Food of the Seventies

The food in this section are not STRICTLY 70s only food. We have food that were widely available for purchase DURING the 70s. This section was recently redesigned, so if you have any problems please let ChuckyG know.

Are you an 70s food expert or just totally baffled by a leftover 70s food item in your possession? We have a page for Unknown 70s Food when you can send in your pictures, or help others identify their unknown food items.

I also have a page about this for the 80s and 90s.

Paul: Found another Dick Beals commercial from 1965. The cartoon Oscar Mayer wiener one with several kids marching, and the lone dissenter who got confronted by the girl leader. It's on YouTube.

Yep, Brownie Bars were a nickel. Orange sherbet covered in chocolate on a popsicle stick. Wrapper was orange with a bear on it.

Simba Soft Drink, Comment by Bud on April 23, 2018 - Report this comment
Simba, marketed in the 1960's and 1970's, per Wikipedia. It was in Oregon by mid to late 60's and was my favorite until Dr.Pepper came along. Did not taste like Mt.Dew to me, however.

Wow, my memory of Simba was Coke's answer to Squirt? But someone suggested Fresca with sugar, might be more accurate. I thought it had a grapefruit predominate taste? Almost 50 years ago though, since I had one.

Thanks, Ilovethe80's. I'm divided between ordinary Lay's and Ruffles with Ridges.

I LOVED these crackers as a kid and would beg my mom to buy them every time we went grocery shopping. I could definitely eat the box one ditting. There has been nothing else like them. I would love to see them come back!

Love your comments Rob L... my mom loved Lay's potato chips! She rarely ate "junk food" but she loved Lay's, especially the double folded ones you would accasiondly get. She recently passed away so it is hard to comment...but always thinking of loved ones and our love of food, traditions and memories!
Bullet Ice Cream, Comment by Bob on April 21, 2018 - Report this comment
Yes it was called a Clarable Pop. A bullet pop with chocolate then banana and cherry ice-cream. But I remember buying it in Manhattan during the late 50's. I don't know if it was still around for the 70's. The same time as Melo Roll ice-cream.

eBay has a Choo Choo Charlie board game (Milton Bradley) from 1968 selling for $40. Fairly simple game for kids under 12 years. Charlie, the girl in older women's clothes, and a dog printed. Game rules printed on inner box tray. Object was to be first to reach the Good N Plenty box space, possessing three matching pink or white candy cards. From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, this was pictured with other M-B games in a sponsor billboard, airing on "Top Cat" over NBC (6/26/68). The main M-B commercials were for Twister and Life games.

From the prime time TV vault, an earlier commercial for Lay's Chips with the original Cowardly Lion, Bert Lahr (wearing a devil costume), the last one made before his death. This aired on "Malibu U" over ABC (9/1/67), the finale of a short summer musical series. Rick Nelson hosted, after 14 years of working exclusively on the "Ozzie & Harriet" series (his dad, and manager, Ozzie, forbade him to appear on any other TV show before this). Featured were the swimsuit-clad dancers. Australian Robbie Porter provided comic relief in between numbers by varied guest musical bands. Other sponsors were Pepsi, Stri-Dex and Clairol hair brightener.
