FOODS AND THE SPECIFIC MEMORIES THEY RECALL

  1. Pasta Roni Angel Hair Pasta with Herb
    One taste and I'm instantly five years old at a family friends house during a party.
  2. Hershey Kisses "Wish you a merry Christmas" commercial
    The family legend: ever since my first Christmas, whenever I heard that commercial come on I would stop whatever I was doing and crawl as fast as my little legs would allow to the tv to watch. While I don't crawl anymore, usually, you better believe all things stop and I will hush a loud room just to see those kisses ring.
  3. Shrimp Fried Rice from Rice Kitchen in East Lansing, MI.
    There was one weekend my freshman year where I never left my dorm room. I ordered shrimp fried rice at least once a day and binge watched almost all of Buffy. To this day whenever I have shrimp fried rice I hear the Buffy theme song. It works even better in reverse. Play that intro and I instantly taste the friend rice.
