FlavorIce Flavors of Summer!

Summer is coming! And with that, you’ll need to know what flavors of Fla-Vor-Ice you’ll want lined up inside your freezer! Most of the time when you buy the bags, you’ll get an assortment of flavors, but it’s often hard to tell what exactly they are…so here’s a list of what you might find inside your next box!

What is FlavorIce?  Flavorice is flavored liquid (frozen treat) that comes in a plastic tube. These “frozen pops” are a FAVORITE of kids, and is a great way to cool off in summer.  You stick the tubes in your freezer where they freeze.  When a hot day comes, you pull it out, cut off a corner of the plastic tube, and suck out the frozen liquid inside! It’s a refreshing and tasty way to cool off on a hot summer day and has been for 35 years!!

What flavors are available in Flavor Ice Tubes?

The main Original flavors (if you want to stick with the classic)…they are sometimes called the “Fruity” flavors (if you’re trying to find them in the store). They are:
1.  Lemon Lime (this will be the green tube, and is often a favorite!)
2. Orange (the Orange tube)
3. Berry Punch (the blue tube – everyone likes this one becuase it turns the tongue blue!)
4. Grape (the purple tube)
5. Tropical Punch (the pink tube)
6. Strawberry (the red tube – a kid favorite!)

Other varieties of Fa-For-Ice include:

Light Flavors – These are in the Sugar Free line, and include Lemon Lime, Strawberry, Berry Punch, and Grape.

Candy Shoppe Flavors – There are four varieties of “candy” that include bubble gum, banana taffy, cotton candy, and red licorice.

Tropical Flavors – There are 6 choices in this line including Summer Punch, Pineapple, Berry Punch, Banana, Tropical Punch, and Citrus Punch.

Here’s a classic 1992 commercial for the frozen treat!  Motto:  We Freeze Please!

Jelly Belly Flavors – Part 1

Jelly Belly jelly beans are considered by many to be “the” go-to gourmet bean. They are well-known to be good tasting and have the best assortment of flavors. They even made a series of beans with names and flavors after the famous Harry Potter books – the series, called the “Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans”are, just like the book, meant to disgust, amaze, and yes, again, disgust!

If you can think of a flavor, chances are that Jelly Belly has made it! In fact, there are so many flavors to choose from, that I’ve broken down the list into 2 parts.  Here is part 1…look for part 2 on tomorrow’s post!

The “Harry Potter” jelly beans out today are not actually the original Bertie Bott’sJelly BeanJelly Bean thatwe all came to love (and hate) in the early 2000’s.

Gum flavor that lasts a long time!

Probably one  of the longest lasting gum flavors I have tried lately  is the Dentyne Ice brand. This gum advertises on the package that after chewing it for at least twenty minutes your breath will be fresh for at least 45 minutes!

The gum flavor indeed does last a long time! Even after chewing the gum for 30 minutes there is still flavor coming out. And not only do you get flavor while chewing the gum your breath does actually stay pretty fresh for a decent period of time.

There is not guarantee that this gum flavor lasts the longest, but it does last a long time! Try it!

Bubble Gum Flavors

Bubble Gum is a type of gum especially popular with kids because it’s a gum especially suited to blowing bubbles – hence the name!!  Bubble gum comes in a variety of flavors – all artificially flavored or course.

What are the origins of bubble gum?

Bubble Gum was created in the 1920’s by a company in the United States. The name of the original bubble gum was called Dubble Bubble.
