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.

Shake-a-puddin', Comment by Dave on July 26, 2016 - Report this comment
Oh yes, shake-a-puddin' in the late 60's. It was a neat camping treat, I remember using very cold water and drinking more as a shake than puddin'. The colder the water, the less well it mixed, and was often chocolately gritty. But tasty grit.
No Jelly Candy Bar, Comment by Amy Hartley on July 26, 2016 - Report this comment
I loved this candy bar and I, too, thought I was crazy because no one else remembers it. I wish they were still on the market. They were better than Reese's.
Keebler's German Chocolate Cookies, Comment by Daven on July 26, 2016 - Report this comment
I loved these from my childhood too. Happy to see others miss them too. Agree with above if Keebler has no plans to make them again they should share the recipe. Best cookie ever!

Bundt Cake Mix (Pillsbury), Comment by Valarie in Memphis, TN on July 26, 2016 - Report this comment
i loved the pillbury chocolate macaroon bundt cake. My mom made it when I was growing up. I have great childhood memories about that cake. I wonder if I used devil's food cake mix and added coconut extract to white cake mix for the middle, if it would resemble the old chocolate macaroon bundt cake. Probably not....

Glad I fund this site. Those Knickerbocker Jellies were fantastic! For a while in the late 50s/early 60s I couldn't find then I was in a candy store one day and there they were! I bought several whole boxes over the next year or two. Others came close but not as good. Please bring them back!!
Corn Suckers, Comment by Dena O'Gwin Ball on July 25, 2016 - Report this comment
Oh I am so happy to see this site. I have thought about these suckers for years but wondered if I just dreamed them up. I truly didn't think so but I have found no one who remembers them. I would love to see a picture of them.
Winner Suckers, Comment by Dave S. on July 25, 2016 - Report this comment
They were made by Pearson Candy Company, Inc. out of Culver City, California not the Pearson Candy Co from the midwest. Used to get them at the little league snack shack back in 1960-1963. You can Wiki it.
Rc Cola, Comment by Sam on July 25, 2016 - Report this comment
Yes! Thank you Karen C. 2015. I have been singing partial lyrics to the motorcycle girl with freckles for years! I too used to dream of being like her when I grew up! I could never remember all of the lyrics. Thank you for providing the right ones! Sam
Kentucky Fried Chicken's Ribs, Comment by Donald on July 24, 2016 - Report this comment
Why does KFC chicken not taste anywhere near as good as it did in the 1970's? WE had Kenny Kings which may be part of it. In the 1970's you could taste and smell the herbs and spices. Today KFC is just bland. I wish they would go back to that recipe. Someone said the chicken used to be pressure cooked, but that takes to long now. Are there any stores that use the old method?
Bar 6, Comment by Ian on July 24, 2016 - Report this comment
Fantastic chocolate bar, much missed, like Jelly Tots. Best washed down with a cold glass of Beep.
Baffle Bar, Comment by Daniel Slade on July 24, 2016 - Report this comment
I absolutely loved the Baffle Bar. I am 66 years old and I remember when I was a kid and a teenager I used to look forward to eating one. I remember eating one while watching reruns of My Little Margie. Someone ought to buy the recipe and start making it again. If they can't get English black walnuts maybe another type of walnut would do.
Carnation Breakfast Squares, Comment by FREDERIC KRAUS on July 24, 2016 - Report this comment
BREAKFAST SQUARES WERE THE BEST OF THE BEST TILL THIS DAY. I HAVE TASTE ALL KINDS OF PRODUCTS AROUND THE WORLD AND BKFT SQ'S STILL BY FAR ARE THE GREATEST. SOME IN MARKETING SHOULD JUMP ON THIS WOULD BE A $BILLION PROFIT IN 2YRS. I REMEMBER THE STORES COULD NOT KEEP THEM ON THE SELF. I WOULD STORE HOP TO FILL MY WEEKLY FAMILIES NEEDS. I REMEMBER ALL THE SOLDIERS LOVE THEM. IS IT SOMETHING THAT WHEN SO MANY LIKE A PRODUCT, BE IT FOOD, CLOTHES OR JUST ANYTHING THE COMPANY OR COMPANIES STOP MAKING IT. PLEASE WAKE UP AND SMELL THE DEMANDS. THANK YOU. BREAKFAST SQUARES #1 FAN.
