Nelson's Ice Cream makes them still. The ones Hershey makes with the single stick are not true Vanilla popsicles, they are made with Splenda (yuck)

I got mine from Russo's. They are the real deal, in the thin cardboard box- total old school. But you should be able to special order them from anyone that Nelson's does business with.

I couldn't wait, I just called Maple Springs Pools. The girl who answered didn't know where the pool got the popsicles, but she said they were called Nelson's Twinpops. I tried looking up Nelsons on the internet, but I haven't had any luck so far, maybe JL will be able to glean more information in person!

*UPDATE*

found the manufacturer

Now I'll have to call them during business hours!

That is awesome news JL!
I literally jumped off of the couch last night when I read that you know of a place where vanilla twin pops are still sold. I will make my way to the swimming pool in Birdsboro the next chance I get.

I never updated my post, but I did actually stop by the Hershey Ice Cream factory. I rang the bell and they had me come upstairs. Sadly they no longer make the vanilla twin pops, but they say that they still get inquiries about them. They were kind enough to give me a complimentary gift certificate for a free pint of icecream.

Best of luck finding the manufactorer JL. My uncle used to buy boxes of vanilla and root beer twin pops exactly as you describe them, plain, thin, brown cardboard boxes with 2 dozen Popsicle in each one.

I've been hunting for them for years! Not vanilla ice-cream flavored, no milk, just vanilla. Like others here have said, white to off-white/yellowish in color. Strong Vanilla flavor. Twin pops with two sticks.

Hershey made them, so did Jack & Jill.
I see that link for Hershey has a "vanilla ice pop". It looks like the old vanilla twin pop, but singular, with one stick.
It is the flavor I crave. But I was fond of breaking them in half, eating one down to the stick, and then using that bare stick to rub on the remaining half of the twin pop for an Italian ice effect.
I'm fortunate to live only a few blocks away from the Hershey Ice Cream factory. I'll head there Monday and report on my findings.
