“We are thrilled to partner with Bomb Pop,” said Stanton Kawer, CEO of Blue Chip Marketing Worldwide. “This is an exciting opportunity to work on a brand that is a part of our collective American consciousness. We all have positive childhood memories of Bomb Pops, now we are being entrusted to bring back the excitement of this ice cream truck classic to a whole new generation of moms and kids.”
