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?

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
