Cherry Lime Ice Pops

Sometimes, an idea that sounds good in print doesn’t taste good when it’s made. Such was the case with these cherry ice pops.

Cherry Lime Ice Pop

I followed a basic recipe I found online, and replaced the sugar and water with some store-bought lemonade. The total amount of sugar would be quite little, I recognized, and I think that’s what contributed to the crumbly, unpleasant texture of these ice pops. Taste-wise, my wife said they resembled cough syrup, which, I guess, says something about synthetic cherry flavourings.
