About This Quiz

Were you born between 1946 and 1964? Then you're a Baby Boomer. This quiz is going to bring you back to your childhood. You'll remember foods you loved, food you forgot about and foods you wish you could forget about.

We're going to take a trip back to the 1960s and 1970s to visit the foods Boomers ate growing up. Some foods have had staying power. Baby Boomers grew up eating Pop Tarts and drinking Tang.  When they got older and had children, Boomers bought those products for their kids, who would have equally fond memories of them. Also, most of us would starve if we didn't keep the freezer stocked with frozen meals. Other foods were forgotten with time or became jokes. Baby boomers will have a hard time convincing their children tuna casserole was popular and that Jell-O 1-2-3 was an actual product, not just a recipe Kraft concocted to sell more Jell-O. Although, few people who are not Boomers are going to believe Jell-O salad was real and did not always sound disgusting.


With this quiz, we'll find out if you're a Boomer, too young to be a Boomer or even are a boomer at heart. Even though some of these foods may be hard to find, not all of them have disappeared, which gives new generations a peak into foods of the past. Now it's time to find out how many of the following foods you've tried!
