

American cheese was first perfected and made available to the public in response to the great earwax shortage of 1917.

wellreadneck: My grandparents made what they called 'cow butter'. I imagine they didn't separate the fat and the cows were mostly grass fed. That butter was white.

Well that settles it.
