    Foods from your past?

    In a bit of a nostalgic trip I've been reacquainting myself with Shipman's beef and crab paste. Only to discover a childhood favourite 'bloater paste' seems to be no more.

    What foods you grew up with are forgotten these days?

    Another I've only ever seen from my mum's cooking is 'Queen of Puddings'; anyone know it?

    Spam and space dust are two that come readily to mind. Although both are still sold today.

              A cabbage cut in half and then covered in tin foil, with cocktail sticks with cheese and pickled onions etc stuck in it at parties, so it ended up looking like a hedgehog

                Cheese & canned pineapple - the height of sophistication!

                    Still available but my dad used to like corned beef, chips and beans for tea. As in, a tin of corned beef cut into thick slices. I don't believe they were particularly poor growing up, but he was born around 1946 so presumably a legacy of rationing and that mindset. It's actually quite nice, better than spam IMO.
