Most of us are content with ordinary grape or strawberry Popsicles. A few of us have a taste for mango-lime paletas. But for a select few, only the wackiest frozen treats will do. Here are five crazy popsicles that will certainly entertain your taste buds this summer.
Bob's Pickle Pops are made from squeezed pickles for the sourest frozen treat ever. Hey, it's one way to get your kids to eat their vegetables, right?
Giving new meaning to sex-on-a-stick, Del Monte Superfruit Smoothies asked 1,000 of its female customers who they'd most like to see on a popsicle. Danel Craig was the winner. Alas, these were available only for a limited time last summer, and only in the UK.
What makes these avocado popsicles go down more smoothly? A bit of tequila.
Top Chef contender Richard Blais's frozen "popcornsicles" were the talk of the Taste of Chicago festival. Sound soggy? Blais uses liquid nitrogen to freeze a popcorn ball -- see how he makes it on the Today show.
And the wackiest popsicle of all is the one you make yourself using Zocu, a popsicle maker that flash freezes treats so you can suspend fruit or make arty layers of color. I'm imagining what a grasshopper popsicle might look like. (I mean chocolate mint, not the insect, of course!)
