Last week, we asked a simple question: "Why are people so obsessed with LAUSD's coffee cake?"

Perhaps unsurprisingly, LAist readers had a lot of feelings about the subject. Mostly they were nostalgic.

But not always.

Several of you shared stories from the past...

...and the present.

Others fondly recalled their favorite school cafeteria foods.

We have no idea what a fiesta stick is!

No comment.

We can't officially support crime, but you gotta do what you gotta do.
