Popsicle Is Bringing Back Double-stick Popsicles, In Part Because Justin Bieber Asked For Them

Here’s something that would make a great addition to the official “Oddly Satisfying” story on Snapchat — a video of someone breaking apart an ice-cold Double Pop Popsicle. It’s such a great feeling!

Superstar Justin Bieber would be the best person to make that video. On May 21, Bieber tweeted to @Popsicle complaining that he and his manager Scooter Braun could not find double-stick Popsicles anywhere. He asked Popsicle to bring them back.

What a travesty! We wonder what pushed the Biebs to crave the double-stick.

No matter the reason, we’re super happy he made the request because Popsicle has responded with a possible yes.

“We can’t Beliebe you’re a fan,” they wrote. “We’ll see what we can do.

They then went on to tweet out some possibly exciting news for everyone, mentioning that they had a limited batch of Double Pops available, but that they’d consider “bring[ing] back the Double Pop fun for everyone” if followers would get them to 100,000 retweets:

As for the lucky recipients of that limited batch?

“Hey @justinbieber,” they tweeted. “[Y]ou asked where are the @Popsicle Double Pops? Well, you better belieb we made a special batch just for you and @scooterbraun! They’re coming in hot… well, cold actually, because you know… Popsicle!”

Braun even jumped into the Twitter conversation:

The Biebs tweeted at Popsicle again, making a special flavor request:

Yup. The Biebs is into banana.

Popsicle is going to announce on July 23 whether it will bring back the popular double-stick frozen treat. Click here for the tweet to retweet in order to get Double Pops to return.

While we’re waiting on the announcement, we checked out some other products the Popsicle brand has in stores. The Real Fruit Pops look yummy:

We can also thank the brand for bringing the Fudgsicle, the Creamsicle and, another Popsicle favorite — Pop Ups:


According to Popsicle’s website, the first popsicle was invented by a child. Eleven-year-old Frank Epperson left a cup of soda with a stir stick on a front porch in San Francisco. It got very cold overnight and, in the morning, it was frozen.

He called it an “Epcicle.” Later in life, his own children began calling it the “Popcicle,” and it caught on. Epperson introduced the treat to the world at a fireman’s ball, and he patented it in the 1920s.

Popsicle acquired the patent from Epperson in 1929.

Epperson died in 1983, but his invention will forever be a frozen favorite.

So, what’s the most popular Popsicle flavor?

Cherry, according to Popsicle.

Anyone else craving a cherry double-stick? We’re so ready for the popular frozen treat to return so we can beat the heat outside in the best way possible. Thanks, Biebs!
