Now thats a hell of a thing to see on a sign! I was quite intrigued myself. Why only grape popsicles? What are they doing with the orange and cherry? Is someone in the Park Diner employ aversive to grape and we are eating all the left over popsicles from the past two years? Because you cant just buy only grape right? And if you can, where can I get a piece of that because I like grape a lot….Furthermore, what is significant about the 27th? Its not memorial day. Its the day before. Im right puzzled friends. Right puzzled indeed. Its been a hell of a week and im so behind on everything im sorry. But I promise Im going to catch up on my blog-reading and posting soon. Gretty has been staying wiht us the past few days so Ive had the opportunity to almost complete my list of Gretisms for your reading pleasure, so stay tuned for that! Im going to try to catch up a little now but if i dont get to you today dont forget about me! (especially Ms. Mert whose blog shuts my whole computer down when i open it) (I miss my Mert fix!)
I thought it was interesting that i could not find a picture of the grape. Now this is what generally constitutes a popsicle. Back in the day you could only find them in this form so you would have to break them in half. It was difficult for the obvious reason that you had to keep track of the half-opened freezer burnt pops and ask for a different flavor lest you get stuck with the icky one. (i was better at this than my brothers. To this day, i dont think they caught on to the strategy). Now you can buy them individually wrapped. I couldnt find a picture of an individually wrapped one. But i did find this:
Now these are called Flavor-ice. You buy them in bulk. You get like five hundred for under five dollars or something insane like that. They are individually wrapped but connected together tubes of not yet frozen popsicle juice. You separate them and freeze them and then when you want one, you grab your tube and either snip off the top with scissors or bite it off with your teeth (I recommend the former, but have been reduced to the latter one more than one occasion) Squeeze up the cicle part and enjoy! We do not refer to them as flavor-ice however. We called them Freeze-cicles. Norm just generalizes everything to popsicle however.
With this wide array of frozen possibility, one can only imagine what sunday has in store in terms of the great grape popsicle give away. I only hope i can come back tomorrow with an answer for you friends.
