Can you solve the riddles?

Olly’s Riddle

I am the colour of grass
I have brothers and sisters
Growing together side by side
Sweet and sharp
Squeezed into a bottle
Ready to go pop.

Ethan’s Riddle

I am like a boomerang
I am like a yellow finger
I am as yellow as the sun
I am as smooth as an ice-cream
I hate monkeys
I am like an unwrapped present.
