Craziest Popsicles of All Time


elvissa flickrMost 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

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?

richard blais top chefTop 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.













popsiclesAnd 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!)

Avocado isn't as weird as you'd think, though most people mix it with chocolate.


I'm still fascinated with the giant Ralph Wiggum standee in the first picture.

I tasted the pickle pops at a vendor fair.  I like pickle juice a lot better when I was a kid.
