If there is one thing in our home that everyone will devour it has to be sour straws. It’s like this radar detector that goes off and they all come to the vicinity that I have them in. I can buy a bucket of them but with in a week they are absolutely gone. Oh and if I got at least one I am lucky.
Two evenings ago my other half, V, picked some sour straws up for this recipe Sour Straw Popsicles. I honest thought there is no way they are going to last the night. Funny enough I was the one that devoured the most of them and yes some were actually left over. We managed to hide them for the teens and eat some ourselves while watching The Haunting. The other half and I like spooky shows. I am not quite sure if it is because he is interested in them or likes to make fun of the people. His answer is when it’s really scary just drink beer and ignore it. Psst… He’s Czech. Not all of us think drinking beer will get rid of the ghosts.
I managed to slip the sour straws away from him and put them aside for these popsicles. A few months ago I picked up a Zoku classic popsicle mold. After trying a ton of other molds I love how easy they come out of the Zoku molds. I hear there is some others out there that work just as well and have cute designs. If you know of some put it in the comments below because I would love to check them out.
Moving on to the popsicles I finally had the chance to use the mold and make some popsicles. These sour straw popsicles are so sour that it will make your entire face pucker and that’s a good thing!
Gosh! Look at it just run down her hand. Sticky! These were so much fun but I would use the sour straws over the sour straw bites next time. The sour bites became a bit mushy but super hyped up the flavor of the popsicles.
They are super sour and melt fast!
- 9 tablespoons of Kool Aid
- 18 to 22 pieces of Sour Straws cut up or Sour Straw Bites
- Popsicle mold
- Mix about 2 tablespoons of Kool Aid with water. Fill mold with 3 pieces of candy and top with Kool Aid. This is the break down for each mold. If you want them to be more sour then add more Kool Aid and more bites. Freeze for about two hours or until frozen solid.
