Happiest Days

By Edward H. Donnelly

I said to the little children,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And their bright eyes opened wider In innocent amaze.
For their happiness was so perfect,
They did not know it then;
"Oh, no," they said, "there'll be happier days
When we are women and men."

I said to the youth and maiden,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And into their sparkling eyes there crept
A dreamy, far-off gaze;
And their hands sought one another,
And their cheeks flushed rosy red;
" Oh, no," they said, " there'll be happier days
For us when we are wed."

I said to the man and woman,
"You are living your happiest days,"
As they laughingly watched together
Their baby's cunning ways.
"These days are days of labor.
They can hardly be our best;
There'll be happier days when the children are grown,
And we have earned our rest."

I said to the aged couple,
"You are living your happiest days,"
Your children do you honor,
You have won success and praise.
" With a peaceful look they answered,
"God is good to us, that's true: But we think there are happier days for us
In the life we're going to."

Betty Crocker changed our lives for the better.  Before most of us could really express our feelings other than YUM, we were gifted with the incredible invention of Dunkaroos. They were seriously the best cookie snack known to man kind, with ten small cookies that were to be dunked into the most perfect, creamy icing.

If you’re a ’90s kid, then you’ve surely dreamed, hoped, and prayed to find them again. Well, today is your very lucky day, because they do in fact still exist.  General Mills unfortunately stopped producing them in the United States in 2012, but there are some websites that will ship them to you.  They can also be smuggled from Canada. Oh Canada.

While smuggling sounds like a tricky and illegal process, General Mills has actually been encouraging it with their site Smugglaroos.  It’s a platform for Canadians who feel so sorry for their American friends that are Dunkaroo-less.  The only problem is that they are sold for shockingly high prices, since Dunkaroos have become such a rare entity.

Some other options include purchasing them from third party sellers, such as Amazon who sells Chocolate Frosted Dunkaroos for $12.55, and the vanilla version for $19.99. Buffalo Sponge Candy, offers a more cost efficient option at $5.39 for regular Dunkaroos.

Despite the cost, who can actually resist this nostalgic treat?
