Oprah's book club is great, but now we want to sign up for ice pop club.

Each year around the holiday season, Oprah names her "Favorite Things." The mix of cooking, fashion, tech, beauty and pet gifts offer a huge variety, but we've yet to see her latest obsession on the list.

In what might just be a sneak peek into a future business venture—or a future Favorite Thing list addition—@oprah took us inside her kitchen this week as she checked in with her @oprahmagazine fans.

Filmed by her BFF and the co-host of CBS This Morning @gayleking, Oprah reveals, "We started a thing this summer with popsicles. Now it has become...a thing."

A thing that's branded "Promised Land Popsicle Shop." Oprah then shows off a perfectly organized basket of ice pops that correlates with a framed menu of their current lineup of 15 flavors. (We volunteer as tributes to taste test them all!)

The first-ever flavor Oprah named "The Blood" since it's made with Welch's grape juice—the same grape juice she drank in communion as a kid at church. Oprah then tapped her chef pal to help dream up 14 more ice pop options, including:

  1. Cantaloupe Passion Ginger
  2. Coconut Lime
  3. Dreamsicle ("I always loved a Dreamsicle, but we couldn't afford that," Oprah reminisces. "The popsicle truck would come and we'd watch the other kids go get popsicles.")
  4. Mango Passion Lime
  5. Nectarine Raspberry
  6. Peach and White Grape
  7. Pineapple Ginger Lemonade
  8. Pineapple Mint
  9. Plum and Grape
  10. Tequila-Spiked Peach
  11. Strawberry Lemonade
  12. Strawberry Banana
  13. Strawberry Watermelon
  14. White Grape and Yuzu Lemonade

"This is what happens when you can't afford the popsicle truck, and you grow up," she concludes, reflecting on a full drawer-full of freezer pops.

While we won't be able to savor all 15 flavors (watch out, Baskin-Robbins...) we can all recreate a couple thanks to The Blood recipe and a new Margarita Popsicle recipe the icon/ice pop ace shared on the Oprah website. (P.S. If boozy pops are your jam, don't miss our Moscow Mule Ice Pops!)
