Your Favorite Childhood Snacks

More than 1,500 Food Network Facebook fans responded when we asked: “If you could go back in time, what childhood snack would you eat?” The answers were all over the map, with lots of comments for Mom’s (and Grandma’s) home cooking, but a few nostalgia-inducing picks came out on top.

The overwhelming choice: anything with peanut butter. Nothing screams childhood more than ants on a log, a combination of celery, peanut butter and raisins. Another popular favorite, peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwiches. Whether you called them “fluffernutters” or something entirely different, they still hold a place dear to your hearts.

MoonPies came in a close second, with Twinkies and Jell-O Pudding Pops holding a close third. Sugary treats like S’mores, Dunkaroos and Hostess Chocodiles (Twinkies covered in chocolate) were often listed, as well.

A surprise snack that many Southern fans can’t get enough of is a cold Coca-Cola in a glass bottle with salted peanuts inside. Fried bologna sandwiches and homemade Rice Krispies also make you melt, but not as much as a pure peanut butter and sugar rush.

What are your favorite childhood snacks?
