Cherry season is here. Yaasssss! I love cherry-flavored anything. As much as I love fresh cherries, I use frozen cherries a lot for smoothies, sauces and in these ice pops. When I was a kid, I loved cherry Italian ices, especially the bottom syrupy, crystallized stuff. I couldn’t wait to flip it over and dig in. <grin>!
