A few parents shared that they do similar things with their own kids, with one woman admitting when her daughter asks for ‘ice cream’ she gives her frozen water.   

Erin explained in the comments that the swap was more about keeping her kids from making a mess than tricking them. 

‘My kids are five and two years old and they get these so I don’t have to clean up a sticky mess off my furniture,’ she told one commenter.

She also shared that her boys happen to love ice and always her ask for a cube when she gets a drink. 

Erin told BuzzFeed News that she actually came up with the idea when her oldest son helped her get ice cubes out of a tray and started begging her to have some of the ice chunks to suck on.   

The mom said she isn’t tricking her kids; they know it’s frozen water, but they still love it. She noted that her oldest son was the one who came up with the name ‘water popsicles.’ 

‘Both of my kids always say they’re yummy,’ she said, ‘but they also think that every flavor of real popsicles tastes the same, so I think it’s more that they’re excited about having something frozen on a popsicle stick than it is about the actual taste.’
