10 School Lunch Foods We Miss

Chicken Ring Things

Did we know what they were made out of? Not a clue. Did it matter? Of course not. Don’t act like like you didn’t slip these bad boys on your fingers and eat them off.

Pizza Sticks

Pizza? In stick form? Sign me up. I’m confused as to the thought process that went into designing these. Were they trying to make pizza portable? Isn’t pizza already pretty portable?

Corn Dogs

The nature of this beast always scared me a little. It’s like a hot dog, but even less discernible because it's completely covered in fried batter. Just slap some mustard on it. It’ll be fine.

Chicken Fried Steak

In school, my friends and I would get ridiculously excited for what we referred to as “Gravy Day,” the day when we they would serve chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes in the cafeteria. My mouth is watering as I’m typing this.

Sloppy Joes

Before Adam Sandler was passing off fart jokes as movies, he entertained us with his ode to cafeteria food, “Lunch Lady Land." And what was his food of choice? I’ll give you a hint: it wasn’t salad.

Grilled Cheese

These were always burnt. Not just slightly overcooked. They were to the point where you knew it had to be at least somewhat intentional. But it was still delicious nonetheless.

This blob, still in the shape of the scoop it came out of, was held together by the adhesive “meat sauce." Come to think of it, we might not miss this one that much.

Cinnamon Rolls

They were way more crunchy than you ever wanted a cinnamon roll to be, but they were by far the best breakfast option (I’m looking at you, mystery sausage).

Tater Tots

In one of the many things Napoleon Dynamite got right, tater tots were the bomb. They were a fantastic addition to dry hamburgers and square-shaped pizza.

And I would do anything for love, but I won’t do...oh, wait. Wrong meatloaf. Still, this catch-all for anything left at the back of the refrigerator was bound to have vegetables in it, right?
