Postmodern Art Popsicles

by Jackie Alpers on October 6, 2013

Post modernism in popsicle form

What is the nature of art? Can it exist in popsicle form? Is it still art after the popsicle has been eaten? How does the process of melting affect the piece? These are some of the questions that I pondered while creating, and then ingesting this popsicle.

I made it from diamond shaped sprinkles in primary colors, and Sno-Caps candies. Some of the sprinkles melted while others stayed intact. One of the cool things about working with sprinkles in liquids is that different types of sprinkles dissolve at different rates, so I had no idea what this was going to look like until I  ran the ice pop mold under warm water and yanked my creation out.

You can learn more about the science of sprinkles (sprinkology?) in my book.

Postmodern Popsicles
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup sprinkles and small candies such as Sno-Caps, Nerds, or gummies.


  1. Place sprinkles and candies in ice pop molds and top off with almond milk. The sprinkles will sweeten the pops. For even sweeter pops add one teaspoon sugar.

I was trying to think of a way to use my art history and religious studies degree to teach my daughter about something more than what she learns in gradeschool. Art in the guise of food! Genius!
