I have no idea why I have been craving Whistle Pops lately, but I am. They weren’t just a gimmick candy — they had their own taste and it was really damned good. And you could let the whole world know that you were lucky enough to buy candy from the ice cream man.
Anyway, Wikipedia informs me that these went off of the market for a few years. Were they just no longer popular? Kids these days. And then they were reintroduced to the market, but now they’re renamed “Melody Pops.”
That is absolutely absurd. They’re Whistle Pops.
