These ice cream bars were made of orange sherbert and coated with chocolate and were called, as I remember "Brownie Bars" my husband swears they were called "Teddy Bear Bars". Do you or any of your people remember these. I was born in 1960 and do certainly remember eating them when I was around 10. Help me out please. Thanks

These were absolutly the best Ice cream Bars I ever ate, you don't happen to know where to get them anymore? Or who we can interest in making them again

Brownie Bars (made with orange sherbert and chocolate coated on a stick) were sold in our school cafeteria for 5 cents each during the mid 1960s. I ate one after lunch every single day! I loved them and would love to know where I could find them today.

I was beginning to think I had imagined these wonderful treats! None of my childhood friends could recall them and I couldn't find any results on Google for "Brownie Bars" other thsn actusl brownie recipes. I feared that ,perhaps, I had devoured the entire supply of these delicious confections in the 1960's and no one would ever know about them. Thanks for the comments.

I can't tell you how many times I have longed for these! Brownie Bars were SO good. I am assuming the company that made them went out of business. I think it was a company out of Mass., maybe Boston. Or was it Hood? SOME ice cream manufacturer should get started on them again though. They'd make a killing.

Brownie Bars were the best. They had a picture of a bear on the wrapper. I would buy those instead of lunch some days.

I remember Brownie Bars. In NH when I was growing up we also had H-Bars which had the orange sherbet inside and chocolate outside. They were my favorite ice cream bar. Here's a little secret on how to enjoy that flavor today but I warn you, it's addictive! Buy your favorite orange sherbet and some milk chololate Magic Shell. Scoop the sherbet into a bowl and cover with the Magic shell. I also brought a cake to work today that I call a "Brownie Bar" cake that is dark chocolate with an orange cream icing. It was an experiement and came pretty close to capturing that flavor we remember from our childhood.

I grew up in Montreal in the 50's and 60's and we had a local Sealtest dairy that sold chocolate-covered orange sherbet on a stick, but I remember them being called "Soldier Boys"; does that name ring a bell with anyone else? They were pretty tasty!

In NH,I also remember Brownie Bars but I sure can't remember the company (Hood or Sealtest?) in the early & mid 60's, along with fudgicles, push-ups, creamsicles. Kids used to eat them every day after school. I also remember chocolate covered Twinkies, with a white squiggle on top, that nobody else seems to remember

I loved that great combination of orange sherbet and really thin dark chocolate. I have written to several ice cream places suggesting they "re-invent" this incredibly delicious treat. No response which does puzzle me. It seems to be a no brainer to bring back such a favored treat. Was it just a NH thing? I spent all of my allowance buying Brownie Bars in Laconia NH. The package was brown and orange and I think it did have a Teddy Bear on it. I have made really fudgie brownies from scratch and topped them with orange sherbet ice cream. It was just a little too sweet though.

The ice cream truck just drove by playing its catchy music and all of a sudden I had an urge for a "Teddie Bear" Bar, orange sherbet covered with chocolate icing. A treat I loved growing up in Manchester NH in the 60's. So I went online to see if they are still made and I found this page. How cool. Unfortunately it seems they can no longer be found.

I grew up in Needham, Massachusetts in the 1960's. I used to eat a Brownie Bar almost every day during lunch at grammar school. Seems the only place you could buy them was in the cafeteria. The ice cream man never had them. They definitely had a bear on the wrapper...I think it was standing on its hind legs, holding & eating a Brownie Bar.

Bruce, I grew up in Montreal as well, and I remember these being called Space Bars. They are not the space bar that is sold today, these were chocolate covered orange sherbet and the wrapper was orange and white. I found something similar in the Tigre Geant store in Chateauguay, last summer!

This is too funny! Eating chocolate-covered orange jellies (as our office overflows with goodies) got me thinking about Brownie Bars. I have mentioned them to numerous folks over the years and, like so many commenters here, met with blank stares or accusations of faulty memory (nostalgia can be like that!). I grew up in south-central Maine and used to ride my bike to the local store, picking up "returnables" from the sides of my rural road to redeem for cash to be spent on Brownie Bars. Gotta try the sherbet/Magic Shell thing. Merry Christmas!

