Kids, summer, and Popsicles.
It's hard to make that combination any better. However, now Popsicle brand has come out with what it claims is a slower-melting version that not only lasts longer, but is less messy!
KFDI's Brian and Kellie headed to a Derby 2nd grade classroom to find out. Each kid got two popsicles---one which was "regular", and the other which was "slow-melt" (and they didn't know which was which!)
Nearly every kid said the "slow-melt" lasted longer. And the big kids, Kellie and Brian, agreed.
We did a test of our own, putting a plate with each one side by side in the sun. The "slow-melt" had a thicker consistency when it did melt---which was later than the regular popsicle.
The company says the difference is what it lists as "ice structuring particles" in its ingredients.
