Popsicle Better For You Treats Giveaway


January has been a great month for us so far, and we’ve seen a lot of healthy products being given away as free samples. When I got the chance to work on the Better For You Popsicle campaign I was excited!

Like many other people I am trying to lose those holiday pounds. When you are working out, eating less, and weighing yourself, it’s always nice to be able to ‘treat’ yourself.

When I tried the Low Fat Fudgsicle Bars and Sugar Free Tropicals Popsicles I was pleasantly surprised.

Sometimes when you go for the low fat or sugar free option, you are sacrificing flavor. Or you get that fake sugar after taste. With both of the products, they tasted just fine, with the Fudgsicles I couldn’t tell the difference! And of course my 4 year old didn’t notice the popsicles were sugar free.

I have to admit when I buy popsicles, it’s usually the small Slow Melt Mighty Mini’s or the plastic tubed popsicles for my son. I rarely eat sweets.

According to a recent survey by Popsicle nearly 80% of moms admit to eating snacks and desserts that were purchased for their children. 3 in 4 moms agree its hard to find desserts and snacks the kids enjoy that are not bad for them, and 60% of moms agree it’s tough to find both desserts and snacks for themselves and the children to eat.

Low Fat Fudgsicles

Fudgiscle Bars

As I mentioned these tasted exactly the same as I remember a Fudgsicle tasting. At only 100 calories per bar, it’s a great better for you treat!

To put 100 calories in perspective, instead of having the Fudgsicle you could opt for 17 fat free pretzels, 5 dark chocolate kisses, or 8 shrimp and 2 tbsp of cocktail sauce.

You decide!

Sugar Free Tropicals

Popsicle Tropicals

When I sampled the Tropicals the flavor was pretty good, so far I’ve had the red and blue flavors. However the healthy upside to these? 10 calories per popsicle!

What else can you eat for 10 calories? 3.5 oz servings of Celery (boiled!), Cucumber, and Spinach. Yum!
