Whatever Happened to Pudding Pops?: The Lost Toys, Tastes, and Trends of the 70s and 80s

TarcherPerigee #ad - Some were yanked from the market, revised, and reintroduced. But you'll have to read the book to find out which ones. Whatever happened to pudding pops? takes you back in time to the tastes, smells, and sounds of childhood in the '70s and '80s, when the Mystery Date board game didn't seem sexist, and exploding Pop Rocks was the epitome of candy science.

Some stayed around, but faded from the spotlight, like Sea-Monkeys and Shrinky Dinks. If you owe a couple cavities to marathon candy bars, learned your adverbs from Schoolhouse Rock!, and can still imitate the slo-mo bionic running sound of The Six Million Dollar Man, this book is for you. So flip up the collar of that polo shirt and revisit with us the glory and the shame of those goofy decades only a native could love.
