Convenience Store Raid Series: The Great Popsicle Taste Test
In our ongoing attempt to pretend that summer isn't over, Shane and I descended upon the freezer case of the Samsung Big Mart downstairs. We set out to taste our way through the popsicle freezer case. Yes, there is a freezer case devoted almost entirely to individually sold popsicles (and also a case for ice cream). Here are the fascinating results:
Popsicle One: Ppongtta (??) Soda Flavor
Flavor: A cross of cotton candy and Dreamsicle
Impression & Comments: It's a bit awkward to eat out of the plastic, which is shaped almost like a baby bottle, but that awkward plastic also made for no side drippage.
The Verdict: Shane would eat another right now if he had one. Awesome and creamy!
Popsicle Two: Saengtaeng Citrus
Flavor: Chunks of Jeju tangerine right in it. The bar tasted like frozen juice, very vibrant flavor and color.
Impression & Comments: The wide base made it hard to finish off at the end without messing myself. But it's only 65 calories!
The Verdict: I feel like I've missed out for the past year since it's taken me this long to taste the happy.
Popsicle Three: Encho
(Encho is short for enriched chocolate bar)
The Verdict: This popsicle brought out the expletives in Shane, in a good way.
The Verdict: I've have had better watermelon popsicles before, so I should have opted for the other brand. Not worth finishing.
Popsicle Six: Babambar Gold
Flavor: Pieces of chestnut on it, which was nice, but not a lot of flavor to this guy
The Verdict: Shane just wanted to eat the outside and leave the white bean alone.
The Verdict: Yes and yes. Maybe it's possible to melt it to make a cocktail....
Popsicle Nine: Chanys
Flavor: Fruit punch
