Things which as a child you thought were the height of sophistication

When I was about 10, I once ordered the “Quindici” (a “hot & spicy” to those of you not from the North East of England) from the local pizza shop on takeaway night. My brother and sister probably went for some dweeb option (yer margerita, yer pepperoni) but I thought my choice (bolognese and jalapenos - together at last) was the epitome of suaveness and must be what they ate in Italy every day. I have since been informed that this is not the case.
Anyone got anything in a similar vein?

Still think this tbh.

Something Vienetta-adjacent:

When they were first introduced, there was something distinctly posh about ice-cream versions of Mars bars and Twixes and things. They weren’t just 99p-from-the-corner-shop deals, they were a little bit pricier and a little bit unusual. Distinctly remember thinking they were very posh indeed.
