About This Quiz

There's an old phrase that says that they just don't make them like they used to anymore. While that might be a sad case for automobiles and kitchen appliances, we're sure you'll agree that it doesn't apply to a lot of vintage foods. After we see how many kitchen hits from the past you have bravely tried, we think that we'll be able to tell how old you are. Specifically, we'll know if you are over 60. 

Going into any restaurant these days is a testament to how food trends change over time. It might not be uncommon to be served a sandwich on a toothpick now, but it's no less strange than heading to a potluck with a Tuna and Jello Pie in tow back then. We're sure that we'll look back at our fancy food in 30 years and say yuck, too! 

As we go through this vintage food quiz, we're going to ask you which ones you've tried. After we see your responses, we think we'll get an accurate portrait of your age based upon your food knowledge. If you did try it, be honest. If you didn't put it in your mouth, consider yourself lucky! Will we get your age right once you tell us?
