I was prolly still a child when I saw them In the cafeteria cabinet. I was about 5 weeks off my 15th birthday, I lied by 2 years to get the job. I've made them ever since, but not my home made stuff, but tinned. I'm the only 1 that has them.

Well beetroot and whole onions are not usually very kid friendly, LOL!
I found whole onions (grilled and soft, with roasted bits) to be kid-friendly when I was a kid. TBH, just about anything cooked outdoors on a camping event just seemed so special to me. It was the locale, and the sense of something special. Maybe not marshmallows.... they were things we stuck at the end of sticks and watched them crisp up and burn away without ever eating them. As a kid - fun in its own right. (Never heard of s'mores until I was nearing 30 years of age, and to date I have never eaten one. So many better things to do with chocolate!)

I simply think: kids differ.

But you do realize you weren't a normal kid, right? Just kidding.
