Friday's Finds: Melona Bars

For this week's find, I am sharing our newest obsession:  Melona bars!!  Upon an unsuccessful search for peanut and tree nut-free popsicles (we were looking for the red/white/blue rocket pops to have on the 4th of July), S stumbled onto these gems.  They were food allergy friendly for him (ice cream and novelties are tricky in Canada - 98% of varieties in stores have the "may contain peanuts or tree nuts").  We first tried the banana flavored bars....THAT box lasted a mere 48 hrs.  What?  it was hot out that week, no judgy!  I guess you could say that banana was our "gateway" flavor; during the following week's grocery haul, S pranced his way to the checkout armed with banana, AND melon, AND mango (he really did prance).

These can best be described as fruit and cream smoothies, frozen onto a stick.....think creamsicle - except, instead of the fruit on the outer layer and the cream in the middle - it's blended into one smooth consistency, a frozen stick of deliciousness!! Each flavor is SPOT ON!!  Yeah, we've tried them all....several times.

Although the packaging shows a green fleshed melon, which I always associate with being a honeydew variety, it tastes like cantaloupe!  I know what you're thinking....not your typical frozen pop flavor....it's heaven on a stick, that is - if you like cantaloupe.....if not, go for banana, mango, or strawberry.  If we had to choose a favorite flavor, melon - hands down.

I don't know if these are available throughout the US....I've read on-line that they are available in Hawaii - and have quite the following there; yet on the mainland, not so much.  A few people have had success finding them in Asian markets, as they originated in Korea - in fact, they are one of Korea's most popular frozen treats.  They have only just recently, in 2011, been made available up here in Canada.  

So, if you are planing a trip to either Hawaii, Canada, or Korea....look these up!!

    1. Well, you know one of the ingredients MUST be pureed liquified crack. Seriously, there should be an addiction warning on the label of these bad boys :) If you find a copycat recipe, please let me know!!
