All things human



I often wish that I could find some of the “oldy goldy” products that we used to have in the 60s, 70s, and 80s….does anyone remember these? Oh my gosh just looking for pictures of some of the retro candy brought back such great memories…I WANT A MALTED MILK!!! and I can still remember what Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific smells like….I’d love to hear about other products from the decades that you remember….

Here’s a suggestion from a reader….drink from the 90s in Canada:


Orbitz, retro drink






And another one from a reader…oh my gosh I remember collecting these and sending away for something…can’t remember what it was, but at the time, it was a “I HAVE TO GET IT MUM”…

Lik-m-aid, retro candy






I found   Candy Warehouse  and Groovy Candies that sell lots of different old fashioned candy. Plus Vermont Country Store has lots of classic products that can be ordered online.

  5. I remember my Grandma had a jar of chicken fat in the refrigerator. That was the original Crisco for cooking. She took the fat from a chicken she bought at the butcher. I remember we went to the butcher and saw chickens hanging upside down by hooks. Their heads had been removed. She would squeeze the neck. If blood came out the chicken was good to buy as it was fresh. No blood meant old and therefore could be negotiated with the butcher for a cheaper price.
