An Open Letter to Good Pops

Hello, Good Pops.

I am pregnant. And in pregnancy I have developed many new cravings.

1. Waffle House – Luckily, the über-unhealthy Waffle House in Austin is 14 miles from my house. I crave their pecan waffles, smothered and covered hash browns, and their bacon, egg and cheese biscuit. Other than the gas money, it’s a minor investment of about $15.00 for Husbanks and me to eat there.

2. Sweets – I disliked sweets so much before! I always refused cake at birthday parties and was overcome with questions about what P90X/South Beach/Atkins craze I was a part of. Nope. Never been on a carb-less diet. Just didn’t crave sweets. Icing made me nauseous to think about.

Now I buy ice cream and bake cakes so I always have something sweet on hand. I take trips to Mighty Fine for milkshakes. Husbanks has commented that I am finally his dream woman.

3. Sweet with Spicy – This is where you come in, Good Pops. No one has nailed this craving quite like you. For a pregnant woman in the summer, nothing beats your Mango Chile popsicle. It cools you down in the heat, and gives you satisfaction for your sweet tooth while inviting a bite of spice. Thank you, Good Pops. And thank you Deirdre and Emilie for bringing the Mango Chile popsicle into my life.

If there is a “Pregnant Austin Woman” magazine, you should buy an ad and make the ad a picture of the Mango Chile popsicle. OR hand out samples at Babies ‘R’ Us. We will come flocking.

You’re welcome.

    The mango chile is quite unique Hilary. That is why we are happy to share it with you and the rest of the world! Thank you!

      Maybe Good Pops should make an Ethiopian food flavor???

    Brian – During the first trimester, I had curry for most meals. Ryan called our baby “Baby Patel.”

    I thought 14 miles to Waffle House was a trip, but Ethiopia is much further.

    I have never had Ethiopian food, but there are a couple places in Austin that people love. Ask Lisa what I should order.
