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.

Good N' Fruity, Comment by Rob Lambert on February 21, 2018 - Report this comment
There was an early Good N Fruity TV spot with Choo Choo Charlie from 1970, with Dick Beals doing the voice. Paul brought up excellent points in the Good N Plenty blog. Found out that Beals was like Gary Coleman and Billy Barty: His body didn't grow normally as he aged. Beals lived from 1927 to 2012. Even into his 70s, he was voicing boy characters. He worked on "Davey & Goliath" (Clokey/Lutheran TV) until 1964. Beals also voiced Ernie, a cartoon boy who pitched US Savings Bonds in Ad Council PSA's. He carried a $75 Kennedy bond in a 1965 spot. Beals also worked on cartoon shows like "Birdman" and "Frankenstein Jr."

Apple was my favorite. You would think after all these years, Kraft/Nabisco would bring them back to a few stores or even online for purchase.
Keebler's German Chocolate Cookies, Comment by Baby on February 21, 2018 - Report this comment
I am from Claypool AZ. I bought these German Chocolate Cookies from Safeway. One day I went to buy them and they were GONE. I am surprised other people remember them. They were the best. I wish these companies would bring these back. They keep making the worst cookies. 02.21.2018

Paul: Remember the "Roger Ramjet" cartoons from 1965? Dick Beals voiced two of the American Eagle kids, Dan and Yank, who assisted Roger (Gary Owens) in fighting baddies like Noodles Romanoff and the Solenoid Robots (Dave Ketchum, who also narrated each episode).

Kathleen, you and thousands of other Pepchew addicts had the same thought.

Hostess Ho-Ho's, Comment by Rob Lambert on February 20, 2018 - Report this comment
Peanut Butter cream Ho Ho's sold on a test market basis in 1973. Many compared this with the Reese's Cups. The new Hostess company brought these back recently. Continental first introduced original Ho Ho's in 1969, competing with Little Debbie Swiss Rolls.

Does anybody remember the peanut butter ho ho's? I vaguely recall them being available for a limited time in the late 60's/early 70's.
Corn Suckers, Comment by D Hall on February 20, 2018 - Report this comment
I was a little kid, it was the mid 60's. I remember regularly walking with friends to Cut Rate Grocery on the corner of West 9th St & Hwy 6 in Hearne Tx and buying a Blackburn All Day Corn Sucker for a nickle. The grape ones were the best.

Druthers Restaurant, Comment by Cody on February 18, 2018 - Report this comment
I live in Campbellsville, KY. And I believe it's the last one. They are busy when they're open. And boy there food is good. People come from miles to come to the druther's here. They even open at 2:30AM in the morning, but they close around 7-8PM.
Ozark BBQ Potato Chips, Comment by Mary on February 18, 2018 - Report this comment
Chesty (Ozark Hillbilly) Barbecue Potato Chips were the best of all time! Haven't found one that we liked as well since. I read on this page someone said another chip company should unearth the recipe and make them. I agree! Would be nice to have them back on the market!!!!! My brother use to eat them while watching Creature Feature :) Most times "Original is Better" The quality of a lot of things have gone down hill over the years...what happened to "if it ain't broke don't fix it?:)
