Among our (mine and the children's) friends, it's understood that the children are welcome to the popsicles. They're likely to eat a a box or two in an afternoon.
Most of us have children that will eat a box in two days.
I don't get wiggy over it, usually. I figure it's no different than Kool-Aid, which has never been consumed in my home. (We're juice drinkers when it's flavor we're after, usually organic.)
Trev and I walked to the store a few minutes ago, and upon putting Maddie's tiny Dora popsicles in the freezer (remember when we were kids, and they were those double ones?) I thought I'd check out the stats, to deliver the news to DH, who tends to say "Eat something good before you have another popsicle, please..."
Dora Popsicles - serving size: 2.
Calories: 60. Psh.
Ounces of liquid: 1.1.
And there you have it.
They could eat 8 in a row, and it would not amount to one medium size glass of kool-aid.
Which I suspected all along, but it's nice to come face to face with it.
