It was one of the most common foods during the teenage and adulthood of boomers. They love to eat Vienna sausage. It's a canned food that contains beef or pork sausages. Other generations consider it a gross food as it is eaten cold. You may open its can and eat it directly. But it has such a strong smell that it can make anyone feel nauseous.

If you ask today's generation about frozen food, most will say they hate it. Boomers had eth guts to like and enjoy the frozen dinners. Frozen meals are terrible for your health as they contain many preservatives and additives. It is even evident that you are not eating something fresh at all.

Cereals are usually eaten at breakfast. They have been a pretty popular food for a long time. For boomers, bran cereal was one of their favorite breakfasts.

5. Spaghettios

Spaghetti is a canned food that has pasta in it. Being a canned food makes it one major cause why Millennials cancel it. Preservatives, additive salts, and sugar make the food lose all its healthy nutrition. So, it can be a favorite food for boomers, but this generation likes freshly made pasta.

6. Grits

It is a savory dish that is served with cheese or butter. It's a traditional dish of coarsely ground corn that you can enjoy with spices on top. This one is more of a Southern word that is not much common. Maybe it's the taste of the dish that makes it less popular among the current generation.

7. Sardines

Sardines is another canned food that has small and oily fish in it. If you open the can, its smell will immediately turn you off. It has no appeal or flavor that you can get from fresh fish. Trying it will tell you its horrible smell is the primary cause of many disliking this dish.

8. Desserts Made With Canned Fruit

9. Bologna Sandwich

For those who don't know what a Bologna sandwich is, it's a sandwich with highly processed meat. It could be made of beef or pork with high sodium and fats. It's about the texture of the meat that is so soft and slimy that it turns off the eaters. Besides, it's not as healthy as other meats.

10. Creamed Corn

Can you eat corn with a creamy texture? The majority of people will say they cannot eat anything as such. Boomers loved this dish made of corn and sweet cream or butter. It is the texture and also the sweetness of the creamy corm that people don't like to eat it. Maybe the combination does not align with the taste of this generation.

11. Chicken Pot Pie
