The Worst Popsicle

Yesterday I stopped at Whole Foods on my way home from work. Since I've been feeling a little under the weather, I thought I might get something nice and cold for my throat. So I grabbed a box of Mango popsicles. "Mmmm," I smiled. "These will be nice to have later."

I was wrong. Terribly wrong. When I took a bite that night, I tasted the worst popsicle I've ever had. Yes it has mango. It also has CHILE!!! Hot chile!

Look carefully at the box.

In tiny letters is the word "chile"!!!! Tiny fricking letters!

And there's a chile barely visible in the corner next to the pictures of the ingredients.

Yes, I should have looked more carefully at the box before I grabbed it. But really, there needs to be a warning: "Hey dumb white people, this doesn't taste good. Please don't eat it." A dessert like this is totally unnecessary. It's cruel, is what it is. Your mouth thinks you're getting something cold and pleasant, and you get fricking fire instead. Not cool.

I like hot foods. I even like hot sweets like ginger candy. I don't want hot ice cream. Ever. Sorry Mexico. I really like most all of your food. But you lost me on this one.
