HAHA, that is pretty funny. Probably would have been a smarter idea to do this in the winter.

But who wants a popsicle in the winter?

This is a marketing stunt gone awry, which probably will end up giving the popsicle more publicity than it would have otherwise gotten.

Good point, I didnt think about that!

Yet for record breaking it would be smart to try again when it is cooler out.

Must be a awesome scene when the street was filled with gooey popsicle.

It did sound pretty cool, wish i would have been there to see it.

When I first saw the article or an article about it, it said NY streets flooded, I was imagining cars driving through a foot of melted ice cream. :P
