Ok so truthfully? One of the most memorable things about summers gone by, are my obsession with Otter Pops. I don’t know how my dad kept those things in the house during the summer. I mean, they’re inexpensive and all, but they went fast.
I always loved the little otters on the front of the packages with names and personalities. It’s true: my favorite animal is an otter. They’re so flippin’ cute! And they taste delish too. Well, at least Otter Pops do! Alexander the Grape was always my favorite, what about yours?
My sister and I used to fight over which Otter we were going to eat that day as though there weren’t plenty to go around.
I didn’t realize that Otter Pops are made with real fruit juice so I haven’t fed them to my own children in an effort to protect them and their little figures. And my sanity, you know, with all that added sugar in most things.
We haven’t spent much time outdoors this summer, between the rainy weather and The Muffin’s broken arm, it’s been really difficult to get outside and enjoy the heat. Admittedly, we’ve spent way more time plugged in than I’d like to admit.
Yeah, the blog is called “The Dirty Floor Diaries”, but I really do try to keep my floors as clean as possible which means that Otter Pops must be eaten outdoors in order to keep the sticky off of the wood. I see a trip to the store for some Otter Pops in my near future. It might urge us to get outside and play!
