Celebrate Summer with Bomb Pops and Publix - G|veaway & Bomp Pop Inspired Popcorn #Recipe

Every year on the first warm day of the season all those summer memories come flooding back to me and the excitement sets in. It’s again time for food, fun, family and great weather. This year we’ve started the celebrating early with Bomb Pops.

What a memory maker Bomb Pops are. I can remember chasing down the ice cream man, snatching up a Bomb Pop and proceeding around the block with my best friend. The sun  at our backs, juices running down our hands as we tried to beat the heat with that delicious blend of cherry, lime and blue raspberry ice. There really is something truly iconic about Bomb Pops, so much so that there is actually a National Bomb Pop Day – June 27th.

In honor of all the fond summer memories Bomb Pops have brought me and for all the memories they will bring to my children, we made a fun “Bomb Pop” themed treat that we can serve on one of our many summer cookouts…..

Bomb Pop Popcorn

I love that they aren't like solid ice when you take them out of the freezer. They stay just a touch softer, which makes them more like treat rather than sucking on a flavored ice cube.

My favorite thing about the bomb pop when I was a kid was that your mouth ended up being different colors when you were finished.
