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.

Guy's Potato Chips, Comment by Steve McAlpine on November 21, 2014 - Report this comment
My dad started working for Kitty Clover when he got out of the military.He started as a route driver and retired as the General Manager for Kitty Clover, and had the duty of shutting down the old plant on Martha. After the company got bought out by Fairmont, Colboro, and others - we got transfered as a family from regional chip company to company for my dad to run the plants in St Louis, Minneapolis, Rockford, and others. My dad just turned 90 and still talks with love about the company, the product, and still craves the smell from the plant. As a kid I used to sneak out and snag fresh chips off the production line and there never was a better taste. If you ever brought home or mentioned you ate a Frito-Lay product, Pringle, or other company's chip - you got a lecture from my dad. Now its all national products that are the same, and my dad actually said that he would rather have me eat Old Dutch - which years ago would have caused a beating

Carnation Instant Breakfast, Comment by Eggy on November 20, 2014 - Report this comment
Yes, it would be nice if Nestle brought back the original flavors, especially eggnog. But there is more too it than just that. Nestle ruined Carnation's original formula for the powder as well. The original powder formula produced a wonderfully rich shake with great texture (although, sometimes a little lumpy). Nestle revised the formula (around the same time as they introduced the Sweet Success diet shake powder) to make it more "stirrable". This resulted in the shake coming out quite foamy with poor, foamy texture. This ruined both the Instant Breakfast and Sweet Success (which had great chocolate chip and almond flavors) powders sometime around 1996. Before that, they were great. Nestle sold off Sweet Success after they ruined it, but they can still save Carnation Instant Breakfast (or whatever it is called now). But I doubt they will. Nestle is notorious for ruining product they acquire. The only restraint they've shown is with Haagen Dazs. So, the original Carnation Instant Breakfast Eggnog flavor will only live on in the dreams of those who remember it, until we all die off.

Dixie Drumstick Crackers, Comment by Howard on November 20, 2014 - Report this comment
A true 1970's cracker treat. A staple for the household with hungry kids. I have no idea why they're not made anymore.
Corn Suckers, Comment by michelle on November 20, 2014 - Report this comment
Yes I remember them. I'm 55 live in lake Charles, la. Not many of my friends or co-worker that are around my age remember. They say I must have dreamed of them. Glad to know there are others who remember.
Wrapples, Comment by Momo on November 20, 2014 - Report this comment
This particular brand was discontinued long ago, but the basic product can still be found in grocery stores around fall. I've seen it sold under a number of different brands, but generally you'll find it in the produce department near the apples.
Figurines Diet Bars , Comment by smedina146 on November 20, 2014 - Report this comment
I, too, loved these back then. I just recently tried a POWER CRUNCH PROTEIN BAR...these are add close to the figurine taste I've seen (chocolate anyway).... dry, chalky and oddly addicting.
Rice Krinkles, Comment by Dan on November 19, 2014 - Report this comment
Try Special K with sugar sprinkled over it. The taste is the closest you'll find to Rice Krinkles. Try it and post your thoughts.
Yum Yums, Comment by Megan Blackstock on November 19, 2014 - Report this comment
There should be a poll and let everyone vote if they want to bring back the Yum Yum's from the 70's!
Pizza Spins, Comment by Brad on November 19, 2014 - Report this comment
General Mills may have heard enough requests to bring something like Pizza Spins back! I discovered a snack distributed by General Mills Sales in a Casey's General Store in Iowa this past week called Totinos Pizza Chips, Pepperoni Flavored. They are "popped" (baked under pressure) potato chips with seasoning and they taste like they are named! They reminded me of Pizza Spins a lot only differently shaped. I have photos of the bag!
