If you have the guts to actually try one, ketchup-flavoured popsicles are coming to Vancouver on June 22 in what might be the strangest food pop-up ever.

French's Ketchup and Happy Pops have teamed up to create the unique "Frenchsicle" popsicle and will be handing them out to the public for free on Granville Street from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

Two other one-day pop-ups are set for Ontario later this week.

Happy Pops is a Canadian business that serves up "all-natural ice pops made from real fruit and sweetened with organic cane sugar," according to a press release.

Now, they're serving up these interesting bright red pops for all the ketchup lovers out there. Some people will probably turn green in disgust if they tried one of these, though.

The release adds that "to honour shared Canadian heritage, for every Frenchsicle given away, French's will donate two meals to Food Banks Canada to address food insecurity in Canada."

French's also says that people can expect a "savoury tomato flavour" that's "perfectly balanced with a hint of salty sweetness."

Although that description sounds appealing, it's hard to believe ketchup popsicles could be that tasty. Who knows, though — frozen ketchup could be just the thing to cool you down this summer.

If you absolutely love to drench your food in ketchup, this might just be your next favourite popsicle flavour.

Either way, make sure to head down to grab one of these treats — to say you tried it, at least.
