Who Knew?!

As I have said before, I do Menus4Moms. One of the great things about the site is that they offer something sweet at the end of most meals. Nothing crazy like cakes and cookies, it usually involves some kind of fruit or fruits. Well the other night it was Orange Jello Parfaits. Super simple to make and my kids and husband LOVED them. It tasted just like an orange creamcicle only lighter. I didn't finish mine cause I have never been a huge fan of jello or pudding. It was nice none the less. Well I had to search my cupboards for something to put this creation in, I had nothing, so I improvised with drinking glasses. While I was doing a terrible job of stacking the ingredients in the glasses it got me thinking of the Tupperware kind my Mom use to have. I thought to myself they could be handy (in case you don't know, I like to pretend I am a 1950's housewife) and would be a lot safer for the kids to handle then the glass cups I was using. So like any computer savvy 1950's housewife I Googled Tupperware parfait glasses. Do you know what I found out?! That a. Tupperware no longer makes this particular product and b. that they are now considered "vintage" and cost more than I realized. Who knew Tupperware Parfait glasses were all the rage and very hard to find? Mom and Dad of all the things you have saved what in the world happened to the Tupperware?? Did you sell it on ebay for an arm and a leg?!
