This mom does not like messes. I do indulge my kids–playdough, mud puddles, roasted marshmallows, ice cream cones, popsicles. But I cringe with every second.

Popsicle brand has now introduced Slow Melt Popsicles.  “. . . a touch of gelatin makes the fun last longer than our regular pops!”



Do they not realize that the longer it takes something sticky to melt, the higher the odds for a bigger mess? What group of mothers did Popsicle survey for this bright idea? The box should include the disclaimer “Popsicle waives responsibility for clean up.”

Now if Popsicle could create a “NO melt” popsicle, they would have more friends than they can shake a stick at! (Ha! No pun intended.)
