Are you a picky eater when it comes to these vintage foods?

Do these classic ingredients make you hungry or queasy?


Aunt Bee has a talent for cooking plenty of tasty meals and treats for Andy and Opie Taylor. Apple crumb cake, potato pancakes, fried chicken…. There's a whole list of dishes that keep the boys full and happy. 

The only thing she can't seem to get right? Her aptly named homemade "kerosene" pickles. Andy, Barney and the rest may enjoy a pickle, but only when they are properly pickled, like the store-bought ones or Clara Johnson's.

This got us thinking; not everyone likes pickles to begin with. In fact, there are probably plenty of vintage foods and flavors that people didn't enjoy when growing up.

We've compiled a list of popular ingredients and we're curious; how much of a picky eater were/are you when it comes to these vintage foods?

I'll take Miracle Whip instead of Mayo, what's Ambrosia? NO BOOZE. No FISH. NO artificial food. No Green Food (Except Iceberg Lettuce and pickles and sweet peas). I like the DEVILled part but not the ham in a can part. Send them home to Austria.

Pickels? YES, as long as they are Bread-and-butter.

53% for me. I'm a tad picky. No Spam for me when I can have Black Forest ham ☺🤗.

That's right. But, fried Spam on camping trips is something to be reckoned with on a cold, dark night. Hits the spot!

Where have you been? I just got a like on my post from this 18 months later. Some ask about you and not heard from like over a year.

Love pickles!! Love that episode too. I know it's silly to think of but why doesn't Aunt Bee try her pickles until half way through the story, after they were swapped with store bought in the "prickle switch"?

Some of these I had my fill of when I was a kid and don't care for them now. Jello, pickles, olives...but I still like liver and onions!

I ate liver as a kid. Wouldn't touch it now.

Spam! Yum!
I grew up with Spam every Saturday for breakfast. If it's grilled like ham or bacon, it ain't bad.
