Delicious childhood memories

Remember the good times you spent that one summer with friends and relatives? Those small feasts you had as kids whenever you felt exhausted from your skateboards, roller skates, football, basketball or even hide and seek sessions? How about that lonely cookie you managed to save for school and ended up sharing with your friends? 🙂

In today’s post, we’re going to take you on a walk down memory lane with some of our partners:

Fast food love

Whether it’s McDonald’s, Hardee’s, or KFC, we’ve all been crazy for the kid’s meal.

And we all know why:

And sometimes, the highlight of our day would simply be:

And you end up having a great memory of you and your childhood buddies having your first Happy Meal:

Koshary

Whether you skipped school with friends and gathered at the nearest Koshary store or your parents walked into home after a long day at work with a bag of Koshary containers, Koshary is one of those meals that reminded you of the good old days. No matter what the memory associated with Koshry is, it would surely be there for you whenever you longed for a cheap yet very delicious meal.

 Doughnuts

Donuts

Have you ever received a doughnut reward whenever you did great at school? Or perhaps had a surprise doughnut store visit with your parents? Regardless of how you finally got your hands on the mouthwatering lord of the rings, we’re sure it was a memory never to forget. Every time.

Does this remind you of something?

Bakery smells

Remember passing by the local bakery and standing there with your stomach urging you to walk into that place to grab a freshly baked croissant or a yummy pate?

We’ve all been there. The smell always reminds us of good times even as we grew into adults. Something about the bakery smells that reminds us of home and puts us into a state of trance.

Cake!

We all love cake. Admit it. Birthday cake, Gateaux, pound cake, you name it. We’ve had birthday parties, we’ve been to our neighbor’s birthday party, our friend’s birthday party and they’ve all had one thing in common: cake!

A whole lot of memories 🙂

Ramadan will always be full of memories of family visits and happy Iftar moments and a typical Ramadan Iftar would not be complete without the delicious Konafa or Basbousa, and Eid wouldn’t be worth it without the Ka’ak!

Pizza

Homemade pizza, ready made pizza, any pizza. It’s a number one childhood memory. If you’ve gathered with your parents and siblings around a nice box of freshly delivered pizza, you’ll totally relate. If Mom makes pizza and you know it has its own rating above all the other pizzas of the world, you’ll totally relate. Nothing beats homemade pizza and the memories of each time your mother brought out a tray of pizza from the oven. You impatiently picked on the hot dog or meat slices on the top and whatever dough hung out of that tray just to get the taste of the long awaited pizza Mom just baked.

Ice Cream

Summer time and Ice Cream always go hand in hand. Remember those creamy delicious treats?

And Pasta..

Spaghetti, Fettuccine, Lasagne, Cannelloni, Macaroni, Penne, noodles: they’re all the same to you as a kid. You just loved it. Whether with red sauce and meatballs, Bechamel sauce and minced meat, white sauce, chicken and mushroom, pasta remains one of those childhood dishes everyone loves.

You can’t deny that food has always been our childhood companion, whether with friends or family and many dishes add richness to our memories of those golden days. It almost seems as if food with all its variations allow such memories to come to life the minute we consume them and they automatically send us years back.
