Pudding Pops, frosty Popsicle treats originally made and marketed by Jell-O, were first launched with Bill Cosby acting as spokesperson. He marketed them as "Puddin' Pops!"

Pudding Pops originated in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in the 1970s in the United States of America.[citation needed] In its first year, it earned $100,000,000, and after 5 years, it was earning $300,000,000 a year. Despite strong sales into the 90s, Pudding Pops were eventually discontinued due to not being profitable.

After being absent for a time, they were reintroduced to grocery stores[citation needed] under the Popsicle brand name. However, due to differences in texture to the original and different shape, popularity never reached its predecessors which resulted in them beginning to be pulled from stores around 2011.[1]

Pudding Pops come in a variety pack of chocolate, vanilla and chocolate-vanilla swirl, which have 90 calories per serving, 3 grams of fat, and 15 grams of carbohydrates.
