Nabisco's Royal Lunch Milk Crackers have been discontinued

I find this thread so full of memories, thank you all. Milk lunch crackers were something I remembered from my Nunny's house, but her box was always a blue green color. Thanks to rspff for the mention of Mrs. Allisons and LU. That rang a bell for me. I looked for them, and found the crackers of my childhood. I mourn for all of you that miss the purple box. Losing a food you grew up with is so dissapointing. I miss the Sunbeam raisin biscuits too.

Blender Advice - aka KitchenAid vs. Cuisinart

Buy a Vitamix. I have a Vitamix 3600 bought in 1985. It has been used hard, and is still going strong. It's a terrific product, and the company stands behind them 100%. You might consider picking up a used one on ebay. A used 3600 is worth $100 (Canadian) in trade in value on a new model.

Obsolete Childhood Food Memories?

As a young girl I really wanted to fish when we were down the shore. Daddy wasn't a fisherman, so I learned how to crab. One morning Daddy took me crabbing with a friend and his son. Dad's friend was too cheap to rent a motorboat, so a rowboat would just have to doe . Needless to say, we didn't catch many crabs. So, the very next Saturday, Daddy woke me up and just the two of us went crabbing, in a real motorboat. We caught a big bushel basket full of crabs. I thought that Mom was going to kill him when we got home and she had to steam all of those crabs. One got loose, and Mom climbed up on a chair screaming. Daddy chased it around that small kitchen with a pair of pliers. Those fresh steamed crabs were so wonderful. I don't think I have ever had such delicious blue crabs since that night.
