Yeah, I know these things have been out since the seventies, but I discovered them when I was a kid in the early 80's. The best freezer pop bar none in my book.

I LOVE these, but haven't seen them in years. Do they still make them?

cherry & blue raspberry were the best sometimes we wouldn't even freeze them - we'd just drink the juice

Yes they still make these!! Me and my girlfriend often eat these on hot summer days after work. Rite-Aid in CA (Sacramento) always has these!!!

They still make them, but they're smaller (or I just remember them being bigger?) and they don't have the pictures and names of the Otters anymore!

They have them on in the grocery store. I ordered them at $1.19 a box of 18. They have the pictures of the otter family on the box...

It wasn't until I read Kinerkat's comment that I remembered these. They came in clear plastic "tubes" that were attatched to each other (maybe about six in a row) and could be separated along perforated lines.

Jel-Sert now makes them. Hopefully, the link I submitted will go through.

Yes they are still made, but the plastic wrappers do not have their names or the individual pictures on them anymore. They do not taste quite the same, either. Had to order mine off a website. The west coast carries otter pops, and the east coast (me) carries Fla-vor-Ice. I cannot recall why, but each coast can only carry the one. Jel Sert told me this a year ago. When I was a kid though (born in 1980) stores around here carried both. I had them in my freezer all summer long.

After the 80s the otter pop company merged with flavor ice or some crap and they changed the recipe around as they always seem to do and made it "improved" but in real;ity ruined it, adding more real juice from apples to make it so called healthier like their rivals, which in turn removed the original flavor. Which was so memorable I recall it exactly from age eight.A little sour and not at all natural taste,but wonderful.They still make it, and it SUCKS it tastes exactly like al the rest of the boring pops available now days.There long and thin like the rest now, and the characters are only shown on the box and no longer right on the pop plastic itself.Walgreens sells these for a dollar a box now I tried them but it will never be the same I WANT THE ORIGINAL OTTER POP RECIPE if anyone can find it please please let me know here I check the site off and on.

I miss the original cherry and orange screwballs!!!
phil - May 01, 2012 - Report this comment
i also am VERY sad that the original recipe is not used anymore. its like if they want to make a healthier alternative, then fine... BUT why not have the original (supposedly less healthy) recipe available also. if their is diet coke and regular coke, then why not the same with otter pops?!?! its tragic that they wont put out the original tase that so many of us love and miss so much :(((

Theere has got to be a way to find and replicate the original taste for ourselves at home in ice cube or popcicle trays. I am sure we could find even the additives if any, or syrup if any nowdays. I think they had lime in them, just a little. They are made with apple juice now, maybe it was orange. I used to be very citrus sensitive as a child, but nowdays I have gotten less so and could eat many of them at once. I used to sit inside my igloo that my father made for me each winter, in the yard asa child, and eat them in there, even tho it was very cold, eating cold things. This is a favorite memory of mine.being out in my igloos, with otter pops. Thern going inside to the warm safe house I once lived in, and having cup a soup, while my father ate swiss cheese.HAHA

Oh by the way Jess from above stated that one coast can only carry one or the other type of either Otter Pop or Flav O Ice.In MN and surrounding areas, we carry both, even in the same stores. And my friend who lives in CA said she saw both at walgreens or someplace like Vans. So that isn't exactly a rule across the board. We also carry flav o Aide, the Kool Aid alternative with less flavor.

Came out in 1970. I would eat these all the time in the summer of 1984!

I was in the store just friday and we bought 100 for 2.88. I told my son how great they were and that they were the best popsicle ever. Not anymore their no different than flavor ice. I want the old recipe back too :( so dissapointed.

I miss the old recipe too!! The way it melted, it went from ice to slush to liquid. The ones today are just like ice cubes with no slushy goodness. Sigh... HFCSugar ruins everything

Does anyone remember Rip Van Lemon otter pop flavor? So delicious and not even featured in the otter pops of today. Sad

I remember the otterpops also having drinks that were sort of like little hugs. They were really good. Had the characters on them. Wish I could find those but I haven't seen them since the 80s.
