Summer always reminds me of freeze pops. I have such strong memories of eating entire 100-pack boxes of them over the course of two to three days with my siblings and our childhood homies.
We would eat pop after pop. So much so that we would start throwing the wrappers away in different containers or put them directly into the outside trashcan so that our mother would not realize we had eaten so many of them. (Looking back, she must have known when Saturday came and she was buying another box or two of 100.)
Summer is still memories of eating those freeze pops and driving all around town laughing and having fun.
Every time I see those in a store or see a forgotten wrapper on the ground it makes me smile.
How flavored water in skinny, flimsy plastic tubes could be so delicious and addictive, I will never quite understand. But, I still love them.
