J-E-L-L-O

sometimes there's nothing more comforting than an ice cream pop. right? you can't eat one and feel like a full fledged adult.

i remember when i was little and would sleep at my grandma harriet's apartment, we would lie in bed with jello pudding pops and i would borrow her fancy red nighty and we'd watch dallas. i would always beg for a second pop and after fake thinking about it she would go back to the freezer and get a swirly one for me and a chocolate one for herself.

when i was in puerto rico last week pepo went and got judy and me ice cream pops and it was like the best gift we could have gotten. we sat on the park bench and tried not to drip onto our clothes and bit off the chocolate shell before slurping down the vanilla ice cream.

now, by the way, i have to tell you that i don't even really like ice cream that much. my mom on the other hand could eat it breakfast, lunch and dinner. wait. scratch that. she likes low fat frozen yoghurt and the lightest, least creamy ice you can find. what's the point, you ask, of eating ice cream? it's cold. it's sweet. it's familiar. and if you have dental problems it is a good numbing agent.

i've told people that i don't really like ice cream and i don't really like chocolate and they say oh, you're so lucky!

do i look lucky? i ask. sometimes people just say stupid shit. have you noticed that?

now, let me just comment on my boobs in the picture that julie put up in the last post. um... are you KIDDING me? that is some crazy angle action going on. just so you know, i'm not flat but i surely do not sport a mountain range on my chest. just had to mention that as i could not let it go without comment.

back to ice cream.

i'm sad to say that they took jello pudding pops off the market. i cannot imagine why. not only do i feel deprived of the best popsicle ever invented, i feel stripped of one of my favorite childhood memories.

so, mr. cosby, if you're reading this and still affiliated with the jello people, please ask them to bring back the pudding pop. summer 2006! they did it with coca-cola classic. they did it with red m&m's. make history. make us proud.

J-E-L-L-O, folks. okay? write letters to your congress people.

by the way, i have not had a whole grain in a month and i have not heard a peep from chazzy since celebrity fit club ended. but--

whole grains and chazzy,
rach

Holy shit!
This is sad to say but I didn't even realize they took them off the market.
I loved them too. I guess I always assumed that they would be there when ever I wanted to walk down memory lane, but NO. Who was the marketing genius that decided that?
Idiots!
We should write the J-E-L-L-O company. Maybe even circulate petitions to all your friends and send them in.
We have to do something people!
Come on!!!

Sean found Pudding Pops at the store in Maine and, knowing how much I loved them, bought 2 boxes. His roomie proceded to eat all of them in the course of a week. We have not seen them since. But this was last winter, I tell you. They are in production somewhere and I want them! The thin ice coating. The creaming filling. Swirl is the best.

P fucking S- I'm in Mexico. Why the hell are you in Puerto Rico? Who do we think we are?
