I loved researching the last 60's project so much that I continued my quest for 60's information and discovered Foods and Products that were introduced in the 60's.
I'm certainly aware of many of the products on the list. I remember them well and a kid. I did not know the dates that they were introduced to America. This was a trip down memory lane for me, it will be for many of my readers too.
Some of these products are already extinct and others are still available.
Here's the list by decade:

If I really want to be reminded of the 60's, I would post a list of the top ten songs from each decade.
I believe I still have all of those songs on 45 RPM's..... and I still have a turntable!

Peace in the Kitchen!
