Push a Push Pop

I am a sucker for a novelty candy, but the push pop never appealed to me. Why? Because I am a lot like the owl that impatiently cracks his way to the center of Tootsie Roll pop. No lollipop I have ever owned had needed to be “Saved for later”. Still I love the concept and their commercials are very memorable.

  1. Those cherry ones were goooood! But watching the commercial now, kind of… makes me uncomfortable, lol! Perhaps why we don’t see them that often nowadays! That and it just hit me how gross the concept of saving something that’s already been in your mouth for later…

  2. I prefer putting my Push Pop in the front right top pocket of my denim jacket. That way it is easily acceptable and everyone can see it.
