Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Ruby Rocket’s. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Summer is here which in Mason’s world means that he can have an ice pop three times a day because it’s hot outside. In Mason’s world if it’s hot outside you NEED to eat ice pops! It is after all THE ONLY way to to cool down on a hot day. Normally I would limit him. No Mason, you can’t have three ice pops a day, you can have three ice pops a week MAX.
Except lucky for Mason (and Kyla for that matter), Ruby Rocket’s Veggie & Fruit Pops came along. I can already tell it’s going to totally make his entire summer because now I barely bother limiting him to one a day. You might think I’m crazy but let me tell you a little about Ruby Rocket’s and you may get on board with me!
Ruby Rocket’s are all natural ice pops that contain fruits and vegetables in each ice pop. They’re GMO free, only contain ingredients that a child can pronounce and are full of “good-for-you” vitamins and nutrients. They do have sugar in them but it’s from the naturally occurring sugar that you’d find in the fruits and vegetables used in the frozen pops. Depending on which flavor you have the frozen pops have about 4-6 grams of sugar which isn’t too bad at all!
As you can see they have a bunch of flavors with the first five launched this month!
- Celestial Cherry
- Far Out Fudge
- Meteorite Mango
- Gravity Grape
- Planetary Pink Lemonade
- Galaxy Green
- Orbit Orange
- Rock-It Red
These ice pops have ingredients like Tomato, Beet, Dates, Sweet Potatoes, Cherry, Apple, Butternut Squash, Mango, White Grape, Purple Sweet Potato and more!
Do you see now why I don’t mind the kids having an ice pop a day when it’s Ruby Rocket’s!? Not only do these pops have a variety of fruits and vegetable in each ice pop but they also taste delicious as well. Both kids ask for them at least once a day and now I don’t feel bad saying “yes”, sometimes I even let them go for seconds. I’m pretty sure it’s the only way I’m ever getting Purple Sweet Potato into Mason’s mouth at the age of 5.
We are quickly working through all the ice pops and trying all the different flavors. The kids LOVE them but so far Planteary Pink Lemonade seems to be one of Mason’s favorite. Kyla and I love the Celestial Cherry, that’s the bright red pop she’s eating above.
Mason likes to make sure that Kyla gets a different flavor so that they can share. Kyla on the other hand doesn’t mind sharing with Mason as long as she can get some too.
Ruby Rocket’s frozen pops have AT MOST 40 calories per ice pop and they have no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. You can feel good about giving these pops to your kids and having a treat of your own!
Ruby Rocket’s are $4.99 for a box of six frozen pops and you can find out where to buy them here.
