Compare homemade popsicles, of simply pouring your favorite juice into a mold and freezing to these store bought, more expensive pops.
Ingredient statement to homemade popsicles: apple juice. (Cranberry and orange are some of our favorites.)
Ingredient statements to Otter Pops:
1 ingredient (from nature)
Offers other nutrients (like O.J.'s vitamin C, calcium, and iron)
Store bought (comparing last popsicle):
3 different sweeteners, 2 in which are cheap and less natural
Any popsicle with flavors like "cotton candy" should cause you to stop and reflect.
Start a new tradition of including your kids in choosing and pouring the juice. I can tell you that it delights kids in watching the transformation of juice into a frozen treat. Once again, being creative usually brings bonding, memories, and a few extra dollars in your pocket by the end of summer.
