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!”

Longer?

MESSIER!!!

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.)
