(Last Thursday of June)
Posted on June 27, 2019
I am not sure I've ever had a Bomb Pop - but apparently these red-white-and-blue popsicles have been really popular ever since they were invented in 1955, when I was just a baby.
Is it the size?
The rocket shape?
The multiple flavors?
The patriotic colors?
The fact that your tongue might not just get colored by eating the popsicle, but it might get multi-color colored?
The fact that you might, on a hot summer day, get multi-color drips down your arm?
Bomb Pops are SO popular, two other companies make pretty much identical looking popsicles - red-white-and-blue rocket-shaped popsicles - and are selling them under different names (Rocket Pop and Firecracker).
And I bet they all sell really well in early July, in time for the "rocket's red glare" and fireworks shows associated with the United States' Independence Day.
By the way, I mentioned multiple flavors, but I neglected to mention WHAT flavors. The original Bomb Pops were cherry, lime, and blue raspberry. And that original flavor popsicle is still available, but the manufacturer, Blue Bunny, also offers:
Watermelon Bomb Pops
Hawaiian Punch Bomb Pops
Banana Fudge Bomb Pops
Tongue Splashers Bomb Pops
Jolly Ranchers Bomb Pops
Sour Power Bomb Pops
Extra Sour Tear Jerkers Bomb Pops
and WARHEADS Bomb Pops.
Oh, and Original Flavor / Sugar Free!
Notice that some of these flavors have different color schemes as well as different flavors.
