RE: Shake A Pudd'n
Yes, I remember Shake A Pudd'n. It was the one of the ultimate "Play with your Food" items as shown on TV commercials between Saturday morning cartoons. We begged our mom to get some for us when we went grocery shopping, but her frugality and suspicion of foods-not-made-from-scratch meant we had to stick to boxed, stove-cooked pudding.
Not to be thwarted, my little sister (she was about 5, I was about 10) and I decided to make our own Shake A Pudd'n of sorts with Nestle's Quick, milk, and ice cream in a tall plastic insulated tumbler with another shorter insulated plastic cup serving as the cap/top since it overlapped all of a quarter inch, we felt we had a safe seal between the two.
We went into the hallway (of our "new" house) and preceded to play "Shake A Pudd'n" which probably looked like we were dancing "the Monkey" with a cocktail shaker. Mine was coming along pretty nicely when my little sister's flew apart splattering chocolate milk and ice cream all over the white plaster wall from the baseboards to the ceiling. We wiped as much off as we could, but couldn't reach the ceiling, we basically just smeared the mess into a bigger mess, the Cat In The Hat would have been proud of us. When Mom got home, we caught hell, and we really caught hell when Dad came home. Our fun food was days were over until we grew up and moved out,lol. After that fiasco our chances of Mom ever buying real Shake A Pudd'n were zilch.
