The Green Giant is pretty great, but as a kid, the reason I always wanted Green Giant vegetables was because of Sprout. I thought he was pretty swell. Swell enough that at one point I attempted to dress up as Sprout on Halloween. I got green sweatpants and a t-shirt and I smeared green make-up from the Halloween face painting kit I got at the Five and Dime.
I marched down the stairs and my sisters started laughing and asked if I was supposed to be Kermit the Frog. It sent me running right back to my trusty and well taped and stapled C3PO costume. I will always regret not being Sprout as a kid, but…Halloween is just around the corner.
