I grew up watching The Cosby Show and seeing Bill Cosby with his Jell-O Pudding Pops on television every Saturday Morning.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find Jell-O Pudding Pops at the grocery store in a long time.

I’ve heard they no longer make them, but rest assured you can still make them at home with this Homemade Jell-O Pudding Pops recipe.

These Patriotic Pudding Pops are the perfect summer treat!
