10 Discontinued Junk Foods That My Son Will Never Get the Chance to Eat

10 Discontinued Foods

Some things are too good (or too bad) to keep around forever. This is especially true in the world of junk food, where brands constantly crank out products based on market trends and flimsy pop culture references.

My son will never eat some of the junk food I had when I was younger. I certainly won’t tell you that he’s missing out on some of these. This is a list of tooth-and-organ-rotting garbage. But try not to get nostalgic reading this list of stuff my kid will never be able to eat.

Review & Giveaway! Easy Lunchboxes

Review & Giveaway! Easy Lunchboxes

When I first started talking to Kelly Lester about her “Easy Lunchboxes,” she suggested that I use catch-phrases like:

  • “eco-friendly!”
  • “waste-free lunches!”
  • “bento lunch box!”

But I insisted that since this is a father’s website, that, no offense to the charm of her products, dudes like me think in a different way. That’s why I’m proud to announce these features of Easy Lunchboxes:

  • Fits a full pork chop!
  • Strong plastic!
  • Fits a full pork chop!

No matter whether you think like me or Kelly, however, I’ve got to say, these Easy Lunchboxes are big winners. Really. Everyone – man, woman and child – have something to use these things for. And despite some very minor details, these containers are one of the more useful tupperware-type things you can use for a toddler’s food and snacks. Okay, that’s over-stating it a little, but Easy Lunchboxes are awesome. And I love them.

Also – 8BitDad and Kelly Lester also wants to GIVE YOU a set for free! Find out how at the end of the review!

Review: The Gyro Bowl

Look, let’s not muddle up the main point with facts: the Löopa Gyro Bowl isn’t perfect. Yes, it’s dishwasher-safe. It’s BPA-free. It’s (according to their website) “virtually indestructible.” That means, as far as I know, that you can’t destroy it in virtual reality worlds like Second Life. The Gyro Bowl is a whole lot of great things, I guess. But unfortunately, it also looks like a toy and a challenge for kids. The minute some punk kid (read: your kid) sees that the inner-bowl rotates 360 degrees in every direction, the kid is most-definitely going to try to spill whatever’s in the bowl. Adults, believe it or not, will try to spill whatever’s in the bowl too. Read More
