Toys, candies and snacks are something that children treasure in their childhood. What more if these come together in a box? One of my childhood snacks that I saved my daily allowances for was Ding Dang Snack.
I was overjoyed to still find one these days as it is very rare to come by. I thought it was out of production. The last Ding Dang Snack I purchase could be more than two decades ago. I hope I am not giving my age away there? When I saw it once more, I know I have to get it. Some of you may know that this product is from Malaysia.
It is a simple snacks, with some mini chocolate balls and a mystery toy. I got a Lego looking toy with movable arms and legs for this purchase. Pretty cool.
The toy was something that I used to go for and not much of the Chocolates. I remember one Ding Dang Snack cost 50 cents. They used to advertise this snack with the toys on TV. I remember they had a Godzilla looking thumb puppet and I begged my parents for one box of Ding Dang because it look so good on TV. After much begging, my father finally give in to buy me one. I felt like the happiest kid on earth.
However when I opened the box, I realized that the toy quality was not like on TV. I felt cheated. I tally my toys with the TV once the advertisement came out and it once again confirmed my finding. The lesson I learned that day, don't believe in advertisement.
Nevertheless, it still gave me much good memories as this is one snack that my peers and I used to enjoy. To sum it up this snack, I find what Forrest Gump's saying fitting.
"Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." - Forrest Gump
