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.
