This past weekend, we went to a Charlotte Independence soccer game with our friends Ava and Mariano. It was our first time going to a game and the stadium was really cute! I kind of felt like I was back home at the town park. It was filled with bleachers, kids running up and down the field with friends, and food trucks serving up summer snacks.
Next year, I would try to go to a soccer game earlier in the season before it gets too hot. Like when we went to the Bayern Munich game, it was in the 90s, our seats were in direct sunlight, and I could feel the sweat dripping down the small of my back. But then I saw kids walking by with pretty popsicles, and I realized: King of Pops was there! MPR and I each got a Raspberry Lime popsicle and they were so refreshing. It definitely lived up to the hype. Other notable flavors were coconut banana orange 🍌🍊 and mojito 🍹.
I don’t know how I’ve gotten through 75% of summer in Charlotte without a King of Pops popsicle, but now I’m hooked. It’s kind of dangerous knowing that their pop-up shop is just a short walk down the rail trail. Now that it’s starting to cool down we’ll be taking Rufio on long walks again, so I’m going to try to squeeze in as many more popsicles as I can before summer officially ends. ☀️
