Ring Pops With A Modern Twist

Changes

By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

Marilyn Monroe surely had no idea when she sang ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ that just a few decades later, another jewel would take over the hearts of ’90s children. That jewel, a much more affordable one, was Ring Pops. We loved them so much, that we would suck it down to the very, very last drop (and also used them to propose to all of our best friends, of course).

 

Well, as it turns out, they are getting a new and exciting upgrade! Ring Pop Gummy Gem Candy is about to be available for purchase at Walmart.  The legendary candy will be turned into gummy form, making it a whole lot more simpler to sneak romance into the movie theater!

 

In terms of the taste, they are a combination Sour Patch Kids and Gushers, since the outside is sweet, however the inside is filled with a sour gel.  The gummies have serious Instagram potential, and come in five unique tones and flavors, including Tropical Pineapple Orange, Cherry Apple, Lime Blue Raspberry and Blue Raspberry Watermelon.
