The most sought after toy among my circle of friends was not a Megatron, a Castle Grayskull, or any number of Mobile Command Units. It was, kind of inexplicably, the Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine. I never got one, none of my friends ever got one, and today, as an adult who has the $15 to spend, I still don’t have one. There was just something really alluring about it. Was it because anything with Snoopy on it is instantly wholesome and wonderful? Probably, because the fact of the matter is I never really liked sno-cones. And I hear the sno-cones it made were less than stellar.
Man, I still want one.
