Day 13 - Popsicles

These are all my favorite flavors. It was a special treat to buy Popsicles when we were little. With 6 children in the family and very hot summers in Eastern Washington, you would have had to own  a franchise to keep up with the rate of consumption we would have achieved. 

My Mom kept the sticks from store bought Popsicles, washed them in hot soapy water, then used them in homemade "popsicles". No fancy popsicle freezer forms for us! We made them in squares from Kool Aid in aluminum ice cube trays. At the time, my favorite flavor was grape.


  1. This sketch made me go to the freezer to get a popsicle. Not kidding! Raspberry.

    1. And we used to make them with Kool-Aid in ice trays, too! Ahh, summer.

    2. Haha! Then my purpose is fulfilled! I want to paint food so that you can almost taste it. :)
      Those ice cube Popsicles were a bit unwieldy and you had to decide if you were going to suck all the flavor out and be left with a half of a cube of white ice, or savor a little bite at a time while freezing your teeth! Great memories.
