You’re the BOMB Pop Treats

Summer just wouldn’t be complete with out a trip down memory lane.  Who else remembers enjoying the iconic rocket shaped red, white and blue summer treats?  As kids we rarely enjoyed a treat from the ice cream truck, but when we did I loved getting a Bomb Pop.  So before the summer ends I thought it would be a great idea to celebrate with a special treat.

With the help of our sponsor, Bomb Pop I created a festive “You’re the BOMB Pop” summer treat as a fun way to celebrate these hot summer days.  It’s the perfect way to make an ordinary summer day extraordinary, and show your little ones just how special you think they are.  Of course these would also make great treats for holiday celebrations like the 4th of July, Memorial Day and Labor Day too!

One of the reasons I love Bomb Pop is because you can enjoy the multiple cool, delicious flavors all in one pop.  Flavor roll call: Cherry? Here. Lime? Yup. Blue raspberry? Oh yeah.  It’s the Original, need we say more? And whether you decide to enjoy yours on a stick or in a fizzy drink you’l instantly be transported back to your childhood memories and summer dreams.  Of course, that’s why I’m introducing them to my kids too, because what’s a summer memory without the one and only original Bomb Pop?

I started by making some colorful straw flags to make our treat just a little more festive.  Download the FREE printable “You’re the Bomb” straw flags.

Print out the Bomb Pop straw flags and cut them out.  Use double sided tape or glue to attach them to striped paper straws or to the bottom of the Bomb Pop stick.

Hand out the Bomb Pop’s to your super amazing kiddos, let them enjoy a cool summer treat and a little boost in their confidence.

Or get extra fancy and make a show stopper drink. These drinks are a fun way to celebrate, super easy, and would be perfect for a backyard BBQ this Labor Day.

Bomb Pop Fizzy Drink

Fill a clear glass with ice and then pour your favorite lemon-lime soda into the glass.  Next add a Bomb Pop, with one of our festive straw flags of course, and a striped paper straw for the ultimate kid-friendly drink.
