Sweets and Snacks Expo: Icee Lollipop

My ten year-old son thinks this will be a hit because he likes Icees. The sample we received is blue raspberry, which is his favorite lollipop flavor.

Compared to a DumDum pop, this one is larger (.6 oz) and tastes better, according to our expert, "It's tastes more like blue raspberry. I think it has more sugar."
The big surprise came when he cracked it open (I hate when they bite their lollipops!), the center is filled with a tart, sour powdery center. And it fizzes in your mouth!

On a scale of 1 to 4, with 4 being the best, our tiny taster ranks this treat a 3.

By the end of the taste test, my boy's lips. teeth and tongue were bright blue, much to his delight and my disgust. Have I mentioned my disdain for artificial food dyes?

At any rate, I'm thinking the sealants we had applied to his molars during his last dental check-up are going to be a worthwhile investment.
