    Ha ha! I was going to say, who wants to eat that crap they made in the 60's? Ironically, I collect those old cookbooks from that time because I have a morbid fascination with the culinary dark ages.

    I Love You Alice B. Toklas brownies and Haschish (sp) fudge.  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif Oh, and ambrosia.  Ick.  Seriously, boxed mixes, Hostess and Drake's products, i.e. Ho Ho, ding dongs, ring dings, twinkies, yankee doodles, devil dogs.  And, growing up in New York, bakery cakes or Entennman's anything. LOL. 

    ETA: You might look up Twinkie-Misu. (Tiramisu made with Twinkies.)  It would be better than the ghastly food/desserts from the era.

    P.S.  "If you remember the 60's, you weren't really there." /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif
