From the Frozen Foods Dept.: I Hate Corn and I Hate Beets

"I Hate Beets" and "I Hate Corn"
Company: American Kitchen
Date: 70's

The other day I posted about the wonderfully brilliant concept of American Kitchen to combine vegetables kids hate with french Fries, thinking kids wouldn't notice that they were being duped and grow up to be big and strong like their Uncle Carl, or better yet, The Incredible Hulk. I mentioned that there were other flavors besides "I Hate Peas", and came across 2 more flavors and just had to post them to the archives.

So Behold: I Hate Beets & I Hate Corn

I wonder if all the packages have a cartoon image of a little girl on it. I'm seeing a pattern here.....I mean, come on, boys hate vegetables just as much as girls do. One of the packages must have a boy on it. Right? Anyone have any other variations they can send me?


  1. There was also an I Hate Carrots which has a boy on it. I have it, need to find it and post a picture.

  2. I feel like someone tried making something similar a few years ago.

  3. Corn is not a vegetable and both beets and corn are GMO. I wonder if this is why they wanted to push them on kids.

    1. I know this is a late response, but gmos were not really out in the 70s. They started coming out in the mid to late 80s.
