I like treats. I have great restraint, but the truth is that I really do enjoy dessert at least once a day.
Maybe that is why I am always so happy?

And while “calories” and “fat content” are the furthest thing from my mind when I am pursing my freezer and fridge, I can admit that it’s on my mind when I am doing the purchasing. I know that everyone in my family, not just me, will be opening the boxes and taking bites as well.

And did you know that Popsicle was invented by a KID? Check out the story!
The Popsicle® brand is an American classic, with more than 30 creative variations of the original Popsicle® product. And believe it or not, it all started with an accident!In 1905, 11-year-old Frank Epperson left a mixture of powdered soda, water, and a stirring stick in a cup on his porch. It was a cold night, and Epperson awoke the next morning to find a frozen pop. He called it the “Epsicle.”It was a hit with his friends at school, and later with his own kids. They constantly called for “Pop’s ‘sicle.” So in 1923, Epperson changed the name and applied for a patent. A couple of years later, Epperson sold the rights to the brand name Popsicle® to the Joe Lowe Company in New York. The rest is history!
- Cherry is the No. 1 Popsicle® ice pop flavor.
- During World War II, the Eighth Air Force Unit chose Popsicle® ice pops as a symbol of American life.
- The very first “ice cream man” sold Popsicle® ice pops from a horse-drawn cart to children in Nebraska.
- The Twin Popsicle® ice pop was invented during The Great Depression, so two children could share an ice pop for just a nickel.
- Popsicle® Lick-A-Color® ice pops are made from the outside in.
