Today, we're diving deep into the frosty reaches of the dessert world with a chilling and thrilling recipe theme: Icy Encounters: The Fascinating World of Isopod Icicles. Don’t worry, no real bugs were harmed in the making of this recipe. We're using delicious ingredients to mimic the cool and curious shapes of isopods, creating a dessert that's as fascinating to look at as it is to eat. So, bundle up, and let’s get started on these frosty treats!

Isopod Icicles Recipe


  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 cups clear lemon-lime soda
  • 1/2 cup sugar (you may adjust this based on your sweetness preference)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Gummy worms
  • Ice mold trays (preferably elongated shapes to mimic isopods)


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the blueberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture comes to a light simmer. Allow it to cool slightly.
  2. Using a blender, puree the blueberry mixture until smooth. Strain it through a fine mesh to remove any solids, letting the smooth liquid collect into a bowl.
  3. Stir the clear lemon-lime soda into the blueberry puree mixture. The soda will give your icicles a slightly effervescent vibe, mimicking the icy coolness of a real-life isopod encounter.
  4. Place one or two gummy worms into each of your ice mold slots. These will serve as the legs of your isopod icicles, adding a fun and slightly creepy visual element to the treat.
  5. Carefully pour the blueberry and soda mixture over the gummy worms in the ice mold trays, making sure each compartment is filled to the brim.
  6. Freeze the isopod icicles for at least 4 hours, or overnight for best results.
  7. Once frozen, gently remove your isopod icicles from the molds. They should be vibrant in color, with the gummy worms acting as a fun contrast to the icy exterior.
  8. Serve immediately and enjoy a refreshing, bug-themed treat that's guaranteed to be a conversation starter at any gathering!

This Icy Encounters recipe not only serves as a delightful dessert but also pays homage to the fascinating world of isopods without harming any real-life creatures. It's a perfect way to cool down and add a little excitement to your day.
