It’s a little hard to believe that August only has a few days left and that this coming Sunday is September 1st! I know that you’re probably asking yourself where did the summer go? Well technically there’s still a few weeks left of summer and I’m going to relish it for as long as I can. I’m pretty sure that you can tell just how much I love summer- the sunshine, warm weather, being outside, outdoor parties, barbeques…
Another thing that I love about summer is that it’s a great time to enjoy some of my favorite frozen treats. Honestly, I’m the type of gal who will eat ice cream all year long (even when it’s snowing), but it’s certainly a bit more enjoyable on a hot summer day. Earlier this season I told you all about an Austin-based company that I’m crazy about: GoodPop! Their frozen treats caught my eye one day while shopping in Whole Foods and it’s been a love affair ever since. I’ve tried (and enjoyed) every single one of GoodPop’s flavors, but this one continues to be my favorite.
In fact, I’m eating one right now.
And although Banana Cinnamon is the most near and dear to my heart, all of the flavors are pretty spectacular.
Can you read the front of the box in that photo that states the calorie content for each pop? I have to admit- that’s what really sealed the deal for me purchase my first box. Less than 100 calories (and just 48 for the Watermelon Agave) for a delicious dessert? Yes, please.
Here’s a little more food for thought-
GoodPop All-Natural Frozen Pops are:
- Low Calorie 48-63 cal non-dairy; 85-95 cal dairy-based
- Made with lots of fresh fruit
- Made in small batches to ensure a great flavor
- Sweetened with fair trade USDA Organic Cane Sugar (organic evaporated cane juice)
- Gluten free
- Vegan (fruit pops)
- No refined sugars
- No artificial flavors or colors
- No high fructose corn syrup (hfcs)
Speaking of love: to keep the summer party rollin’ a little bit longer, the guys at GoodPop have offered to give one very lucky reader their own GoodPop party!
GoodPop will supply one winner with enough frozen treats to share with 25 friends.* I’m thinking that those 25 friends may like you even more when you introduce them to the deliciousness that is GoodPop!
