One food trend during the 70's was Fondue. People would buy fondue pots, which held melted cheese for dipping bread or hot oil which raw meat was dipped into with long forks.
They would have fondue parties and play Twister.
Before microwave ovens were invented, crock pots were popular in the 70's, which cooked food all day so a hot meal was ready when you got home.
Also, Hamburger Helper hit it's peak during the 70's. At first there were only a few varieties, you took a pound of ground beef and had a meal. Now there are dozens of types of Hamburger Helper, as well as Tuna helper, but it's not as popular as it was in the 70's.
And candies like Pop Rocks, Zotz, and Clark bars were popular.
And NBC's "Saturday Night at The Movies" wasn't complete without a bowl of burnt Jiffy Pop stove-top popcorn to eat.
