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.

I found an old wrapper while deep cleaning a while back in my store . I take it out sometimes and think back .In the 50s it was 3sticks for .01. Then went to 2for .01 . I would like to see it on the market again also. I,m 67 and can still taste it. Maybe one day!

I remember them and they were the best. Crust was more like a warm pie crust. Reminded me of mom cooking the left over pie crust with cinnamon and sugar.

Ahhh...i must have(in my child's mind or imagination)gotten the two products mixed up. That Purina chuckwagon commercial scared me so bad that I thought it would come out at night from under the sink in the kitchen where we kept Gaines Burgers for our pup!

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, a stop-motion TV commercial with the zebra and an elephant. This aired on "Bullwinkle" over ABC (10/9/66, Sun. broadcast). Episode included several previews of new fall shows like "That Girl" and "Green Hornet." Beech Nut began as strictly a baby food company. Production of chewing gum began in 1911. Original plant was in the small, yet historic, town of Canajoharie, New York (75 mi. N of NYC). Production left there by 1962. Fruit Stripe Gum introduced in 1964. Nestle now owns rights, but the Beech Nut logo has been phased out.

Hey, La Sponge! The Underwood Devil of pre-1956 was four times scarier! Had fangs, claws, and a mean face, but no pitchfork. The Purina Chuck Wagon was a stop-motion toy (1967-71) that lured the dogs to the food. The wagon driver's face was always shadowed out. Gaines Burgers, by the way, was by General Foods.

This isn't for snaps but for Snap-E-Tom...that logo scared the hell outta me! I thought he was from Ro-Tel tomatoes but saw an episode of "Family" in a grocery store and there he was! That guy scared me so bad as a kid...along with the Underwood devil ham guy and Purina Gaines Burgers covered wagon! Yikes!
