What was in your Lunchbox when you were growing up?

I was browsing through some old magazines when I found this image of a Daniel Boone lunchbox stuffed to the gills with food and it got me thinking back to my youth and the lunches that I hauled around in my trust metal lunch pal. Usually a sandwich, some sort of treat like an apple, orange or Twinkie and a Thermos of milk.

After thinking about it for a while, it got me wondering what other people might have eaten at lunch time? I remember most of my friends had very similar stuff, although I recall a few friends occasionally had crazy delicious looking sandwiches like Chicken Parmesan that set my mouth watering.

So here are some questions. What sort of lunch did you bring or did you get a school lunch? Were you one of those lucky kids with a parent who packed them some incredible delicacy that made all the other kids jealous?
