In case I haven’t told you lately, ya’ll are the BEST readers and bloggers out there. Truly! Thank you all so much who stopped by and for your super supportive comments. No, I’m not letting any negative people get me down! I do what I do because I love it and sharing with all of you is the icing on the cake. No one will stop me from doing that!
So, on that note, I ran across these fruity treats and just had to share with all of you too. Remember growing up, making popsicles out of Koolaid in those plastic popsicle makers, sitting them in the freezer to freeze and then, oh my, what a sweet refreshing treat that was?! Does anyone still have those plastic popsicle things? Weren’t they made by Tupperware? I haven’t seen them in years, have you? We used to put sweet tea in there too. Anyway, here’s the next best thing. I went into Dollar Tree recently when I saw this in their ad:
Wyler’s Italian Ices and man, are they good. Only 50 calories with four delicious flavors, Kiwi Watermelon, Strawberry, Lemon, and Orange Creme. I bought a box and loved them so much, went back and bought about 5 more.
$1!! Are you kidding me, for 8 of these. Now that’s a deal!
My freezer is now stocked up with these. Hubby loves them too, so this is a win-win to have around all summer long. I even saw them at Walgreen’s too for the same price, so hopefully this will be something they stock all summer. The price is stamped on the box.
So, if you’re looking for an inexpensive treat for your kids, go and find some. I promise you’ll love them too!
I’m off with my friend, Judy in Montgomery, for lunch and shopping some antiques. Back on Saturday with a fun Alabama outing we went on recently.

ooooh! Those look really, really good!!!!!
Those look so yummy, Rhoda! We used to have Mr. Freezes in the summer for the kids when they were little. Such a fun and cheap treat.
Sorry you've had some snarky comments lately. I, personally, have been so inspired by projects you have done and frankly have unabashedly stolen a few of your ideas. 🙂
Keep on sharing with us, Rhoda. We love to see what you're doing.
Yum! Those look and sound delish! I'll look for them the next time I'm out shopping.

Yum! I could use one of them now! So glad that you are not letting that stinker get to you. You go girl. Keep doing what you love and being the best at it! Susie~

Yummmm….that's a great sweet treat and the price is definitely right. I remember as a kid makig those popsicles too. Before we had the fancy Tupperware kind, we would freeze juice in an old ice cube tray…most likely the metal ones with the latch (remember them?) We would go outside with one cube wrapped in a paper towel and quickly enjoy them..AHH…good times. 🙂
I just took my daughter to Dollar Tree yesterday. I didn't see the Italian Ice or I would have bought some!
Oh, I am definitely going to check these out. Lately, Dollar Tree and Big Lots have been regular stomping grounds for me for lots of good stuff for tablescaping.
Hope you have a great weekend!

Thanks for the tip, Rhoda! Have a fun weekend! 🙂 I'm hoping to find some GOOD yard sales this weekend with my sister-in-law. Haven't found much of anything the past two weekends. 🙁

We used to make those "tupperware" popsickles. I remember the lemonade running down my hand and then all the way to my elbow. These are definitely a neater way to enjoy a cool treat.
Thanks for the memories.
Rhoda, those sound great – and fit in with my current diet plan! Thanks! Also, I really enjoy your blog. You always think of such interesting and varied things to share. Keep on keeping on! Linda
I totally remember those Tupperware popsicles from when I was a kid!
These sound wonderful, I'll have to look for them next time I'm at the $ store. Thanks for sharing!
its so very cheri says
We have something very similar in our freezer-Italian ice and we got ours from Aldi's grocery store, before we moved to Florida. They have I think 40 in a box – I don't remember how much they were but pretty reasonable. Oh how I wish there was an Aldi's everywhere-if you have one near you –you are so blessed. I could FILL a cart and spend $50-$60. I am not kidding.
I think I still have those Tupperware molds somewhere…..thanks for the tip.
Hi, Rhoda! Hope you have a fun time. I have had a thing for popcicles again this summer, after years of not really thinking of them. I've been splurging on the Edy's ones, though.
I've also bought several boxes because they were so good! 🙂

I'm heading to Dollar Tree to get some of these. I love icy treats like that in the summer when it is hot. Such a refreshing sounding treat! Thanks for sharing!!! I have been reading some of your past posts today. You are such an inspiration!!! I have so many things that I want to do around my house. You have really made me want to get to work on some of my projects!!! Love & blessings from NC!
Thanks for the Wyler's tip, I remember Wyler's from growing up but I don't remember how good they were…off to get some for my family. My husband loves those stick popsicles, and I bought those plastic make your own popsicles containers at Target last year in the Dollar Spot I think it was!
I am going to keep an eye out for those! Great price, excellent calories, and the color is so appealing.
I like reading your blog.
I can't imagine why someone would be critical on someone's blog. The desire to lash out, that only make sense coming from a person in a GREAT deal of pain.
One of the blogs that I read today had the neatest quotes, it was from Plato. It's sort of related to what I'm thinking here.
"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle". It was on the blog: The Lettered Cottage.
I've been thinking, it's a good quote for me to keep in mind when I run across difficult or miserable people. They're in the midst of a hard battle and don't know better than to lash out at either the nearest or weakest or healthiest person they can.
Just a thought. I really out to go walk now. tata.

I love the Luigi brand lemonade flavor italian ice that Costco sells, but I will definitely be stopping by DG…they are a lot less expensive. Very refreshing on the dog days of summer!
Have a super weekend!
Wow only 50 calories. That is just what my grandson needs. Thanks for letting me know about those. I have never seen them before.
