    Retro food rocks!! Especially Prawn Cocktail. I wonder why a retro food revival has begun – is it because younger people are now discovering these for the first time? As previously they were in fashion before their time?

    I think it’s because everyone who was growing up when they were fashionable are now old enough to indulge in a bit of childhood nostalgia and have jobs were they can make everyone else indulge in them to. The Transformers car ad works along similar lines.
