Hunt’s Snack Pack Pudding was School Lunchtime Gold


I was walking down the aisle in the Supermarket yesterday when I spotted the Snack Puddings on a really good sale and decided to pick some up for old time’s sake. Back in elementary school, one of these puddings was like a brick of gold when it came time for lunch trading at school. Very rarely did I have them, but when I did, I could easily trade them for two Twinkies or even a can of soda. I found it hard to resist a soda trade, so I doubt I many pudding packs that I ate myself.

Pudding Packs actually precede this Melissa Gilbert commercial by about 5 years and they continued to make them in the single serving cans until 1984 when they switched to the much easier to manage, plastic containers.

    Always one of my favorite schooltime desserts. Popping the top off and carefully licking the lid was extremely satisfying.
