TechnoRetro Dads: Lunchboxes and the Sweet Snacks Waiting Within

by TechnoRetro Dads

Reminisce about the lunchboxes you used to take to school with shazbazzar, JediShua, and several EarBuds on TechnoRetro Dads.

JediShua and shazbazzar check out some retrotastic lunchboxes and remember the sweet taste of desserts their moms packed for them in the ‘70s and ‘80s.

One of the greatest things about elementary school was the school cafeteria.  The smells, the lighting, the squat milk cartons, and the sounds of metal lunchboxes opening somewhat simultaneously.  As the latches released and the hinges creaked, the anticipation grew as kids looked inside to see what their moms had packed for them.  Just wait till you see what the ‘Dads have packed into this episode of TechnoRetro Dads.

School Lunch: Lunchboxes and Snack Cakes

JediShua consumes the calories of some of the ‘Dads’ favorite snacks from their school days after discussing the history of lunchboxes (metal, vinyl, and plastic), their own lunchboxes, and the lunchboxes of several EarBuds.  From Mickey Mouse to Hopalong Cassidy to Luke Skywalker and Luke Duke, the cafeteria was a funner place (yes, Shua said, “funner”) with the heavily decorated lunchboxes of days gone by.  With input from Puddingsbane, Chris the Arvadinian, Jedi Holmes, Shane in GR, Courtney Martin, Joe Tavano, Fettmatic, Kendall Shroeder, and Bill from DorkLair, our virtual lunchboxes are filled with 

Vinyl Scratchback

This week in 1978 and 1988 had some memorable hits from Olivia Newton-John, Huey Lewis and the News, Robert Palmer, Whitney Houston, and George Michael.  Both shazbazzar and JediShua show their knowledge and lack thereof regarding these artists, their songs, and the videos.
