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.

Pommac And Apple Beer, Comment by Paul on October 04, 2015 - Report this comment
1964 in McKinney, Texas. The story on the school bus was that it was made out of champagne grapes. Tasted a little like white wine without the alcohol. Distributed by Dr. Pepper. -Paul

Fritos corn chips, Comment by Rob Lambert on October 03, 2015 - Report this comment
From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, TV commercial featuring the Frito Bandito eraser toppers (six different colors). This aired on a "Flintstones" rerun over NBC (9/7/68). On a TV note, NBC reran seasons three to six, with Pebbles and Bamm Bamm, from January, 1967 to December, 1969. Like many "filler" rerun cartoon shows, the network cut up to four minutes of episode flab to jam in extra commercials or promos. Once the entire series entered syndication, local stations did the same.

Kool Aid , Comment by Rob Lambert on October 02, 2015 - Report this comment
From the Saturday morning cartoon vault,two more Kool Aid TV commercials. First, with the Monkees (what was left of them, Micky and Davy), aired on the "Archie Comedy Hour" over CBS (3/21/70). Second, a scratchy black & whiter with Bugs Bunny and Elmer, who fails miserably at keeping the Wascally Wabbit out of his house and away from his Pre-Sweetened Kool Aid (Bugs on packet). Commercial also introduces Kool Pops frozen treats, with a cartoon owl pitching it. This aired on the "Bugs Bunny Show" (9/18/65, ABC). Episode included network cartoon promos, Mattel ads, plus an Ad Council PSA for Zip Codes (Postal Service) with Mr. Zip pictured. When ABC reran the series on Saturdays, episodes were decimated to jam in more commercials.

Heyday Bars, Comment by Just Sayin' on September 30, 2015 - Report this comment
OMG, these were the best cookies in the world ever. I would love a good recipe. I am craving them and have for a long time. I used to buy them as a treat for myself, I know stingy right. I think Nabisco had done marketing studies and found they were not cost effective for the wonderful little morsels. That would be my 2 bits for them. I sure miss them though!

Nacho Cheese Cheetos, Comment by Shannon on September 30, 2015 - Report this comment
I forgot to describe the was the Old School light Orange bag with the stripes on both sides of the Cheetos logo. The middle section of the bag was clear cellophane; not solid like todays' style and at the bottom it said "zesty". Just thought I'd share that! ☺
Nacho Cheese Cheetos, Comment by Shannon on September 30, 2015 - Report this comment
I loved these Cheetos! I used to eat them in the late 70's early to mid 80's with a strawberry Crush soda or Welch's Grape soda. All I remember is they were in a Orange bag and had Zesty at the bottom! Soooo good!! Frito Lay has way too many "Flamin' hot" choices. Get rid of one of those and bring back the Zesty Nacho Cheese ones, they will sell like hot cakes! Please!

Pizza Spins, Comment by Rob lambert on September 29, 2015 - Report this comment
To Elise from Chicago (I recognize the area code): This page is about a snack called Pizza Spins, made in the late 1960s/early 1970s by General Mills. It's not about actual pizza...just a pizza-flavored corn snack. Sorry.
