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.

Ozark BBQ Potato Chips, Comment by kathy on February 20, 2017 - Report this comment
Old Vienna has pretty good chips but if only they would make a rippled bbq chip.They could possibly taste similar to the Kas Ozark bbq chips. Gosh I miss those!
Great Shake, Comment by Rob Lambert on February 20, 2017 - Report this comment
Here's yet another Great Shakes wannabe: Milkshake In A Can by Borden. It was ready to serve...after chilling several hours (the sales killer). TV commercial with two 14-year-old girls and a younger boy singing a catchy jingle. This aired on Dick Clark's "Where the Action Is" daytime music show (5/17/66).
'Ice Cream Soda In A Bottle', Comment by Brian on February 20, 2017 - Report this comment
Kiora. Spelling might be different. The ad referred to the server as a soda jerk and the kid tells him he's not a jerk. The song is now stuck in my head!
Sunshine Toy Cookies, Comment by Kyle A on February 20, 2017 - Report this comment
I could never decide which I loved better as a kid in the 70s, Toy Cookies or a box of McDonaldland Cookies from McDonald's, they were both so good! I wish they would bring them both back so I can decide...
Carl's Junior Steak Sandwich, Comment by ken on February 19, 2017 - Report this comment
It was the sauce that made it...the 2000's version never came close in my opinion.

Boil a Bags, Comment by Kim on February 17, 2017 - Report this comment
I loved the Green Giant Mac and cheese. Got so I could eat two is one sitting! Great when I got home from work and easy to make. No mess! I asked Green Giant to bring them back and they obviously did not remember them. They kept pushing the broccoli and cheese sauce at me! Stouffers is good, but not as good as the Green Giant was. The cheese sauce was incredible!
The Red Barn, Comment by Katherine on February 16, 2017 - Report this comment
Red Barn on Dundas Street right beside Western Fair Grounds, London, Ontario. Loved the barnbuster. I would eat one of those over a big mac if they were still around.

Winner Suckers, Comment by Vic on February 16, 2017 - Report this comment
I am so glad that I came upon this blog. I too have such fond memories of these lucky suckers. In a time when candy was a rare treat, winning an additional candy was DOUBLE the pleasure. I would most definitely buy them again.
