For all my "natural" this and "sustainable" that and "self-sufficient" blah blah, I have to confess:
I am a girl who loves a popsicle.
Twin stix, fudgcicles, bomb pops, drumsticks, pop ice...whatever. High fructose corn syrup? Bring it! Red #40? No problem. Guar gum? Where do I sign? Maybe it's my proximity to the equator, maybe my brain is just heat-addled, who knows - but I think that frozen confections might be one of mankind's greatest achievements.
Not that that's saying much. ;-)
