Because the internet is just full of things that make you scratch your head, I should not be surprised when I come across things like this...but I have to admit, I was.

Now I have probably consumed my weight in ordinary freezer pops over the span of  almost 40 years. The syrupy sweet summer staple can likely be found in every freezer from here to Ft. Myers! I'm not sure the same can be said for this newest trend: Pickle Freezer Pops. And yes, they exactly what they sound to be. According to the creators of the Pickle-Ice, a company which specializes in pickle things, Van Holten's Pickles, this tart treat actually may have some benefits for you!

"Simply put Pickle-Ice is the same brine in our pickles with additional electrolytes added. It’s a refreshing treat on a hot day, and an athletic supplement that helps re-hydrate and prevent cramps."

What's more is that a quick search of Amazon, and you can actually buy Pickle-Ice in bulk! It's totally worth reading the reviews, however, as people have very strong opinions on whether or not this product lives up to the hype!

Now, if you're a pickle fan, this is something you're likely pretty excited about. If you're not, imagine the fun you could have putting these out at your kid's next pool-party!?

Just a thought. Either way, you're welcome!
