Do you remember the jingles and the foods that they represented? How about your favorite foods growing up? This is our nostalgic food fetish deep dive! I was a big foodie as a kid. In fact, my house was the house with the best snacks so after school, it was the house everyone gathered.\r\n\r\nIt was all about food, homework and after school specials!\r\n\r\n\r\nMore of our Nostalgic Food Fetish Deep Dive!\r\nSome of the most memorable jingles were food jingles. A good sign they were successful foods but also a big draw to get us kids to convince our parents to buy the things we wanted as a result of these catchy tunes.\r\n\r\nMy friends always wanted to do their homework at my house because they always knew they would get to enjoy the snacks they weren't as lucky to enjoy at their own homes.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHere are some of the foods I grew up eating:\r\n\r\nHamburger Helper\r\nis a packaged food product that consists of boxed pasta bundled with packets of powdered sauce and seasonings.\r\n\r\nThe contents of each box are combined with browned ground beef, water, and occasionally milk to create a complete dish.\r\n\r\nThe pasta brand "Hamburger Helper" was first introduced in 1971. In 2005, Food Network rated Hamburger Helper third on its list of "Top Five Fad Foods of 1970".\r\n\r\nThe Hamburger Helper mascot is the "Helping Hand" or "Lefty": a four-fingered, left-hand white glove, with a face on it and red spherical nose. It often appears in the product's television commercials and on their packaged products.\r\n\r\n\r\nRice-A-Roni\r\nIs a pilaf-like boxed food mix that consists of rice, vermicelli pasta, and seasonings. To prepare, the rice and pasta are browned in butter, then water and seasonings are added and simmered until absorbed. It's The "San-Francisco Treat!"\r\n\r\n\r\nSpaghettiOs (Food Fetish)\r\nis an American brand of canned circular pasta shapes in a cheese and tomato sauce \u2014 and marketed to parents as "less messy" than spaghetti. More than 150 million cans of SpaghettiOs are sold each year.\r\n\r\nIn addition to the original variety, variations have included SpaghettiOs Meatballs (with miniature meatballs), SpaghettiOs Sliced Franks (with pieces of processed meat resembling hot dog slices), SpaghettiOs RavioliOs (with round, beef-filled ravioli), SpaghettiOs with Calcium, and other theme-shaped varieties.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSpaghettiOs were introduced nationally without test marketing\u00a0\u2014 with television advertising using the tag line "The neat round spaghetti you can eat with a spoon" and the jingle "Uh-Oh! SpaghettiOs", sung by pop singer Jimmie Rodgers\u00a0(loosely based on his 1950s song "Oh-Oh, I'm Falling in Love Again").\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\nCream Of Wheat\r\nFood Festish: Cream Of Wheat s a brand of farina, a type of breakfast porridge mix made from wheat semolina. It looks similar to grits, but is smoother in texture since it is made with ground wheat kernels instead of ground corn. It was first manufactured in the United States in 1893. "Cream of Wheat" is a registered trademark.\r\n\r\n\r\nHostess Fruit Pies\r\nBack in the day, these Hostess Fruit Pies were all the rage. Personal favorites were Cherry and Lemon for sure. It seemed these snacks have changed over the years. I remember these treats having more delicious fruit filling than crust, but a recent try of one made it clear times have changed.\r\n\r\nAnother fan of these snacks states, "They were best when they still listed lard as one of the ingredients." Watch this commercial for fruit pies from 1973 and it's clear that they don't make Hostess Fruit Pies the same anymore, or the commercials that tout their goodness. This commercial is a great blast from the past.\r\n\r\n\r\nNutter Butter Peanut Butter Cookies\r\nNutter Butter is a Nabisco brand peanut-shaped sandwich cookie with a peanut butter filling, which was introduced to the public in 1969. The snack has a two-ply bread peanut shape with a texture that resembles that of a peanut. The individual cookies are about 3-4 inches in length and have a very recognizable and distinctive look.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\nHunts Snack Packs (Food Fetish Continued)\r\nSnack Packs were introduced in 1968 in single-serve aluminum\/metal cans, before switching to plastic cups in 1984 and clear plastic cups in 1990.\u00a0\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\nHi-C\r\nis a fruit juice-flavored drink made by the Minute Maid division of The Coca-Cola Company.\r\n\r\nIt was created by Niles Foster in 1946 and released in 1948. The sole original flavor was orange.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nGood N' Plenty\r\nGood & Plenty was first produced by the Quaker City Confectionery Company of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1893 and is the oldest branded candy in the United States.