New Icee Flavor: Coconut Pee

As a parent of preschool age twins, I often hear conversations that...well, just read on.

Getting ready to head 45 minutes south on a shopping trip, I pull through a drive-thru to get the girls an Icee. I order cherry flavor. I hand it back and we start our drive. Here's what they say to one another,

"This tastes like coconut pee," said Sophia to Ella. Ella takes a sip.  "Yea. It does. It tastes like coconut pee."

They talk about this "coconut pee" matter of factly for a bit. 

After clarifying with them that they are saying it tastes like "coconut pee" I ask, "Does coconut pee taste good?"

"Yes," they tell me in unison.
