When I was a kid I used to bring a bag lunch to school everyday. Some years I had a cool lunchbox with a hologram. Other years I used a KISS lunchbox. My mom used to send us with our peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and we could buy milk or chocolate milk. Of course at that time milk was 5 cents and chocolate milk was10 cents.
Personally, I couldn't get away buying too many snacks because not many were offered, and my mom was a cafeteria lady at school. My favorite lunch I could buy was pizza, which was served on Friday. Looking back it was not the healthiest of pizzas because it looked more like a sponge with sauce and cheese on top than anything you would get in a New York pizzeria, but there was something about it that made me want to buy it at least one Friday a month.
