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.

Tang - Grapefruit!, Comment by Paula R. on September 27, 2016 - Report this comment
I loved grapefruit Tang! When I was pregnant with my first child, I craved grapefruit ice cream! I mixed grapefruit Tang with vanilla ice cream several times a day for months - it was awesome! We had orange Tang all the time when growing up. We camped a lot, and it was perfect for that. My little brother loved that he drank the same thing as astronauts too. We lived in St. Louis, MO and grapefruit flavor was widely available in the area for at least several years. I was pregnant in 1972-1973.

4 Flavours Chocolate Bar, Comment by Dave on September 27, 2016 - Report this comment
Liquid four flavor, I have been looking for this bar for decades in specialty candy stores to no avail. A fantastic bar and would love to see it back on the market. If I ever saw it in a store I would literally buy boxes of it. As well I believe taken off the market that I would love to see back are the jersey milk treasure, the caravan bar, the rum and butter bar, and the jersey nut bar. Why are they getting rid of all the good ones. Like Moires Pot of Gold choclates, back in the day they were great with the rainbow wrapped chocolates and the many different flavours, now they just suck.

They're right across the Ohio River from Henderson Kentucky, in Evansville, IN. We grew up drinking RC and Ski. Ski had real fruit pulp and I was still able to get the small bottles up to 2001 or so.

Prontos, Comment by Dave S on September 25, 2016 - Report this comment
Ahh Yes... Prontos wavy corn-like chips in the small window bag! I ate these one time in suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin sometime in spring or summer of 1977. All I can say is that these tasted just alright but the smell from the bag was like someone farted and then bagged this product for sale. No love for this product that soon disappeared from our area store sometime in 1977.
McDonalds Steak Sandwich, Comment by Dave S on September 25, 2016 - Report this comment
Ahh Yes... The McDonald's Steak sandwich from 1980-1982 that came with a large packet of Kikkoman Steak Sauce and was only sold from 4:00 P.M. until closing time at least in the suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin stores. I was only eleven years old when this came out in 1980 and remember feeling extra grown up ordering this superb sandwich with my mom and that these trips were special as it had to be after 4:00 P.M. just like going out for a steak dinner! The sauce was the great part and I always got an extra packet by coming up with some excuse when they argued about it--so I could dip my french fries in the stuff. Great Times! Then POOF! sometime in 1982 it was gone forever.
Kentucky Fried Chicken's Ribs, Comment by Dave S on September 25, 2016 - Report this comment
Ahh Yes... I remember in the later 1970's my dad would sometimes get the original recipe chicken with that sticky red sauce on it and I tried it once but he stopped buying it or our area store stopped making it. That sauce was great on the chicken but I never had the ribs either the pork or beef ones. I am unsure if they sold them in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area but I would get them now if they did. Great chicken then and great memories on here now!
Fanta Red Creme Soda, Comment by Mike M. on September 25, 2016 - Report this comment
Fanta Red Cream was, and probably still is my all-time favorite soda. Can't recall when I last had one but I can tell you that I miss it. I used to be able to get it at a laundromat vending machine in Milwaukee around 1975 when I was only 8 or 9. I would have to go with my mom, and that is how she would bribe me. Only fond memories now, of course. I would love to try one again, even in a laundromat!

Cheez Wiz, Comment by Donna on September 25, 2016 - Report this comment
@Celeste, the other Kraft spread was "Old English"...enjoying a small juice jar of it spread on celery (on a low carb diet). LOL. It is probably just as gross as Cheese Whiz, but I will eat anything now.
Kellogg's Danish-Go-Rounds, Comment by Lisa on September 24, 2016 - Report this comment
I loved these, not only did they taste better than pop tarts but my grandmother would get them for me and my little sister when we would stay with her, so they have extra special memories for me!

Willy Wonka Super Scrunch Bar, Comment by Pat on September 23, 2016 - Report this comment
Yay! So glad others remember this candy. I agree that the scrunch bar was the best ever! They could not possibly have stopped making it because of too few sales. When I was in college at Auburn University, I would walk to the Fast Fare every day to get at least one scrunch bar. Oh, how I long for another. If anyone has any influence, it would be great if some company would make them again. They would make a fortune!
Ideal Cookies, Comment by Nancy on September 23, 2016 - Report this comment
I couldn't believe how many comments about Ideal cookies. I was looking up pinwheel cookies and came across Ideal. Holy cow. Memories at my grandmothers came flooding back. They were the best. Nothing compares.
