    "Vintage" foods that are still with us today.

    These from The Ladies' Home Journal, July 1944,... with recipes! I was surprised that I recognized most of the brands that were advertised.



    Who could resist a yummy entree of Spam?

    This one reminds me of an ad from the 70's.

    Something about the artwork.

    Get it all here.



    And have dinner in your modern dining room. (Can't say as I care for this decor, though.)

    TIAS.com

    People reading this thread might like reading the recipes that arrive in an electronic newsletter sent out by an antique website.

    I think the website is: www.tias.com

    If you sign up for the newsletter, every one has a recipe towards the bottom of it. Some of them are quite interesting, as the people posting the recipe usually include the origin of it.

    Your comment reminds me of Thanksgiving leftovers. My father would dig out a meat grinder and make "turkey spread". As he got older, his turkey spread became more exciting... and dangerous for consumption. You could measure the progress of his senility by how many unidentifiable things things would get ground up!

    ooooh nooo!!

    noone mentioned coca cola? that's vintage, surely?

    Here in the UK we have Gentleman's relish - has anchovies in it....

    What about Marmite? That's vintage I think. Tomato ketchup? Here it is "Heinz" which is (and I think, has always been) the market leader.

    Spam - bleurgh!
