The first TV dinner was sold in 1953 and they gained new life with the popularity of the microwave oven in the 80s. In my house, the occasional TV dinner felt like a real treat. As I grew older, I realized that adults didn't really share that feeling, which is why for the most part, the niche of fast, convenient dinner has been supplanted by the hot prepared foods that are now sold at grocery stores, and soon a "TV dinner" will seem as alien to our children as the idea that you had to watch shows on a TV. less

Here are 10 foods you'll probably remember and your kids will probably never get to enjoy. -By Elizabeth Stark and Brian Campbell
