"This turned out just fine. It is cold and refreshing. However, our family did not care for it. We decided to eat watermelon as watermelon!!!"

"I made this for Labor Day! I doubled the recipe and cut the sugar into a 1/2 and added some Splenda to the mix. It was very refreshing and not too overly powering sweet. I think I might it as a Popsicle next time."
