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.

Sorry the message about PS107 should have been for Lola
In the late 50's early 60's my mother would buy iced fruit cookies...they were delicious and had pink and/or white hard icing on them. They were not spice cookies but they were called "Fruit" cookies. Does anyone remember the name of them?

Mortons Mini Sugar & Spice Doughnuts, Comment by CindyA on February 26, 2015 - Report this comment
So funny that others are just as obsessed as I am! Oh, how I remember these donuts, which my mom ALWAYS had in our freezer, along with honey buns!! I search the frozen food aisle every time I go to a new grocery store! And guess what I found last night at TARGET? (one with a full grocery department.) They are microwave mini donuts (in the frozen department) and you sprinkle cinnamon sugar on them when warm. My kids thought I was crazy, but just the smell of them out of the microwave, and I was like, "that's the smell I remember!!" They tasted pretty good, although nothing compares to the original Morton's donuts. For now, these will be a nice blast from the past!!

I Remember Pomac soda and Hippo size sodas in the mid 60's my Grandparents owned a neighborhood store in San Antonio,Tx I also heard my older Brother said it was like drinking a beer. It tasted ok and it was the color of my dads beer I thought I was cool.

I remember both the Great Shakes and the Nestle Quik Shakes. I recall that I liked the Quik Shakes somewhat better, but both were great. I sure wish they were still available.
Chum Gum, Comment by Rob Lambert on February 23, 2015 - Report this comment
Here's a wild one! There actually was a Chum Gum before Fleer's stick bubble gum! I found, on Ebay (sorry, folks, no Fleer Chum Gum for sale), an old advertisement page, from a Chicago newspaper, for a candy/novelty company from 1938. This company sold a stick, spearmint-flavored chewing gum...named Chum Gum! Five sticks in a cardboard box for five cents. This preceded Fleer's product by 13 years. History does not state if Fleer "borrowed" the name, or any legal problems because of it. The Chicago company was small. I'm guessing it went under during World War 2 (sugar rationing), and Fleer simply tagged the stick bubble gum as such, legally. The old ad piece may still be available...believe it was around $15.
Tuna Twist, Comment by Steve on February 23, 2015 - Report this comment
I was eating a tuna sandwich that my wife had made. It had celery and onions in it. First time I had celery in my tuna salad was using Tuna Twist. Haven't liked it without celery since, but it's just not the same. I was so disappointed when they took this off the market. My son was two at the time and he liked it. He's forty now. Oh! For the good ole days!
Camp Steaks, Comment by Jim on February 23, 2015 - Report this comment
Boy, did I love reading all the comments. And I mean ALL. I now live in Texas, and to even think that Camps could be found here would be a dream come true. I would have to try to find someone to ship a refrigerated package if I ever wanted one again before I pass. I use to live about a mile from them in Culver City when I was a kid in the 50's and I too grew up on those little steaks. I envy anyone who lives close enough to buy them because it's impossible for me to ever get them again. Although, if anyone has heard of them being out my way, I would love to hear from you. I will enclose my email address and hope someone just might have some good news.
