“Did you know that the average 4 – 8 year old eats 21 teaspoons of sugar per day? That’s like eating 6 ½ lunch boxes full of sugar per year! My children love juice...
Yosicle from Popsicle
I grew up eating Popsicles. I remember getting money from my parents or my grandmother and running after the ice cream truck as soon as I heard that magical sound indicating they were driving into my neighborhood.
We never knew when the truck was coming or what exactly would be on it but darn, some of my best Summer memories are from a gang of little kids wielding their parents money trying to make the truck stop. Good times.
When they were younger and in my more neurotic days, I used to make them eat them in the bathtub. I am much better about it now. They can have them in the kitchen or outside or pretty much anywhere as long as they don't walk around the house with them.
I was thrilled when Popsicle asked me about being an ambassador. Especially since I think that the Fudgsicle is about the best invention ever. That is my absolute most favorite dessert in the world. I love them and so does my entire family.
We also many of the other products that Popsicle makes as well. One of the fun parts about this ambassadorship is getting to try some of their new products as they come out. We were recently sent some new products from Yosicle.
The iconic Popsicle® brand is a longtime family favorite. In 2012, Popsicle® is introducing two delicious new combinations, including a candy partnership and an unexpected twist – Yosicle™ – that combines a Popsicle® pop and yogurt!
Popsicle® and yogurt – together at last! Popsicle® has delivered another tasty combination with the introduction of the Yosicle™ line, featuring four yummy varieties:
Yosicle™ Torpedo!™ | This new variety features three flavors in each low-fat pop: Purple Berry, Watermelon and Vanilla.
Yosicle™ Layerz!™ | This new variety features two flavors in each low-fat pop: Cotton Candy & Vanilla and Orange & Vanilla flavored pops.
Yosicle™ Duos!™ Watermelon-Vanilla and Cotton Candy-Vanilla | This new variety features vanilla-flavored pops coated with watermelon and cotton candy flavored ice.
Yosicle™ Duos!™ Purple Berry-Vanilla and Cherry-Vanilla | This new variety features vanilla-flavored pops coated with purple berry and cherry flavored ice.
Each variety of low-fat pops contains 10% nonfat yogurt and is an excellent source of calcium per two-pop serving. Yosicle™ pops will be available nationwide this May in 12- pack boxes.
Boxes of Yosicle™ and Popsicle® pops are available in grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.99.
My kids each have their new favorite Yosicle pops and they really love them. My son even went so far as to put each child's name on their favorite box with a Sharpie. I guess this was so no one would get confused.
