UMass dining is #1 again!

Post by PintOGuinness » Tue Aug 07, 2018 8:04 am

They've come a long way from the 80's=90's chicken pucks, beef strudel, and mystery meat!

We've had similar discussions before, but the food in that era was a lot better than what we had in the late 60's. Even very hungry 19 year olds were throwing food away.

In the mid 70s the DC introduced me to textured soy protein, that sounded so yummy.

I ate in the dining commons from fall 83 to spring 85. I loved the food. In my house growing up, we didn't have multiple choices for every meal and we didn't have unlimited amounts of it. I went from 175 to 215 my freshman year.

Blame it on the food... I'm sure that is all you consumed, right :wink:

Always liked the food at UMass, even though I had heard horror stories from my cousins and siblings of my friends.
