When I was a kid, and I was being very good, my mother would indulge me by buying a can of fruit cocktail and much like little Tommy in this commercial, I would eat it with gusto. I kept the canned fruit cocktail up for years and when I went off to college it was one of my great dorm room comforts. My first roommate tried to convince me that eating the canned fruits wasn’t worth it, but I never saw him eating any fruit, so what did he know. He was probably just jealous because I refused to share my delicious and convenient canned fruit with him.
