27 Things You Loved About Your Grandparent’s Kitchen
Was the fruit basket real or fake?
Grandma's Jell-O was always in a fancy glass dish.
2. Walnuts and a Nut Cracker
Those nuts were necessary when watching The Price Is Right.
You could find these mints anywhere in the house, especially in coat pockets.
4. Crochet Table Cloth
Don't you dare spill anything on your grandparent's doily tablecloth.
5. Generic Butter Pecan Ice Cream
A child's worst nightmare. There was never any Neapolitan or chocolate sauce.
6. Saltine Crackers
Dinner always came with a side of crackers. Or if I didn't like dinner I was stuck eating crackers for dinner.
7. Haribo Gummy Bears
Have you ever reached your hand in a jar of gummy bears before? It's weird, right?
8. Ancient Cast Iron Skillet
The famous skillet that has been passed down for five generations.
9. Lemon Creme Cookies
Grandma's sweet spot!
10. Creme Savers
Can be found at the bottom of grandma's purse.
11. Prune Juice
Prune juice always sat in the back of the fridge waiting for a tummy ache.
I was always sent home with Tupperware.
13. Pretzel Rods
With a glass of water on the side, puh-lease!
14. Wafer Cookies
Strawberry was my favorite flavor. Vanilla took second place and chocolate stayed in the packet.
15. Silver Tea Kettle
My grandparent's tea kettle was definitely the same age as my dad.
16. Fig Newtons
I miss you grandpa, but I really don't miss these.
17. Generic Brand Soda
Thank God kids still have an imagination.
18. Werther's Candies
Oh yeah! These candies cured everything.
19. Any Kind of Pie
"Come in and grab a slice of pie,"- Grandma.
Remember these tins from Christmas that were uneaten the entire year and still replaced the next Christmas?
21. Fruit Basket Centerpiece
I can honestly say the plastic grapes tasted the most real.
The soft chewy kind that was always stale, yeah that kind.
23. Ugly Kitchen Mat
This thing scared me every visit.
24. Iced Oatmeal Cookies
First, you lick the icing off then take that cookie down!
25. Mismatch Plates
If it was made in China it can be found in my grandma's cabinet.
26. Animal Crackers
Did anyone else talk to the animals first like me?
27. Fancy Candy Dish
Sneaking candy from out of these quietly took practice.
If you made it to the end of this list, I think it's time to give your grandparents a visit.
