    I know I'm a little slow to catch on to things sometimes, and this one happened quite a while ago. I was walking through my supermarket's frozen foods department when I realized I wanted some JELL-O Pudding Pops. I saw that they didn't have them, and that is when i realized that I haven't seen them in about 10 years. A little thinking brought me to come up with making my own, which I will do shortly, but I also found an online pettiion to get them back.

    so tell everyone you know to help save the pudding pops @

    The exact same thing happened to me a while back. Weird how they just disappeared.

    tragic indeed. But can somebody please explain to an ignorant European import (me) what the deal is with those JELL-O Pudding Pops ? What was so great about them, why do you miss them ? Just trying to figure out another piece to the great American puzzle... ;)

    Well i suppose it's a mixture of things for me:

    1. I do love the way they taste, frozen pudding, pretty simple, taste great.

    2.It's something my mom used to get for me and my sister as a child, so i suppose there's a whole connection with my child thing.

    3.It was a bit of pop culture with the whole Bill Cosby thing and odly enough, it seems like they stopped using him for promotions on it and shortly after they pulled them.

    I will support the op all the way, i love the pops, basically none others suffice. Some come close but fall short of the glory of the pudding pops...

    yeah, every once in a while i get a craving and decide "i'm going to go get pudding pops!", but i have to remind myself that they're many years off the market. Pretty sad. i've heard you can get them in very limited areas in the US but i don't know if this is true.
