Memory Jogger Podcast 17: Hometown Restaurants and Forgotten Foods

On episode 17 of the Memory Jogger podcast, Jason and Wyatt recollect their favorite childhood restaurants, both local and nationwide franchises and fast food chains. We also remember some long-lost foods we grew up on including snacks, candy, cereal, and drinks from years past.

Some of the local restaurants we frequented include Tastee Freez, Stromboliland, Hoss's Steak House, Pizza Hut, Sid's Sub Shop, and Old Town Road Dairy. Foods we lived on back in the day include Buckwheat cereal, Tato Skins chips, shredded beef jerky, Dr. Pepper gum, and hot dogs with chili in the middle. We also remember making mountain pies over the campfire, eating Spaghettios at Grandma's house, and picking wild blackberries. Many more restaurants and foods remembered in this extended episode!
