1990 Good Humor Ice Cream Bat Stick

Year: 1990
Manufacturer: Good Humor
What is it?: A Popsicle stick shaped like a bat.

There are oddballs and then there are oddballs.  This might be one of the weirdest items I've ever spent money on to add to my Yount collection.  It's a Good Humor Ice Cream Bat.  Obviously meant to be used as a stick for a sweet frozen treat I've had a hard time finding much information on the product.  The stick doesn't appear to be used, there's no staining anywhere that would indicate that this was once used as a popsicle stick.  

I was able to find a little info on the set, there was a factory produced album for the sticks, but I can't find a product images of a product that these might have been used in.  It's possible they were giveaways.  Most likely the album was mail order and it's possible that the sticks were mail order as well from an magazine ad or giveaways from an ice cream truck.  It's probably lost to time unless someone remembers anything about the set.

Still a neat oddball.
