"Popsicle Pete's Checker Set"

Postby Mr. Checkers on Mon Dec 19, 2005 2:51 pm

Most of us can remember those very hot summer days when we talked mom out of a nickal so we could go over to the grocery store to buy a cold, refreshing "Popsicle", which came in several delicious flavors. As a promotion from the company you could save so many popsicle wrappers and then send them in to "Popsicle Pete" and he would inturn send you a prize. In this case the prize was a nice checkerboard and checker set. And as an extra bonus "Popsicle Pete" would send you a popsicle stick, which you could redeem for another popsicle at the grocery store. This was one of the nice things about being a kid in the old days. (cont.)
