I remember growing up in the Caribbean making ice pops with my mom. However, it wasn’t these particular Strawberry Honey Ice Pops. In the Caribbean we had lots of other fruits that she would use to make her ice pops and they were always delicious. It was always a fun activity to do together, and we would eagerly wait for them to freeze. Now, as an adult with my own children, I would make ice pops every summer, because they bring back fond memories of my childhood.
