Freezepops got me through....

With both of my girls I was pregnant during the summer time....Becky born in Sepetember and Ellie the end of August....Those years we had glorious sunshine and a lot of hot days.....

As soon as I became pregnant people were asking what my cravings were.....Roast parsnips covered in gravy with Becky and Garlic sauce with Ellie...The one thing which was similar with both of my pregnancies was the Ice Pop craving....

With Becky it was so hot I needed something which would cool me down and was refreshing at the same time...I was so hot all of the time...I used to go to the corner shop every day and buy those Mr Freeze ice pops....The shopkeeper used to joke with me that he only kept them in stock for me....Towards the end of my pregnancy my dad used to buy me boxes of them from the Cash & Carry.....What a hero!

I didn't know they were called Freezepops until yesterday....It makes sense....lol They were always Ice Pops to me but I'm certain of one thing Mr. Freeze was my freezepop of choice....


When I was pregnant with Ellie I ate them for a different reason.....I had terrible morning sickness which lasted all day and with it being so hot the midwife actually recommended them as they could help keep dehydration at bay as well as cooling me down.....They also seemed to settle my stomach so I could manage to eat a little.....The freezer was always stocked with them.....

Even now as soon as the weather starts to get warmer I stock the freezer with them.....The girls love them!!

Mr. Freeze freezepops are now available in retail packs from the leading supermarkets making them perfect to purchase and store at home ahead of those cravings hitting you....

If you are a fan of Mr Freeze why don't you go and say hi to them.....Give them a tweet or say hello on Facebook.

What were your cravings? Did you crave Freezepops?

I am being sent a selection of Mr Freeze freezepops in exchange for sharing
my own experiences of cravings in pregnancy

    I do love these ice lollies but my weirdest craving is sour cream and chive. I could have it with anything!

  5. Obviously me being a bloke, I have never been pregnant, but D, on the other hand had a craving for Cadburys Cream Eggs. Our egg tray in the fridge was always stocked up with them. Even to this day, 13 years on, I still surprise her with them. Just a couple of days ago, I snuck one into her handbag and sent her an email at work telling her to check. She was well happy.

  6. I can see they would be fab during pregnancy. I had one summer pregnancy (9lb+ baby born in October 2003 - very hot summer that year) and it was my hardest. I always called them ice pops too! I never had any really strong cravings, but I tended to want more savoury food than I would usually.

  7. Aww icepops are yum and remind me of childhood! I didn't really have any cravings when pregnant, but my tastes changed a lot, I couldn't eat curries or spicy foods, which I lOVE normally! Pregnancy does such funny things to you doesn't it? xx #pocolo