I grew up SW of Boston. Brownie bars and Popsicles were 5 cents. Creamsicles were 10 cents. The Popsicles actually came on 2 sticks and could be broken down the middle. The store carried Sealtest so maybe they were the supplier.

Brownie Bars they were, in NH in the 60s & 70s. An amazing delight, far better than an ice cream covered bar. The astringency of the sherbet against the crunch of the chocolate was addictive. A fortune awaits the company that brings them back.
Mike Riggs - May 29, 2011 - Report this comment
I also used to buy these in NH in the early 60's (at school and the neighborhood corner grocery, another very good thing of the past). I'm pretty sure Sealtest made them. They cost a nickel and they were the best!There was an ice cream parlor in Chapel Hill (where I live now) that had really great mint-dark chocolate chip orange sherbert, but sadly the place when out of business in the late 90's. It was a great combination - orange and dark chocolate. It's hard to understand why some variation of it isn't available anymore. Probably for the same reason you can't walk down to the corner to buy your groceries anymore.

Brownie Bars were a favorite treat while I was growing up in Massachusetts. They were sold in every local grocery store. They cost a nickle in the 60's and then went up to 7 cents. My husband was from the midwest and had never heard of them. I can't remember who made them but they sure were good.

These were the greatest and have never been topped. I seem to recall them around in the mid 1950's. When we went to our camp in New Hampshire we always went to the country store on those hot summer afternoons and bought ourselves some Brownie bars. One was never enough and at 5 cents they really outshined the 10 cent Chocolate Covered's. I can still invision those orange wrappers with the little bear on them. Why they aren't around anymore is a mystery to me. It was great buying a carton of them for home, but they sure didn't last long.

Yes, these were great treats - especially biking to our small, local, general store (Riverside Store) in Lebanon, NH after swimming at the municipal pool! They were in a mostly brown wrapper with white copy and a cute little bear in the middle of the front. All of the comments bring back those good memories with childhood friends. Never found these outside of New Hampshire and think of those delights on hot summer days. (If I remember correctly, there was a raspberry sherbet covered variety - maybe a later version - around 1968 or so.)

They were called "Teddy Bars". They had an orange lable with a pic of a teddy bear on the front. The bear and the words were in chocolate brown color on the orange wrapper. They were not jet bars. Jet bars were in the shape of a rocket in three flavors red white and blue. There were also push ups that had a round cardboard cylinder with a plastic stick sticking out the bottom so you could push the ice cream out the top. But teddy bars were called just that. People would mix up the name cuz there was a bear on the wrapper but the name was teddy bar.

Since Sherbet Ice Cream has been around for many generations, and Ice cream Companies know how to make it. Why not contact some of them and have them make the Sherbet into bars or blocks and coat them with chocolate. Since I have milk alergies and can't eat ice cream, but I can Sherbet. I would be first in line to buy them if they were avaliable in northern Ohio.

Looks like Lebel the company in Quebec that was the supplier for Giant Tiger has been taken over by Scotsburn in March 2014 so who knows what is happening with Iceberg.

Anyone remember an a vanilla and orange swirl ice cream that was on a plastic stick and you'd discover a figure of something upon finishing the ice cream? Driving us nuts thinking of what they were called. Someone thought it might be a Jolly Roger?

In Australia, I think they were called Chorango Kid. I remember them too, from the early 70s. Could never forget.

Randy....I was talking to a friend a couple of days ago about orange sherbet bars half coated in milk chocolate I found at Walmart. Not the same as the Jet Bars we had in the 70s She mentioned the orange and vanilla swirl ice cream on a plastic stick with a figure. I am from Oshawa in southern Ontario. Here the Good Humor truck sold them under the name Buried Treasure. I miss both.

