Mighty Awesome Discovery


My sister Ashley introduced me to Mighty Minis. I hate giving my kids popsicles because inevitably, half-way through eating one, they tire of it and dump it in the garbage (or the grass, or on the patio--but not before they have made themselves completely sticky and ruined whatever they were wearing for the day.)

Enter Mighty Minis. The idea is brilliant. These popsicles are about the size of a chapstick and are made with a hint of gelatin so they are "slow melt." Even Ryan can enjoy one. My kids actually eat the whole thing and usually don't make a mess. I've been known to eat about six after the kids have gone to bed.

My kids love these and so do I. They are so cute, even though I still occasionally find them slow-melting on my couch.

What a great idea! My kids have been ruining a lot of things with the superhero popsicles I have been regretting buying.

Yes, we are in Hatch's ward (Oakton). The Mormon world is so small.

Oh, hello new summer staple. How have I missed that on the frozen foods aisle when I gaze longingly at the ice cream?

Duly noted, should my children ever decide to come on down and make themselves known. ;)

My neighbor turned me on to these and my kids love them! I had kind of forgotten about them. I will have to get some. Thanks for the reminder.

Colton would eat the whole box before I could even get them to the freezer. I wish they'd had those when my kids were little!
