This might have been out before the 70's, but being a kid in the 70's I can remember these. They were the same as the Dilly Bars they have now, but were a light green color. I believe they were lime. I can still remember how they taste! Does anyone else remember these?

I remember this dilly bar but the one I loved was the raspberry. I also loved the slushies there but I don't remember the name of them.

I remember the green Dilly Bars as being Mint flavored. This was back when they came in an assortment of Cherry, Butterscotch, and Chocolate coated that you could buy in quantity to take home, which is what we often did.

I worked at the DQ in the 60's. I do remember the green ones, I loved them. They were not mint however, maybe they were lime, but sweet lime.

When we would visit my Aunt on Riverside MO outside of KC we would walk to the DQ. She lived right by one and always get a box of Dilly Bars. Chocolate was a big hit but I lived for butterscotch. I also liked the Mister Misty slushes. Lime was my favorite with a line of soft serve down the side. Now they're called Artic Freeze.

there was a star kiss product in cherry grape lime orange and blue raspberry on a stick shaped like a star. the dilly bars were chocolate, butterscotch and cherry. we still offer those dilly bars along with heath. mint and no sugar added. some stores still offer hand made just like in the early days.

Remember the "free Dilly sticks"? It always felt great to eat your Dilly bar and then find that the stick entitled you to a free one!

The lime Dilly Bar was introduced in 1968, a hint of psychedelic on DQ's part. Outer candied shell, green, covered plain vanilla ice cream. Dairy Queen advertised little on TV, but quite more in newspapers and magazines. Hank Ketcham's Dennis the Menace characters began appearing in ads around 1969, until the early 1980s. Scrumpdillishus! was the slogan.

Forgot to mention that, in 1968, Dillies were 20 to 25 cents. Today, they're $1.50, while cones are over two dollars. Inflation!

Don't quite remember the Lime Dilly remember the Cherry, Butterscotch and Chocolate ones. I also remember the Dennis the Menace theme they used in the early 1970's..they gave away little plastic rings of the characters. I hadn't had a Dilly bar for years so this past summer I treated myself to a Cherry one but it sucked. Tasted somewhat salty and waxy. Does anyone out there remember the DQ on Hwy 101 in Depoe Bay Oregon with the red neon PRONTO PUPS sign in the window? BTW...glad to see Rob Lambert back...always good info!

Thanks for the support, La Sponge. I've had no internet since February. My computer crashed, and service cancelled. I'm now using a friend's laptop and McDonald's WiFi. Your friendly neighborhood food and toy critic of the past is back, be it on a limited basis. One more footnote: The lime-coated Dilly was only promotional, and some cities didn't care to have them back in 1969 or '70.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, a mostly animated TV spot featuring wimped-down characters like King Kong, Superman (biting the speeding bullet) and Tarzan. Live-action family shown eating different DQ products. This aired on "Top Cat" over NBC (9/17/66).
