Check out this spread from The Best of Weight Watchers Magazine 1974.
Can someone please help me understand what is going on here? Has this feast been prepared for some twisted tweener party? Or perhaps it is a potluck dinner gone horribly wrong?
Let's take a closer look...
First we have the Apple and Franks Karachi--baked apples stuffed with diced frankfurter and sprinkled with curry powder. Exotic! Bet you can't eat just one!
Next up is Teentimers Tuna--these tuna roll-ups are combined with.. what else.. pimentos and dehydrated onion flakes! Better hurry up and grab one, because these babies won't last!
Finally--behold the Buttermilk Berserk! This monster gelatine mold is made from 1 quart of buttermilk, lemon juice, allspice, and of course - lots of bright yellow food coloring. Aren't you just dying to try a nice big chunk of this dietetic disaster?
Grab a plate and dig in! Or grab a guitar and start playing! Or someone please grab that teal phone and call 9-1-1!
I wonder why things started getting really scary in 1974? Is it possible that the Weight Watchers recipe developers were getting just a wee bit bored and had become way too creative? I mean, there's only so much you can do with tuna, pimentos, Knox gelatine and celery on a daily basis.
Don't worry folks, I'll be heading back to the safety and comfort of 1972 for my Easter Feast! Stay tuned...
