The original inventors were D.S. "Doc" Abernathy and James S. Merritt of Merritt Foods in Kansas City, Missouri. The flavors on this cold firecracker are cherry, lime, and blue raspberry. After Merritt Foods stopped operating in 1991, the manufacturing of the famous Bomb Pop was sold to Wells Dairy in Iowa. It's still made in Iowa out of La Mars. Wells Dairy is known for making a lot of ice cream, notably the Blue Bunny brand.
