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.

Koogle, Comment by Johnny S. on August 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I remember when Koogle first came out, it was introduced in a major blitz type campaign. As kids, we all had a flavor that we liked, mine was the chocolate peanut butter. As I recall though, it was a little more expensive, and since it didn't stand the test of time, I'm guessing the price became an issue. It was a spread that didn't really require jelly though. Perhaps if they'd said it was the sandwich spread of the astronauts, it would still be around, 'cos kids always wanted whatever the astronauts had!

Kentucky Fried Chicken's Ribs, Comment by Paul L. on August 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I drove from Elk Grove Vlg., IL to Hanover Park, IL on my lunch hour for these fabulous ribs! I've often remembered them fondly and wish they were still available. Not many folks remember them, but this site proves they were a hit! Bring 'em back!!!
Hostess Potato Chips-fruit Flavored, Comment by Rick on August 22, 2016 - Report this comment
Kezzi - thats funny! Yeah, I can't find a pic either. Guess Hostess did a good job getting rid of the evidence. But yes - I do remember them. When I heard about them I had to try them out - so tried the grape. I also remember doing the `blahhh blahh ewww' with the tongue hanging out in disgust...

A million calories of ice cream have gone through my Great Shakes cup since the demise of the packets!It's the only way to mix up a chocolate shake.
Punch (candy), Comment by Kristye on August 21, 2016 - Report this comment
My sisters and I would get punch candy at a little store at Yost Lake in Stillwater, OK. We have been looking for it for many years. So sad to hear it has been discontinued

Banana Dreamboats, Comment by Cris on August 20, 2016 - Report this comment
Shelley, I don't know anyone else that remembers my favorite childhood snack cake. The moist spice cake with raisins and just the perfect amount of frosting. Not too sweet, and from a child's mind, seemed somehow adult and exotic. I remember it disappeared for a while and then found it again but that wasn't to last. Haven't tasted anything quite the same since the early 70s. Thank you for returning to me my long lost love.

Hoffman's sodas, Comment by Carla on August 20, 2016 - Report this comment
I was told as a kid in the 50's that my family developed the soda in Germany and one of the brothers came to the US and started it up here. The family name was Hoffmann but the final n was dropped.

Aspen, Comment by Pirate John on August 19, 2016 - Report this comment
I'm so happy to have found this site. I also remember love and miss Aspen. I was so bummed when I knew it was going to be discontinued. Since then I think about it now and again. :( But REJOICE Aspen lovers of the world! For I have found a way to duplicate the great taste we all know, love and miss. It is so simple it will amaze you, and does not require a time machine. Go to walmart and get the ice pops/freezer pops, they have a few different flavors in a bag. Get 7-Up, while there, Go home and put 7-Up in fridge till chilled. Get a mug and put 2 1/2 green apple freezer pops in the glass. (mine is a 32OZ mug) Add ice to keep cold, add 7-Up, and sit down before taking a drink because you will be blown away. Enjoy, and PEACE!
Sergeant Top-It, Comment by JimP on August 19, 2016 - Report this comment
I can't believe there is no information on the internet about Sergeant Top-it. I was stationed at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO in the mid 1960's and the Sergeant Top-it commercial was on the TV several times every evening. When I returned to Michigan and told my then fiancé about it, she said yeah, sure! I never tried to buy any in a store and now, 50 years later, it's like it never existed! There must be some archives at some TV stations somewhere! "HUT TWO THREE FOUR, SERGEANT TOP-IT AT YOUR STORE! WHAT IS SERGEANT TOP-IT FOR? TOPPING ICE CREAM'S WHAT IT'S FOR! HUT TWO THREE FOUR, GET IT AT YOUR FAVORITE STORE!" Somebody must have a record of this product in their files somewhere in this country!
Apple Beer, Comment by Malcolm on August 19, 2016 - Report this comment
I remember buying this everyday after school just before I went to practice. I told my wife it existed and she didn't believe me. Love the date and the flavor.
Spoon Candy, Comment by Michele on August 18, 2016 - Report this comment
One of my favorite dessert as a child. Wonder I'd vanilla pudding with hard shell chocolate sauce would taste like it?

Bullet Ice Cream, Comment by John on August 18, 2016 - Report this comment
There must be something we can do! I loved those and I want them...and I'm a diabetic! The original maker should either make them again or sell the mold and recipe for a nice sum...PLEASE!!!
