Stick Something In Your Mouth

According to the Eclectic Calendar today is Popsicle Appreciation Day. Seemed worth celebrating to me! In order to educate myself I visited the official Popsicle site to get on the stick. hee hee! Hey, someone has to laugh... Anyway, I thought the origin of popsicles was actually quite cute. Read all about it HERE.

Did you like it? Do you want a popsicle now? There is really no bad time for one...unless you are going somewhere that colorfully stained hands and mouths are for some reason inappropriate...but why would you go somewhere like that? Well, just in case though, consider my personal favorite -
I think it actually come in different flavors, but I like the one that tastes the way it looks. No, not fish flavored! Lemon-lime. Sooooo refreshing. And you get sticky (if you are me) but not so colorful (not that theres anything wrong with that!)

What is your favorite flavor?

Yummmm...lime is my favorite for popsicles and for sno cones.

What a great thing to celebrate!

You are funny and make me laugh.

That is an awesome shark Popsicle! I'd be too amused to eat it, but I think eventually I'd manage.

Happy Popsicle Day!

I decided to celebrate the holiday on my blog. Unfortunately, I don't have any shark Popsicles. I want one, though.

OK, how can they make multi colored popsicles form the outside in. I can;t get my mind around that one. Trippy.

Ananda: Lime is an excellent choice. And thank you! I'm glad I amuse someone besides myself :-)

Tara: You would not be able to resist it's icy goodness :-) Happy Popsicle Day to you too!!!

AlienCG: I see that you took my suggestion and stuck something in your mouth...or maybe you were just following your instincts there :-) You definitely need a shark popsicle, although strawberry kiwi sounds delicious.

Crazy4Coens: I know, right? That freaked me right out too!

NoRegrets: haha! Yeah, sometimes actual flavors may be wishful thinking...but colors are definite. Excellent choice with orange :-)

I haven't had a popsicle in ages! Probably because I injured my eye the last time I tried to eat one. Long story... well, not really...

Sebastien - You did what?

I love bomb pops. The best kind ever. Thanks for the info. I had no idea of the history behind them.

Sebastien: Well...I guess when I stop to consider some of the other places that popsicle could have ended up a little eye injury might be acceptable....

Churlita: Mmmm, yeah, I almost picked bomb pops as my favorite. They are superb :-) Wasn't that a great little story?