Buried Treasure was a creamsicle / sherbet combination, round ice cream on a plastic stick. Once you ate the ice cream, it revealed a character on the plastic stick. Jet bars were orange sherbet with chocolate outside. Similar to a popsicle. Very popular in Toronto when growing up. Believe Borden's made them.........

never tried these, but I remember something called a Cherry Bomb from the ice cream truck. it was chocolate covered vanilla ice cream with a cherry sorbet center on a stick. I think this treat fell victim to the red food coloring ban in the late seventies

Grew up in Salem, Mass...loved Brownie Bars with the bear on the wrapper...remember them in the 50's and 60's. I moved to Florida and when I came back 6 years later they were gone. Forgot all about them...they were my favorite...In New England I think they were distributed by H P Hood

Chapman's ice cream has a product called Tiger's Paw. It comes pretty close to Jets!

Grew up in North Conway, NH in the 60s -loved the Brownie Bar! Thanks for the memories everyone! Orange and brown wrapper with logs. Loved these and will try to find one (from the info above) when I return to NH and MA after 40 years of moving away.

In the mid fifties in Ottawa Ontario we ate a Soldier Boy bar every chance we could. An orange sherbet bar covered in chocolate for 5 cents. Don't remember who made them. Today, Chapman's has a similar bar called a Tiger Paw, sold at Sobeys in Kanata.

I grew up in Salem, MA in the 50's and 60's and I loved these. Moved to FL and Edy's ice cream use to have and orange sherbet with dark chocolate chunks. I was so happy to find that then they discontinued that. Now I buy orange sherbet and the chips and make my own.

I remember then as Brownie Bars in an orange and white wrapper. Used to buy them at our local corner store Artie Lou's in Manchester, NH

My husband and I both grew up in Manchester, NH and to this day we still talk about these Brownie Bar ice cream bars. I remember in Kindergarten at Webster School they had the freezer in the basement and we'd pay our $.25 and be able to get them out of this freezer. I loved reading the stories above because orange sherbet and chocolate was the perfect match and the only place that I know that used to make these comparable is Blakes on the west side. My Dad owned Temple Food Market on the south end of Elm st but I only recall being able to get this frozen yummy at school. I did reach out to Dove chocolate years ago and requested they make this. Klondike should too. Thanks for the page and all the great comments

Brownie Bars!!! Remember them well. I grew up n Barrington NH and we used to hut "tonic" bottles on the side of the road and turn them in for deposit at Calef's store and use the money to buy Brownie Bars.

I had brownie bars in Cambridge MA I the 1950s I got them from the Pony Boy. Haven't been able to find them any where now. Maybe we should tell Ben and jerry's to come up with this combo.

FINALLY!!! After all these years of remembering this ice cream treat ( sherbert) I found someone who knows of them named like I did,' H- BARS! They had a brown wrapper with orange letters as I recall. Ate them in Grafton Cty...( Lebanon,Hanover,Etna,and near the Why. Mtns.I thought it was Sealtest or Hood,but no clue now...I enjoyed these in the 60's,and something similar in the70's or early 80's,which were not quite the same,but tasted great anyway! Oakhurst Dairy Farms had a ice cream counter that featured a Mandarin Chocolate ice cream/sherbert that was pretty close to the flavor of the H-Bar... I would just get a really super orange flavored high quality sherbert ,melt some good dark chocolate,and spoon it over and refreeze...Yum!! I also thought I was imagining the name..I don't recall it being called a Brownie Bar however.. Thanks to this site for posting, I would have been thinking I was the only one out there. And YES!? Why doesn't an ice cream maker make these excellent frozen treats???? If I had the money,I sure would!!! :-) Happiness is a H- Bar filled freezer!!!

Wow. I can't believe so many other people loved these as well. I recall these as being called "Jets". That delicious orange sherbet and chocolate coating. I grew up in Toronto and started eating these in the late 60's and early 70's. I live in Alberta now and have searched everywhere but still can't find this wonderful treat.

Yep, Brownie Bars were a nickel. Orange sherbet covered in chocolate on a popsicle stick. Wrapper was orange with a bear on it.
