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.

Purple Passion Soft Drink, Comment by Cin on May 28, 2015 - Report this comment
Loved IT! Remember buying it at Krogers in 1972. We would put it in our Igloo Cooler and take it on road trips.

Pizza Spins, Comment by Kenron on May 28, 2015 - Report this comment
The one food item from my childhood that I would love to revisit is Pizza Spins. I could never eat them without consuming the entire box. Thanks for allowing me to see I am not alone.

I worked for Burger Chef for two years (1968-1970)at four different locations in El Paso, TX. Started out at $1.00/hour and was bumped up to $1.50/hour when I became night manager.

Camp Steaks, Comment by Chael on May 26, 2015 - Report this comment
Just found Camp Steaks while I was shopping at an Albertson's in Reseda Ca. I remembered my mom cooking these steaks for dinner as a child and grabbed em as soon as I saw them. Delicious! What a history of these steaks ive learned through this thread. What a treat. :)
RainBlo, Comment by Rob Lambert on May 26, 2015 - Report this comment
Leaf also sold Rain-Blo gumballs in machines for a penny each. In stores, Leaf also sold little malted milk balls, five wrapped in clear cellophane, for a nickel. eBay once had a Rain-Blow gum machine card (cartoon boy blowing bubble, from 1965) for auction. Only worth about five bucks.
Red Candy Lipsticks, Comment by Clara W on May 26, 2015 - Report this comment
We bought these at the penny candy store, a short walk from Holcomb School in Southington, CT. They were deliciously flavored and the texture was chalk-like. You had to bite into them. They were NOT nougat, taffy, or anything soft. Opaque and dense. This was in the late 1950s (by 1961 I was in high school and done with "childish things.") As one poster said, I, too, would like to taste these one more time. You'd think someone would jump on this!
King Cole BBQ Potato Chips, Comment by Trish on May 25, 2015 - Report this comment
King Cole BBQ chips always makes me think of my dad. As we were growing up, he would only buy that brand and would share them with us at night while watching TV. I'd love to think that they would produce them again as I haven't found anything that compares. They were definitely the best around.
McDonalds Steak Sandwich, Comment by Phoebe on May 25, 2015 - Report this comment
Got this sandwich everyday when I worked in Jenkintown Pa. It was addicting! They should bring it back occasionally. I just had that new Sirloin burger and was seriously disappointed, wasn't worth the price. Bring back the McSteak!
Rc Cola, Comment by karen C. on May 25, 2015 - Report this comment
Yes! I remember that song and remember watching that commercial as a kid and wanting to be just like her when I grew up--riding off into the sunset on the back of a motorcyle! Every once in a while I look for it on YouTube, but so far no luck. ("My face is freckled from the sun, got a strong wing in my hair, Bike feels warm and I'm far from home but I sure don't have a care. Well, I'll get off this bike someday, maybe live the way they do, but I'm gonna find some other way--heck I'm only twenty two. Me and my RC, me and my RC, 'cause what's good enough for other folks, ain't good enough for me...") Glad someone else remembers this image!
Reading all these fond memories of my beloved PDQ brought a tear to my eye.I miss the stuff every day even after all these years.I loved them all but there was nothing quite like the eggnog.
Chippo's, Comment by Elissa on May 24, 2015 - Report this comment
I was snacking on some waffle textured chips and remembered Chipos. Those were my favorite chips, ever. I decided to do a search and found this site. So sad that Chipos aren't around any more.
