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.

Cinnamon Danish, Comment by Norm on November 30, 2020 - Report this comment
I sure miss this unique candy bar. I could never describe it in enough detail to jog anyone's memory... I wish they would make these available if only for a limited time...
Caravelle Candy Bar, Comment by Rob Lambert on November 30, 2020 - Report this comment
From the daytime TV vault, an early commercial for Caravelle ("New From Peter Paul")The voice announcer sounds like Larry Blyden. A beautiful woman and geeky guy are shown. Girl threatens to leave unless he gives her Caravelle. This aired during the teen-oriented soap opera, "Never Too Young," on ABC (#/3/66). Breeze laundry soap, Oscar Mayer cold cuts, Wish Bone dressing and Alka Seltzer also sponsored. Several network promos include "The Fugitive' " Also, "Where the Action Is" with Dick Clark and "12 O'clock High" with Paul Burke. While many soaps are reputed as dull, slow moving and over-dramatic, "Never Too Young" was an exception. It was lively, with fast-paced subplots. Rock N Roll music was implemented in many episodes. Tony Dow did his best to make his character more hip than Wally Cleaver. While the main premise was boys, girls and surfboards, the Malibu Beach setting and the teen hangout, Alfy's High Dive, quite appropriate. Alfy, the British owner in his twenties, had the liability of being attractive to the teenage girls. Close to 200 episodes were taped in glorious black & white. Show lasted nine months, replaced by "Dark Shadows" in June, 1966. _

Can Full Of Worms Soda, Comment by Steven on November 27, 2020 - Report this comment
I remember drinking I like worms soda as a kid in the early 70's when I'd visit my grandparents in Desoto, Wisconsin. It was a regional soda sold in Minnesota & western Wisconsin. About 10 years ago I found a near perfect can at a flea market. I think I paid 50 cents for the empty can and still have it.
Pizza Spread, Comment by John on November 27, 2020 - Report this comment
Libby’s Spread ‘n Heat Pizza The “Pizza” in the name of this product was a bit misleading; Libby’s Spread ‘n Heat was simply a flavored sauce sold in a smallish can. You had to provide the bread and the cheese. And the cooking process was a little more involved than the standard heat-and-serve convenience food: You first toasted a slice of bread (or an English muffin, if you liked a thicker crust) in the toaster, then slathered on the Libby’s Spread. Next you sprinkled the cheese of your choice on top and popped it into the toaster oven for another two or so minutes. But back in 1975 the folks at Libby’s were betting that consumers would prefer waiting three minutes for a slice of pizza bread versus the 30 minutes it took for a frozen pizza to cook. Libby’s wasn’t wrong with its prediction that consumers would buy a product that allowed them to concoct a reasonable facsimile of pizza out of a hamburger bun (Ragu's Pizza Quick Sauce would take off in the years to come), but for some reason the sauce never took off
