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.

Toastettes, Comment by Michael on December 10, 2016 - Report this comment
Toastettes were far better than kellogs pop tarts. I search the web a couple times a year to see if they will be brought back. No such luck.
Appollo Cake, Comment by Tony C. on December 10, 2016 - Report this comment
Reading these posts I still can remember my Big Twins. I think they were a dime back in the day. I sold newspapers at Nepco meat packing company and would later cross the street to buy my cakes. Good times in the 1960's. Bring them back!!!!!!
Cocoa Marsh, Comment by Sandy on December 10, 2016 - Report this comment
Decorating for Christmas today and found my 1960 letter to Santa asking for a cocoa marsh soda fountain. Had to Google it. Thanks for the memories! (Our neighbor answered the Santa letters and gave them back to my mother.)
Ozark BBQ Potato Chips, Comment by Vivian Robak on December 10, 2016 - Report this comment
My hometown is Chicago, (Hickory Hills.) Me and my siblings were all talking about those chips. We couldn't remember the name of them. We used to walk up to the White Hen Pantry, and buy them. AHHHHHH, the 70's. . . . .
Tigers Milk Powder Drink, Comment by Philomena on December 10, 2016 - Report this comment
I used to make a version of Tigers' Milk in the early 80's using powdered soymilk (that was the only sort you could buy back then), tahini, molasses, brewers' yeast, dolomite powder and orange juice. It was yum, and I grew a 9lb baby boy on it!!!!!
Name Droppers candy, Comment by Mike on December 09, 2016 - Report this comment
Candy tabs were red, and similar to Pez. The package was about three inches long, and colored green, with a picture of the red candy on the side. Used to get them in a small Greek mom & pop grocery here in Middletown, Ohio, back in the late 60's. They were made in Czechoslovakia. My email is if anyone has more information. I am 63, but remember them well !
Not sure of brand, the cookies I remember were spice, with white icing and thin chocolate lines on top...yummm, I keep looking but no luck
hydrox were delicious much better than oreos oreos were bitter whereas hydrox was more of a mellow milk chocolate cookie They should have had a better name for them, something more appealing to kids I never quite understood how or why they called them Hydrox Does anyone remember a delicious sesame cracker called Ocean Crisps ? I think that was the name ... Did Sunshine make those too ?

Shake Ups, Comment by Rob Lambert on December 08, 2016 - Report this comment
Borden made two variant products aimed at competing with Great Shakes. First was Milk Shake in a Can. TV commercial aired on the daytime pop music show, "Where the Action Is," over ABC (5/17/66). Second was Frosty Shakes, a powder mix, from 1968. Shake in a Can was exactly that. You had to chill it, then shake and serve.
