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.

10:30 candy bar, Comment by Greywolf on August 13, 2018 - Report this comment
Holy cats. I was just sitting here and reminiscing about candy from the 1970s, and thought of the 10:30 bar. Loved those things. There was so much more candy variety back in the '70s. Now it seems like the market is dominated by Hershey and Mars. I'm excited when I see something on the shelf like a Big Cherry or an Abba-Zaba... and don't get me started on the death of Neccos.
Caravelle Candy Bar, Comment by ANDY on August 13, 2018 - Report this comment
HI Everyone, I just wrote a letter to Hershey Chocolate Co. about the Caravelle bar, they took over Peter Paul back in the 80's. there response was ,if they get enough interest on bringing back the Caravelle bar , they possibly could if we can get all of us and other to respond ,contact Hershey on this , it just might happen. so let get the wheel rolling, we need thousands of thousands of us candy junkies to bug them. let's make this happen. Thank you.

Cinnamon Danish, Comment by Michelle on August 12, 2018 - Report this comment
This was my favourite candy bar! Whenever I told someone about it, no one seemed to remember! I used to walk to the variety store with my mom to get it in the summer as a treat. Loved it so much and I remember not being able to find it one day. It was so good! Reminds me of my childhood! Bring it back!!
Willy Wonka Super Scrunch Bar, Comment by KC Bri on August 12, 2018 - Report this comment
Oompas were my favorite with the Scrunch a close second. STILL remember the time I went into TG&Y and the Wonka bars were 10 for a buck instead of 15 cents! Walking home with ten bars in my sack, I felt RICH. Here’s how bad I have the Wonka bug. In ‘89, I had a dream of wandering into an empty factory. In a dimly lit corner was an unopened case of Oompas. Can’t tell you how happy I was in the dream as I approached the case. Then I woke up😞. Mind you, this was nearly 15 years after I’d had any Wonka candy. GOD, I miss them along with Dolly Madison Googles and GM Pizza Spins! It was a much more innocent time...
Honey Comb Cereal, Comment by Rob Lambert on August 12, 2018 - Report this comment
From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, a TV spot with Super Jets (rubber band launched) toys inside Honey Comb boxes, along with a mail-in offer for different play/sports balls. This aired on "Cattanooga Cats" over ABC (10/10/69). As feature segment of its own show, the Cattanooga Cats traveled abroad in an old bus to different concert venues. Leader was Country (Bill Callaway), Kitty Jo (Joan Bennett), drummer Groovy (Casey Kasem) and Scoots (Jim Begg). A zealous, autograph-seeking female cat was Chessie (Julie Bennett), whom the Cats tried to dodge in each episode. In the original hour format, "It's the Wolf" and "Around the World In 79 days" and " Motor Mouse" were fillers, plus music videos by the Cats. Part of ABC's Super Saturday theme for part of the 1969-70 season. Barbie and Hot Wheels, Alpha Bits and Super Sugar Crisp (Archie cereal box records) also sponsored. In 1970-71, "Cattanooga Cats" reruns aired separately from the other cartoons on Sunday mornings.

Little Lunch, Comment by Cynthia on August 11, 2018 - Report this comment
I thought I was losing my mind. I remember blueberry Little Lunch when we lived in the SF Bay area, mid 70s. I loved it, and I remember the jingle. No one I've asked has ever heard of it, and this is the first online reference I've seen. thank you!
Bud's Daddy Bubble Gum, Comment by Gordon on August 10, 2018 - Report this comment
The Cherry flavor was king, but the grape and original were just as wonderful
