Does anyone remember those wonderful Charms "ice cream/candy" flavor pops from the mid 70's? I always remember eating the "Buttermint", the only other flavor I can recall is Strawberry Coconut. They had this cute little commercial and jingle of which I can only remember a part: "Buttermint in the ra-in...Stawberry co-co nut in my lunch box..." They were fantastic.

WOW Candygram. I thought I was the only 'nut' who remembered, not only the commercial, but all the lyrics! I was looking for the ad and have not found any record of it. Very memorable commercial!

I have been looking all day and cannot find the commercial for the jingle Candygram remembered!!! We used to drive our parents crazy on road trips singing that song using different voices!!!

does anyone remember there was a commercial for the flat lollypops and it was like a game show contest where 3 guys "raced" each other to see who could finish fastest and they each had a different way of licking the lollypop.I cant find this commercial anywhere.

John, I remember the commercial you are talking about, vividly, but I can't find it either.

To John and Boatzilla: I think you're referring to the Charms commercial from 1970. It began with a man and a boy about to draw suckers, to simulate a duel. The man cheated by biting his sucker when it was hopeless he'd beat the boy by playing the rules and licking the sucker. You know who won. This ad is from a Saturday morning "Heckle & Jeckle" cartoon show (10/10/70, NBC).

Melvin, you cheated. I've been looking all over for this commercial on YouTube. Glad to see I'm not crazy and the only one who remembers!

I remember that commercial.The boy contestants name was Melvin.

The man's name was Melvin of Sydney. I remember that commercial, where the announcer says that Melvin's chewing of his pop (which was lemon flavored) violated international law. I wish I could find a copy of that commercial.

My older brother and I use to walk to the corner store for some Charms pops. (the flat kind, not the Blow Pops). I always got Cherry, and he always got grape. Good times.

Are the lollipops able to be made and ordered. I can not find a good lollipop.
Rob Lambert - April 26, 2014 - Report this comment
To Susan: Charms lollipops and Blowpops are still made and sold by the Tootsie Roll Company. Try their site at, or try Googling. Try this if you can't find them in stores.

Loved the ice cream pops commercial. I remembered all the lines but the chocolate swirl in my shirt and the ciconut in the skirt. Great jingle as we remember it still

My brother and I were IN the TV commercial for Charms ice cream flavored lollipops! It was the summer of 1976. He was the 'chocolate swirl pop in my shirt' and I was 'tutti-frutti coconut in my skirt'. We tried out for almost all of the other flavors too. My brother ate so many that he got sick afterwards. I recently found the cassette tape with the jingle on it in my father's garage, but don't know if it will play anymore. I have never been able to find the video.

Wow, tons of responses. I had no idea. Liza that is so cool ! I have looked for the commercial as well, but could never find it. Kevin, I take your word for it on the jingle, my memory is often wrong :)

@ Liza...that is SO cool! I have had the "pineapple coconut in my lunchbox, cherry vanilla in my socks" stuck in my head for all these years. I wish the video was on YouTube.

Going back to the Saturday morning roots, NBC seemed to be the network of choice by Tootsie Roll, which made and advertised Charms products on TV. In 1970, Charms commercials aired on most of NBC's lineup, especially the new fall shows like "Tomfoolery, Bugaloos, Dr. Dolittle and Hot Dog." On the other networks, CBS was nearly monopolized by Kellogg's in ad time bought. On ABC, Mattel and Post cereals dominated much of the commercial time. You'd see an occasional Charms ad on CBS or ABC, the duel/race one with the boy and man. A separate one for Blow Pops followed, with five kids blowing bubbles in unison. While NBC had other favored sponsors (Wham-O, Marx Toys, Quaker Oats), there would always be room for Charms.

I wonder why this is not on You Tube? I have searched for this commercial several times. I loved it.

I think they also made the sweet and sour Charm pops. They were so good as you got a big sour taste and then the sweet taste calmed it all down.

Why can't that commercial video be found? I loved it!

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, the Charms spot with the man and boy "dueling" with their Charms lollipops. This aired on "Heckle & Jeckle" over NBC (5/16/70). Episode also has great commercials for Flintstone Vitamins, King Viataman (animated), Quake Cereal, an early network-aired Burger King spot, Milk Duds (baseball-themed). Also, Reese PB Cups, Marx Big Wheel and others. Two of the feature cartoons were edited to make time for all the ads (if not to cut out violent content).

I've been looking all over for the Charms swirl pops. This is the only reference I've found, its almost like they never existed! I wish Charms would make them again.
Rob Lambert - October 17, 2018 - Report this comment
Charms Swirl Pops were more late 70s, early 80s. More a temporary novelty item, with demand not great. Best bet is contact Tootsie Roll, which has made Charms products nearly 50 years. More recently, a Life Savers swirl pop has been around.
