    Had a nostalgia hankering for these the other day but came up empty at a couple of different stores (Jewel, Sunset). Anyone seen them around lately? Web search returned results that I'd already discovered were inaccurate, so I'm looking for an actual sighting. Calling a store these days is hit or miss, I'd rather not spend any more of my time spinning those wheels.

    Thanks,

    Make sure to eat them in private if you do find them. I've read that in several states, it is not legal to eat root beer popsicles unless you are wearing blue Keds gym shoes with white sox with two colored ring stripes stretched up to your knees. Chuck Taylors are permitted as well.

    Thank you. Am really hoping for the Twinpops of my youth -- and according to their website -- it seems they still make them but finding them has proven difficult. Even stores where they supposedly carry them do not stock this flavor. Still, I'm going to give these a try, and I really appreciate the in-tel.

    Were they ever sold as a single flavor?

    I remember root beer being in the 'assorted' bag (I also remember trying to guess what flavor I had grabbed by the color showing through the mostly opaque white wrapper).

    Good question. I don't remember. I *think* so but I'm not sure. As of now, none of the assorted packs contain the root beer flavor.

    I kinda remember all-root beer packs of old fashioned twin popsicles as a common free coupon item at Superfresh on Lewis in Waukegan.
