Back in the 80s, you could buy an entire set of lifelike plastic and cardboard "groceries" for CHEAP to outfit your kitchen playset. The groceries cam packaged in a long see-thru net with a cardboard header and included colorful plastic soda/milk bottles, cheese, butter, eggs (in a real egg carton!), and canned foods, plus empty cardboard boxes of cereal, crackers, laundry detergent, frozen foods, etc. The labels were all replicas of actual product packaging labels of the era. The cost was quite inexpensive, even for the time. A deluxe grocery set was also sold in plastic shopping carts.

I had play groceries that were made of cardboard and very small in size, they had real labels on them, they also came with small sized cans of food, which were made of plastic. I had the supermarket that went with them which was made of red plastic.
