Instant foods have become a pillar in every day diets. When you’re running behind and can’t find the time to cook a meal, simply throwing something pre-made in the microwave can make all the world of difference for you and your family.
Bon Appetit created a new 100 year video showcasing the rich history behind instant foods dating all the way back to the 1920s. In the video, a panel of kids try a variety of quick and microwavable foods you don’t need to spend much time cooking up.
Notable dishes include popcorn, microwave dinners, astronaut foods, instant pancake mix, Hamburger Helper, and Velveeta cheese. Essentially all the food groups you need for a balanced on-the-go lifestyle.
Man, it really makes us feel old when these kids say they don’t recognize some of the foods they’re trying.