\r\n\r\nBeginning around 1950, a cartoon character named "Choo-Choo Charlie" appeared in Good & Plenty television commercials. A railroad engineer, Charlie would shake a box of the candy in a circular motion, imitating a train's pushrods and making a sound like a train. The "Choo-Choo Charlie" jingle,\u00a0based on the popular song "The Ballad of Casey Jones".\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\nKaboom - Food Fetish\r\nwas the name of a vitamin fortified, circus-themed breakfast cereal produced by General Mills, which contained oat cereal bits shaped like smiling clown faces and marshmallow bears, lions, elephants, and stars. Its mascot was a smiling circus clown. It originated in 1969.\r\n\r\nKaboom was\u00a0a breakfast cereal of the 1970s and 1980s.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\nTang\r\nTang is a fruit-flavored drink. Originally formulated by General Foods Corporation food scientist William A. Mitchell.\u00a0in 1957, it was first marketed in powdered form in 1959.\u00a0Sales of Tang were poor until NASA used it on John Glenn's Mercury\u00a0flight in February 1962, and subsequent Gemini missions.\r\n\r\nSince then, it was closely associated with the U.S. manned spaceflight program, leading to the misconception that Tang was invented for the space program.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\nPeter Pan Peanut Butter - Food Fetish\r\nPeter Pan is a brand of peanut butter\u00a0named after the J.M. Barrie character. The product was originally packaged in a tin can with a turn key and re-closable lid, the product's packaging was changed to glass jars because of metal shortages during World War II.\r\n\r\nIn 1988, Peter Pan was was the first brand of peanut butter to be sold in plastic jars.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\nChiffon Margarine\r\nDena Dietrich\u00a0was the iconic character Mother Nature. She likes Chiffon and identifies it as \u201c... my delicious butter!\u201d The narrator (voiced by character actor Mason Adams) then tells her: \u201cThat\u2019s Chiffon margarine, not butter \u2026 Chiffon\u2019s so delicious it fooled even you, Mother Nature.\u201d\r\n\r\nVexed at the trickery, Mother Nature responds by uttering, in increasingly scornful tones, her signature line \u201cIt\u2019s not nice to fool Mother Nature," quickly followed by a flash of lightning, a peal of thunder, and occasionally an additional threat (such as silently commanding an elephant to charge the camera). The advertisements were typically closed by a jingle containing the lyrics, "If you think it's butter, but it's not: it's Chiffon."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\nCountry Time Lemonade\r\nflavor drink mix was introduced in 1975 by General Foods. Over the years various other flavors, including pink, raspberry, and strawberry lemonade, were added.\r\n\r\nCountry Time has sponsored NASCAR cars since 1989 when Michael Waltrip drove the car, posting a top 5 finish in it. Possibly the most notable driver was Neil Bonnett driving the Country Time sponsored car for the 1994 Daytona 500, the same race he died in a crash practicing for.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\nCarnation\r\nCarnation is a brand of food products. The brand was especially known for its evaporated milk product created in 1899, then called Carnation Sterilized Cream and later called Carnation Evaporated Milk. The brand has since been used for other related products including milk-flavoring mixes, flavored beverages, flavor syrups, hot cocoa mixes, instant breakfasts, corn flakes, ice cream novelties, and dog food. Nestl\u00e9 acquired the Carnation Company in 1985.\r\n\r\nCarnation was founded as an evaporated milk company. With the increased availability of home refrigeration of fresh milk and cream throughout the 20th century, the demand for evaporated milk decreased. Carnation diversified its product portfolio after the 1950s and was acquired by Nestl\u00e9 in 1984 for $3 billion.\r\n\r\n\r\nSo, while some of these products still exist, they were still staples of my childhood and as an adult have been replaced with new staples.\r\n\r\nI will say, I did get\u00a0Joy From Eating Sloppy Joes! And like every home, breakfast cereals was a daily dish. And, I definitely have my\u00a0Favorite Breakfast Cereals From The 60s.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWe did eat a lot of TV dinners. Swanson's was the name we bought.\r\n\r\nMy favorite was the Turkey And Gravy and the fried chicken but my brother's loved the Salisbury Steak.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThis was a time in our lives when my parents were working and this was the easy, quick solution to eating a full balanced dinner.\u00a0When Frozen Dinners Met the Boob Tube.\r\n\r\nAnd Hostess and Drakes were also snacks that we had in excess!\u00a0Which Snack Was All The Rage The Year You Were Born?\u00a0Yodels were mine. I loved them right out of the refrigerator and would unroll them to eat them. I had a whole process!\r\nWhat food fetish did you eat growing up that are nostalgic?
