Barley Pops - Lobster 1 oz pop
Lobsters are one of the most iconic barley pop flavors! The pops are hand poured and are individually wrapped. These cherry-flavored pops are all approximately 6 inches tall with the paper stick.
I had Barley Pops as a child in the 60s and 70s, and Lobster Pops from Old Time Candy in the last decade. The Lobster Pops from Old Time Candy never really tasted like the old barley pops, but they were enjoyable. After being out of stock for several years, I find the taste has changed again. In addition to an almost too-strong cherry taste, there is a rather unpleasant and very persistent marshmallow after-taste. Others may enjoy these two tastes together, but I do not, so sadly, it's time to make barley pops just a memory.
When my 2 sisters and I were young, back in the late 50’s, our Dad would take us to the neighborhood playground. When we were playing in the sandbox, Dad would toss coins into the sand when we weren’t looking. We really thought we were finding lost treasure!
This was back when this candy was called $100,000 bars, not 100 Grand bars. I remember going to my friend Cori's birthday party in elementary school, maybe third grade. At the party her mom told us that we were each going to get $100,000...
When I was a kid we always got Good and Plenty when we went to the movies. My sister would only eat the pink ones, even though I kept telling her they tasted the same as the white ones. Just seeing them today reminds me of my little sister and the sweet taste of black licorice.
