4th Of July Pops

When I reminisce of the Fourth of Julys of long ago when I was younger, running around in a smocked dress and monogrammed underwear, I always remember holding a sparkler way too close to my face for comfort with a popsicle hanging out of the side of my mouth. I’m glad to say I didn’t burn an eyebrow off with a sparkler – although a missing eyebrow came later in college one sleep deprived when I shaved it off with a razor by accident {yes, that can really happen} – I guess karma came around…upside: I discovered eyebrow gel and pencils because of that unfortunate accident.

Question of the hour: Would it be summer without the popsicle? I think not! The Fourth of July is like the epitome of summer; if summer were a book The Fourth of July would be the climax of the book. Since the Fourth of July is the day that summer is basically defined by all summer favorites and summer classics must be fit into this one day. For the Fourth of July pools, fireworks, hotdogs, and popsicles are a must!

This Fourth make your fourth of July pop with some very festive popsicles. P.S. the watermelon pops are my favorite.

Here’s where to get the recipe. Click on the name of the popsicle to be directed to the website where you can find the recipe.
