Spring has sprung and summer is near, which means it's time for us to stock our freezers with the most tasty frozen treats to make us feel like a kid again.

You know what I'm talking about. The frozen sticks of artificially flavored fruit juices in every color of the rainbow. Red dye 40? Yes, please!

The treats are known as Otter Pops—or more generically, freezer pops—but others remember their favorite brain-freezing delights by other names.


Twitter user @fetusleen asked people two very pressing questions:

"It's dead summer. your mom comes home from the store with THESE. what do u call these and what is the best color?"


Otter Pops, which are purportedly made from 100% real fruit juice, sit on store shelves typically at room temperature for consumers to freeze back home. The seven colors and flavors depict different cartoon characters, each with a wacky name.

These include:

Blue (blue raspberry): Louie-Bloo Raspberry, Pink (strawberry): Strawberry Short Kook, Green (lemon-lime): Sir Isaac Lime, Red (fruit punch ): Poncho Punch, Purple (grape): Alexander the Grape, Orange (orange): Little Orphan Orange.

There used to be Yellow (lemon): Rip Van Lemon, but the flavor was discontinued in the 1970s.

The tweet received over 19k likes and people shared their favorite flavors.









There are also the rejected flavors that remain in the freezer.






How do you prioritize the flavors?





While the frozen treats satisfy our sweet tooth at a pool party, not everyone has good memories of Otter Pops.



Depending on the region, some people just called them popsicles.






So, what are YOUR favorite flavors?

We're all aware television shows are fake and, heck, even the ones pretending to be real have a certain level of fabrication permeating throughout. That's not why we watch, though, we watch because we want to be invested into believing in a show's characters and their journeys. So when a character is mysteriously removed from a show with zero explanation it can leave a bad taste in our mouths that never goes away.

There's something quite wonderful about finding a loophole and taking advantage of it... especially when you're broke. (Trust me, it could mean the difference between surviving and well, not.)

When I was really poor, for example, I used to go to a Burger King to get cheap burgers with what little money I had. The food was filling and helped tide me over. I eventually found a glitch on the app that allowed me to add two extra burgers to my order. Trust me, it saved me on my worst days. (As you can imagine, I am really sick of fast food now that I'm much more financially stable.)

After Redditor Thym3Travr asked the online community, "What loophole did you exploit mercilessly?" people shared their stories.
