I recently bought a box of Graham Crackers for some theraputic milk dunking and found myself in a perplexing picky eater position… somewhere along the line, a manufacturer altered the recipe of my favorite milk dunking cookie and now it didn’t taste right.
Now I know one of the major ways to spell disappointment, left with my memories, the loss of a taste actuality to a manufacturer’s whims. Taking a step back – how odd that my generation was one of the ones to get caught in the grips of factory forged foods. That I find myself remembering with foodness the taste sensation of foods that human hands never touched?
