People Are Brawling Over The Correct Name For This Summer Treat

With summer around the corner, we’re all here waiting to relive our childhood summers when everything was carefree and fun. From staying out until the sun goes down to bronzing our skin, there are some things in life that are just so nostalgic. Who can forget some of our favorite summer snacks? A user going by Lucy (@fetusleen) tweeted a picture of a stack of the frozen treats and asked what people call them and which flavor they think is best.

The tweet went viral, with people online brawling over what the proper name for these icy treats are.

A bunch of people said “Otter Pops,” but…I’ve honestly never heard of that in my life.

Apparently, Otter Pops are a brand and each Otter Pop had a name and personality.

But there were a zillion different generic names for them and different brands depending on where you lived as a kid.

Like Tip-Tops…

Flav-Or-Ice.

Freezies…

Mr. Freezes…

Ice pops…

Esquimalitos…

Fun pops…

Bolis…

Apparently, they’re called Zooper Doopers in Australia and New Zealand.

Jublies in the UK.

And someone else brought up what he thinks might be the Asian equivalents (SORT of).

The list goes on! And other people thought they were called “popsicles” but they’re NOT—popsicles have sticks in them.

Quite a few people referred to the cuts you’d get in your mouth trying to chew the plastic packages open.

 

And some people called them nothing at all.

And finally, I found one person who also called them icees.

A quick scan of the answers leads me to believe that blue was the flavor chosen as people’s favorites most often.

Well, whatever you call them, it’s time to stock up on them because summer is almost here!
