We all crave an iced creamy dessert to cool ourselves on a summer day when the sun is beating down on us viciously. Just the thought of licking on sweet and cold ice cream is a pure delight to our senses. Creamsicle is a frozen dessert mainly vanilla ice cream on a lolly stick with orange juice on the side. It’s absolutely scrumptious and there is a day set aside for all those ice cream & Creamsicle lovers.
Learn about Creamsicle Day
Did you know that there have been many different variations of the Creamsicle made by the brand? For example, you can get the Fudgsicle, which is a chocolate-flavored pop that has a texture that is very much like ice cream? There is also a Dreamsicle, which contains ice milk rather than ice cream. The brand has also created sugar-free pops, low-fat pops, and 100-calorie bars, so if you are watching what you eat or you are on a certain type of diet, you do not need to miss out on a Creamsicle; you can still indulge and enjoy yourself!
