In the summer of 1990, I ate these most everyday for lunch after a fun morning at summer school. (Yeah, I went to summer school for fun. I had computers, then drama. Now you feel bad for mocking me, because it was awesome and you’re jealous.) Two things about Lunch Bucket mystify me to this day: while you pop off most of the metal lid and replace it with the air-holed plastic cap, how is it okay to put even a little metal in the microwave; and why did a large company think putting the word “bucket” in its product name was the most appetizing option? Did the butler mascot make it fancy, like Grey Poupon fancy?
