Does anyone besides me remember when Creamsicles were called 50-50 Bars? On one of the rare times we bought popsicles from the ice cream truck, I remember my Mommy chose a 50-50 Bar.

I can still remember the surprisingly delicious combined contrast of flavors-the sweet taste of vanilla ice cream with the juicy tartness of orange sherbet. 

Those 50-50 bars were a swirl of the vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet. No one sells this authentic treat anymore. The closest is buying ice cream that is a swirl of vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet.

Today's Creamsicle popsicles are poor imitations, made cheaply, and just not at all the same at 50-50 Bars.

The Creamsicle popsicle is a slim pocket of vanilla ice cream surrounded by an orange popsicle (not orange sherbet). No creamy goodness, no luscious mouth-feel of contrasting flavors.

Another option is the Dairy Queen Creamsicle ice cream, which is their amazing soft-serve vanilla ice cream dipped in orange, similar to a chocolate dipped cone, but with orange flavor instead. The taste is similar to a 50-50 bar but the texture is not.

Good afternoon Michelle. I certainly remember this flavor but never cared for it. I am a chocolate gal.

Sheila,

I can understand! There is nothing like a rich, decadent chocolate.

I use to love Creamsicles, and bought them on the stick.  I haven't seen the flavor in an ice cream tub before.

Myrl,

We did too-back when Creamsicles were known as fifty-fifty bars.
