Skeleton Pops Bag

Have you ever wanted to build your own skeleton out of lollipop sticks? Pop Rocks is now giving budding Frankensteins the opportunity to piece plastic bones together into complete skeletal bodies. Strange timing for this new candy to come out (wouldn’t the announcement be better off closer to Halloween?), but the Build Your Own Skeleton Pops should be available by April of 2007.

What I first believed to be edible skeletal (that’s fun to say out loud!) remains turned out to be something different. The lollipop itself is strawberry swirl. The collectible, buildable aspect comes in with the stick. Each stick is actually a bone, and multiple pops must be eaten before you collect enough parts to create an entire skeleton. Here’s an excerpt from the press release:

These unique treats are available in seven different individually wrapped collectible bone styles, skull, rib cage, arms (2), legs (2), and hip, that that snap together into a free-standing 20 inch skeleton play figure. Featuring fact-filled packaging that encourages kids to learn all about the human skeletal system, Build Your Own Skeleton Pops are collectible, fun, delicious and educational.

It’s great that a company has finally figured out a creative use for the stick of a lollipop. I collect them, but I never know what to do with the sticks afterwards and they almost always end up in the recycle bin. Now at least I’d have a creepy-cool skeleton after all that licking. Skeleton Pops will be available in stores starting this April, at $0.99 per bag, or in a larger bag of seven pops for $5.99.

    I came across these in a Las Vegas 7-11 store but was short the left leg. Went back but they no longer carry it. Am also unable to find them any where on the websites except mentioned here on this site. Can I buy them directly? It’s disturbing to have a incomplete skeleton on my desk.

    I also came across these in a store at Pinecrest, CA but still missing the pelvis left leg and right arm. Can I buy them directly? I’d like a complete set as well.
