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.

Caravelle Candy Bar, Comment by Alice on April 26, 2015 - Report this comment
A soda and a Caravelle Bar were Friday night's special reward for having survived the week back in the 70s!! I miss it too and still look for it!
Hoffman's sodas, Comment by Gary from Queens on April 26, 2015 - Report this comment
Remember fondly my first encounter with "exotic" sarsaparilla, but even "ordinary" flavors were special. Another favorite: black cherry. As with many, soda was a Sunday dinner and holiday treat.
The Red Barn, Comment by Steve Pope on April 25, 2015 - Report this comment
Red Barn were in Oakleigh South in Melbourne Australia They had the best hot dogs ever there. I think they closed in 1972?
Great Shake, Comment by Rob Lambert on April 25, 2015 - Report this comment
A short comparison here: Pillsbury's Moo Juice shake mix was weak. You needed two or more packets to a single glass of milk to equalize one Great Shakes packet. Moo Juice was meant for smaller children. Moo Juice first was sold in 1966, and gone by the end of 1967. The cartoon cow was female, voiced by a male actor, in the TV commercial.

Milky Bites, Comment by Smokey on April 25, 2015 - Report this comment
I used to get Knickerbockers in Brooklyn and Queens as a kid in the late 50s-early 60s. We'd go 'sewer fishing' and take our few coins to the candy store for them. We were poor, but thinking about those candies stir up some great memories. Closest you can get now is the Joyva Jelly Bars. They have a website that isn't maintained, but there's a phone number to contact them.
Great Shake, Comment by Rob Lambert on April 24, 2015 - Report this comment
From the Saturday morning vault: A TV commercial from another competitor of Great Shakes, that being Moo Juice by Pillsbury. A cartoon cow pushes the product. These were in mix packets similar to Funny Face or Kool Aid. You had to provide your own shaker. Commercial aired on the "Mighty Heroes" cartoon show (3/25/67) on CBS. A Funny Face ad followed, featuring Goofy Grape.
Treasures Chocolate Bar, Comment by chuckthefreek on April 24, 2015 - Report this comment
Treasures bar. CARMEL, CHOCOLATE CREAM, CHERRY CREAM, VANILLA CREAM, TURKISH DELIGHT (which seemed like a type of red jelly) and BORDEAUX was the sixth flavored filling. Kind of like a butterscotch kind of cream.

Corn Suckers, Comment by Lyn on April 22, 2015 - Report this comment
In the mid-60's my brother and I would stay with my aunt in Malvern, Arkansas, and we would all 3 ride our bicycles to a little country store and buy the Corn Suckers. I didn't remember that's what they were called, but remember they were shaped like corn and we found money in ours a lot. Was asking my aunt about them awhile back and she didn't remember - I'll have to tell her about this site. Wonderful memories. (I'm 55)
