8 Vintage Foods That Bring Back Nostalgic Memories

Creamed Chipped Beef

It's a white bechamel sauce with tiny pieces of fried beef, while other people top toast with hamburger meat or another type of meat. "That was something we alternated with Chicken a la King," says an individual who grew up in the 1970s. 

Round Steak

A new forum poster makes the joke, "My mom cooked round steak, so it was like a hockey puck." Although I haven't eaten one, round steaks aren't very popular because of their bland taste and texture.

Chicken à la King

In the 1980s, this dish was a British household favorite. It is served on buttered bread with chicken and gravy that has been completed with cream. We served our family's version over boiled rice and fried onions and peppers.

Organ Meat

Ketogenic diet are starting to embrace organ meat. This sentiment is shared by others in the thread. One of them says, "But if you want them, you have to go to a specialty butcher, and they are no longer cheap."

Liver and Onions

Someone who has liver flashbacks remarks, "I couldn't stand to be in the house the day my mom cooked it." "I'd come home from school, walk in the house and instantly know what it was, (then) I'd walk back outside."

Lime Green Jello Salad

"A lot of things I haven't seen in a while." "Lime green jello with carrots and marshmallows comes to mind." This remark made me pause, so I quickly looked it up.

Hamburger Helper

 I was unsure of how to feel about this product when I first saw it. I figured it was a spice to enhance the flavor of hamburgers. Ground hamburger meat is used to cook a package of freeze-dried carbohydrates and seasonings known as Hamburger Helper.

Shrimp Cocktail

 "Shrimp Cocktail, sold refrigerated in six-packs of small glass jars." "Was so tasty, and the jars could be used as drinking glasses afterward." Shrimp cocktail is not something I miss.
