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.

Pepchew , Comment by Jane on January 24, 2020 - Report this comment
Check out www.badduckcaramel. I found them on Amazon and purchased one of their pep chew bars. So close to the original, but not enough mint. The bars are quite thick too. They're located in B.C.

Just relaxing in my recliner, enjoying the company of my animals and my husband, watching an episode of Green Acres on Roku and thinking of Pizza Spins.

Hoffman's sodas, Comment by Larry r on January 21, 2020 - Report this comment
Mid1950's. Jamaica Queens NY. Hoffman family members lived in Jamaica Estates. Our Cub Scout pack had meetings in their home. Close to and just north of what is now Northern State Pky. Wish I could recall the boys name in that family. I think it was Bob. Always had their soda on hand. Great memories. If anyone can fill in the blanks, much appreciated

Oh, yeah! Keaton's trademarks were the straw hat and baggy pants. His Milky Way commercial was from 1961, about the time he co-starred with Stanley Adams in the "Twilight Zone" episode about time travel. On audio, I came across another Sugar Crisp commercial from 1962 with Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam playing baseball. Sam pitches and Bugs hits a home run. Sam gets pissed, and starts firing a rifle (in the crowded ball park). A Roger Maris bat is offered as commercial ends. Not currently on YouTube.

Hi, Paul! Here's more cartoon commercials you might like on YouTube. First, "Post Super Sugar Crisp Blob and Son Litter Bugs" plus "Air Pollution" and "Water Pollution." These aired during "Cattanooga Cats" on ABC (3/28/70). Sugar Bear becomes ecology nut, and stops The Blob from destroying the planet in petty ways by air, water and ground. Also, "Vintage Animated Kool Aid Commercial Bugs and Elmer's Favorite Drink." Aired during "Bugs Bunny Show" on ABC (10/2/65). Bugs sneaks into Elmer's house to swipe Kool Aid, also introduces Kool Pops with an owl. Also, "Milky Way candy Bar Ed Wynn," aired during the "Beatles" cartoon show on ABC (11/6/65). Filmed about a year before Wynn's death. Lastly, "Bugs Bunny Show Commercials>' A short compilation of ads for Tang, Post Alpha bits and sugar Crisp which aired during the prime time edition of "Bugs Bunny Show" from 1960-62. Gunfire was part of the humor in these ads.
