It’s that time again for the April A to Z Blog Challenge. I’ve done this one for quite a few years, and it’s always fun.

This time I decided to go with the miscellaneous type posts, which some days will be whatever I want, and other days will be a resurrection of my older posts that pretty much no one or very few ever saw.

Well, another A to Z Blog Challenge has come and gone. This is my final entry for 2021, and it’s been fun. Hope you’ve enjoyed some of these posts from long ago. Thank you so much for all the visits, likes, and comments! They are so appreciated! ❤

So, here we go with Letter Z  …

SCREAMING YELLOW ZONKERS!

Yummy, sweetened popcorn in a box…that’s Screaming Yellow Zonkers!

Back in the 1960s and early 1970s, Zonkers were a must have snack among the hippie crowd. The popcorn tasted great when you had the munchies, but the box it came in was special.

You bought the snack as much for the box, as for the popcorn. The box was black, one of the first products to be packaged in a black box. There was lots of writing on the box…some of it absurd, mostly funny, with cartoon characters and witty (so we thought) sayings. That was the main selling point…the snack was just a bonus.

At times Zonkers were hard to find at the store. If someone found a store that was selling them, word was passed around. I remember at least once, driving way out of my way to find them. Down unfamiliar streets, I went, finally finding the little convenience store that reportedly had Zonkers. It was so worth the trip…I had my Zonkers!

Screaming Yellow Zonkers were discontinued in 2007, but as of May 2012, they have been in production again, in limited editions. You can find them at times at Walgreens Drug Stores!

Thanks for reading!

I don’t really have much to say about nuts, except I really like them, but can’t eat them anymore. Except peanut butter. I have that with pieces of apples every day.

I had breakfast, which included grape jelly on toast, but no nuts.

The cats have been fed their crunchies, but no nuts.

The birds have been fed, but no nuts.

We do have one outside cat, Tabby Tabs, and he loves to eat bird seed. I see him out there every day munching on the seeds on the ground. If there aren’t any, he’ll jump up, knocking the bird feeder around so it will spill more seeds out. Maybe the seeds taste like nuts?

One time my Dad wanted to see what would happen if he tried popping some bird seeds. They popped just like popcorn!

I think corn is a grain, and we pop that, so why not bird seed grain. Funny that it worked just the same.

Still, it’s not a nut.

This post is a bit nutty, though.

Enjoy your weekend – even with the nutty time change!

Flower of the Day – Peony

I’m pretty sure this is a peony flower. It is not fully opened. It is white, with touches of pale pink, and is surrounded by broad green leaves. For some reason it looks like a large piece of popcorn, to me!

Nuts! -Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS – Noun

Standard

Nuts! – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Noun

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 9/18

***

It’s Saturday, so it’s time for another SOCS, with the prompt word ‘noun’, provided to us by Linda G. Hill. Thanks, Linda!

Click the above link to find out how you can join in the weekly fun.

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “start with a noun.” Start your post with a noun, and write about whatever it is. Have fun!

***

Nuts. That’s my noun of the day. There’s so many nouns to choose from, so how can I even begin? Then I was thinking this is just nuts, go on and pick something, already.

Bing bing bing…

There’s my noun…nuts!

I love nuts…the kind you eat…but I can’t eat them any more. Having diverticulosis/diverticulitis, it’s recommended not to eat any kinds of nuts, or seeds, or any kind of hard particles of foods.

Oh, popcorn…I crave popcorn, but can’t eat it. That means I don’t go out to see a movie any more, either, because the main reason I’d go would be for the popcorn.

Seeds are a no-no, too. I have to scrape out any kind of seeds in foods, like bananas, tomatoes, cucumbers, spices, peppers, fruits with small seeds.

It gets tedious, and boring, and time consuming, and boring. Yes, boring twice, and people get tired of me saying I can’t eat something because of the seeds. No more sesame seed buns, so have to have a plain one. No whole grain breads, because seeds are in there. I’m always on the look-out for seeds and nuts in foods.

Well, it could be worse, I suppose. Seed & nut avoidance is just annoying, but better than winding up in the hospital, like I have before because of them.

Anyway, have a great weekend, and enjoy your popcorn, seeds, and nuts for me, okay? 🙂
