    I had strep throat last fall and got some popsicles from Meijer's. There was a box that had root beer popsicles and I had to get those as they are my favorite. The problem is that there were two other flavors I don't care for in the box. The left overs are still in my freezer!

        Yes, I know, I wish they would make a box with only Root Beer!

          According to the archives of The Straight Dope from Nov. 14, 1975 ( http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a1_356a.html ):

          Dear Cecil:
          OK, Popsicles and Fudgesicles I understand. So what's the difference between a Creamsicle and a Dreamsicle? --C.S., Chicago


          The sherbet-like shell of the Creamsicle is identical to that of the Dreamsicle, but the payoff inside is ice cream in the former, ice milk in the latter. The difference in price, lasttime I checked, was about a nickel. --CECIL ADAMS

                Banana! Banana and Rootbeer were my favorites.

                Our Carnation man delivered them if I remember right.

                  Mar,

                  I, too, loved the Banana flavor but I believe that was a Fudgesicle, not Popsicle, flavor.

                    We had the kind that you made at home from Koolaid using a Tupperware popcicle mold. Fill it up, put it in the freezer, and you have popcicles. Of course waiting for them to freeze was a major downer for a kid.
                    We would also chase down the "Goody Goody" ice cream truck. The old guy that drove it wore a full long sleeved gray uniform complete with a service hat...all in the heat of a Texas summer! His changer device was almost as interesting as the contents of his truck...almost. Double sticked cherry popcicles, and fudgecicles were the order of the day, and one could tell where the kids had been by what had melted on their white T-shirts. And all of this for a dime!

                      No, Howard, you can still get banana Popsicles. There's a box with banana, lime and rootbeer-flavored Popsicles, unfortunately only available at one store in my area. I always have a box in the freezer during the summer and can't quite decide which one I like the best. I don't know if they even make a lemon flavor anymore, but that's one I'd sure like to try.

                        I also remember a white lemon flavor. Also I remember when popsicles went from single's to a double format with two sticks which could be shared.

                              According to the Popsicle website ( http://www.icecreamusa.com/popsicle/ ), Popsicles are currently available in various boxed combinations in the following flavors: banana, blue raspberry, bubblegum, cherry, cola, cotton candy, fruit punch, grape, green apple, kiwi, lemon-lime, lemonade, lime, mixed berry, orange, raspberry punch, root beer, sour cherry, strawberry, strawberry-kiwi and watermelon. Also, three additional flavors are available in multi-flavor Popsicles (pineapple, sour black cherry and a mystery flavor). Some of the multi-flavor Popsicles have as many as five different flavors in a single pop.

                                Thanks, I seen that before, I can only find about 2 of the kinds You mentioned and I checked every BIG Supermarket within 20 miles of my house.

                                I wonder maybe they don't make every one of those, every year?

                                Maybe they rotate them eevery 2 or 3 years?

                                Or make some of them aare just Regional.

                                  Does anyone remember the SkyBlue flavor? It was the color of antifreeze and was vaguely vanilla flavored. It was my favorite along with root beer.

                                    The blue popsicles were raspberry-flavored. We could only buy them from the ice cream truck, not from stores.

                                    Re: Creamsicles and Dreamsicles: If memory serves me, Creamsicles had orange sherbet on the outside and vanilla ice cream (or ice milk) inside. Dreamsicles, on the other hand, had orange popsicle on the outside with vanilla ice cream (or ice milk) inside.

                                      Banana Popsicles they were. My mother always split them between my brother and me. Both of us always wanted the entire thing.

                                          I have seen Popsicle put out a Rootbeer only box in limited runs. The bigger stores had them here in Ohio last summer, but not this summer.

                                          Hope you find them!

                                            I remember that my Elementary School had a box where ice cream was sold and if you made good grades and had good behavior in the 7th and 8th Grade , you got to work at the ice cream stand. I remember Banana Fudge Popsicles the best, they were like Fudgesicles, but were banana flavoured. I remember that they were so cold that they always stuck to your tongue if you weren't careful. Our Harris Teeter store sells boxes of the regular Banana Popsicles still and they are oh so good.

                                              Zataar, you are right. Originally (I'm talking about the late 50's, early 60's), there was a blue popsicle that tasted like vanilla, or cream soda. THEN the blue raspberry came along and has stayed that way ever since. I, for one, wished that they had stayed with the original blue. A blue cream popsicle, a hot July, at East Beach in New Bedford, Ma - heaven for a six year old girl!

                                                OMG! I forgot about the first Blue popsickle until You mentioned it! I think it was suppose to be a imitation berry flavor, but you're right, it tasted more like cream soda than berry! What You are talking about had to be at least 45 years ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

                                                  The best flavors were the ones that would turn your mouth orange, or blue, or purple, or whatever.

                                                    Does anyone remember popsicles that tasted like 7 UP? I loved those ones! I grew up in flint Michigan and I got them from men selling them from those push carts with bells on them. I saw a guy with one about a year ago in Chicago and I pulled over and asked for one but alas! no 7 Up popsicle. They had push ups though. I didn't like them as a kid though....Is there a compnay who makes 7 Up popsicles?

                                                      I, too, loved the Banana flavor but I believe that was a Fudgesicle, not Popsicle, flavor.

                                                        I think I remember a cola flavor, or am I making that up?

                                                          I liked banana. Dream (or Cream)sicles came also, I believe, in strawberry. And didn't someone make a similar treat that had some kind of crunchies in the outer coat?

                                                            Hello All,
                                                            My experiences with popsicles were first in the 60's. Loved the root beer, banana and cherry.
                                                            Rick F., I remember the strawberry thing you are talking about. They also had a chocolate.
                                                            But I can't recall what they were called.
                                                            Take Care,
