Came across this today.
Eating in the 1950's Enjoy! Pasta had not been invented. Curry was a surname. A takeaway was a mathematical problem. A pizza was something to do with a leaning tower. Bananas and oranges only appeared at Christmas. All crisps were plain, the only choice was whether you had salt on or not. A Chinese chippy was a foreign carpenter. Rice was a milk... pudding, and never, ever, part of a 'dinner'. A Big Mac was what we wore when it was raining. Brown bread was something that only poor people ate. Oil was for lubricating, fat was for cooking. Tea was made in a teapot using tea leaves and never green. Coffee was Camp and came in a bottle. Cubed sugar was regarded as posh. Only Heinz made beans. Fish didn't have fingers in those days. Eating raw fish was called poverty, not sushi. No-one had ever heard of yoghurt. Healthy food consisted of anything edible. People who didn't peel potatoes were lazy. Indian restaurants were only found in India. Cooking outside was called camping. Seaweed was not a recognised food. "Kebab" was not even a word, never mind a food! Sugar enjoyed a good press in those days and was regarded as 'white gold'. Prunes were medicinal. Surprisingly, muesli was readily available, it was called cattle feed. Pineapples came in chunks in a tin; we had only ever seen a picture of a real one. Water came out of a tap. If someone had suggested bottling it and charging more than petrol for it, they would have been a laughing stock. The only thing that we never, ever, had on our table, were our elbows.
