Way more adult than those plastic-tube freeze pops you ate as a kid.

Nothing cools me off like a ice-cold popsicle after sunbathing by the pool. And don't get me wrong, those two-stick posicles we had as kids are great (orange is the best, and if you think anything else you're an animal). But let's be real...why stick with frozen food dye number whatever and make them yourself? Not only does that keep you in the know about what's actually in them, BUT you can create an endless amount of flavor combinations to keep things interesting.
