I missed many of the last ones. I never heard of cloud eggs. Rainbow bagels never hit here either. I still like the cabbage soup diet.

The Swanson fried chicken dinner was a huge treat when I was a kid.
Rainbow cookies were popular when my children were young. The store bakery always have a free cookie to children. We did have rainbow bagels and bread for a short time.

I had a unicorn cake for my birthday this year. DD picked it out. I loved it.

Growing up we LOVED when our parents went out to dinner and we were able to have a true TV dinner. They were such a special treat for us.

I still have a great recipe for a pineapple cheese ball that is a family staple at the holidays.

AND CUPCAKES! I love a good cupcake piled high with icing! The more icing the better!

Some of the others I never had or even had heard of.

Rainbow bagels and freakshakes (never heard them called that) are still very popular here.

I hope we never see a retro resurgence of jello salads. I was forced to eat many as a kid and hated them.

I miss wine coolers!

I didnít know any of the best discontinued snack foods of my decades from your other thread, but I definitely knew Hubba Bubba, which I loved when I was a teen.

Some of those Iíve never heard of, some (like cake pops) I never liked or understood.

Cheese balls were a staple at family gatherings but I never liked them.

TV dinners were a rare treat in my home growing up. I loved them. I remember the metal tray, the mashed potatoes, and usually an apple/cherry cobbler.

And we had TV trays which were folding tables we would pull out of the closet and eat at.

It was taking too long to see each slide, so I only saw a few.
We rarely, practically never got to eat TV dinners.
Anything with gelatin should never, ever return.
Loved the cabbage soup...not as a diet, though.

Cabbage is an awesome vegetable packed with nutrients, and I have it in one form or another every day. Cabbage soup sounds great. I'll make that today.

Even though I rarely eat cupcakes, I get a craving very once in a while, and know the perfect little bakery to get one. It gets dangerous when they have a 2 for 1 special on their day-old cupcakes.

that the cupcake trend was over. Yesterday I left over a hundred cupcakes for their backyard wedding. Eight flavors with ten different frostings.

I'll skip it since I see from keltikmom that they are slides, so I'll just comment on the things other people noted

Growing up in elementary/middle school, TV dinners were literally the school lunch. We also ate the at home occasionally. They took forever to cook in the oven for our largish family.

Love Hubba Bubba! And I didn't know cupcakes were "over." I think they make a lot of sense.

I was just watching GBBS and there were rainbow bagels as their technical challenge. I wonder if they were the same kind! Unicorn cakes were also a big thing on the Sugar Rush cooking competition for at least a few episodes.

And I remember the year I was working in a school (as a 21yo) where every older woman on staff was doing the cabbage soup diet. The smell in that tiny teacher's lounge

Cloud eggs
Old 10-11-2020, 01:48 PM
  #11

I never heard of these.

In 2017, cloud eggs was another lightning trend that was spurred on by a social media frenzy. The woolly-looking eggs are made by separating the egg white and yolk, beating the whites into a meringue-like fluff, then reuniting the two parts for cooking. The result is a silky yolk with a fluffy white, but personally we prefer a good old-fashioned fried egg. If you want to try it out for yourself, take a look at the recipe here.

Ramen Burger

These were new to me.


Ramen burger
The ramen burger craze was a whirlwind. In 2013, ramen expert Keizo Shimamoto debuted the creation at the Smorgasburg outdoor food market in Brooklyn, New York. Itís a beef patty sandwiched between two boiled and seared noodle buns. You can still head to the market to try one but the hype has mostly died down.

We lived the life of true European immigrants but in the center of Los Angeles. I did feel too ethnic for the geographical location but so did many of my Irish friends.. When I went to my friends house only one mom didn't cook and we got tv dinners in front of the tv. Such a marvel!

That mom also prepared something called Hamburger Helper, mashed potato insta flakes, and a new kind of porridge

Never did the Cabbage Soup diet, but tried Atkins. I had kidney stones and was in the E/R, a doctor asked if I was doing Atkins because they were finding that people were doing the diet and with all the protein were getting kidney stones. My stones came from too much calciumn.

I don't know who cupcakes, red velvet cakes or cheeseballs are out of favor. There were a few other things I found strange to think they weren't popular.

I went on to read some other food traditions. It was fun reading about the different foods.

The Swanson dinner was such a big treat for us! I loved them, especially the little dessert that was in it. Like someone else mentioned, we would pull out the TV trays and eat them in the living room while watching TV.

I still like cheesballs, red Velvet cake, and cupcakesó the more frosting, the better!

Thereís a link to turn it into a list on one page.

A lot of those Iím fine with dying out, but cheese balls and bacon will never not be trending in my heart.

Thanks for the tip! So many sites don't seem to give me that option, but I do appreciate those that do.

The gold chicken wings are nuts! So are the ramen burgers I thought the raw food diet was still going strong. My daughter loves cake pops from Starbucks

I'm pretty sure cupcakes will never be "out." And Starbucks is still rocking the cake pops! We still have cheeseballs at family gatherings. What's not to love?

The "clean eating"/raw food thing is still very big, at least in my area.

I've never had a traditional "TV dinner" like the ones pictured. My mother would have been horrified at the thought .

I don't think I remember hearing about the cloud eggs, but "cloud bread" (made from egg whites, if I'm remembering correctly) really had a moment there. That's one that I don't feel like I hear about much anymore.

I can never get enough icing on a cupcake! MMMMM! More icing for me!

My son did Atkins on and off and did get a couple of kidney stones.

I liked the grapefruit diet back in the late seventies. I remember coming home for lunch during the day and making a hamburger patty and eating a grapefruit. Lost weight but not sustainable.

My mom would have been horrified at the thought of TV dinners, too. She was such a good cook.

Enjoyed the slides.
