Do You Remember These Wacky Food Trends?

At Mrs. Fields, we're coming up on a big anniversary—35 years to be exact! It's amazing to think about how we've grown from that first simple store in Palo Alto, California in 1977. And while our cookies, brownies, and gourmet treats have become American classics, some of these food trends from that era were not so lucky.
