If there's one image that defines summer, it's a sticky Bomb Pop melting down your hand. But have you ever wondered how the tri-color popsicles are made? How do the three different colors come together without mixing? How does the treat gets those grooves? I lived out my childhood dreams and visited the Bomb Pop factory to get a behind-the-scenes look.

Bomb Pops come from a one-million-square-foot factory in the ice cream capital of the world, Le Mars, Iowa. This is where Bomb Pop's parent company, Wells Enterprises, is headquartered. The company also make ice cream sandwiches, twist cones, Halo Top, and Blue Bunny ice cream, and uses about 114,000 gallons of milk everyday.

Wells acquired Bomb Pops in the 1990s from Merritt Foods. Before then, Bomb Pops were sold out of a truck. "My dad hated the Bomb Pop trucks," said CEO Mike Wells. "They drive their trucks up and down the street and ring the bells. We'd run out there with our money and buy Bomb Pops." You can still buy the popsicles from ice cream trucks, and the brand has added more varieties to the lineup since being acquired. Along with the original and sugar-free versions, there are now Nerds, Crush, Hawaiian Punch, Banana Fudge, Watermelon, Warheads, and Jolly Ranchers flavors.

Out of the Thousands of Clean Skincare Products on the Market, Amazon Shoppers Gave These 10 the Highest Ratings

  Out of the Thousands of Clean Skincare Products on the Market, Amazon Shoppers Gave These 10 the Highest Ratings Including a brightening cleanser that sells every five minutes.Despite navigating the site almost daily, I don't claim to be an expert on Amazon. That honor goes to one of my colleagues, Eden Lichterman — so when she recently flagged that the retailer had covertly launched a "clean beauty" storefront, I couldn't click fast enough. What I found: Dozens of gentle yet effective skincare products, and 10 stand-outs that have won thousands of shoppers' trust and five-star ratings.

On the day I visited, they were churning out Hawaiian Punch Bomb Pops made with the drink's Fruit Juicy Red, Green Berry Rush, and Ocean Orange flavors. It starts with a mixture of sugar, water, and stabilizers that is blended together and pasteurized. Color and flavor is added before being slush frozen.

The slushy syrup is then divided into the three flavors and piped into a rocket mold. The mold sits in a cold, salty brine that freezes the liquid immediately before the next layer is piped on top.

Then a machine pushes a popsicle stick into the frozen mixture. The molds are dipped into a warm brine just long enough for a machine to grab the popsicle sticks and pop them free. From there, the popsicles are dropped into a white plastic packaging, which is sealed. The wrapped pops are boxed up and sent off to the freezer.

But this isn't just any freezer. This is an enormous 12-story warehouse where all the products are frozen and stored before being shipped to stores across the country. The last step is you eating a Bomb Pop while its sticky syrup melts down your hand.

The hospital train helping Ukraine’s sick and wounded .
Chronically ill and injured patients are evacuated from the embattled east to safer hospitals in the west.Lviv, Ukraine – It is 10am on a Tuesday morning in July, and a train has just pulled into a station in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv. As the door to one of the carriages creaks open, paramedics on the platform gingerly lift two young men down the stairs and onto stretchers. The day before, both men had been wounded by a bomb blast in the city of Bakhmut in the eastern Donbas region, where Russian forces have been mercilessly shelling for months.
