1. Fried Baloney Sandwiches
Once that bubble started forming in the middle, you knew it was about to be lit!
2. “Roman” Noodles
Everybody knows at least one person who refers to this meal as “Roman” noodles, as opposed to its real name which is “Ramen” as seen on the package.
3. Government Cheese
Pronounced “guh-ment” cheese. If your family was poor, you definitely got some of this each month.
4. Pork n Beans
Pork n beans require an acquired taste. By the way, the pork comes from the cut up hot dogs added to the beans–for those that don’t know.
5. Corn Beef Hash
To be honest, this is pretty much a “grown-up” meal, however, every Black child has eaten it at least once.
6. Neckbones & Rice
This is something everyone’s grandma would make. Throw some cornbread on the side and you’re in business.
Nah, not the stuff in your inbox. We’re talking about the OG processed “meat” product that was served when everyone was tired of baloney sandwiches. Spam was eaten for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The only flavor we acknowledge is “Red”.
9. Storebrand Cereal
This is the kind of cereal that comes in a bag.
10. Quarter Waters
We still don’t know why they called it quarter “water”. There’s definitely more syrup than water in this drink lol.
