Cherry, Passion Fruit and Pineapple flavored pops are 1.5oz each.

Astro Pops History

Astro Pops were first made in 1963 after two ‘Rocket Scientists’ working on the space program in El Segundo, Ca decided to quit their jobs and create the Astro Pop®, modeling the pop after a three-stage rocket. Being actual ‘Rocket Scientists’ they built special equipment to make the cone-wrappers at high-speed along with other equipment made by hand.

Astro Pops® were very unusual to manufacture because the cone-wrapper became the mold for the candy. Hot candy was poured directly into the wrapper, then a paper stick was added and capped off with a layer of wax. Astro Pops were created at the perfect time in history when the ‘Space Race’ was in full force, kids were drinking Tang® and eating Astro Pops®, dreaming of going into space. Millions and millions of Astro Pops® were sold!

  1. flashback to the past 3 Star Review

    Posted by on Nov 10th 2015

    My wife loved these growing up as a child. Every time we visit candy stores she would look fir them. When I found them online I didn't think twice about buying them. However, I should have done some research. They were delivered in the time promised 5 stars for that. Cost of shipping very high 2 stars. 4 of the pops broken 2 stars for that. And they weren't as she remembered, top layer was soft and chewy not a typical pop 3 stars. Average 3 stars
