When I was a kid there were a lot of weapon themed frozen treats. Rocket pop, bomb pop, grenade pop. I haven’t been to an ice cream truck in the last 20 years or so. Do they still make stuff like that or are they all licensed characters now?
I love rocket pops. Our truck still has them.
The last time I was at a truck (this past summer) they had all the original novelty items, and a few that I hadn’t seen before! I got a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ice cream bar with bubblegum eyes!
where can i buy that brand of rocket pops? i want one. or several.
God I havent had a rocket pop in forever… Must buy some.
I know Biff can survive a lot, but he just lost his head.
This is even scarier than the time he drove his invisible green car into the library.

I haven’t been to an ice cream truck in a few years, but last time I did, it was all licensed characters and then a rocket pop. That was it for weapon-themed ice cream.
And there was a Choco-Taco. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choco_Taco
Weapons are still on the menu, but licensed characters are taking the lead.
I’m assuming he’s going to spend a day or 2 looking for his head?
The Ice Cream ‘Truck’ that comes around where I live is a modified station wagon that sell single cup servings for more than the price of a quart at the super market (NOT on sale). Needless to say, we don’t buy from it. I understand a mark-up for delivery but geez…
@Varkarrus: No, he’s going to spend a couple of days looking for his body.
Were bomb pops the red, white and blue ones? I think the ice cream trucks still sell them.
I think Biff is good, he just has to put on a new head from the shelf.
@Cari: They were where I’m from. I never heard of rocket or grenade pops.
So… Did the mind of Biff see the shadow his body cast by the light from its head? And if so, was it scared?
Does a dark star cast a shadow? Anyway, it seemed like the eleventh hour was a good time to throw out my second favorite line from that movie:
I remember Bomb Pops that were, oddly enough, shaped like rockets. They came with three stratiated (striated?) flavours in each lolly.
