Saturday Superstore: Alphabetti Spaghetti

Alphabetti Spaghetti Advert - Radio Times 1970
Look what you getti with Alphabetti Spaghetti proclaimed this delightful advert from the back of Radio Times in the summer of 1970. An Exclusive Children's 3-piece Melamine table set for 80p was yours along with 2 Crosse and Blackwell Alphabetti Spaghetti labels.

Lets face it - anything that orange was certainly stylish back in the early 70s - anyone still got this set?

My memories of Alphabetti Spaghetti are pretty much the same as any noodle shaped product that professes to be a letter, a number or a character from a cartoon series. I get bored with identification after the fifth noodle because my food is getting cold and I'm starving!

Probably explains why it took me an age to learn the alphabet!

  1. It's beautifully 1960s. Funny how the first few years of the 1970s were so saturated with 1960s leftovers. But then the 1960s were a very creative time.
