I HAD to pin this! Flashbacks of my youth, remembering the excitement of receiving a "Pet Rock"! The guy that came up with this idea made MILLIONS!!!! Crazy! But, it's a fond memory of being young in the 70's :)
Pet Rocks were a 1970s collectible conceived in Los Gatos, California by advertising executive Gary Dahl. In April 1975, Dahl was in a bar listening to his friends complain about their pets. This gave him the idea for the perfect "pet": a rock. A rock would not need to be fed, walked, bathed, groomed and would not die, become sick, or be disobedient. The fad lasted about six months and made him a millionaire,
I had a Pet Rock that I took to high school with me many a day in it's cute little carrier.
Original Pet Rock - Wanted... Never got... The BEST part was reading the care manual.
Pet Rocks...Do you still have yours???? I do!! Maybe now it is worth something lol

Pet Rock fad from the 70's
In August, I did a blog entry called "That 70s Surf" with some favorite things from the 70s. Since I've been thinking about the 70s quilts a lot lately, I thought I'd do another 70s Surf blog with more things I remember all too well. Of course, there was the Pet Rock. When I first saw this classic McDonald's Big Mac commercial I had to practice saying "Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun." Even though I was just a kid, I wanted to be smarter than all the grown-ups in the commercial who couldn't get it right. Some people were just in a haze in the 70s, but nothing got past me. That's not to say I wasn't a total goofball. The classic "Manamanah" from Sesame Street was one of the songs I still, to this day, find myself singing. I was busy avoiding schoolwork, watching cartoons, and collecting Wacky Packs. Without question, my favorite food in the 1970s was cereal. Any kind of cereal would do, if it was full of sugar, had cartoon characters and prizes or games. I ate Quisp, Count Chocula, Frankenberry, Boo Berry, King Vitamin, Super Sugar Crisp, Sugar Pops, Cocoa and Fruity Pebbles, Cookie Crisp, and my all-time favorite, Cap'n Crunch! There was regular Cap'n Crunch, Peanut Butter Crunch, Vanilla Crunch, and my absolute favorite, Cap'n Crunch with Crunchberries!! It wasn't until the late 70s that I learned about pizza parlors. Before that, Mom made homemade pizza sometimes but the rest of the time we had Tree Tavern frozen pizza. The Tree Tavern started as a tavern and restaurant on Crosby Avenue in Paterson, New Jersey, and was a landmark location in Paterson through the 1950’s and 1960’s - right in the heart of the city. The Francia family presided over the restaurant from the very beginning. They froze the very first Tree Tavern Pizza in 1955 and was the first frozen pizza ever sold in a supermarket. I would still eat a Tree Tavern pizza, but in 1977 our family moved to south Jersey, closer to Philly than New York. That's where we discovered the local pizza parlor, Sal & Joes. It was similar to the one in the opening scene of Saturday Night Fever. Toward the end of the 70s, disco wasn't as cool as it used to be, so I started listening to classic rock on WMMR in Philadelphia. That's when I discovered Pink Floyd. I don't think I was ever the same after that! Developing an appreciation for time and money was just the beginning.

The original 'Chex Mix'

From the Snack Aisle: doo-dads Company: Nabisco.Years:Late 60's-90's~Nabisco,Doo Dads Introduction magazine ad close-up 1966 by JasonLiebig,via Flickr
Gone But Not Forgotten Groceries: From the Snack Aisle: doo-dads The box was placed upside down in the cupboard, so Mindy read it as "Spap Oop " ;)
A great snack mix that people seem to fondly remember is “doo dads”. It was a snack made up of 5 different parts: Toasted peanuts, pretzels, rice squares, wheat squares & cheese Tid-Bit Crackers. Once a snack staple starting in the late 60s, they really became a childhood favorite of everyone in the 70s/80s. As other snacks hit the market, sales slumped. By the late 90s, "doo dads" were gone.
Gone But Not Forgotten Groceries: From the Snack Aisle: doo-dads. Aka "SPAP OOP"!!
Doo Dads were the ultimate snack mix! I hope Nabisco will start making it again!
Doo Dads........I LOVED these. They were my favorite snack as a kid.
My mom loved these ;)
doo-dads Company: Nabisco Years: Late 60's-90's Image from Jason Liebig Another great Nabisco Snack Mix that people seem to fondly remember is doo dads. It was a snack made up of 5 different parts: Toasted peanuts, pretzels, rice squares, wheat squares and cheese Tid-Bit Crackers (which were so popular you could buy Tid-Bits by themselves). I know it sounds like Chex Mix, but as it turns out, it was nothing even close, so much that if you even compare them to an avid doo-dad lover you will get beaten. They are nothing alike. doo dads are 100X better (or so I've been told). Once a snack staple starting in the late 60s, they really became a childhood favorite of everyone in the 70's/80's. In the 90's, as sales stared to slip due to the influx of chips/crackers/snacks that were in the market, doo dads tried out some new flavors hoping to bring them back to life, but the as the 90's came to a close so did doo dads. (though I have heard people say they lasted into the early 2000's....if anyone can confirm that let me know). 90's "Flavor" box (Cheddar and Herb) - photo by ManKatt I remember eating them as a kid in the 80's, but I don't have the same connection that a lot of people seem to have - eating them while playing board games with the family...snacking on them during long car rides....sharing a box with dad while watching football on Sundays.....doo dads were a popular snack that many people trace back to their youth. Sadly, they are now gone. Will they ever return from extinction? People have been trying to get Nabisco to relaunch them for years now, but we will have to wait and see if doo-dad nation gets their prayers answered. Oh, and if you turn the box upside down, it looks like "spap oop". I've seen lots of people make this observation, so flipping the box must have been a regular occurrence for kids in the 70's and 80's. image by Jason Liebig
