Enough with 60s pop culture already. Its time to start remembering the 1970s and 80s. Pop Culture fans will love Whatever Happened To Pudding Pops?: The Lost Toys, Tastes & Trends of the 70s and 80s.
Reading about pop culture from our youth brings back more than just pop culture memories. We remember our life at the time and a whole wave of memories can be provoked by a few paragraphs on Dark Shadows. Do you remember taking typing class in high school and owning a transistor radio? Did you ever play Barrel of Monkeys or watch Battle of the Network Stars? Take a stroll down memory lane with Whatever Happened to Pudding Pops?
Whatever Happened To Pudding Pops? was written by two Pop Culture aficionados. Cael Fashingbauer Cooper has blogged at Pop Culture Junk Mail since 1999. Brian Bellmont, a public relations consultant, is a former TV news reporter and producer who has interviewed many pop culture favorites. The two of them write a blog together called GenXtinct.
Althought Whatever Happened to Pudding Pops? is aimed at Gen Xers, the generation that grew up in the 70s and 80s, as a Baby Boomer, I enjoyed it very much also. As a teenager and twentysomething during those years, I have fond memories of most of the pop culture items represented. And the great thing about books like these is that it is a great tool for sharing pop culture memories with your teens.
