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.

Spoon Candy, Comment by kimberlee on April 27, 2017 - Report this comment
Yes!!!! Finally remembered the name of this- it was my favorite dessert- and I see it was so many others too! Yes Jell-O, P-L-E-A-S-E bring it back. PB and chocolate. Nothing like it, but I am going to try the recipe someone suggested!
Sugarloaf Soft Bubblegum, Comment by Sharon on April 26, 2017 - Report this comment
I only had Sugarloaf a few times and I still remember how great it tasted. This was the best bubble gum. Not many people remember it but I'm glad we care enough to look for it and write our memories of it.
Baby Ruth Ice Cream Bars, Comment by C Powet on April 26, 2017 - Report this comment
Oh, gosh, I had not thought about those Baby Ruth ice cream bars in years and just suddenly got a craving for one a few days ago. Didn't even realize they don't make them anymore. Our taste buds have incredible memories!
Hot Lemon Pies From Jack In The Box, Comment by YveFontaine on April 26, 2017 - Report this comment
Hot and lemony tart. Genius. How can corporate be convinced to start selling them again?
Toastettes, Comment by Steven Gibson on April 25, 2017 - Report this comment
We loved the Toastettes ! The Same as Many, straight out of the Toaster and put Butter across one end and Tilt it up and like a Game fill each Hole with Butter as it melted down. Of course eat the Crisp lightly burnt Edges one little Nibble at a time. Then the Yummy Center ! Love !
Adams Sour Gum, Comment by Rob Lambert on April 25, 2017 - Report this comment
From the daytime TV vault: TV commercial depicting a timid, geeky young man (resembles Freddie of the Dreamers) who turns girls off. After chewing Adams Sour Cherry gum, he evolves into a man no girl can resist (macho-like). The "Sour Power" song is played. This aired on Dick Clark's music show, "Where the Action Is," over ABC (9/27/66).
Ring Dings , Comment by Karen on April 25, 2017 - Report this comment
I remember the big single ring ding too. Loved them and the Creme cups. What nobody has talked about was the little packs of cookies that Drake's usesd to sell too. I believe they made choc chip, peanut butter and my absolute favorite coconut! We would buy a pack of 4 to take on our class trips instead of a devil dog because they didn't melt. I grew up in NJ where they had a bakery in Irvington. Drake's are still a favorite bought cake....McKees is supposed to be a part of the original family. Miss the golden doodles too.
Chocolate Soldier Soft Drink, Comment by Phil on April 24, 2017 - Report this comment
I used to get Chocolate Soldiers at Campanella's Italian Market In Baldwin Park, CA in the late '50s and early '60s. I ran across a couple six packs of the bottles in the mid-'70s. I bought all they had. The only other time I ran across them was at Pegg Sue's Diner (a '50s retro restaurant) outside Barstow, CA. Loved them and would buy them again if I could find any!
Toaster Pizzas, Comment by Betty on April 24, 2017 - Report this comment
I was just thinking about this today. I don't remember who exactly made them, but I do believe they were called pop up pizzas. I do remember them being rectangular with an orange mixture inside due to the combining of cheese and sauce. They were delicious and I wish my kids could try the same exact ones. Miss them.
Simba Soda, Comment by John on April 24, 2017 - Report this comment
When my dad worked at Leavenworth prison, we prison brats got to swim at the officer's club. The lady who ran the commissary there, Mrs. Huber, always kept plenty of Simba on hand as well as frozen Zero bars and Chik-o-sticks. That's the only time I ever had Simba but I remember it was great. Tasted just like Fresca but with real sugar.
Whistles,Bugles and Daisies, Comment by Jeanne Wardwell on April 23, 2017 - Report this comment
I remember all three. I was in college when they came out. I did like Bugles the best, and I'm glad they came back, but somehow they're not quite the same. The ones I miss are Daisys, whose taste was a little different, I can't describe it. I would like to see them and Whistles come back. Oh, and I remember Cheese Waffies too; sometimes they can still be found, but one of the big corporations has them now.
Choco-Chill, Comment by Lisa on April 23, 2017 - Report this comment
Choco-Chill was one of my absolute favorite drinks as a child! I loved it over ice cubes on a hot, summer day. I have been looking for this product for years. I really hope it makes a comeback!
Pomac, Comment by J Kevin on April 23, 2017 - Report this comment
It's 4:30AM in S WI and I suddenly remember Pomac soda. We just recently got a Kroger store here, and that's where my mom used to buy it back in the late '60s in StL Missouri. If you got it cold enough, it tasted pretty good. It was pretty odd tasting otherwise, but it was less expensive than the name brands
