I truly can't remember what exactly led me to the biscuit box, but it probably had something to do with "playing dogs." If you're unfamiliar, the game consists of three to five dog-obsessed little girls crawling around on their hands and knees, barking at each other and drinking water out of bowls on the floor. It was/is a total blast. One funny mom probably told me to sit and offered a reward, not realizing how deeply committed I was to my role. Honestly, they just taste like super-hard crackers. They're good for the gums. - Carrie Dennis, associate editor
When I was 10 or 11, I took one of those variety packs of overly sugared breakfast cereals, like Count Chocula, Frosted Flakes, Froot Loops, Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Special K, and I think Raisin Bran, then put them all in a food processor, added milk and water, and made this kind of breakfast cereal paste. Then I put them in balls and deep-fried them in used bacon grease and vegetable oil. We called them PS Fiestas. I believe the PS stood for "Pimp Shit."
I don't remember if it was necessarily all that gross, but then I dumped the almost two gallons of fat I'd used to deep-fry it in a pasta pot down the drain, and it congealed and overflowed into our basement, and cleaning a gallon of cooking fat off our basement floor DEFINITELY was very gross. - Matt Meltzer, Miami editor
Ungrilled cheese sandwiches
OK, so when I was a kid I used to eat non-grilled cheese sandwiches. It's not like a "regular" cheese sandwich -- if such a thing exists -- where it's bread with cheese, but a toasted bread sandwich with cheese. So, I'd put the bread in a toaster, slather it up with mayonnaise, and stick like five to 10 slices of American or cheddar cheese on it. Warm toast and ice-cold cheese, that was my scene in the '90s. - Jeremy Glass, Supercompressor vice editor
