Just found our daughters' box with the machine, cookbook and all in the attic. Papa said, "It does not say how to make the the batter". I laughed and told him it came in a packet. Oh, well. we shall give her back her machine. Today she is 50!

A few minutes ago this scent wafted through my office and I immediately thought of the Incredible Edibles toy I had. I can still conjure up the taste in my head (buy who really wants to)? Ugh - I'm sure the goop was made out of old car tires.

All the same it's nice to have something transport you back to childhood.

Just the other day I bought some special K protein water strawberry/kiwi and it reminded me of the taste. Its so weird how they have such a strong impact on our gernerations lives.

I got it for Christmas 1967,and remember being totally thrilled. When we ran out of goop, I used it to cook bacon and even tried popcorn! I have a picture of the box sitting next to me, but the machine is long gone...

Well just decided to take a look down memory lane after watching the cooking show last night. It was about retro stuff...well back in 1964 it was Christmas time and my best friend that lived accross the street from me we were so excited I had asked for the incredible ediable and she the easy bake oven.Well we had a fuss and weren't speaking to eachother. Well ya know how it used to be you couldn't be mad at your best friend too long. We both wanted to play with eachothers new stuff and show off. Well being 8 yrs. old and not really thinking that you had to have electicity to run the little gadgets..we both went out to the curb and started acting like we were cooking our stuff. We were friends again :) And to this day we are still Best Friends and talk at least once a day.

I can't believe there are others who remember the fun gobble-degoop oven. I loved baking and this toy oven provided endless hours in the Colorado winters of fun for me and my sisters, in fact, I still have my oven from 1966 and I'm 49 and holding.

My brother and I got an incredible edible a couple years after getting a Thing Maker. Just because we ran out of the goop to make things with it didn't stop the dangerous fun we could think up as wild and crazy kids with a free licence to destroy every plastic toy we could find in our toybox. After runing out of them we resorted to the best of all, just hacking up the biggest lugi we could and spitting it on the burner to watch it sizzle away.What a great time in history, toys that destroyed toys, how great was that?

I got mine in 1966 or 67. Worms, centipedes, snakes, bugs; it was a riot! I remember the licorice, cinnamon and root beer, but not any others. In those days, you learned to respect toys by getting burned, cut, stung, shocked; todays toys just aren't any challenge! I had this, VacuForm, Creepy Crawlers, Lost In Space Switch and Go, Major Matt Mason; I didn't realize how cool my folks were for getting me all that stuff!

This was one of my favorites, and I made and ate and ate and ate--rootbeer was by far the best tasting one, with licorice and cherry close behind---what a great toy!

My brother and I had one and they were the nastiest crap i've ever ingested.. but danged if we didnt keep making them and eating them. Mixing the flavors even made them worse.

My friends at work and I were just talking about these the other day (I just found your site!) My brother had Incredible Edibles and Creepy Crawlers. It really is amazing to look back at the dangerous stuff kids from the '60s were allowed to play with. I remember the nasty, plastic (even the edible version) smell while they cooked, but I loved the licorice flavor! I'd forgotten about that nasty mint... Gross stuff! And, for me, the tutti frutti was barely tolerable. *LOL*

My most vivid memory of Incredible Edibles is making some after the Gobbeldy-Goo was past it's prime and throwing up for hours afterwards. It was the absolutely vile-tasting stuff ever.

God I remember the smell too. It was like a sweet, burnt, rubbery smell. And we had these tiny, little green plastic tweezer things that you clipped onto the little metal molds to get them out of the burner. I can't believe we had these kinds of toys, unsupervised, and didn't die or end up horribly maimed, LOL

Seeing the Incredible Edibles on this website sure is one of the best blast from the past memories for me. Oh What a Christmas it was when I got this gift. Excellent and fun for children sure wish they made it again. I would buy a few for the grandchildren.

I can remember the tutti frutti taste to this day. It was rubbery in your mouth but very tasty. The neighbor kids would come over and eat my tutti frutti.

We received one in the early 70's for Christmas,there were six kids in my family so it got a work out. I also remember the bad taste and smell that came along with. Wonderful memories. The other machine that made the small cakes was called Kooky Kakes, (remember).

OMG! I used to play with this in the (carpeted) front entry. I had burns all over my hands and arms from the "thingmaker". I would never let my daughter play unsupervised with this! But those were the days of no seat belts, no sunscreen and bank tellers smoking. Hey, we all lived thru it and had a heck of a time! Gosh I loved those incredible edibles. I also had creepy crawlers (?)

This one isn't the one I remember from the 60"s. The one we had came with the worst tasting goo a chemist ever created and you cooked these in little pans like molds. Man "O" Still wish we had it,I'd make a dozen for my little (46) Brother.

I remember my friend's brother had Incredible Edibles and would not let us play with it, and her sister had another toy where you made cakes (kind of like an easy bake oven but it wasn't) and you put feelers and eyes on them and made them look like bugs. I think the feelers were made from that shoestring licorice. Does anyone remember that one? What was it called?

They were disgusting! I remember the distinct smell and strange taste to this day. The only flavor that I liked was a purple tutti fruiti one. Sometimes we would just eat the goop straight out of the packet. Gross!

The absolute WORST flavor was the green mint and I should know because I threw it up! Not only did it cause me to puke but I remember there was a burning sensation in my throat and and I'm still not a huge mint fan as a result. The mint incredible edibles is one of those things from childhood or from college drinking days that years later it would still make you queasy and what to vomit merely from being around it.

My mother worked for Mattel Toy Company while I was growing up. Because of this, my sisters and I were 'sample kids'. We would test new toys for Mattel Toy Company. I was one of the test kids for Incredible Edibles. I remember having lots of fun during the sample day making the worms, spiders and bugs, then eating them.

I have been looking for this for so many years! I to often smell something that reminds me of my youth and my favorite toy. If anyone has one, I will certainly buy one!
