Just wondering if I'm the only one who likes fake food. I love instant potatos, TV dinner salsbury steak, and I'm even fond of the "hambugers" you get out of vending machines. I'm not compairing the taste to the real version, but how it stands on it's own. (Kinda how Diet DrPepper tastes good but nothing like Real DrPepper.)

BTW I love this site!

Hotrodder...

I am exactly the same with many foods!

Nothing better than a fried Spam sammich piled high with slaw and topped with a good mustard sauce.

I still LOVE the taste of boxed Kraft Dinner. I CAN tell the difference between it and other brands and simply HATE all the homemade recipes....I have tried many that claim to be the best...but they fall woefully short of the "blue box".

For many years I preferred hot dogs to steak! YIKES! Still love my dogs and many times I still choose them over a steak.

I like the school burgers, the ones that were mostly vegetable proteins, as well as school pizza (the rectangular kind) always with a bowl of corn, like I remember from my academic years.

Edited to add: Oh how could I miss my addiction to that neon orange nacho cheese sauce? Interesting fact, my dad is close friends to the son of the originator of the nacho, Ignacio Anaya from Piedras Negras, Coahuila Mexico, a border town. Now if I could only get a deal on a cheese pump!

Me too! We had hamburger buns with our TVP burgers that I think were potato rolls of some kind. Man, that was a long time ago.

I'm also a big fan of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, Cheetos (gotta love that electric orange cheese) and the ultimate fake food, Velveeta ("Pasturized Process Cheese Food"--is that what cheeses eat?). And I've got a nostalgic thing for "Banana Flips" fake banana sponge cake folded like a taco around fake banana cream. Wonder if they still make those?

I'm "wit" CheeseWit regarding Whiz, although I prefer Jim's to Pat's (not trying to start a fight, though...) :) I'm also a big fan of Cool Whip, and kind of like Fluff, although it's been many years. And, while it may not be entirely fake, when I was a kid, I LOVED a chocolate peanut butter product called Koogle. All of my friends hated it, and it was off the market rather quickly, as I recall. To me, it tasted like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. To most, it tasted rancid, I guess.

If you make the Kraft blue box PROPERLY,it will come out as creamy as any mac n cheese..but ya gotta cook it,not just dump everything in..There are certain frozen dinners that are actually pretty good-The Stouffers Chicken Fried steak is actually edible..better than some restaurants..REAL lumpy mashed taters for one..the Stouffers turkey aint bad either..and there is still a soft spot in the heart [literally!]for some of the Swansons stuff-the Fried Chicken can be good as well as the turkey...

I was JUST talking about Koogle! I LOVED that stuff! Peanut butter and chocolate! But then I remember it started getting grainy, like you wondered if there was sand or glass or something wrong in it, and then it just disappeared off the shelves. Thank got I found Nutella to save me.

There was also this stuff in a can called "fruit float" It was a hideous shade of purple and I was addicted to it. I guess it was kind of like jello mixed with cool whip, or yogurt mousse...it is indescribable.

Oh, and these weird sticks that were like dry, chewy, powdery, chocolate-like play-dough. They were called "Astronaut food" or something like that and came individually wrapped. They were awful and I loved them.

Kraft Mac and Cheese FOREVER!

School Cafeteria Food in the South was great. It was all made from scratch. In the 60's, when I went to school we all tried to work in the cafeteria, even if it meant cleaning trays. Just so we could eat early, work through lunch then get first dibs on the leftovers. The cinnamon rolls were outstanding! The bread/rolls unbelievable! Good Times!

Glenn- I'm with ya man. THe yeast rolls in my elementary school in rural North Louisiana were as good or better than any rolls I have ever had.

There was another dish called Lexington CHicken Spaghetti (Lexington Elementary, Monroe LA) that is wonderful. It can be found in the Junior League Cookbook from Monroe called "Cotton COuntry Collection" A truly world class cookbook.

As far as getting back on topic, I love those big Gorton batter dipped fish planks, but always feel stupid eating them, since I live all of ten miles from the Gulf Of Mexico. But they are a good, easy way of making proper fish Tacos.

I used to be really fond of the entire line of La Choy Chow Mein products when I was in college. Food in the bottom can and a tasty can of noodles in the top. Haven't eaten it in years, but it kept me alive in college (along with Aunt Jemima and dairy products from school ag barn

I'm an elementary school teacher in Brooklyn, and I'm the only teacher who buys the school lunch. The chicken nuggets are good, a new addition I didn't have as a kid. The wings taste like metal. The veal patty is surprisingly crispy and tasty. Although they serve everything with a bun, even chicken nuggets. Filler I guess. The pizza is still sub-Stouffers and remains a kid favorite. I grew up in LA, so I had a lot of Mexican food in the cafeteria. NYC kids are deprived. I couldn't wait for Tacquito day. The chocolate milk is still a nice treat, although standing in front of class with a bellyful of fried veal patties and chocolate milk is not always too comfortable. The desserts, as the Sterns would say, are inconsequential. Even the kids won't eat it. Actually, the kids have discerning tastes. If something stinks, they throw out the whole tray. You want to talk about service with a 'tude, the lunch ladies are Ms. Ratchits with a hair net. They're nice to me, though. If I'm around they're nice to the kids, too. I guess the kids are nice to them as well. Anyways, if you plan on dining in a NYC public school for lunch, go with the veal patty or the nuggets, stay away from the baked chicken.

