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.

Kentucky Fried Chicken's Ribs, Comment by Rob on December 09, 2018 - Report this comment
These ribs would be a gold mine today if KFC or anyone would duplicate it! I was only a child but will never forget how good they were.
Kelloggs Pop Tarts, Comment by Rob Lambert on December 08, 2018 - Report this comment
From the prime time TV vault, another in the series of Pop Tarts commercials featuring Dennis James, a game show host. Inside the Battle Creek facility, he demonstrates how Pop Tarts are vacuum packed (wrapped and sealed) for freshness. This aired on "Monkees" over NBC (9/19/66). Song in episode was "Take a Giant Step." Other commercials were for Apple Jacks, Frosted Flakes (Tony), and Corn Flakes (Jimmy Durante). Alternate sponsor, Yardley cosmetics and fragrances (for men and women). Network promo for "I Dream of Jeannie." Behind the scenes, it was constantly rocky. A mental war between Mike Nesmith, Don Kirshner and RCA studio musicians over who plays the instruments. Kirshner and the RCA players got the boot. Small victory for Nesmith.
Maple Duds Candy, Comment by John Dixon on December 07, 2018 - Report this comment
I remember a milk-dud type candy called "Maple Buds". They were a chocolate rosette sort of like a striated Hershey kiss with maple flavouring. I hear that someone is bringing them back.

It was College Inn and I ate it all the time.
Giant Sweet Tarts (not chewy), Comment by C.J./CA on December 05, 2018 - Report this comment
Maybe a petition to the company would be worth a try. It seems there are a lot of fans of the old school GianTarts! I remember the two packs from the 70's. Pink and Purple stacked on top of each other. They were the best!!! I would love to see these or the three pack version brought back.
