Judging from the number of examples that I get on my website, and the number of examples I see posted on other websites, "BrickWall WaterFall" currently appears to be the most widely known handclap rhyme in the United States.

That rhyme was featured in the 2003 movie "Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star".

I posted three examples of that rhyme, and my thoughts on the sources of that rhyme in this Mudcat thread:

And here's another example of that rhyme that I received from a girl from England:

This rhyme 'fits' in the category of 'kid's rhymes that mention food and beverages' because of the references to "Captain Crunch" {cereal} and 7-Up {soft drink}. Other versions of this rhyme mention "tic tac" {candy/mouth freshners} and reeces pieces {candy}.
