I was wondering how I could kick off the first day of summer on my blog. And, thanks to the generous folks at Ruby’s Rockets, I’ve got just the thing…
Every day, I get a lot of emails from companies asking me to try their products. I’m very picky about what I will share on my blog, so it has to be something really cool to get my attention. So when I was asked if I would give Ruby’s Rockets a try (which is a new line of healthy popsicles made entirely from fruits and vegetables, with no added sugar), I thought, what the heck. And you know what? They are really good. My daughter thought that they tasted like a frozen smoothie, and I agree. If Ruby’s Rockets were around when my kids were young, they definitely would have been a staple in our freezer. And, the only sweetening in them is organic white grape juice. They’re low-sugar, vegan, gluten-free, fat free (1 flavor is low-fat), GMO-free, non-dairy, kosher and NO added sugar or high fructose corn syrup! Plus, how can you not love flavors like Rock-It Red, Galaxy Green and Orbit Orange?
Ruby’s Rockets are launching the pops in Portland this weekend, and have a few events happening at Zupan’s market, should you live in Portland and want to give them a try. Here’s the Portland details:
Friday, June 21:
Zupan’s Burnside 2340 West Burnside Portland, OR 10-12pm
Zupan’s Macadam 7221 SW Macadam Portland, OR 2-4pm
Zupan’s Belmont 3301 SE Belmont Portland, OR 5-7pm
And, for all of the rest of you, there is a chance to win something very cool. The folks at Ruby’s have offered a giveaway for my readers. A “Summer Supply” of Ruby’s Rockets, which is 12 boxes of frozen pops! All you have to do is leave a comment, along with your name (and email address), and tell us what your favorite summer fruit is. The contest is open to U.S. residents only. Good luck!
Disclosure: I was provided with samples of the ice pops to taste, and Ruby’s Rockets is providing ice pops to the winner. All opinions are always my own.
