Kid Snacks That Should Not Exist

April 05, 2014 2 min read

I’m about to slightly ruin your childhood, sorry in advance. Jezebel posted an article about all of the crazy food that we used to eat as children, you know, before we knew any better, and it is a cringe-worthy trip down memory lane. There is a long list and a link to an even longer list of all of the “Little Debbie Snack Foods” that make every healthy bone in my body shudder. Here are some of the ones that I personally remember from my childhood: Breadsticks 'N' Cheese Dip:Dodai Stewart, the author of the Jezebel article was bang on when she talks about the 90s’ serious lack of conjunctions. Let me start by saying that I was never A) allowed to eat anything like this and B) would never eat the “cheese” portion of that, ever, strong emphasis with my quotation mark usage, since the “cheese” was more accurately orange cheese-like goop. foodsthatshouldnotexist5 Nesquik:powdered flavoured sugar to make milk more attractive to kids. The added bonus is that you get quite the arm workout trying to make that sugary goodness actually adhere to milk. It took A LOT of stirring. Another thing I was never allowed to eat. foodsthatshouldnotexist6 Bubble Tape:ok, this one I actually did eat, and man was it a treat. I would save up my allowance to get one of these bad boys and either eke out the limp roll of tape, making it last an entire month, or eat the entire thing at once, adding more tape to my mouth as soon as the flavor of the last one ran out (which took about 2 seconds). foodsthatshouldnotexist7 Lunchables:Another food that we never had, and one that I considered at a young age to be “rich kid food” (I don’t even know). Since I was in charge of making my own lunch since about the age of 8, I was always jealous when a classmate of mine would whip out his perfectly divided little lunchable, each food with it’s own separate little cubby so that nothing would touch, jealous of their blissful ignorance of not knowing the hardships of peanut buttering your own bread. foodthatshouldnotexist3 Mmmm, refined sugar, artificially flavoured, non-healthy goodness. Actually, going through this list, I realize that although I remember most of these products (the ones I don’t remember I’ll just blame on being a poor deprived Canadian) I didn’t really eat most of this junk. I was allowed to have pop tarts on Christmas, which was a big deal, but that ended once I became a vegetarian at age 12. Other than that I mainly lived on Cheerios and saltines with peanut butter as my kid snacks. Occasionally I could barter homework help for a pack of Dunkaroos, or save up my allowance for a Jos Louis, but other than that my childhood snacking was fairly healthy - good job parents of mine!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
