Battle Of The Bomb Pops
Not that bomb pops are that big of a deal in the whole scheme of things. Of life. Actually I didn't really even pay that much attention to them until my husband began bringing them home here and there when we got married.
But then, what really got me noticing the little red, white and blue pops was when I went on this diet.
Did you know they are only 40 calories?!?
40 calories. That's like the equivalent of a few licks of chocolate cake frosting, but you get way more licks out of this.
So, the first bomb pop that he brought home were Blue Bunny Bomb pops, which have this almost creamy taste to to it. The flavors are separated with cherry on top, then vanilla and then blue raspberry on the bottom.
I think Blue Bunny makes the greatest ice cream products around anyway, so I shouldn't really be surprised that their Bomb Pops are also the bomb.
Well, then one day, my husband brings home Kemps Bomb Pop. You would think, that the bomb pop recipe can't be that different. Think again.
This bomb pop did not have that richer creamy taste at all. It had more of an ice pop taste. Like they had just blended their ice-pop flavors together.
What a total let down.
I am not even getting paid to promote Blue Bunny here, but their bomb pops taste way better than Kemps. I know people who read this come from different parts of the country and may not have even heard of Blue Bunny, which comes from Iowa and maybe not even Kemps, which I think is made in Minnesota.
So, I'm curious. Does anyone have a favorite bomb pop brand that I need to be aware of?
Maybe we could have bomb pop face off.
"My bomb pop is better than your bomb pop!"
"No, way! Prove it!"
Spoken as bomb pops clash together... with America the Beautiful playing in the background.
