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.

Giant Sweet Tarts (not chewy), Comment by Marianne on December 10, 2019 - Report this comment
Loved the Original 2 Pack, but does anyone remember the huge SweeTart Balls? They were a lot bigger than a golf ball, talk about a turfed tongue.
Kentucky Fried Chicken, Comment by Rob Lambert on December 10, 2019 - Report this comment
From the prime time TV vault, a husband/dad averts chaos at home: stressed out wife overcooks and burns their chicken dinner. Dad says: "Let's visit the colonel!" When family arrives at KFC, Col. Sanders greets them from behind counter. This aired during "Matt Lincoln" on ABC (10/1/70). After five years as the callous physician "Ben Casey," Vince Edwards is gentler as a psychiatrist in East Los Angeles. Former Mod, Mod World dancer on "Laugh-In," Chelsea Brown, played Tag, who worked at a telephone crisis hot line under Dr. Lincoln. Aired on Thursday nights, "Matt Lincoln" had substandard ratings, cancelled after 16 episodes.
Kentucky Fried Chicken's Ribs, Comment by Liz on December 09, 2019 - Report this comment
I ate those ribs regularly in NYC in the 70's. They destroyed my gastrointestinal system but it was worth it!
Hamburger Helper, Comment by Tiffany on December 07, 2019 - Report this comment
There used to be another flavor of HH (besides Potatoes Stroganoff, which we just had for dinner tonight lol) that had the sliced potatoes in it. Anyone remember what it was called? I also loved the Rice Oriental. There is actually a Facebook page now called Bring Back Hamburger Helper: Rice Oriental! Haha! Glad I stumbled onto this page...I found it while I was telling my boyfriend over dinner all the HH flavors I used to love, and I couldn't remember some of the discontinued ones so I googled it and here I am. Thank you all for the pleasant little stroll down memory lane :)

'Ice Cream Soda In A Bottle', Comment by Sandra on December 07, 2019 - Report this comment
I’m looking for information about this soda too! I only had it one time at my best friend’s birthday party in summer probably around 1974 Or 1975. We still talk about that stuff.. I can’t find anything about it anywhere!
Big Mac, Comment by Rob Lambert on December 06, 2019 - Report this comment
On the Chicago scene. A great McDonald's commercial that shows an African-American family enjoying a meal. The dad eats a Big Mac. R&B music in background. You Deserve a Break Today. This aired over WBBM Ch. 2 on "Stand Up And Cheer" from 11/71. Johnny Mann's guest was John Forsythe, who recites a eulogy for JFK, as written by the late Senator Adlai Stevenson. Despite the ongoing Vietnam War (and the draft), Mann and his chorus of mostly young folks combine patriotism with current hits in the weekly musical collage. Forsythe also joins the "rap session" with Mann and singers. Nationally sponsored by Chevrolet, with time for local commercials.
