7 green and yellow vegetables! they don't even name them!! just green and yellow! as if this wasn't bad enough, you've got vegetables with no name!

There's something really disturbing about this, but I can't quite locate why. The succotash seems especially irksome, but there's no refuge in whatever that brown stuff is.
By not naming the vegetables they could can-up anything that might have been available. Better margins! Like "fruit salad" that is really melon salad with a single strawberry placed on top. Cheap crap. They probably couldn't get away with this with today's labelling laws. They'd probably have to say "MAY contain scraps of beans, corn, pumpkin, peas, turnip...."
I'm sure it's whatever salvageable scraps are left that cosmetically couldn't be put in the higher-priced brand's packaging. Like they said, thrifty.
My mom used to buy veg all back in the 70s. They can't name the vegetables because no matter what color they are they all taste the same. Kinda like canned fruit salad which she also thought was great. BLEH
I can't believe this is the "good old home cooking" that people say they pine for now. I mean, don't get me wrong... I still get cravings for the original Banquet TV dinners in the foil tray so I know what it's like. It's just... you know, this stuff wasn't as gourmet or homemade as some people would like to remember lol!

i had one, and only one, experience with veg-all. when my now-husband and i first moved in together, we were extraordinarily poor and everything we ate came out of a can; it was a year before we had the scratch for fresh produce.

but whatever i made with the veg-all was so bad we had to throw it out and empty the trash that same night. total horror show. :D
"A delightful blend of Carrots, Potatoes, Celery, Sweet Peas, Green Beans, Corn, and Lima Beans in a light onion broth."

They're still making it!

I would eat this. Once. Just to see what hamburgers from a can tasted like...
Yes. Looks like something I'd eat. I like Veg-all, and I like hamburgers.
