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.

Welch's Candy Bar., Comment by Doug on July 04, 2015 - Report this comment
Grew up in Mass. The Frappe bar was my absolute favorite candy of all time. I wish someone would start making it again.

Mars Bar (original), Comment by Nora on July 03, 2015 - Report this comment
I too loved the original Mars bars with almonds and white nougat covered in milk chocolate. Just recently I was told they make them in Europe. I ordered some to be sent to me in the U.S. and was very disappointed that they were not the same as I remember them. I did a search and found this forum. I wish they'd bring back the original Mars bars in the U.S.!

Taco Doritos, Comment by John Steen on July 02, 2015 - Report this comment
Was 1986 the year they added sour cream in the original Doritos Taco Flavor and ruined them? I was very upset when they did this.
Coke Bottles, Comment by Rob Lambert on July 01, 2015 - Report this comment
Time warp time again, friends! These wax bottles were named Nik-L-Nip. Going back to about 1935, and now still available (Tootsie Roll sells them). Nik-L-Nips sold for a nickel (the wax was the costlier side of the product). Most of those little wax bottles were of the same contour shape as a Coca-Cola bottle, but none of the syrup flavors resembled Coke, nor did Coke endorse it. Interesting...
Sundown Suppers TV Dinners, Comment by Cookie Monster on July 01, 2015 - Report this comment
Several people have mentioned the frosted animal shaped cookies of the '70s into at least the early '80s. I'd swear they were a 'baby' cookie made by Gerber. I recall the red/white box, and the YELLOW (not pink) frosting. They were delicious. Don't recall seeing them on store shelves past the mid '80s. It's odd, though, I can't find ANYthing about them via the internet...which is odd if indeed they were a Gerber product. Then again, I remember thin mint Girl Scout cookies being YELLOW on the inside long before the dark colored breading they use now.
Wampum Corn Chips, Comment by Doris on July 01, 2015 - Report this comment
I have also tried the Trader Joe's corn chip and do believe that it is very similar to the Wampun taste. I grew up in Downey and also loved the Regal Crown Sour candies..yum!

Koogle, Comment by CherylB on July 01, 2015 - Report this comment
Another child of the seventies, I used to love the banana flavored Koogle. Just google Koogle banana peanut butter, and you will see pics of old jars.

Google Peanut Butter, Comment by Paul on July 01, 2015 - Report this comment
I live in Canada and I remember back in the mid 80s my father had a box of old jars and I swear one of them was for jelly/jam called Google with googly eyes for the logo. Could I have mistaken the K for a G? I don't think so.
Sundown Suppers TV Dinners, Comment by Shadda123 on June 30, 2015 - Report this comment
Back in the 60's I think, we used to get a tube shaped package (kinda like the ones peanuts come in) of tiny balls of some kind of puffed up kernel only they weren't really hard but crunchy sort of?? I can't remember really what they were but they came in flavors. 1 kind was a little spicy the other was just plain.
Tuna Twist, Comment by Deana on June 29, 2015 - Report this comment
I was just a kid in the 70's but this stuff made a lasting impression on me. I've thought about it over the years (35-40yrs) wishing I could buy it, make it. I loved it -- I remember being disappointed when my mom told me it was discontinued. I'm kind of excited to find a link with information online about it. haha BRING BACK TUNA TWIST!!!

My husband and I remember getting frozen Milkshake candy bars after swimming at the pool's concession stand in Tarkio, MO. Would love to find them again.
