As a mother, I am constantly looking for snacks and foods I can feel good about giving to my children. It’s summer so – right now- they are all about ice cream, popsicles, Jamba Juice, lemonade and frozen yogurt. Even though, I myself have my Ben & Jerry’s cravings every now and then, I know I can’t give my kids ice cream all the time. So, it’s good to know that there are frozen pops out there we can buy and feel good about.
When the good people behind Ruby’s Rockets reached out to me and asked us to sample some of their pops, I immediately said yes! Frozen fruit and vegetable pops? No GMO’s? No artificial colors or flavors?
Yes, send some over please. And fast!
My kids loved them . . . and what’s not to love with flavors like Galaxy Green (kiwi, spinach, and avocado), Rock-It Red (sweet potatoes, strawberries, carrots, and beets) and Orbit Orange (oranges, sweet potatoes, and carrots). Their favorite flavor was Orbit Orange. My oldest could tell the difference in the pops because they are not as sweet as Popsicle brand pops, but she still liked them. I even tried a few myself and liked them. And let’s be honest- with kids, give them anything cold, sweet and refreshing in a frozen “pop” form and they are happy.
What do I love about them? Ruby’s Rockets blends fruits, vegetables and probiotics into their pops. There are no added sugars or high fructose corn syrup and no artificial colors or flavorings. Each pop is also dairy-free, GMO-free, gluten-free, HFCS-free, egg-free, and vegan. Also, Ruby’s Rockets was created by a mother and her daughter, Ruby. I love this!
For more information, head on over to the Ruby’s Rockets website where you can order some pops online OR if you are in Seattle, Portland or Texas, look for Ruby’s Rockets at your local grocery store.
Every time you buy a box of Ruby’s Rockets you’re helping them donate 1% of all sales to a very worthy organization, Water.org. Visit the website for the latest and greatest news. . let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that Ruby’s Rockets makes it into more stores so we can all buy them for our kids!
