You're hot, hangry, and have an aching sweet tooth. You find yourself in the frozen foods section looking for an icy cold treat only to realize the one thing you're craving isn't there. Is the store merely out of stock? Or has it gone away for good, like so many discontinued frozen desserts before it?
Jell-O Pudding Pops
You're not alone if you've ever wondered what happened to your favorite childhood treat, the fudge-like frozen dessert known as Pudding Pops. Delish reports that, on average, 3,600 people search for "jello pudding pops" on Google each month, only to be disappointed when they find out they were discontinued.
Flintstones Push-Up Pops
Yes, Push-Up Pops are still a thing, but you won't find Flintstones Push-Up Pops, and they were arguably the best kinds. The commercials were a hit, too. A rapping Fred Flintstone? Come on!
According to '80s Baby, the Flintstone Push-Ups were introduced in 1990 and stuck around until the late '90s. Nestle had been making them before this, but they took off once they were rebranded with the images of the modern Stone Age family. Of course, the original Flintstone Pops were delicious with flavors like Yabba-Dabba-Do Orange, Lime Rock Lime, and Bedrock Berry. But the Pebbles Push-Ups were dotted with Nerds candy pieces throughout for crunchy ice cream only a kid could love. The CoolCream Sherbet Treats were another favorite from the Flintstones line.
Mickey's Parade Ice Pops
If fruity versions of Mickey Mouse, Minnie, Donald Duck, and Goofy graced your freezer as a kid, you're a child of the '90s. Known as the Mickey's Parade Ice Pops, they were made by the Good Humor ice cream company. In the Mickey's Parade lineup, other frozen treats included the Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bars, Sprinkle Cones, and Paradise Pops. Together, they were billed in the commercial as "a parade you can eat."
The Ice Pops, though, are the best-tasting popsicles in the nostalgic minds of 90s babies. Mickey was cherry flavored, Donald Duck was grape, and oddly enough, both Minnie and Goofy were orange. Couldn't they have offered a fourth flavor — lemon or lime, perhaps?
According to Kenny The Pirate, Mickey's Parade Ice Pops were distributed as early as the 1980s (some say the '90s) and were discontinued in the early 2000s, though it's disputed across the Internet. Were these popsicles as good as we remember, or was it just strangely satisfying to take a bite out of our favorite cartoon characters? Nostalgic fans of the pops have a Facebook group dedicated to bringing back these frozen treats. Let's see if they can make it happen!
