The coolest mom in the neighborhood is the one that passes out Popsicles to all the kids outside on a hot, summer day. I can tell you this from experience. 😉
We just got a box of the new Popsicle Jolly Rancher ice pops to sample, and they are so yummy! My daughters and their friends approved. And asked for seconds.
I can see why. The new, colorful Popsicle Jolly Rancher ice pops are bright and fruity. Each pop is made up of four flavors: Blue Raspberry, Cherry, Grape and Sour Apple. Lick only one part of the Popsicle and you can taste the individual flavor (Sour Apple is my favorite!), or take a big bite and they all combine beautifully. At 45 calories, I didn’t even feel guilty for having one myself! Each ice pop is made with 10% fruit juice, is fat free, and provides 10% of the daily value for vitamin C per serving. The 20-pack is big enough to last a while… or a perfect (and affordable) treat for a neighborhood full of sweaty kids!
Each Popsicle stick has a cute, kid-friendly riddle on it. For example, why didn’t the mouse want to be a tattle-tale? Because he didn’t want to be a rat! HAHAHA!! Maya loved it, and told the joke to us repeatedly. So many times, that it ended up morphing into ‘Why did the mouse cross the playground? To get to the other slide and see the rat.” Kids and their short term memory… LOL!
I like how the girls each eat their Popsicles in a very different way.
Maya takes bite after bite, gobbling it all up in mere seconds. She says it’s because she wants to read the joke on the stick, but I think she also thinks that maybe she’ll get lucky, and I’ll give her another one while we wait for her sister to finish hers.
Maura, on the other hand, takes her sweet time, licking the Popsicle slowly, savoring each juicy level of flavor. It drips down her chin, all over her clothes and her hands, but she doesn’t seem to mind, so I don’t either. She gets a kick out of how her lips and tongue turn a dark shade of blueish-purple!
To enter the contest, you’ll have to save your Popsicle sticks! Then go to Popsicle.com/possibilities and submit the riddle answer printed on your stick. The promotion ends on September 30th, 2010, but you can enter every day! The daily prize is the National Geographic Kids “Big Book of Fun”.