The LA Unified School District cinnamon rolls are legendary. I got the recipe and their secret was mixing cake crumbs in with the cinnamon.

The only boxed food I like is scalloped potatoes. I mix in a few fresh potatoes and some cream and snobby gourmets go nuts over them. I wish I could find frozen dinners I liked. It would make life so much easier.

All of the rolls, breads and desserts at my early 70's high school were made from scratch, and they were outstanding. Shortly after I graduated a story was published in the local paper giving some recipes that were used in the schools. I treasure their recipes for butterscotch bars and cornmeal cookies! (Once I ate most of a batch of the cornmeal cookie recipe before it made it to the oven.)

Stoeffer's makes a mean frozen mac 'n cheese. Creamy, with macaroni that is cooked just right. Best of all, I am not tempted to eat enough for four people because the serving is only enough for two. (Don't ask if I can manage to eat only half of the package!)

I cann't believe I am admitting this in public, but here goes....

My whole family likes to have those trays of salsibury steaks everyonce in a while, with Hungryjack potatoes. My kids call it "Fake steak and potatoes"." />

My mother used to give us an extra nickle on Cinammon roll day at our elementary school. I always like the school pizza and burgers to in a kind of sick fascination kind of way.

AND, you just can't beat ball-park nachos with that cheese in a can and the who-knows-what chili.

Tripe. I think of menudo as a New Mexican dish that's supposed to be good for hangovers, but haven't had any since I was much too young to need a remedy!
We can add to my list:
  • High School cafeteria food

  • Junior High hamburgers, which included cottage cheese for some unknown reason

  • "Butter"ed movie popcorn

  • Grocery store tapioca pudding

Sundancer, the texture is a headtrip, to be sure. It's chewy, then soft and mushy (the lining of the stomach I guess). I could not get over the texture, the flavor didn't offend me. Reminded me of sushi, it's the texture that gets me every time.

AHA! It's posole I remember from childhood; and I remember liking it. Maybe it was a kinder, gentler tripe than Sundancer saw (& I have seen) at the grocer's?

After years of loathing it, I have come to enjoy cottage cheese. (Maybe I'm a kinder, gentler me? Nah.)We couldn't detect it in the burgers; some dim bulb made the school post their contents on the cafeteria menu.

One of my favorite fake food combinations was Franco-American Spaghetti <not Spaghetti-O's..Not EVER!> eaten with boiled Tobin's First Prize Hot Dogs. I didn't mix these together, but eat the hot dogs on buttered soft Wonder bread with the Franco spaghetti as a side. God being a kid was wonderful.

Using this definition of fake foods, my favorites would include some (by far not all) brands of instant mashed potatoes and of the rice or noodles mixes. More interesting to me, though, are the school cafeteria foods, which back in my day were not fake foods by any means but were fully from-scratch concoctions. Grade and high school favorites were sloppy joes, a non-spicy version of chili-mac, and great northern beans (which we doused with catsup) with cornbread. Two college cafeterias at which I ate had surprisingly delicious foods of all sorts, remembering particularly some of the salads, soups, and desserts. They served several versions of potato soup and a raw apple cake which I'd put up against those of the best restaurants anywhere. I've seen other but have never seen this particular version of apple cake (dark, moist, just a little spicy, with small chunks of raw apple, and guess what was a thick vanilla flavored white sauce drizzled over it) served anywhere else. Likewise, have never elsewhere seen one of the several versions (and all were good) of potato soup they served. In this particular soup the potatoes were pureed to a pulp and resided, not incorporated into, but were just in (kinda settled to bottom of bowl) a delicious clear but brown colored richly beef flavored broth. The beef broth flavor prevailed over that of the potato; guess it was like a thickened beef broth. So good! The other potato soups, tho delicious, were, like all their other great soups, more traditional. Would surely appreciate recipes for this apple cake or potato soup should this attempt at description ring a bell with anyone who has either recipe, or anything similar. Thanks. Liketoeat

I am not a fan of "fake food" and try to resist at almost all costs. However, Stauffer's creamed chipped beef is not bad and fits when I am having a craving. I once also got a great recipe for stuffed mushroom caps from the back of Stauffer's spinach souffle. Chips Deluxe cookies are a necessity at times. When I was a kid my mom used to buy these little frozen pizzas (about the size of your palm)--I think the brand was Gino's or Geno's. I did love those things. And yeah...any type of pasta that came in the can I loved when I was a kid. But now...I can't imagine how I did it!!

But TV dinners/salsibury steak "products" really gross me out!! And mac and cheese out of a box is sinful!!!!
