Is there a saying about July and the weather? There should be. So far, my main goal for July has been not to suffer from heat stroke and to make sure that my whole family is keeping cool. As a result, we’ve been enjoying a lot of frozen treats. I may or may not have left the house yesterday with a purple tongue.
The easiest frozen treat I can think of is Freeze Pops – you know, the tubes of colorful sugar water, frozen to perfection. You might know them as Fla-Vor-Ice or Pop Ice. Either way, they say summer to me. I love them because they can be bought by the 100, and stored out of the freezer until you’re ready to freeze them. I can throw them frozen in a cooler to take to the pool, and if they melt before we eat them, I just refreeze them when I get home.
I’m pretty sure that my kids will always associate summer with Freeze Pops. What’s your favorite frozen treat? How are you beating the heat this month?
