Popsicle/Fudgsicle Review and Giveaway


THE REVIEW:

I have to admit it- I had forgotten how much I love reviewing stuff. I know that I have posted about how crazy my life was and I know I took a much needed break. But I really miss this.

Of course, it did not hurt to come home from a long day at work on Tuesday to a package with Popsicles in it. I am always excited when I get food to review and frozen chocolate goodness is one of my favorites.

I was also really interested when I read some of the information that I received from the sponsor. Did you know that according to a recent survey commissioned by Popsicle®, nearly 80% of moms admit to breaking into their children’s arsenal of snacks and desserts? Because of this, the survey revealed that the foods moms try most to avoid having in the house are candy and baked goods. It was honestly not something that I had even thought about until I had seen it written out for me, but it does not surprise me. What moms may not know is that there are snacks that both she and the kids will love! Popsicle and Fudgsicle offer a variety of better-for-you treats, including Low Fat Fudgsicle Triple Chocolate bars and Sugar Free Popsicle Tropicals ice pops.


The first product was Fudgsicle® Triple
Chocolate Low Fat Bars
. It was an 18 pack box that contains milk chocolate, white chocolate and dark chocolate Fudgsicles. I have actually tried all of them at this point in time, and they are all really good. My favorite by far is the milk chocolate. And I figure at 60 calories and 1.5grams of fat, they really are a great and easy snack. And of course when Sara Rose saw me eating one, she needed one too. And in Sara's words- I love the brown lickypops. So it is a winner for her as well.
