I have to admit that when I picked out this ice cream/Popsicle, I picked it out because I thought it would be a really simple standard frozen treat. I thought it would be average, simple, not bad, but not impressive either. I was wrong, and fortunately I was wrong in a good way.

Although the first half of this ice cream is fairly simple. Sure it has a triple layer of frozen flavours but it's still nothing spectacular. I found the flavour combination to be nice, and the texture was really smooth. A nice texture on a Popsicle is important because it can really decide how long you want to let the cold stuff melt in your mouth. If it feels like your eating broken glass you'll tend to chew it up and get it down faster. However if it melts smoothly, you tend to keep it in your mouth longer and if it tastes good then you'll enjoy it more.

So with a good, but slightly average top part, we come to the surprise, the bottom. The bottom portion of the frozen treat is also the yellow layer in the top portion. The difference is in the top part of this treat the yellow is a pretty minor player. The bottom is where the yellow part shines. This yellow half had to be the sourest Popsicle I have ever eaten in my entire life. I found my eyes watering and my mouth puckering. It wasn't a bad thing either. The fact that the first half was nice and sweet allowed the last sour half to be very nice, although a little shocking. I think if you made a frozen treat that was all sour, it wouldn't have worked. But this combination was great and it made for a really creative and fun treat.
