Is it just me or did food in the 80's look gross?

So, I was looking at these old advertisements I found at my moms house from the 80's & all the food looks SO GROSS! Did food look gross back then? Or is it just that the pictures were not taken as well as they are now? I can't remember if I thought it looked good when I was little. What do you guys think?

I think it's a couple of things, Liv. For one thing, food ads have always looked pretty gross. Take a look at any recent magazine and you won't see much that's different. Nobody makes those weird cakes from the Sunday newpaper pullouts, do they? Also, today we're used to saturated colors and high contrast in our photos (though that wouldn't improve these gross photos).

Mike - I think you may be wrong. Food must have looked grosser when I was little because I never wanted to eat my dinner. Now we've finally discovered why...
