Tropical Candy-Corn-Inspired Popsicle Recipe

These Candy-Corn-Inspired Popsicles Are Even Better Than Halloween Candy

The following post is excerpted from Tried and Tasty and written by Yvonne Feld, who is part of POPSUGAR Select Food.

Let's talk candy corn for a minute. I saw a graphic on Facebook recently that said something like: "How to Eat Candy Corn: Throw It Out." I laughed out loud. Too dang funny. Do you know what candy corn is made of? According to Tanis Confectionery, "Candy corn is made primarily from sugar, corn syrup, confectioners wax, artificial coloring and binders." Ick. So I've taken the candy corn idea and made it healthy for you. First was my Tropical Candy Corn Parfait. Can you tell I'm a fan of the tropics? Take me there now! I love that you can take traditional Halloween sweet treats and give them a healthy twist.

I'm new to popsicles this year on Tried and Tasty, and I love them. First my sweet and tart strawberry lemon popsicles and then my peach mango lemonade popsicles. I couldn't get my hands on my Norpro Ice Pop Maker fast enough. It makes perfect popsicles every time. Just look at those babies. Don't you just want to sink your teeth right in to them? They aren't just for summertime. If you ask me, they're perfect any time! Ask me again when there's three feet of snow outside. I might change my mind. For now, the weather has been gorgeous and I'm enjoying my tropical popsicles, dang it — and I think you should, too.
