Anyone who grew up in the '70s probably remembers the Saturday morning dance and music show on tv called "Soul Train." It lasted for decades, and now in Chicago they're celebrating the 40th anniversary of this longest running syndicated program in television history! Does anyone remember the Soul Train line? There were memorable performances and music from that line- totally synchronized. Besides celebrating Motown, R & B, soul, hip hop, and the occasional disco music, the program showcased the latest fashion trends and hair styles. Soul Train was created by Don Cornelius and aired from 1971 to 2006. It started the same year that "All in the Family" made its debut.

Thinking of the '70s makes me nostalgic for the crazy clothes that we wore, although the only time I would wear something like that today would be on Halloween. Hot pants, bell bottoms, and platform shoes were in for the women, and men wore tight pants and shirts; sometimes even full bodysuits! Fake fur and wildly colored prints were totally in, as were extreme hair styles. Mullets, shags, and afros were seen everywhere.

For some candy nostalgia, Cherry Pop Rocks, Skittles, Jelly Belly Beans, Reese's Pieces, Twix Caramel candy bar, and Saf-T-Pops were all candies that came along in the '70s.
Going back to the time Soul Train was just getting started, you may remember some of these candies: Chuckles, Dots, Fun Dip, Pixy Stix, Mary Janes, Hot Dog chewing gum, Bonomo's Turkish Taffy, Candy Buttons on Paper, and Kits. It's fun to go back in time to remember tv shows you used to watch and the candy you ate.
