Popsicle or Ice Cream?

The weather is heating up all over the country, except maybe here in the Bay Area. Warm weather means folks are reaching for 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 over the other, some opt for popsicles because the calorie count is lower. What about you? Which frozen treat are you more likely to eat?

I have always preferred popsicles over ice cream. I like the fresh taste it has and since I'm not allowed to eat any diary products (I'm lactose intolerant) it's easy to chose.

Mmm, fro-yo. Ice-cream is a bit too rich for hot summer days. Of course it doesn't help that I'm slightly lactose intolerant... but fro-yo is worth the discomfort ;)

Ice cream is my weakness. I could eat a whole Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough pint in one sitting. True story.

Ice cream, duh! Popsicles do not excite me, and I hate the taste of the stick. No ice cream on a stick for me, either, unless I can scrape it off into a bowl first.

Whatever's available...usually it's ice cream, so that's what I'll have. I like going to get frozen yogurt though...and I don't mind popsicles - except they seem like they have more sugar than yogurt or ice cream. Don't know how true that is, but that's what it tastes like to me.

Ooh, when it's really hot out, I love popsicles. I make them with real juice and they're delicious.

I can't even remember the last time I had a popsicle. I find them messy and not terribly exciting. It is either ice cream or gelato or fruit smoothies, mmmmmm.

Popsicles. It gets so hot here that ice cream is too heavy.

Definitely ice cream. Higher calories or not, at least it is a bit more than sugar and artificial flavoring. I have to agree with totygoliguez, though. The real-ingredients popsicles at the Mexican grocery store are also great.

Popsicles! Specially those that are from Latin America. A Mexican store was recently open near my house and they sell the best popsicles ever
