Jell-o Pudding Pops Recipe

The 1980s brought introduced some of my favorite things: She-ra and He-man, My Little Pony, and Jell-O Pudding Pops. According to Culinary Lore, sales hit $100 million the first year alone. But, it wasn't enough profit. The 1990s ended that deliciousness and Pudding Pops were discontinued. In 2004, Jell-O allowed the Popsicle brand to use their name, and Popsicle brand Pudding Pops hit the shelves. But, if you, like me, remember, they weren't the same. Reclaim your once-beloved cold treat with the homemade pudding pops recipe below. It isn't a perfect match, as it will lack that hardened, ultra thin sheen of ice on the exterior (home freezers just can't compare to industrial), but the flavor is there. You will need a popsicle mold.
