In a discord server I use, we've been talking about how comfy it was taking a packed lunch to school as a kid. I haven't had one in...over 15 years maybe? But I work at school, and we went on a school trip where we had to take a packed lunch. I took a generic mix of a tesco wrap, a ginsters pasty, a lucozade and an orange, bought morning of on the way to work. But when I look back at being a kid, I remember packed lunches being the absolute best. For me, it was all about:
-A sandwich on Blackpool Roll, usually with one slice of ham/chicken
-A bag of ready salted walkers (or store brand)
-A yogurt (petis filous strawberry was the best)
-Some sort of fruit, usually some grapes or a tiny apple.
-Some sort of chocolate bar (the KING being either a minty CLUB, or a minty Penguin bar)
-Some Robinsons blackcurrant jucie in my action man water bottle
Of course, nothing rounds off a packed lunch quite like the lunchbox. I had a "Goosebumps" one for the infants (Ages 4-7) and an "Action Man" one for the juniors (Ages 7-11)
I dunno, I look back fondly on packed lunches. This might be a British culture thing though? Looking back at what I read, I realise a lot of this might aswell be Swahili to Americans. But all my GB friends are welcome and encouraged to join in on this thread. Packed lunch boys leave no person out!
