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.

Pepchew , Comment by Ande on July 22, 2014 - Report this comment
I LOVED those and remember the red, green and white wrapper very well. I still look for them in the "retro" candy stores, but never see them and ask about them. Sometimes I just get a blank look, so obviously they're not available. Lots of "retro" tings are being revived, why not this? I think there's a market for this, eh?

Butternut Candy Bar, Comment by Miss Butternut! on July 21, 2014 - Report this comment
BUTTERNUT!!!!!! I still dream of butternut candy bars today! I use to eat them until I got sick or break out in pimples. Non can compare...whoever made decision not to make them anymore made a serious mistake! So many years ago I bought my last butternut in a little country store (had not seen any in years), my mouth start watering when saw it could not wait to get in the car to tear into it. I opened it and it crumbled into so many tiny pieces...I think it was as old as I am. Please bring butternuts back...I will be 60 soon would love to have them to enjoy again...can I have the recipe at least!
Tang - Grapefruit!, Comment by Generalist on July 21, 2014 - Report this comment
My family liked grapefruit Tang as a cold remedy. If you drank it hot and a bit more concentrated than usual, it would clean out your sinuses and your throat. A good bite to it. Grape Tang was another favorite.

Keebler's German Chocolate Cookies, Comment by Deb on July 20, 2014 - Report this comment
These cookies were my favorite. Even now, there has not been a store bought cookie I like more. I googled this cookie because friends were beginning to make me believe I imagined these cookies. If this cookie were still around, I would actually buy cookies again.

Rice Krinkles, Comment by Rob Lambert on July 20, 2014 - Report this comment
That's right, Donna! The loop-da-loop crazy straws were in Rice Krinkles around 1973 or '74. Krinkles were actually rice flakes instead of rice-shaped pieces. The first Rice Krinkles premium was the So-Hi acrobat toy from 1965.

Triple Triangle. I remember the name.I grew up in St Matthews. Were there any in east end? Highlands maybe? Or maybe near fairgrounds? I know I went there but don't remember where. Maybe Hikes Point?

Wow I'm surprised to see how many other people were looking this up! I was born in 1969 & absolutely loved KRAFT! Anything really but most importantly the kisses! MMMM... Cheez Kisses. Didn't think it was Borden but guess so. My Mother told me one day I said I was going on a "KRAFT" diet, I'd only eat Kraft items LOL! Let's hope someone brings them back! Cheese Curds are awesome too!

Nabisco Chocolate Chip Cookies ( 1970's), Comment by Rob Lambert on July 18, 2014 - Report this comment
Diva E: You need to contact Kraft Foods. That company now carries Nabisco products. The toll-free number is: 1-800-431-1003. Direct questions to Consumer Products,or possibly, Product Development. You may have better luck convincing them to revive Chocolate Chip, Ginger Snaps and the like, than some of us had trying to revive Great Shakes.

I have a can of these. I believe they went out of date in January 1985. I'm thinking of selling them. What do we think might be the worth to a collector? I'm fieldsimon on twitter, if you want to state your interest!
