1983 Called...It's Retro Monday!

Do you remember these?  The fact that my daughter is turning 10 in less than a week is a little crazy to me.  I started thinking more about when I was 10, as I seem to have a lot of memories of that time.  I do remember one snack my friends and I always HAD to have.  I can almost hear Bill Cosby's voice now..."Jello Pudding Pops!"  We loved them and my Mom seemed to always have them on hand.  Nothing like a hot Summer day, my terrycloth romper, my bike with it's banana seat and a Chocolate Jello Pudding Pop!  What ever happenned to them? 
Next up, the movie of MY 4th grade year: Annie!  My friends and I belted out the tunes to It's a Hard Knock Life constantly (think Let it Go).  I begged my Mom to dye my hair red and get a perm.   I didn't get either request.  Yes, Mother does know best! 
I'll leave you with one of my favorite commercials and let you in on a little secret: the kid that stared in this commercial was one of my very first crushes of the '80s (I think it was the hair).  Take that Ricky Schroder!


  1. Lol! Fun trip down memory lane! Always loved Bill Cosby advertisements, and pudding pops! Have fun getting ready for the birthday party, I am sure it will be tons of fun :)

  2. Ha! I could not read this post without hearing Jorden in my head....he is obsessed with impersonating the Bill Cosby Jello commercials and is so bad at it!! I definitely remember the pops, delicious!
