The Sprite Gummy [insert any type – bears, worms, sour, etc] Candy Popsicle is trending pretty well on Pinterest lately. Enough that it popped into my mind while in the grocery store with both kids last week. A 20oz bottle of Sprite and a bag of Gummy Bears were our sudden impulse #summerinthemoment buy.
The idea is simple:
1) Fill popsicle molds about 3/4 full with Sprite. 2) Add gummy candy. 3) Insert stick/top of mold.
4) Freeze. 5) Enjoy.
Seems easy enough, right? Well, they were easy to make, but were kind of … okay in the end. Dylan enjoyed eating them, but I found the flavor a bit flat. The gummy candy, as I expected, got hard – as in very hard to bite or chew. And, as the pops warmed up, they dripped sticky melted soda so we quickly realized this made for a better outdoor treat after I got my arm stuck to the kitchen table following dinner one night.
Verdict? Although it was tempting and some of the photos online look gorgeous, I would not make these again. Keep the two separate for a snack. Just drink the Sprite and eat the gummy candy.
