5 Quick Ways To Relive Happy Memories With Your Favorite Childhood Snacks


    Don’t you find it amusing when you take a bite on your favorite chips and nibbles, cheerful images with your friends during school breaks come rushing in your head? I definitely do and it makes me smile whenever I think of the good old and carefree days of our youth.

    Chippy is my all-time favorite childhood snack


    If I were to choose just one snack brand, it would always be Chippy barbecue flavor. During my elementary days, I would always buy Chippy in our school canteen and ate it as I played with my classmates and neighbors. In high school, in college, and even up to this day, I eat Chippy because it makes me happy when I do so.

    Chippy’s different flavors


    Chippy’s taste has evolved over the years, to be honest. I liked its old flavor more but that doesn’t mean that I don’t like its current taste. I still enjoy these crunchy barbecue-flavored corn chips with gusto.

    What’s even better is that Chippy has added two more flavors to its line-up: Garlic & Vinegar (Chippy Green) and Chili & Cheese (Chippy Blue). A few years ago, I tasted what I think was a limited-edition flavor: Chippy Twister in Taco & Spice flavor. I liked it but couldn’t find this flavor in stores anymore. Anyway, Chippy fans still have three flavor options to choose from these days.

    There’s nothing more comforting than seeing the world through a child’s eyes. Here are some quick and easy activities for a trip down memory lane:

    1. Catch up with your friends


    Set up a virtual catch-up session with your elementary or high school friends. Think of the days when you are in your favorite hangout place or neighborhood store enjoying the affordable but yummy snack that never fails to put a smile on your face — the iconic Chippy.

    With Chippy’s many different flavors, opening a pack or two after a day’s work can take anyone back to the good old days.

    Spice up your virtual meet-up by mixing all different Chippy flavors in a bowl. What’s more, you can even encourage your friends to make their own homemade dips like melted cheese with ground beef for a Chippy Nacho snack.

    Why not teach your friends a cool hack by making a delicious onion dip using onions, mayonnaise, sour cream, and cream cheese? Or impress your friend with your gourmet skills in the kitchen by making a spinach artichoke dip.

    2. Bond with your siblings


    When things get rough, all we need is just a cheesy snack to get us through the day. So, bring out a pack of Chiz Curls and grab your favorite drink.

    Think of the days when you were little and you always ran to the sari-sari store to buy your favorite cheesy snack with your leftover allowance. It will surely make you smile when you reminisce about playing under the sun while snacking on your much-loved comfort food.

    With a bag of Chiz Curls, have a great time bonding with your siblings by talking about the silliest moments you had as kids. And while you're at it, you could also unearth old photos and recreate them now that you're all grown up.

    3. Indulge in sweets


    Remember the days when you gave yourself chocolate as a reward for doing well in school or for finishing all your household chores? Well, nothing will stop you from doing the same thing now. Reward yourself after a day of hard work by enjoying a pack of mouthwatering Cream-O cookies.

    Try making a refreshing Cream-O smoothie or pudding pops with ice and vanilla ice cream. You could also whip up a frozen, no-bake Cream-O cake or create cake pops. After all, you deserve all these sweet treats and more!

    4. Take a quick break


    Fretting over a long and busy day? Take a quick break to relax and relive your carefree childhood days by popping in your favorite Maxx Honey Lemon Candy. Now you can enjoy a refreshing and stress-free grind.

    Sometimes remembering the good old days with your go-to candy is all the break that you need.

    5. Bring out the kid in you


    The everyday routine can wear you down. There are times when you’d surely miss the good old days of your childhood when the littlest things can make you all excited. Well, don’t fret because a childhood staple is still around to add color and excitement to your day.

    You can bring out a coloring book to help you de-stress every once in a while, and enjoy a bag of Nips Chocolate. That should bring out the kid in you and give you good vibes for all your stressful days.

    3. Eating my childhood snacks brings back memories too. My snacks were similar with different brand names. I guess all of us ate similar things, huh?

    5. Perfect timing! I'm munching on Iced Gems as I'm reading this! My childhood go-to snack would be Mr. Chips. Weather hanging out with my sibling or drinking with my buddies, I'd always get myself a bag of Mr. Chips.


      PS: URC's factory is just a few blocks away and lakas maka-throwback ng amoy ng chocolates.

    11. ohhhh! you just made me think of one of my favorite things to eat when I was a child. I can't remember the name of it right now, but I can picture them. Chocolate, cake-like, sometimes with carmel.... I wonder if I would still think they are good or not?
