    Oh my God!! I can remember having to run out after the milkman if we were allowed to have Vico or Beep! Give him the proper tokens….Days gone by.
    Cheeze whiz on celery was very sophisticated, gherkins…my Mom still has a jar of them . Probably from my childhood.
    I still dip my grilled cheese in ketchup!!
