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.

Toaster Pizzas, Comment by Lisa on May 24, 2016 - Report this comment
I remember them quite clearly but forget the name. They were round and sometimes you would have to put them in the toaster one and a half times. The outer crust was crunchy and the inside was orange with sauce and cheese. I think of them and brown edge wafers every time I go grocery shopping. I look for them both as if they are going to appear. Why do they always stop selling the good stuff like Burger King tacos.
Banana Flip, Comment by Judy on May 23, 2016 - Report this comment
What I wouldn't give for a banana flip right now. My all time favorite. I would lick the filling from the edge and then eat the cake. Why can't they bring them back? Somebody must have the recipe somewhere. It would be a money maker for them.
Sara Lee Frozen Cupcakes 6 Pack, Comment by Colleen on May 23, 2016 - Report this comment
Absolutely loved these as a kid. My Dad used to be these and the frozen jelly donuts and honey buns. He was a real sweet eater. The only other cupcakes I loved were the Entemann's holiday cupcakes. They were the bomb.
Henry's Hamburgers, Comment by Doug Muchow on May 21, 2016 - Report this comment
My first job was at Henry's drive-in in Moorhead, Mn, in 1967. I was only 13 years old and could only work during the daytime,on weekends until I turned 15, then I would get to work at 8:00 a.m. In the morning to filter the fryers and clean the floors and sterilize the shake machine, because the senior high and college workers wanted to sleep in after partying on Friday and sat nite. I met a great group of guys and worked for a woman manager named Agnes Bina.
Toastettes, Comment by Kai on May 20, 2016 - Report this comment
Those who say Toastettes were around til the early 00's are correct. In my 90's childhood, we always had Toastettes in the pantry-- and they were SOOOOOO MUCH BETTER than this pop-tarts crap. The pastry is crap, the filling is crap and the frosting is even worse. I won't even consider buying them again-- they're terrible! Toastettes had the perfect crust with the large granulated bits of sugar on the top... all warm with a little melted butter (MMMMMM) :-( Please, please, please, please bring Toastettes back!
Baby Ruth Ice Cream Bars, Comment by Christophe on May 20, 2016 - Report this comment
Ha. I spent 2 months in Florida on a student exchange in the late 70s selling these ice creams. I used to live on them, plus beer, and there has never been anything like them in England - shame.

Tuna Twist, Comment by Karen on May 19, 2016 - Report this comment
OMG!!! I can't believe I finally found info on Tuna Twist. I recall having this as a young child (under 10) and when I asked my mother about it she didn't recall such a product. I'm 49 now and over the years have asked several people if they've heard of it and no one had. Now I know I wasn't Good to read all the comments about Tuna Twist.
