Combos Really Cheeses Your Hunger Away

Combos, cheesing your hunger
 away since the 1970s.

Throughout the 1980s I was all about Combos. Yes, I realize these cheese-filled pretzel snacks are still popular today, but it was the 1980s when I had my very first taste of Combos. I remember I was about ten and my family was on some sort of endless road trip. Maybe we went upstate, I don't recall exactly.

What I do remember was walking into a gas station rest stop with two dollars. I was ready to try something new and there they were in all their glory, Combos. I remember I wanted to make that taste last a very long time so I sucked on each Combo until it literally disintegrated in my mouth. I washed down each soggy cheesy pretzel with a mouthful of Diet Coke. It was heaven. To this day I still find Combos irresistible. 

Check out this vintage Combos commercial.

I just bought some of these the other day for my 3 year old. He didn't like them and neither did I. Hahaha!

I love still Combos! I don't eat them much, though, but I just got a bag recently and they were the pizza flavored pretzel ones - *sigh*

My kids used to love those and Bugles.

Looking at these reminds me of childhood sleepovers! Combos and Cheetos would usually be present. :)

Oh man, I HATED combos when I first tried them. I thought they were disgusting, but tastes really do change--now I love them! But I'm just into the classic flavor.
