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.

Fudgetown Cookies, Comment by Rob Lambert on February 07, 2016 - Report this comment
Burry's Fudgetown Cookies go back to 1936. Found a few box images. First, one from around 1958, with the words FUDGE and TOWN printed on separate flags, sandwich cookie and houses pictured. Burry logo in English Gothic script. Second, appeared to be a camouflage box from World War 2, possibly used for overseas field rations. Seemed to be a strictly East-Coast product, a direct competitor of Drake's line of products in the greater New York City area. No TV commercials to be found. YouTube has a radio spot c. 1977.

If anyone does have any ideas for finding/recreating the recipe, I would be willing to invest real money towards such an effort (up to a couple/few hundred dollars at least). You can email me directly at dave767@hotmail.com if anything is in the works. Dave S, Dearborn, MI
Charles Chips, Comment by Mary on February 07, 2016 - Report this comment
I bought a tin of chips and a tin of pretzels at the Quakertown Farmers Market in Quakertown PA. The tins are smaller than the ones from my childhood, but I don't care. I put them on my fridge, just like at my grandparents' house back in the 70's. Just basking in the nostalgia...

I've FOUND the 4 pack GIANT Sweet tarts. You have to buy, by the case. Amazon has the 4 pack (which is half the width of the singles, I bought) Amazon has the case (36) 4 packs for $24.18 & free shipping. If they're out Candywarehouse.com has the same size case for $36
Fudgetown Cookies, Comment by Steve on February 06, 2016 - Report this comment
I remember having them with milk while watching Saturday morning cartoons as a kid in the early 60's in Florida. I think I remember that they made a short comeback sometime in the 80's, but then they disappeared again. I think about them from time to time because they were the ONLY store-bought cookies I ever really liked.
Burger King's Ice Burger, or Ice Burg, Comment by Curt on February 05, 2016 - Report this comment
Those things were awesome. I thought I was the only person that remembered those things. I asked several friends about it and they looked at me like I was crazy💪🏿👤👤
Spoon Candy, Comment by Erica on February 05, 2016 - Report this comment
I lived in Western Samoa as a child in the 70's and a lot of the imported foods came from the States. I loved Spoon Candy. Bring it back. I live in New Zealand now and there are some packet puddings that come close, without the shell but now everyone is reducing fat and sugar, standards are falling!!! What a treat.
