Do you remember vanilla popsicles?

I used to buy ones which were made by Hershey Ice Cream a side company of Hershey Chocolates. But in the past 2 years, I have been able to get them at the snack bar at my pool. I can't remember who manufactures the ones which I buy at my pool. I will have to go there this weekend, then I can get the manufacturer's name and such from the packaging. I'll let you know as soon as I find out.

You can buy bags of 18 banana twin pops at the Super Wal-marts. They have a bag which is various flavors and then one which is all banana. They are less then $2.00 for the bag of 18 (I'm in Reading, PA. It's about an hour or so from Philadelphia.), but they are very good. I just ate an entire bag in about 20 hours yesterday. The vanilla ones are the best flavor of all though.

When I was a kid, my father worked for a company called Bob White's which sold food in bulk. I came to find out later when I began buying the vanilla twinpops at the corner store, that Bob White's had sold a box of twinpops which were all vanilla flavored. They also sold indivdual flavors root beer, cherry, and orange in bulk packages. There were about 20 or 30 popsicles in a box. I remember the boxes were a thin cardboard material with basically nothing printed on them.

Another frozen treat which the company sold was cho-chos. They were a chocolate flavored ice cream pop, but what was different about them was each pop was basically a small dixie cup (similar to the large bathroom cups dixie used to have available for in your bathroom) which had been filled with the ice cream when it was soft, then a wooden popsicles stick was inserted and they were then frozen. Cho-chos would be in bags with 25 or more pops per bags. One of the grocery stores in my area used to carry them along time ago. I'd have to say it's been 15 years since I had one last, I would love to find out where to buy them as well. If anyone knows, please tell me.

Do you remember vanilla popsicles?

Several years ago, a friend of mine said about how they loved vanilla twinpops. So when I said I had never had one, we went on a search and found some at a corner grocery store in Reading, PA (the store was in downtown Reading, not one of the suburbs whose mailing address is Reading, PA 19***). The ones which were in this little store were made by Hershey Ice Cream.

I know I went back to that same store many times to buy them again. Why I stopped I'm not sure.

But last year my mother-in-law bought a pool membership at Maple Springs Pool in Birdsboro for our family and to my delight the snack bar had vanilla twin pops along with Cherry, Orange, Grape, Blue Rasberry, and Root Beer. I would buy however many they had left of the vanilla and root beer each day last summer before the snackbar closed or I left, whichever came first.

We continued our membership at the pool this summer and the fiirst day which I went i stopped by the snack bar to see if they still carried them. They do, but I cannot get to the pool as often as I did last year and it got expensive buying them there indivdually. I decided to look on the internet to see if I could find out where I could buy them. I'd likely cut my costs in half buying a whole box instead of the individual pops. I don't know why I can't remember who makes the twinpops which I get at the pool. I'll have to get there over the weekend. Once I can get the manufacturer information off the wrapper, I will let everyone know.
