|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.
