Popsicles or Ice Cream?

Popsicle or Ice Cream?

To celebrate the first official day of Summer, I'd like to talk frozen treats. Rising temps means cooling treats. Popsicles tend to be lower in fat than ice cream, but ice cream is cool comfort food. While most people prefer one type of frozen treat to the other, some opt for popsicles because the calorie count is lower. What about you? Which frozen treat are you more likely to eat?

Popsicles do not even compare to ice cream. But I'm having a lot of popsicles this summer anyway, since sugar-free popsicles are a lot easier on the tummy than no-sugar-added ice cream.

While popsicles can be tasty, NOTHING beats ice cream! Or frozen yogurt, they taste the same to me. Either way, cold and creamy = yum!

Im an ice cream fiend. Whether it's June 21st and hot as hell or December 21 and freezing, Ill always love ice cream. Popsicles are messy and boring to me. There's nothing to them-they're so boring and I hate that they melt so much before I can finish so you're stuck with sticky, dyed up hands and shirts(if you're like me and clumsy). Never been much of a popsicle person-I dont even do ice cream in cones for the same purpose(melting and running down the cone/hands). I always get the dish.

I love ice cream. I'd rather have a tiny bit of it than a larger portion of popsicles

:star: Ice cream. Not too often, though, because it really wrecks my stomach. :-(
