I used to LOVE that stuff! My mom and dad would never buy it, preferring the cheaper, but more impossible to use, stick butter. Which always ripped your toast into shreds. I HATED stick butter/margarine.
My cool as all get out aunt and uncle had Squeeze Parkay. They were my Godparents and everything they did, and everything they had, was awesome. I remember staying at their house and loving me some Squeeze Parkay. On toast. On potatoes. On corn on the cob. It was so easy. So good tasting.
But my parents would NEVER buy it. My dad was kind of cheap. He never bought Coke or Pepsi. Never bought name brand paper towels or napkins. Or toilet paper either. GFAMT! So he CERTAINLY wasn't buying no Squeeze Parkay. What did I think we were, rich people?!
I remember in high school thinking to myself, "man, when I move out, I'm buying whatever I want!" Because when you're in high school, you have no sense of money.
Still, when I went away to college and lived on my own, although money was tight, I always bought Squeeze Parkay. Because I LOVED it. And because I could. I bought Coke, Kraft Mac n'Cheese and Squeeze Parkay. Everything else, I stuck with store brands. Except Mayo, that was either Hellman's or Kraft because you don't mess around with Mayo. Know what I mean?
I was buttering some toast the other day. We buy tubs of whatever now. And it occurred to me that I haven't seen Squeeze Parkay in the stores. Have they stopped selling it or is it just one of the things you can't get on the left coast. Like Cracker Barrel. Or sweet tea. Or Sonny's. Or Hellman's mayonnaise.
