    I used to eat at Arthur Treachers all the time. But only fish, not chicken. What are you...a witch? Now it's Captain D's all the way.

    Anyone remember "Fandangos" corn chips from the 70s? I miss those.

    They still make Bottle Caps candy, but now it comes in thick tablet-like shapes. It used to be thinner and shaped like actual bottle caps. I have no idea why it tastes different to me but it does.

    Vanilly Crunch. It always seemed the flavors I liked best lasted the least amount of time.

    We didn't make it out to the glory of fast food much in the 70's, but I do also remember the salty goodness of mushrooms on steaks at the Sizzler's.

    To be honest, most of my 70's food memories are pretty bad- unevenly heated TV dinners, the cardboard texture of Ellio's frozen pizza and the slightly-off flavor of supermarket brand soda.
    WANTED - Solid-Boxed WGSH's, C.8 or better.

    1. Drive-Inn movie concession stand cheese burgers … modern roach-coach burger on steroids
    There is a local Drive-In at the next town over that has those greasy, cheesy burgers like that. We only go once a year at best, and I enjoy eating one. There was a local fast food joint called "Old McDonald's Dairy Barn" down the street from my grandparents house that had similar burgers, and man, it takes me back.

    I miss Jello 123.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    When I think 70's fast food, the first thing that comes to mind is the 21 Shrimp Basket that I would order at H. Salt Fish & Chips. 21 Popcorn Shrimp served in a small green plastic basket, like what you would find strawberries in. Delicious.
