Extreme Popsicle Injuries

The below is a bloody napkin.  The blood is mine.

And below, dear readers, you see an innocent looking popsicle… Yes, it looks harmless indeed – tempting and delicious even, particularly on a hot day.  But, I assure you that danger is very present in this scene.  The “myth” I had long ago dismissed about one’s tongue and/or lips sticking to a frozen surface (Remember the movie A Christmas Story?) is in fact emphatically not an old wives’ tale, dear readers. Do not make a fool of yourself as I did. If nothing else, it hurts.

  1. The same thing happened to my 2 year old… Her cheek and tongue got stuck. It was awful. Her face is bruised as a result. I contacted Popsicle and was called back by a snarky rude product specialist who made light of the situation and had no sympathy for my innocent 3 year old daughter. I kid you not the “effected Popsicle” sat in my unconditioned house on a 90 degree day for 45 minutes and did not melt… But there’s no reason to remove them from shelves. These were tropical sugar free pops and NOT slow melt. I’m disappointed that Popsicle took such a lax attitude.
