Things Kids Don’t Know: Packaging

I was thinking the other day about what sort of things kids born now won’t understand unless we take the time to explain them to them.

1. Coffee used to be sold by the pound in 1 pound bags.

2. Milk used to be sold by the gallon in 1 gallon bottles.

3. It used to be nearly impossible to eat an entire bag of Oreos.

7. Food was labeled “Atkins Friendly” to tell people they could eat whatever they wanted as long as it was low-carb.

8. Kiwis were exotic.

9. Crushing a can on your forehead used to hurt.

10. White Castle fries used to only come in one size.
