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.

Maybe Archway could divulge the recipe for the fudge nut cookies?
Gino's, Comment by Art S on January 19, 2018 - Report this comment
My first real job was at the Gino's in Havertown, PA in 1977. I also worked summer of '78 in Ocean City. Great friends. Good times. Numerous misdeeds. Gotta say, though, that the Gino Giant (eventually) turned me into a vegetarian.
Chicken and Noodles In A Jar, Comment by Lmlp on January 19, 2018 - Report this comment
This was my sick time soup growing up. Whenever I had a cold or sore throat mom would ask what I wanted to eat and it was always soup in a jar. Bad move on companies part to discontinue it. Look at all the fans here!
Great Shake, Comment by Rob Lambert on January 18, 2018 - Report this comment
From August, 1967, The Who's Great Shakes radio spot is played, followed by The Who's commercial for the US Air Force. Freaky, huh? Pete Townsend read the pitch from script in both commercials. This aired on Chicago's WCFL with Barney Pip in the DJ chair. It appeared that more than one American rock band or artist (many within draft range) shunned opportunities to record for the armed services, having the British Invaders do it instead.
Gino's, Comment by Bob on January 18, 2018 - Report this comment
I had the pleasure of working at the Towson, MD Ginos in the early seventies before I shipped off into the Coast Guard. Working at Gino's was a good time my life. I met a lot of friendly people during that time. To answer Linda Cs question yes Gino's did supply a bucket of chicken in a red pail with a white handle. These buckets appeared on the market for special promotions. Does anyone remember the open center frisbee. They fly extremely far in one toss. I still have one for keeping the good memories.
Tuna Twist, Comment by Shabazz K Morton on January 17, 2018 - Report this comment
Tuna twist was the best. Nabisco should bring it back. I ate this all the time and never had any issues but I guess some people were sensitive to the vegetable protein.
Ozark BBQ Potato Chips, Comment by psc41 on January 17, 2018 - Report this comment
They were the only BBQ chips I like. Had othe others but, not the same as the Ozark Country BBQ. I have tri s a lot of others or that were suppose to be the same or as good as but, no sir. You can’t find anything even close. Lived in a small town south of Springfield, IL they sold at drug store and few other places. So wish they still made them. But, like a lot of the really good stuff they are gone. Such a shame because New isn’t always better.
Treasures Chocolate Bar, Comment by Alverne on January 16, 2018 - Report this comment
Why did Neilsons stop making Treasure bars, four flavours, and Cuban lunch?
