Today, recording the diversity of the food items we eat has become extremely easy with various networking apps and food blogs. A few decades down the line, a whole new generation of people will look at them and pass judgement and opinions on the kind of food that is popular and most liked today. So, why not take a leap back in time and do the same for the 50s, 60s and 70s food items? Beware – some of them are super weird!

Fast Frosted? But isn’t a souffle supposed to be baked? This eye-of-a-dragon looking salad has lemon gelatin, tuna, mayonnaise and vegetables. Definitely a frightening combination!

The poor Jell-Oed fish is actually freakishly smiling! And what’s up with those olive eyes? They seem to look right at you, and with nothing but hatred.

Guess, people back then were real fans of Jell-O. Although, this one does not really seem all that outlandish. At least, it doesn’t stare right back at you! But it’s definitely a whole weird mixture of apple juice, lemon juice, vinegar, carrots, celery, cabbage, green pepper, and pimentos.
