– TV dinners first stepped onto the scene in the 1950s when Swanson was looking for a way to sell their Thanksgiving food leftovers. They came up with the idea of serving ready-made food frozen on a convenient tray.
– If you ever ate dinner at your grandma’s house as a kid, you probably tasted the stuff once or twice. Gelatin was first used in dishes back in medieval Europe and was partly made from the collagen in animal bones.
– Back in 1968, many kids could be seen sipping on a cold bottle of SunnyD as a part of a well-balanced breakfast — and it was anything but. SunnyD tasted super sweet because it was primarily made of corn syrup and contained less than 5% juice.
– One Hi-C Wild Cherry juice box contained a whopping 27 g of sugar, which is more than the American Heart Association recommends grown women ingest in a day — and these were intended for kids!
– Back in the late ’80s and ‘90s, Bubble Tape was a fan fave! But ever, since sugar-free gum became more popular and oral health, became more of a priority, this sugary sweet gum just wasn’t as desirable anymore.
– Ambrosia salad was usually found at family gatherings back when you or your parents were younger. This sweet salad actually came onto the scene back in the 1800s and usually featured special sweet treats that only appeared on special occasions.
– Once people realized how bad trans fats were for them during the ‘90s, Crisco stopped being used as often.
– It wasn’t until the 1950s that cottage cheese became incredibly popular. It’s very mild in flavor and isn’t super high in fat, which was appealing to people from the ‘50s into the ‘70s.
