Can you remember a time when raisins, prunes, and Jell-o were some of the special offerings at parties? Well, most kids these days can’t even imagine it. What’s being served at social functions today has changed so much since we were kids. With such a huge variety of processed snack foods on the market, it’s no wonder that we have long since abandoned dried fruit as a celebratory food- at least for most children’s parties. We were amazed at the foods they seemed to really enjoy (beyond just cheese curls and party mix). You just never know what’s going to be a hit with the kids!
