Gerber Singles

Possibly the most embarrassing and head-scratchingly awful food product release of all time, Gerber Singles were a disaster from top to bottom. Just look at these things! Baby food jars, filled with busted-looking food mush, intended as a meal for one. One adult. Sure, most of us have tried baby food at some point in our adult lives and realized that it tastes fine, but who in their right mind would buy a single-serving of adult-oriented baby food (one depressingly called "Singles" at that), and be comfortable sitting in front of their TV, eating it out of the jar with a little spoon? Released in 1974 and geared toward those hip young college students and people who were living alone for the first time, the baby food for adults, which came in flavors like Creamed Beef, Beef Burgundy, Chicken Madeira, Beef with Mushroom Gravy, Mediterranean Vegetables, and Blueberry Delight, was laughed off the shelves.
