J-E-L-L

Oh my God these are delicious. Jell-O Pudding Pops, welcome back into my life. After more than a decade puddin' pop-less agony, the drought is over.

Do you remember these? I used to eat them all the time when I was a kid. And then one day, I woke up, and they were gone! Ripped from my grasp! For half of my life, I wandered the freezer isles of H-E-B, longing for my lost confection. My quest came to it's end today in the Bellevue Safeway. God be praised.

The best part of a Jell-O Puddin' Pop is the way that they develop an icy layer around the outside of the pop. If you've ever had one, you know what I mean. I love to use my tongue to gently lift the ice off the pop, and eat it separately. It's almost like unwrapping a Christmas present. A present wrapped in delicious pudding-vapor ice.

BTW1: It rained today. 23.
BTW2: Jeff, nice to hear from you! Glad to see you found the site!

  2. I think they were brought back into stores last year, because I had found them in the HEB. I went nuts when I first saw them again and bought like 4 boxes of these delicious treats.
