I am literally in love with King of Pops popsicles if you want me to be completely honest. They are so yummy and packed with tons of flavor. I really enjoy having them during the summer because in Atlanta it can get sweaty af outside. So here are some flavors you can enjoy while you are outside or maybe inside during the summer!

1. Cookies & Cream

This has been one of my favorites this summer, it feels like you are eating real cookies!

2. Chocolate Sea Salt

Okay, now you can't go wrong with a chocolate popsicle with a little sea salt! This is so me while eating this popsicle. Now go and enjoy this "frozen" treat!

3. Banana Caramel

Okay now these are 2 flavor pairings that were made for each other, what a refreshing and somewhat healthy popsicle to have in the summer.

4. Caramel Latte

Okay, now I'm thinking that Starbucks may have been the inspiration for this flavor, but I am honestly not upset by this. You really can get all of your energy from this pop during the sweet summertime.

5. Strawberries n Cream

Strawberries are a must in the summer, so why not put it in a pop? I love this pop because it gives it that sweet taste without going too crazy.

6. Banana Puddin'

This is exactly what you need in the summer and is such a staple flavor if you are anywhere near a King of Pops stand in the south, like Georgia. Georgia summers get really hot!!

7. Peaches N Cream

Now whats a pop in Georgia without peaches? So maybe you don't live in Georgia, thats okay! You can still enjoy this sweet pop outside while hanging out with your friends and family! Maybe even share the delish pop with them!

8. Strawberry Lemonade

I am such a lemonade girl, so naturally I had to try this pop and boy is it packed with the right mix of lemonade and strawberries!

9. Blueberry Lemonade

You typically don't think that blueberries mix with lemonade, but during the summer they sure as heck do! I certainly am a fan of this flavorful pop.

10. Watermelon Mojito

Give me all the watermelon from this pop! Watermelon itself has been such a staple of mine growing up, so i really enjoyed having it in this pop to remember what it was like growing up in the summer!

11. Blackberry Honey

Now usually I wouldn't be hugging onto this flavor for the summer, but it proved me wrong! I loved the flavors together, they meshed so perfectly!

The Unspoken Dangers of 'Mukbang' Culture

Ever wondered why you can't stop clicking on these addictive, self-made eating shows?

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past five years, you've probably heard of the internet trend commonly referred to as a mukbang, or "eating show." These self-produced video clips typically involve one hungry individual, their filming device, and an obscene amount of delicious foods.

Though these broadcasts originated all the way from South Korea (hence the foreign vocabulary), the growing popularity of eating videos has taken the internet by storm. Nowadays as you scroll through YouTube, you'll find an outrageous amount of uploads with titles like "10,000 CALORIE PASTA MUKBANG," "EATING EVERYTHING ON THE MCDONALD'S MENU," or "THE ULTIMATE CHOCOLATE CHALLENGE."

Popular 'mukbangers' such as Peggie Neo, Megan McCullom, and Steven Sushi have made a sizable profit off of their viral eating shows, some collecting tens of thousands of dollars in revenue.

So, what's the big deal you say? You order a large quantity of food, indulge in said food, film yourself completing this menial task, and upload to the internet for money and fame. On the outside, this may seem like a luxurious lifestyle, but behind the camera lens sits an individual battling their own demons and influencing the world of social media to partake in their harmful behaviors.

Mukbanger Livia Adams ("Alwayshungry" on YouTube) has opened up about her unhealthy relationship with food in the past, praising herself for fasting several hours in order to justify her over-indulgence on camera.

Similarly, internet sensation Trisha Paytas claims to diet and starve herself for weeks just to be able to satisfy her subscribers with epic mukbangs, which are essentially binges.

In all actuality, these social media celebrities are negatively impacting (and possibly triggering) vulnerable viewers.

Many fans only see the highlight reel of YouTubers shoveling bowls of cereal or boxes of doughnuts into their mouths, yet remain completely unaware of what truly goes on behind-the-scenes. Messages saying:

"I'm on a diet... watching this is giving me some sort of satisfaction, like as tho I ate, you know?"
"I watch these videos because I know I physically can't afford to eat like this because I gain weight too easily."
"When having an eating disorder, watching Trisha's mukbangs is sorta comforting in a way omg"

flood the comments sections of Paytas' videos. Quite obviously, fans young and old are heavily influenced by this content and continue to support these creators to fulfill a self-destructive need.

Additionally, famous mukbang accounts never seem to include the painful after-effects of their ginormous feasts in videos. Fitness model Stephanie Buttermore flaunts her slim physique just days after consuming over 10,000 calories for a challenge, giving the impression that her previous overindulgence had no repercussions on her health whatsoever. Because Buttermore is a trained, athletic young woman, she was able to quickly bounce back after a series of workouts and low-calorie meals.

On the contrary, if a sedentary woman of about the same age were to attempt this challenge, she would most likely feel sluggish, irritable, bloated, stomach discomfort, and even vomitous post challenge. Eating regularly like this could lead to bigger issues such as heart disease, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and certain types of cancer. Unfortunately, because topics like these aren't glamorous and attractive to subscribers, mukbangers often edit them out.

Now don't get me wrong. Though not everyone who uploads a mukbang to the internet has an eating disorder or an evil agenda, they have to realize the kind of audience they're appealing to. This generation is more susceptible than ever to emulate the actions and words of their favorite celebrities. Young boys and girls look up to successful adults, and influencers should be remembered for the change they inspired, not the disease they encouraged.

Being A Vegetarian In College Isn't Easy

Living on a college student budget does not make trying to eat healthy and be a veterinarian easy.

Being on a college student budget for groceries does not make being a vegetarian easy.

Since my senior year of high school, I have been a vegetarian and I never had a hard time until college came around. Living at home and having your mom make you dinner, especially a vegetarian one, is a blessing I took for granted. Now that I have to juggle paying for bills, gas, and groceries every week, it makes it so much harder.

We all know how expensive fruits and vegetables are, and having a budget of $30-$50 a week for food limits the amount of food you can get for your money. Yes, there are alternatives to eating meat, but the substitutes like veggie patties and veggie burgers are still rather pricey.

Don't even get me started on trying to find a decent meal while living on campus, and having to pray they make a vegetarian option for dinner.

Salads get boring after a while and having carbs for every meal isn't healthy. It is sad that we live in an age where healthy foods are still so much more expensive than a burger or fries, and converting back to having meat again just isn't an option.

Pasta is amazing, but try having it for every meal.

Going out to eat is also a struggle because fast food is geared towards people who eat meat, so finding something other than a salad on the menu is a hit or miss. No one likes having to be the one to always have to say, "If we eat there, is there something I can actually have?" or being at a restaurant and realizing there's nothing there for you besides soup or a salad.

Not liking or eating meat is a struggle.

Meat lovers, I'm jealous.
