Today's a scorcher in NYC (96 degrees!) and that definitely calls for an afternoon Mister Softee ice cream break. I've got frozen treats on the brain, which is probably why I totally flipped out when I came across this photograph earlier this afternoon. At first, I thought they were delicious popsicles, but after a closer look, I realized they were actually incredibly realistic popsicle-shaped soaps! Etsy seller So Stinking Sweet, based in Cleveland, NY, creates handmade soaps in scents such as sparkling mandarin tangerine, sun-kissed raspberry, and watermelon taffy. The adorable soaps would make a great favor for summertime weddings or bridal showers, don't you think? —Heather Lee, Editor,
