Memorial day is supposed to be the day Americans come together to pay respect to the people who've died while serving the country—or, if you're Ivanka Trump, make popsicles. What a better way to honor fallen soldiers than with a nostalgic childhood treat and a little "adult beverage?" (Commence: gentle teeheehees). Of course, Memorial Day also doubles as the start of summer for many in the United States, so it's not exactly surprising—or wrong even—that the brand came up with a recipe.

A Canadian truth and reconciliation commission wanted an apology from the Roman Catholic Church in its extensive list of recommendations in a 2015 report.
