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.

Bundt Cake Mix (Pillsbury), Comment by Louise on June 14, 2019 - Report this comment
Every year I visit this site and hope to hear that the bundt cake mixes are back on the market. I miss these cakes so much! It seems almost cruel to introduce us to a dessert that is so wonderful and then take it away. I know it would be expensive but surely not more than a cake from a bakery that is half as yummy.
Different Kinds Of Pepsi, Comment by Rob Lambert on June 14, 2019 - Report this comment
On the Chicago Scene. From May, 1966 on WCFL radio, a Pepsi commercial with Joannie Summers ("Come Alive! You're In the Pepsi Generation"), as aired on the Jim Stagg (late PM) program. A time when Disc Jockeys could stretch the humor to a certain length (long as content was kept clean). One feature was the periodic traffic report. On Stagg's show, it was done in a way now pegged as taboo or offensive. A computer-generated (and sensuous) female voice announced the traffic congestion, calling herself "Trooper 36-24-36." It was accepted back then. By 1967, it was scrubbed, and a normal announcer did traffic. WCFL's "VIP" lineup in 1966 included veterans Joel Sebastian, Madman Ron Britain and Wild Child/Teen Idol Barney Pip.

I grew up in southwestern Indiana in the late 60s and we could buy the cherryanza bar or the bananza bar. I have no idea who made them but wish I could taste one again!
Quisp And Quake Cereal, Comment by Rob Lambert on June 13, 2019 - Report this comment
From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, another race, in which Quake goes underground, and Quisp uses a hover version of his space ship. After mishaps involve both, the race ends in a tie. This aired on "Magilla Gorilla" over ABC (4/23/66). Ideal Toys and Mars Candy Co. also sponsored. Network promos for "Peter Potamus" and "Bullwinkle" (both aired Sundays). In his own cartoon, Magilla (Allan Melvin) joins teenage humans on the beach, and a new dance craze develops thanks to him. Also, "Punkin Puss (Allan Melvin) & Mush Mouse" (Howard Morris). Plus, "Ricochet Rabbit (Don Messick) & Droop A Long " (Mel Blanc).
Carnation Breakfast Squares, Comment by Payton Kim on June 13, 2019 - Report this comment
i loved the cinnamon ones. when i found out that they were being discontinued, i wrote a letter to [some address] and begged them not to do so. i told them how much i loved the cinnamon ones, and the vanilla ones. [i'm not a fan of chocolate]. to my surprise, I received a nice reply 'thanks for your letter, blah blah, sorry ....' and two CASES of bars. one vanilla, one cinnamon. I was in heaven.
