Double-Stick Popsicles Are Coming Back Thanks To Justin Bieber

July 19, 2019 / Posted by:

We’ve all got our causes and in these confusing and dividing times Justin Bieber has discovered his (other than defending Chris Brown), as he’s put out a call to all his fans to help bring back the Double-Stick Popsicles.

So this is surprising for a variety of reasons: 1) I didn’t even know they were gone, and 2) they were discontinued in 1986?! Huh? I feel like I grew up eating these so I have no idea what kind generic double popsicle life I was living? My dad probably glued two Popsicles together just to shut me up.

According to Billboard:

Looking to keep doubly cool this summer? Justin Bieber’s got your back.

Back on May 21, both Bieber and manager Scooter Braun took to social media when they realized that Popsicle’s Double Pops were nowhere to be found

On Twitter, Bieber tagged Popsicle, saying “We need those back!” Braun made his own post on Instagram, calling it an “outrage!!!”

Talking with @scooterbraun and we just realized we can’t find double stick popsicles!! This is crazy. @Popsicle we need those back!

Well, it looks like when The Biebs wants to do something worthwhile (unlike trying to cage fighting Tom Cruise and or learning how to eat a burrito), he actually gets it done! Popsicle announced a limited batch is coming out, and if they get enough retweets, they will bring them back permanently.

On Tuesday, Popsicle announced that a limited batch of the Double Pops has been made. And, for 100k retweets, Popsicle promises to make the comeback permanent.

Lord knows they will get enough retweets because this involves two things Americans loves: nostalgic food and extra sugar. Popsicle claims it stop making them because they were so messy. Which is true, on hot summer days eating both Popsicles before they covered your body in sugar juice was a feat. Thirty years later, we learned to embrace the messiness, in fact they should make a Triple-Popsicle and we’ll all just live our best lives in a sticky, messy paradise of endless popsicle.

The Double Pops were reportedly discontinued in 1986 because they were too “messy,” according to a 1987 The New York Times article. But they must have come back at some point in Bieber’s lifetime (he was born in 1994) or he wouldn’t remember them so fondly.

I am impressed The Biebs’ and Taylor Swift’s sworn enemy Scooter Braun have used their powers for good. Hopefully this trend keeps going and they can work on bringing back PB Max Bars, and then maybe some good music.
