These were the originals! Otter Pops came second. They were plastic tubes filled almost all the way with flavored juice then you freeze them and you would cut off the top and it eat like a push-up

the kelly pops that I ate growing up in the southwest weren't like that. I remember green ones (apple?) and red ones (cherry) and they seemed kind of homemade-- they were wrapped in white wax paper or something. It was kind of slick and they came already frozen on a stick and the tops were flat-- like they'd been cut off. But they were really long and tall cylinders. And they came in a bag of like 20 or something. I absolutely adored those things. They are one of my all-time favorite memories of growing up in the 80s. Does anyone else remember Kelly Pops that way? Know what I'm talking about? But I remember Otter pops, too. I'd totally forgotten them until now -- I liked those too.:-)

I remember the one on the stick, our school sold them. They were the best, no other popcicle can match the flavors and colors.

My first job was at a Kelly Pop In Phoenix Arizona. Then owned by Joe Wolf. I was dating his daughter at the time, Julie. Julie and I would spend most of the time in the freezer making out! Best job, Best time, Best girl! Wish I could find her now. Joe was a great boss! Time of my life! Thanks kelly pop! help me find julie!

I landed here after googling Kelly Pops. I can't believe no one has a picture. I was telling my daughter that she was eating a banana one day and said, "This banana is so good. It tastes like a Kelly Pop!" We laughed because it was true. Banana Kelly Pops literally tasted better than bananas. I had a banana flavoured popsicle Jay yesterday and it was no where near as good. I miss banana Kelly Pops!

So, for the longest time I thought I was the only one on the internet looking for information about Kelly Pops. I distinctly remember having Kelly Pops as a kid in the 80s in Memphis, Tennessee. If memory serves we use to get them in bags of either 12 or 20 from the Cash & Carry at or near 1152 Airways Boulevard, intersecting Spottswood Avenue. As a few of you have previously mentioned, Kelly Pops were the most flavorful Popsicle like product one could ever have. @Dan, the banana Kelly Pops were one of my favorites too! I also like the orange, grape, watermelon, pineapple, and the root beer favored ones. The closest thing I’ve ever been able to find to Kelly Pops are Monster Pops, which I just found this year at Walmart. They are very similar to Kelly Pops in shape, albeit they are smaller in length, not quite the same flavor profiles, and are slightly rounded on the top; whereas, Kelly Pops were flat on the top. I have included as couple of pictures of Monster Pops in the post as I have yet to find a picture of a true Kelly Pops. Folks, there has to be more information about Kelly Pops out there somewhere, let’s find out what happened to them so we can get our Kelly Pops back!
