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.

Tigers Milk Powder Drink, Comment by mgrone on June 30, 2016 - Report this comment
In 1975 when my son was born we had tried every available baby formula on the market to no avail, he was one of those babies that would protrude his formula across the room. His pediatrician finally told me to go to a health food store and get tiger's milk. It was the only thing that worked.

Hoffman's sodas, Comment by Country Paul on June 28, 2016 - Report this comment
I grew up in New Rochelle, NY, in the '50s and remember Hoffman's Cream and Black Cherry flavors. Great stuff! Soda tasted better then because it was made with real sugar, not high fructose corn syrup (yecch!). Somehow, I thought it was a national, not regional, brand. I was wondering when and why they folded - squeezed off the shelves by the national brands, perhaps? Re: jingles, I remember two. "The prettiest girl...." came to mind tonight, which is what led me here. The original is a folk-type song with "cider" instead of "Hoffman." It was a 1953 hit (with "soda") for Guy Mitchell, written (or co-opted) by a folkie named Paul Campbell. The other one is the "university/thirs-i-ty" jingle; I remember it as a march with some hokey cartoons on the TV ad and also as a radio ad. Thanks to everyone who posted; you made my night! And if the person who wants to kickstart it gets serious, let me know; I'm in various places on line under this name.

Boo-Berry Cereal, Comment by shelleybeanz on June 28, 2016 - Report this comment
the cereals taste different now days. booberry cereal doesn't stay crispy and turns into a soggy mess that tastes like plastic. Same thing with Cap'n Crunch peanut butter cereal. Doesn't have that toasty peanut butter taste anymore, and quickly turns into a plastic- like mush when its in milk.. No thanks, I'll guess memories will stay memories....
Caravelle Candy Bar, Comment by Amy on June 27, 2016 - Report this comment
I was a figure skater during the 1970's and I would sometimes get stage fright in front of large crowds, so my coach suggested to have a favorite taste lingering in my mouth when I took the ice to calm my nerves, and I would take a little nibble on a Caravelle bar. I don't think it ever helped with the stage fright--lol--but I sure did like the flavor and I came here to see if it is still available. I'm sorry to see that it isn't :-(

Purple Passion Soft Drink, Comment by Mike T on June 27, 2016 - Report this comment
I clearly remember Purple Passion and Mother Fletcher's Sooper Joose, both made at the Canada Dry plant in East Rochester. I'd love to have a can of each to display. If not, then just to photograph.
Space Food Sticks, Comment by K Hicks on June 27, 2016 - Report this comment
Can't believe I finally found this on line. I have a snack that I eat sometimes that made me think these so I looked it up. Today they are the texture of Stabilyze bars which are sold as a way to stabilize your blood sugar. I don't remember where I got them but I remember my Mom wouldn't let me have them in my lunch. The new ones come in a different shape and they are mint chocolate flavor.

a friend and I used to also buy them in the 70's, on our way to the strawberry patc in NC, can't find them anywhere. they're sooo good, not too sweet. will try to find a place to order them.
Glad I'm not the only one. No one I know remembers it. I too have the jingle stuck in my head...lok
Now & Later, Comment by Michelle on June 26, 2016 - Report this comment
My all-time favorite candy and liked most of the flavors. My favorites were green apple, grape, cherry and watermelon. I remember my mom getting them for me at a public swimming pool snack stand as well as the 7-eleven stores..lol!
Post Fortified Oat Flakes Cereal, Comment by Nancy on June 26, 2016 - Report this comment
This was the best cereal ever made. What a mistake to stop making it. I don't even eat cereal anymore now that this is not available anymore. I sure wish it would be made again
