I Tried A Meat Popsicle Because I Have Nothing Left To Lose

Frozen beef broth on a stick is not as bad as it sounds.

Posted on

Recently, I heard about something potentially terrifying: A meat popsicle.

To be more specific (and slightly less horrifying), it's a popsicle made with beef broth.

These beef broth popsicles are sold at Springbone, a restaurant in New York City specializing in bone broth.

Why bone broth? is a very reasonable question you might be asking. Some believe bone broth has health benefits.It's summer, and it's hot, and you CAN turn almost any liquid into a popsicle, so why wouldn't you live the dream?

Apparently I'm the kind of person who says, "Beef popsicle? Yes, please!" So I went to try it.

While I'm (weirdly) not against the concept of a savory popsicle, these pops are actually fruit flavored to mask the meat broth taste.

Other ingredients include pomegranate juice, coconut milk, raspberry puree, and maple sugar.

"It tastes better than it sounds" is what I was told when I ordered it.

It was tangy and vaguely fruity. I felt like I sensed a subtle, but not unpleasant meatness to it, but that could've just been psychological. It wasn't bad!

The bottom of the ice pop had a sort of congealed quality, but I kept eating it. And maybe even liked it?

Here's proof that I ate the whole thing even though no one forced me to. The fact that it wasn't too sweet was a bonus and it didn't really taste like meat.

And maybe I was disappointed it didn't taste like meat? What is wrong with me? Now I legit want a meat-flavored popsicle. Get back to me when you've come up with a REAL beef popsicle.
