I'm the kind of person who explores the grocery store aisles for new food items when I go grocery shopping. I love finding new products that make my life easier ... and I especially love finding fun novelty items! Awesome flavored cookies, weird potato chips flavors, mix-ins for baking, innovative ice cream products .... you name it! You can almost bet that I buy them to try at least once!

On a recent shopping trip, I spotted these WONKA™ Peel-a-Pop™ frozen treats. Upon further inspection, I realized that you could actually peel these treats like a banana! Say what?! No kidding - they actually peel like a banana!! How fun and cool is that?! And .... you can eat the peel too!!! Behind that peel is a vanilla flavored dessert! These babies are only 70 calories per pop too - making it a guilt-free treat for the kid in all of us! :)

My kiddos especially loved the grape flavor and I actually preferred the banana flavor. Both were great and so much fun! They were the perfect treat on a hot Summer day ... and now that we're back to school and the weather is still Summer-like here in Phoenix, it made a nice after-school snack too! We'll be picking up some more WONKA™ Peel-a-Pop™ frozen treats on our next trip!

You can find WONKA™ Peel-a-Pop™ frozen treats nationwide at Wal-Mart, Target, Safeway and Kroger stores at a suggested retail price of $4.29 per 8-bar carton.

I thought it would be fun to wonkafy one of my favorite treats - cupcakes!! I took the inspiration from the WONKA™ Peel-a-Pop™ Frozen Treats and created these Grape Cupcakes with Banana Icing - two flavors from the frozen treats and two flavors my kiddos love, but I never thought about combining! 

I hopped over and followed Wonka on Facebook and Wonka on Twitter so I can stay up to date on the latest WONKA™ news and special offers! You can follow them too! :)

Now about those crazy delish cupcakes ....
