    Pringles were a new snack concept, and only came in one flavour whilst dorito's had been out for awhile but introduced the new nacho cheese flavour.

    Does anyone else remember 1-2-3 jello? I think it came out in the late 60's but continued strong into the 70's. I especially liked the strawberry flavour!

    That horrid cheese in a can was, I think , a total 70's innovation. I can recall having it on ritz crackers with my friend as we watched Love American style.

      Loved 1-2-3 Jello! Had an older sister that for some reason would always mess it up when she tried to make it(she also tried to make macaroni and cheese buy frying it in a pan). So to this day whenever she tries to make fun of anybody else we just simply look at her and say "1-2-3 Jello?" and it shuts her up immediately. :-)

    Those muffins that came in a can and you whacked the can against the fireplace and it went POP and then you took out the dough, in very gooey discs, and put them on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven and OH MAN THAT'S GOOD EATIN'. When I want a sentimental journey I still make them. That is why I weigh one million billion pounds.

      Mom was real tight with the junk food but if I was at a friends I loved the pink "snowballs" bakery treats.mmmmmm

      I remember my parents drank Tab. ECHK!!!

      My dad used to eat practically a whole pizza himself while he drank Tab. I tried to tell him it wasn't some magical fat destroying elixer but he didn't take the hint.

    "I loved Carnation Breakfast Bars...those were the best!"

    Definitely! I was so mad when they stopped making them! Grrrr!

    Fizzies tablets. (Sort of like flavored "Alka Seltzer" tablets.) Those were fun. I can't remember how they tasted, though...

    I *REALLY* miss Hostess "Banana Dreams". Mmmmmmm, yummy! (Please tell me I'm not the only one who remembers those!)

      Banana Dreams, alternative flavor for Suzy-Q's.

      Tang came in grape, too.

      Reggie Bar.

      They make Fizzies these days, too. They came in grape, cherry, and orange, and you dropped them into a glass of sugar flavored with water. The new ones have (ugh) Nutra-Sweet mixed in them, no sugar involved. What's the point?

        Banana Dreams were nothing like Suzy-Q's!
        They came in a 2-pack, and had a yellow colored creamy topping on banana flavored 'cups'. (The 'cups' being shaped like the shortcake things you buy to put strawberries on.) *WAY* better than Suzy-Q's could ever be!


        Fizzies were just dropped into water. You weren't supposed to put sugar in the water first. Or did you mean that the fizzies made it a sugar flavored water??

        Yeah, I've tried the newer version of fizzies. They really suck!

      Were the Carnation Breakfast bars this chocolatey kind of roll, like a softer tootsie roll? I loved those things....

        ** "Were the Carnation Breakfast bars this chocolatey kind of roll, like a softer tootsie roll?..." **

        Erm..no. They were "Bars", not rolls. I remember there being a chocolate flavored one, that was sort of like a frosted brownie. That was the only flavor I bought. They were sold in a box. I don't remember how many came in a box.

    Bugles - Those weird corn snack, tasted kind of like a salty
    version of corn chex. They were shaped like little
    conucopias, so you could stick them on your finger tips and
    pretend to be a witch...

          I used to get a kick out of filling Bugles w/Cheese Whiz and eating them that way.

          Hey . . . that sounds pretty good. Think I'll get some next time I go the store! :)

          remember the danger music as the giant Bugle approached? "Buh-na-buh-na-BUH-NAH-buh-nah, buh-nah-buh-na-BUH-NAH-buh-nah..." EEK! The MSG approaches!!!

        Ermmm... Some of those things aren't exclusively from the 70's. Some are from the 80's and a few lasted into the 90's or later.

          didn't see the 'exclusively from the 70's' clause - they were all from my 70's experience - hence my list. now - stop being so anal and pass me a fluffernutter!
