Nostalgia alert!

Retro party dish

When I was growing up no party was complete without a plate with a halved grapefruit on it with toothpicks of cheese cubes, cocktail onions and pineapple pieces.  I think these were called Cheese and Pineapple Hedgehogs.

You don't see this done now – a shame because they were tasty little morsels!  What party foods do you remember that are now out of fashion?


  1. This is so retro! I made one a few years ago to take as a prop to a retro party I went as a housewife, everyone had a good laugh about it :)

  2. Italian cold cuts wrapped around long hard Italian bread sticks.
    They didn't impress the Irish, German and Polish kids at my Sweet Sixteen party in 1966!
    Oh, well, Ma was making what she thought company would expect :-)
