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.

Hunt's Skillet Dinners, Comment by Steve on April 20, 2014 - Report this comment
We also lived on this stuff, especially the lasagna, after we got married in 1972. It's the only thing I have ever grieved for this long. We still call it the "skillet lasagna effect" when any item we really like is removed from the market.

I use to go to Weston when I was a kid by self since I lived right around the block on Morrison ave. I was about 12 when I had those Weston fries, so good! Then Weston on forest was right across from McDonald playground. The fist taste of fast food was great.

Some of the best times I had was working at the red barn, with people like bubba, ingred, Emma, and Jim Toth, the manager. The red barn on Harvard ave, cleveland, oh. Was the best
Figurines Diet Bars , Comment by Dwyin on April 16, 2014 - Report this comment
Have been trying to remember the name, so entered a description and VOILA! Here I am. In my 30s I lost 40 lbs. in about 3 mos. eating the vanilla ones (2) with a cup of hot chicken broth every evening for supper. I never tired of looking forward to supper when that was the fare. The saltiness of the chicken broth (I used bouillon cubes and hot water) really complemented the mild sweetness in the Vanilla Figurines. Did have trouble keeping my six children out of them. I will try to find the power crunch bars at Amazon, if no luck, will look at Trader Joe's next time I am in the city. If Vermont Country Store can't get them, they probably are "ungettable" ... Like my Muffets shredded wheat round biscuits with malt, and my glycerine-based cologne, "Early Iris" by, both late 60s products. Sigh...such good stuff gone forever...but wondrous memories. :)
