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.

Guy's Potato Chips, Comment by Steve on January 16, 2017 - Report this comment
I grew up in Omaha, NE in the 60's and 70's and I remember the Kitty Clover and Guy's potato chips. It also seems to me that they once had a toy inside the two-pack that was a little plastic mouse that had some wax and invisible thread that you would press into the bottom of the plastic mouse, then wrap the other end of the invisible thread to your shirt button a couple of times, then move your hands (palms up) away from you to make the mouse appear to be walking over your hands. Does anyone else remember that? It would be so cool to find one now to show my grandkids.

Yumbo and Whaler, Comment by Donna on January 14, 2017 - Report this comment
The original Yumbo was thinly sliced ham with melted cheese poured over the top on an egg bun. It was in a yellow styrofoam container. They were a yummy mess and other than the whopper it was the best item on Burger Kings menu. They really messed up when they dropped it from the menu. All the other sandwiches mentioned were for the breakfast menu. My family went to Burger King on a regular basis just for the Yumbo. Bad move Burger King. If your going to bring a sandwich back, do the right one!
Hoffman's sodas, Comment by Marsha on January 14, 2017 - Report this comment
I went to school with Mitchell Hoffman, P.S. 108, in the Bronx, in the 1950's. Great school. His father was part of the Hoffman soda family. Poor child had hemophelia. Father gave soda out to the whole school. Don't know what happened to the family.

Loved PDQ Eggnog(my favorite). So many people don't remember this. It would be nice if Ovaltine, Hershey's, or nestle would make it again

Cake Frosting Mix In A Box, Comment by Jane on January 12, 2017 - Report this comment
Thank you Sunny! I am thrilled to have this since I have a cake which uses the dry mix as a ribbon, and was going to attempt to recreate it myself. I would have not known to use flour. I am sure this could be used as a formula using other flavorings and powdered sugar.
