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.

Chum Gum, Comment by Fritzi on October 14, 2019 - Report this comment
Oh why can’t they bring back Chum Gum like they have brought back so many other old time candies?! Chum Gum was the best!
Cinnamon Danish, Comment by Stephen Harris on October 14, 2019 - Report this comment
Unlike most 70's candy bars, I had completely forgot about this. Even now, I have only the faintest memory of it. It had a crunchy texture. I think it was so sweet that I would buy it only occasionally. Very distinctive taste.
Teddy Bear Ice Cream Bars or Brownie Bars, Comment by Cheryl on October 13, 2019 - Report this comment
I too grew up in the 50s and 60s loving those orange sherbet choc-covered bars and have missed them so! I also called diff. major ice cream companies trying to get them interested in making them but they all ignored me, don't think anyone responded at all. At least now Magnum has double raspberry, and strawberry cream! The rasp. is excellent. It is ice cream rather than sherbet. I wrote them to ask if they would consider orange sherbet- so keep an eye out...who knows!!? I believe Hood was the MA. company who made the orange sherbet bars. Had them at camp in NH one summer and ate them like they were going out of style! I echo the sentiment of why no one will make them when they were such a hit! Wish I had an answer...
Kentucky Fried Chicken's Ribs, Comment by Nancy Harmon on October 13, 2019 - Report this comment
The KFC beef ribs were one of my favorite foods in a lifetime. We lived in Mountlake Terrace, WA. and we loved them so much we quit going to any other restaurant. I'd love to know the recipe for the sauce.... They weren't cheap... but price was no option.... I'd love to see the return of the ribs.....

Those were DEFINITELY gingerbread sides!!!Beat Moon Pies by a wide mile. My brother and I still miss them from the fifties and often talk about them.
Giant Sweet Tarts (not chewy), Comment by Charlotte on October 13, 2019 - Report this comment
I just searched and it looks like Ferrara chocolate company bought them. I think we need to get a petition! I love the 2 packs and they finally went to the 3-pack! Would eat those until my tongue would not taste anything for a few hours! Lol
Boil a Bags, Comment by tabby_leg on October 12, 2019 - Report this comment
I found one at a grocery store about 20 years ago. It was buried in the back of the freezer section. Hate to admit it, but i bought it. Dont even remember if it rang up. It was the some type of roast beef. Either way i still remember it fondly. It probably expired 20 years eariler, but still ate it on white bread. Been looking for another one ever since. Half my kingdom for just one more! I feel so sad, shame and depressed now. I WANT ANOTHER ONE! If you ever had one you know what i mean.

Red Baby Soda, Comment by Rob Lambert on October 12, 2019 - Report this comment
Found only two images of Red Baby. One, a bottle cap with a million ingredients printed (must be by RC). The other, a 12oz can. Among the print, a disclaimer warning diabetics not to drink without consulting a doctor, for the main sweetener is Sacharrin. From around 1977.

Keith got it right. "Are you ready for Re-e-e-ed Baby! The cherry lemony lime . . . pop in the mouth!"
Mamas Cookies, Comment by Margaret A. on October 11, 2019 - Report this comment
I remember Mama's cookies. I loved the sugar cookie one. I could eat the whole box by myself. I LOVED THOSE COOKIES. They were the best. They are a very pleasant memory from my childhood. Why hasn't there been any response about the recipe or another company making the cookies??? I miss those cookies.
